The riverside town of Encarnacion has become a tourism hub over the years, mostly thanks to a steady influx of domestic travelers who come to bathe in the Parana River to escape the country’s insufferable summertime heat. And as with any great beach destination, Encarnacion offers a number of chic boutiques and luxe hotels that cater to well-heeled holidaymakers. Here are the best in town.

1. Milord Hotel Boutique

Boutique Hotel

As Encarnacion’s most elegant boutique, Milord’s sophisticated modern design and first-rate amenities make it among the most sought-after hotels in the city. Sure, the exterior edifice may be akin to a Soviet-era concrete block, but the entire interior is tastefully decorated in an appealing contemporary style. Furthermore, its palm tree-lined swimming pool with built-in waterfall and outdoor dining space add to the appeal.

2. De la Costa Hotel

Resort, Hotel

Beach bums should make a beeline for De la Costa Hotel; a cheerful ocean inspired resort just meters from the bustling Playa San Jose. It may not be quite as extravagant as other hotels on this list, but its colorful and airy rooms complement the privileged riverfront location perfectly, making it a hit among sun-seeking holidaymakers from Paraguay and beyond. Ask for a room with a river view.

3. Hotel Luxsur

Independent Hotel

Travelers after something a little different should consider checking into Luxsur, a towering 4-star hotel known for its quirky and eccentric decor. Most of the 40 rooms and suites have been individually decorated in a unique theme, from Victorian-era pomp to African leopard print and fine Egyptian textile art. Best of all, the rooftop swimming pool with sweeping views of the city is an idyllic spot to catch some rays.

4. Carnaval Hotel Casino

Casino Hotel

Enjoy having a punt from time to time? Then why not stay at Carnaval, Encarnacion’s surprisingly luxurious casino hotel. This four-star complex features a bright orange and white color scheme throughout its well-adorned rooms, a vibrant theme that skillfully captures the exuberance of the city’s famous Carnaval. Best of all, the downstairs casino comes with all the slots and table games a gambler could possibly need.

5. Savoy Hotel Encarnación

As the only five-star option in the city, Savoy is the ideal place for travelers who relish in large luxurious hotels. All the amenities you would expect from an establishment of its kind can be found throughout, such as a fully equipped gym, marble-clad common areas, and an inviting outdoor garden and pool.

6. Le Club Resort Hotel

Boutique Hotel, Resort

Another excellent hotel resort in the city center, Le Club has a more traditional take on its interior design. The rooms, however, are decidedly more modern, characterized by a dark earthy color scheme that is remarkably easy on the eye. Active guests find the hotel particularly appealing for its comprehensive recreational center that includes a football pitch, indoor and outdoor tennis courts, a games room and a massive pool.

7. Del Sur Hotel-Museo

Boutique Hotel, Resort

Travelers who wish to stay on the western edge of town should opt for Del Sur Hotel-Museo, an expansive three-star resort popular with conferences and events. Set in a semi-rural region, this vast complex offers the tranquility of country living combined with the indulgence you would expect from such an establishment. Just don’t come expecting a museum.
