The highlight of many trips to Brazil is a stay in a beach hotel on lovely Santa Catarina Island. Book your room at the Vila das Palmeiras, right across the street from one of the island’s most beautiful beaches. This small, classy accommodation is one of the smartest hotels in Florianopolis. Hercílio Luz International Airport, at the south end of the island, is about a one-hour drive from the hotel, or you can drive the approx. 700 km from Sao Paulo to Florianopolis. All of the attractive guest rooms at the Hotel Vila das Palmeiras have either ocean views or private balconies overlooking the beach. Guests enjoy a sumptuous breakfast in the first-floor public areas every morning or can take advantage of 24-hour room service. After a peaceful night at the Hotel Vila das Palmeiras, you can wake up and in a few minutes be playing in the Florianopolis surf. The town centre of Canasvieiras is also within walking distance. Popular local attractions include the Cruz e Sousa Palace, Hercílio Luz Bridge, the thermal baths in the Santo Amaro da Imperatriz area, and the 1875 Mercado Publico.
