Contemporary Hotel


Short description

Discover Patagonia in contemporary luxury


Recommended for:
Lodges | Mountains | Natural world

A gem in the heart of Patagonia, Esplendor is perfectly matched to the spectacular surrounds that lie just outside its floor-to-ceiling windows.

Antler-adorned walls, distressed wood benches and stone fireplaces truly bring the outside in, while in bedrooms, contemporary furnishings and quebracho tables trimmed with sheepskin give a luxe touch. Suites go one up with distressed wood and concrete walls that combine with ultra-luxe furnishings to create a rustic and chic space, polished with sheepskin features and a circle two-person bath for soaks overlooking the splendours outside.

As the gateway to the spectacular Perito Moreno Glacier, it's this hotel’s location that steals the show, on the edge of the Southern Patagonian Ice Field. Explore the glacier with hikes and tours, spotting the likes of penguins, seals, whales, armadillos, guanacos and even puma along the way and coming back to the town’s Glaciarium to learn more about the region’s world-famous glaciers.

Come back to make use of the indoor heated pool, sauna and massage rooms before a sundowner by the cosy fireplaces and later, a meal in the contemporary Iglu restaurant. Enjoy traditional Argentinian meals with a modern flair paired with spectacular vistas of Lake Argentino – though if you’re here from June-September you'll have to venture out to one of El Calafate’s myriad eateries, from fine-dining steakhouses to traditional Argentinian ranches.
