That more than a few guests arrive by private helicopter gives some sense of the sort of place Ponta dos Ganchos Resort is. Occupying a prime spot on the sandy white Emerald Coast in the southern province of Santa Catarina, the property is pleasantly removed from Brazil’s highly developed resort scene. No Copacabana-style contemporary high-rises are to be found on this section of the shoreline — just twenty-five privately sited cabanas, scattered across the lush natural landscape.

No grass mats or rustic mosquito nets adorn the guest quarters, however. The chic air-conditioned bungalows are completely outfitted with up-to-date features; Egyptian cotton sheets, flat screen televisions, fireplaces, and internet access keep guests cozy inside, while soft hammocks and chaise lounges on private verandas provide ideal vantage points for panoramic sea views. Higher-end bungalows offer terrace jacuzzis, wine cellars, plunge pools, and, for the ultimate in preserve-the-mystery amenities, spacious double bathrooms with separate his-and-hers facilities.

Naturally, the fish is fresh and the caipirinhas free-flowing at the resort’s restaurant; honeymooners who spare no expense in the quest for romance can book dinner service on the torch-lit private island. Far from the legendary nightlife of Brazil’s cultural capitals, the Ponta dos Ganchos could be on the quiet side for companions who don’t have much to say to one another. Leisure-loving couples will adore the hideaway, though, where a massage in the seaside tent or an afternoon paddle through the clear bay complete the postcard-perfect experience.
