Owned by Nicholas James Raezey, Ponta dos Ganchos Exclusive Resort is located on a privately-owned peninsula, 40 km from the state capital of Florianópolis. The district of Governador Celso Ramos is a region immersed in history and tradition. The small fishing village represents a slice of the old-fashioned Brazil of colonial times where the most important elements of life are traditional activities such as fishing, embroidery and oyster and mussel farming. The 25 sophisticated and charming bungalows lay in perfect harmony with the breathtaking scenery.
Ponta dos Ganchos received the ISO 14.001 certification in 2011. This is the result of their involvement in the sustainable development and environmental management of the resort. For instance, they are participating in environmental projects and have installed sustainable energy systems throughout the resort. They have also set up an organic vegetable and herb garden where they grow salads, herbs, vegetables and fruits with no pesticides or fertilizers and are used in every dish they serve. They also give priority to local and regional suppliers and more than 90% of the workforce is from the local neighborhood.
