Alongside some of the most awe-inspiring landscapes and wild open spaces, Patagonia is also home to some of the most well-designed, best located and downright luxurious hotels on the continent. For a South American luxury holiday to Patagonia, here’s a pick of the best places to lay your head.
Explora Patagonia – Chile
With sister hotels in the Atacama and on Easter Island, Explora Patagonia has one of the best locations of them all sitting on the shores of Lake Pehoe in the Torres del Paine National Park. Waking up here, you’re greeted with stunning views and first class cuisine to match. Explora hotels are known for their fantastic guides and variety of excursions ranging in difficulty for all levels of fitness.
Los Notros – Los Glaciers National Park
With an amazing location perched on the Peninsula de Magallanes, Los Notros is the only lodge with views of the Perito Moreno glacier. Just 70km from El Calafate has 32 guestrooms where the breath-taking views can be taken in from the luxury of your own bath. The Perito Moreno glacier is the focus of activities here though boat trips on the turquoise lake and guided walks ensure that the glacier can be viewed from all angles, and for the more intrepid, the six-hour ‘big ice’ tour allows you to strap on crampons and climb into the centre of the glacier itself.
Design Suites Calafate
Quirky and elegant, Design Suites Calafate is a boutique bolt hole created by one of Argentina’s most prestigious architects, Carlos Ott. The Lake View suites are well worth booking for the sweeping panoramas of Lago Argentin and the restaurant serves up progressive Argentinean cuisine as well as having a wide range of local wines. Style hounds with a nose for adventure, this one is for you.
