Located on a private peninsula near Florianopolis on Brazil’s south coast, Ponta dos Ganchos is one of the country’s most exclusive beach resorts. A ridge of Atlantic rainforest runs down to the water, where three tiny islands horseshoe around a sandy bay. There is a thatched restaurant just 10 feet from the beach, and paddle across to one of the islands and you find a bar that’s illuminated by torches at night. You are in the middle of nowhere here, and Ponta dos Ganchos delivers the dream: idyllic landscapes of emerald sea and forest, contemporary interiors in 20 beautiful bungalows (some with private plunge pools, saunas and jacuzzis) and service that’s second to none (all meals, including breakfast, are served at any hour of the day).

At the peak of the hill is Christ the Redeemer, the art deco statue of Jesus Christ and icon of Rio. After the visit of the Corcovado, the tour continues to Sao Conrado area with a brief stop at the Pepino beach where one can appreciate hang gliders overhead. Transfer back to the hotel.
