Why Stay At LLao Llao Hotel and Resort, Golf - Spa
With its antler chandeliers, heated outdoor pool, and hilltop views of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the sprawling Llao Llao Hotel & Resort in Bariloche, Argentina, may be South America's most elegant alpine hotel.
This vast 1940 Patagonian hotel is a historic monument—and an ideal base for an Andean adventure. When guests arrive at the airport (Bariloche is two hours from Buenos Aires by plane), they are ushered into a special arrivals lounge to wait for their transportation to the property, which is set on a hilltop between crystalline Lake Nahuel Huapi and smaller Lake Moreno. The 162 standard rooms and suites in the original Bustillo wing are compact and comfortably furnished in B&B style; the 43 best suites are set in the four-year-old Moreno Wing, with private Jacuzzis, modern design, large balconies, and breathtaking vistas of Lake Moreno and snowcapped Mount Tronador. The area is a paradise for hikers and bikers in the cool summers (December to March), a snowy wonderland for skiers during winter, and a gastronomes' paradise year round.
You can arrange for a three-hour guided horseback tour around Lake Moreno.
Don't miss the hotel's happy hour, every day from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. The antler chandeliers and deerskin chairs will make you feel like you're roughing it in high style.
Arrive at Teniente Luis Candelaría International Airport (BRC) which is approximately 20 miles from the hotel. Anticipate about 35 minutes of travel time.Av. Ezequiel Bustillo Km. 25, Bariloche, Río Negro, Argentina
