Guest Testimonial

Thank you for upholding the A&K standard to which we have become accustomed over the years. Nothing replaces sheer competence in travel planning.

- RK, Bristol

Ponta dos Ganchos is an exclusive resort located on a privately-owned peninsula, surrounded by the exuberant Emerald Coast. Known as one of the most exclusive beach resorts in Brazil, stands where the waters of the Emerald Coast meet the lush rainforest vegetation in a dazzling display of colour and light.

The resort's twenty five charming cabañas lie in perfect harmony with the breath-taking scenery. Dotted amongst the lush greenery, they are designed in rustic-chic style, their exteriors dominated by hardwood facias and huge expanses of glass. Inside the rustic theme contrasts with a slick, contemporary feel, exemplified by clean lined furniture and high design fittings. Meanwhile, simple fabric accents and natural light soften the overall feel.

The cabañas' outdoor spaces are simply superb - lovely hardwood decks surrounded by lush greenery create peaceful, private spaces.
