Set in the fashionable streets of Palermo Soho, Legado Mitico offers luxurious boutique accommodation. The design and decoration of the hotel is more traditional and classical than many of the more modern offerings in this area. The hotel draws on the rich historical culture of Argentina with the rooms individually themed around famous figures, such as Carlos Gardel and Evita. Each is decorated with great attention to detail using period antique pieces, along with more modern luxurious comforts such as flat screen televisions, jacuzzis (in some rooms) and comfortable king size beds. The cultural theme extends into the communal areas with a small library in the lounge where the more inquisitive guest can read all about the historic figures that inspire the decoration of the room. Aside from the large lounge area there is also a sun deck and jacuzzi for guests to enjoy. Service is of a high standard and the hotel’s location excellent.
A wonderful, historic property set on a quiet street in the heart of Recoleta. Hub Porteno has a slightly different feel from the larger hotels in this area, with a feel more akin to a home or a private members’ club, with a very personal level of service from the concierge (who, rather than sit at a reception is just a phone call away). The building has been lovingly restored and the attention to detail comes to the fore in the quality of the furnishings, all of which are original antique pieces, or produced more recently by local artisans. Specially cured leather lines the walls of the sitting room and lounge, hand crafted mirrors handing on the walls of the spacious rooms. The centre piece is the hotel’s restaurant, Tarquino, which has quickly become one of the most famous in the city, for the top chef (trained at the world-famous El Bulli) who brings high concept fine dining techniques to traditional Argentine food to delicious and inventive effect. Breakfasts are a delight, enjoyed in the glass roofed dining room with trees swaying overhead. Hub Porteno is a hotel that, instead of an initial ‘wow’, will win you over time with it’s understated detail and quality. All in all, a class act.

Certainly standing out from most other Mendoza hotels, EntreCielos is very much on the contemporary cusp and bravely looks ahead to luxury wine lodges of the future. In-keeping with the minimal modernist design, the exterior is non-descript and inside takes the mould of a concrete bunker. However, don’t let this discourage you because the décor of soft, sparkling floor and ceiling lights as well as the rich textures and inviting soft furnishings gives it a stylish and luxurious warmth. A total renovation of the property was completed in May 2011 and the rough bare walls interrupted with sheer glass playing out the beyond scenery of vines, mountains and skies makes for a pleasant journey of contrast when walking the maze-like hallways. There is a large spa modelled on the traditional Hammam, where you can get a massage, facial, sit back in steam rooms, or plunge yourself between hot and cold pools. Five categories of rooms are grouped and styled to the different ages of wine, and all have private terraces, iPod docks, air con and free WiFi. The ‘Young’ or superior rooms exude a fun vibe and are good for families. ‘Classic’ or superior deluxe rooms are slightly bigger, come with a four-poster bed or twin and have bright, vibrant bathrooms with a freestanding bath tub. Next up is the ‘Reserva’ or junior suites with similar amenities to the Classic yet is 50m² and at 85 m² is the ‘Gran Reserva’ or Duplex suite (of which there are 4), which enjoys two levels and unique views of the Andes, vineyards and surrounding gardens. At the top is ‘Grand Cru’ or super king with 95 m² to roam about in, a private terrace with Jacuzzi, rainforest shower and coffee machine. Currently uncompleted but soon to pip the Grand Cru is the exclusively private vineyard loft. With a good range of activities and a helpful team of staff, the food served in the in-house restaurant is very good and well matched with the wine from their cavernous cellar.

A chic and highly anticipated addition to Mendoza’s collection of boutique properties, the assuredly stylish Vines Resort and Spa packs a lot of substance in with its cool elegance. A contemporary, low-lying structure, the hotel seems to have been built so as not to disturb the uniform horizon of the Uco Valley’s perfectly combed vineyards. The smart collection of twenty-two villas echo this style and with their exposed interior stone facades, wall-to-ceiling windows, earthy tones and simple elegance combine for an aura of modernistic calm. There are one or two bedroom sizes available, and each comes with its own modern kitchen, sitting areas and private patio. And there’s more. The hotel has additionally modeled itself on being a culinary resort as well, managing to secure a restaurant designed by the internationally renowned chef, Francis Mallmann. There is a Winery on the estate for tastings, wine making tours and activities, not to mention a full spa for expert pampering. Try some horse riding in the morning through the vineyards and high blue skies, followed by breakfast and a swim in the infinity pool that drops off into the combed lines of twisted vines beyond. In the afternoon, maybe some wine tasting with lunch and a spoiling treatment at the spa.

Spend your time enjoying the beautiful Mendoza region. Visit wineries, enjoy the restaurants or simply relax at your hotel.
Our expert local guide will collect you from your hotel and bring you for an enjoyable sample of the different wineries in the Mendoza area.
The Central Valley or Primera Zona (the closest to the city of Mendoza) includes the counties of Luján de Cuyo, Maipú, Guaymallén and Godoy Cruz. This is the home of Malbec and where some of the most prestigious Argentine wineries are located. Originally from Bordeaux, France, this variety found the ideal place to prosper in Mendoza given the agro-climatic conditions of the area.
It's a private tour and can be entirely specialised to your requirements, just let your travel designer know if you have any special requests.
During the tour we'll visit three different wineries, we suggest a mix of smaller, boutique establishments and the larger operations, to give you a chance to see the contrasts and differences. During the visit you'll always be accompanied by your private guide, though during the visits and tastings themselves you'll also be with the wineries' own guide (and there may be other guests). We can arrange for visits to be entirely private if you prefer.
Finally, in the afternoon, we stop at one of the top Bodega restaurants (such as La Tupina or Ruca Malen) for a chance to really enjoy the wine as it is meant to be; with great food. You have a gourmet tasting lunch paired with wines from the Bodega.
You will be collected from your hotel after breakfast by your local expert guide to begin your private full day's tour of the best wineries situated in Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo and Maipu valleys. This tour will be tailored on the day to your preferences, as there exists a nice variation of larger to more boutique and family-owned wineries to choose from in this area. At each winery you do visit there will be a tour and wine tasting session. Lunch will be at a restaurant or bodega of your choice along the tour, with helpful recommendations made by your guide too. You will be delivered back to your hotel at the end of the day.

It's up to you how you want to spend your time in Argentina's Glacier Region, and we can organise several private or shared tours according to your interests and time should you like to.
You will be brought by private vehicle through the national park, a beautiful drive of some 2.5 hours with stops to enjoy the view, including the Corner of Sighs, where you get your first full view of the Glacier. During the drive, you might catch a glimpse of red and grey foxes fleeing across the heathery landscape, whilst in the distance cinnamon-coloured guanaco deer balance on rocky crags and below, large Patagonian hares leap from bushes across streams. Along the roadside crawl little armadillos and if you are very lucky, you might just see the tawny back of a puma. Rosy flamingos gather at the water’s edge while hawks and kites hover over the hillside, eyeing scurrying voles and other rodents. And, just possibly, way way up above, you might spy the magnificent silhouette of the condor.
Arriving at the humbling sight of the vast Perito Moreno Glacier, your guide will then take you on a tour along the specially built walkways. These give you superb viewpoints and photo taking opportunities while your guide brings to life the environmental and local importance of the glacier.
