A world away from the Copacabana high-rise this is the kind of place where guests arrive by private helicopter, incognito. (Brazil apparently has more private helicopters and Ferraris per capita than any other country in the world). Secluded and luxurious the resort is beachside on the Emerald Coast in the southern province of Santa Catarina. A mere twenty-five oh, so private cabanas, are dotted iamongst the lush garden landscape. Getting away from it all doesn't mean going without the creature comforts; expect air-conditioning, flat screen televisions, 400 threadcount sheets, plunge pools and private verandahs. For the ultimate romantic escape treat yourself to caipirinhas in the bar and then book a dinner a deux on the torch-lit private island. A massage in a sea-side tent will also be good for your sensual side.
