Santa Catarina, Brazil
At Ponta dos Ganchos resort along Brazil’s emerald coast, bungalows and villas are stylish cocoons of relaxation, each one striking in its clean-lined design driven by Brazilian hardwoods, crisp white linens, and, in some cases, sultry bathtubs and plunge pools. At mealtime, amble to the restaurant, located on its own island and connected via an overwater walkway, to dine on fresh Brazilian dishes -- rice and beans; shrimp flambéed in cachaça -- supplemented by fruits and vegetables grown in the resort’s own organic garden.
