Expert Review

Located between Rio de Janeiro and Buenos Aires, the five-star resort Ponta dos Ganchos offers an idyllic hideout after a romp in either of those two madcap cities. Its 25 bungalows are staggered over a private peninsula dense with rainforest vegetation and rustling bamboo in Brazil’s southern Santa Catarina state. Most of them have wood-burning fireplaces and private saunas; some feature indoor Jacuzzis and outdoor plunge pools. The rustic-luxe vibe and casual dress code at this couples-only Relais & Châteaux resort ensures that stress is nonexistent. It attracts a mix of well-to-do South Americans, and American and European honeymooners. Lapping waves provide a soundtrack for the cliff-top spa. The three daily meals, included in the rate, start with a 10-course tasting-menu breakfast and end with a three-course dinner featuring local fare like world-famous Santa Catarina oysters. 2010 Smart Luxury Award winner
