The southernmost reaches of South America host some of the most stunning vistas in the world, some of which can be enjoyed by the hot tub or swimming pool while you enjoy a glass of fine wine. With stretching lakes, rugged landscapes and the defined peaks of the Andes mountains layered with a dusting of snow, you really can’t beat it. Here are some of the finest hotels in the region that are so luxurious you may never want to leave.
Open your curtains and look out over the milky glacial lake and look into the distance for the rugged spears of Grey Glacier. After a long day’s hiking and exploring the Torres del Paine national park, the floors will heat you up, the masseur will unleash your knots and the menu will tantalise your taste buds. And don’t forget to claim your pisco sour on the house!
The architecture of the building, designed by Germán del Sol, is in keeping with the lay of the land, as well as being eco-friendly, with grass layering the slanted roofs inspired by Patagonian sheep-shearing sheds. The rooms are black and white, in a cute analogy with herds of Patagonian sheep. The Serrano, Balmaceda and Grey glaciers are easily accessible, as are the Prat and Baguales Corilleras.
This huge property is located centrally between the Los Glacieres National Park and El Calafate, and you can explore it by horse, on a mountain bike or on foot. Spend some time appreciating the natural beauty of your surroundings, and after a day of exploring and birdwatching, relax in the comfortable and chic hotel.
