The Ponta dos Ganchos spa using products by Germaine de Capuccini has three small pavilions, each with a private garden and a view of the sunset, the channel or the Bay of Ganchos
The Hotels you (Charlie Lockwood) selected were superb in Peru, Chile, Argentina and Brazil, what a pleasure it has been to stay in the Belmond Hotels, everyone was so helpful, and the Four Seasons in Buenos Aires was equally superb

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.
