Spoil yourself and upgrade to a suite room, a sprawling space of distressed wood and concrete walls mixed with ultra-luxe furnishings that creates a rustic, open plan and modern space, perfected with sheepskin and a deep two-person bath alongside stunning lake vistas.
Make use of the indoor heated pool, sauna and massage rooms before watching mountain-framed lakes in frozen splendour as you curl up by stone fireplaces with a pre-dinner drink before indulging in the onsite Iglu restaurant. Enjoy spectacular vistas of Lake Argentino paired with stunning sunsets and signature cocktails. If you're visiting from June-September, though, you'll have to venture out to El Calafate’s myriad offerings – not necessarily a bad thing with chic restaurants around every corner, from fine-dining steakhouses to traditional Argentinian ranches.
Much like the rest of Patagonia, it's the location that steals the show – a permanent perch looking over the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field – the gateway to the aforementioned Perito Moreno Glacier, a constantly-shifting icy landscape. It's best explored with hikes and tours, spotting the likes of penguins, seals, whales, armadillos, guanacos and even puma along the way. Back at base, the town centre plays host to the Glaciarium where you can learn more about the region’s world-famous glaciers.
