Winter Runaway: Ponta Dos Ganchos

Discover a discreet Brazilian beach beauty

Full_pontadosganchos2

You. Brazil. The World Cup. This Summer.
 
Sounds like a party. With one exception: Ponta Dos Ganchos Resort
 
It's not that they aren't obsessed with soccer there too, it's just that, you know, it's a private, romantic paradise of oceanfront bungalows. That's all.
 
So go ahead, catch futbol fever as you fly through Rio. After soaking in the carnival atmosphere for a few days, decompress with a direct flight south to Santa Catarina peninsula, where an oasis of lush vegetation and prime white sand beaches awaits.
 
Among these secluded, gloriously appointed bungalows with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the bay, the only sports you'll find are whatever games you and your girlfriend can come up with after hours.
 
Well, technically there is a game room. And we're sure you'll be able to catch more World Cup action at the restaurant, bar, and lounge featured at the resort.
 
But when you are toasting champagne in a hot tub on your private deck as the setting sun sparkles over the crystal waters of this true Brazilian beauty, we don't think you'll mind catching the highlights later.

Game on, as they say.
