The Best in Luxury for South America
The luxury options in South America have exploded in the past five years. If you call our Travel Consultants and ask for luxury and design options, they’ll be able to rattle off more names than I can here, but in the meantime, here are a few good ones to get you started:
The Panoramic Hotel
The name is not deceiving. The Panoramic Hotel rests on a hill overlook the convergence of the Iguazu and Parana Rivers, the natural border separations between Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay. With a view worth swooning over, the Panoramic Hotel also has 5-stars service to match and beautifully decorated rooms, all suites with a view of the rivers or falls.
Hotel das Cataratas
The only hotel inside of the Iguazu National Park, Hotel das Cataratas offers engaging activities to their guests including whitewater rafting, or helicopter rides over the falls. The adventures of the day pair well with the relaxing, classic Portuguese-colonial style of the hotel, accented by paintings from a Brazilian artist.
The W is located in the heart of one of Chile’s most stylish neighborhoods, surrounded by quaint cobblestone streets and tall skyscrapers. While the hotel itself is beautiful and lavish, it is the service at The W Santiago that is exceptional. The hotel offers a ‘Whatever/Whenever’ method of customer service that makes sure your every wish is not only granted, but exceeds your expectations.
Le Reve Hotel Boutique
The focused staff at Le Reve has only one mission, to make sure your stay is perfect. Beautiful French architecture sets the precedent for Le Reve’s sophisticated flair and its location, within Santiago’s historic Providencia district, within feet of cafes, restaurants, museums and theatres, makes this Parisian-inspired boutique a perfect option.
The new, opulent Orient Express hotel opened in 2012 has thought of everything. The new boutique option took over four years to fully restore, and during the process the hotel made sure to include the maximum amenities to ensure quality and comfort. With 55 suites, all enriched with oxygen and served by a personal butler, the level of service at the Palacio Nazarenas is astronomical.
The Sacred Valley, Peru
Tambo Del Inka Resort & Spa
This beautiful hotel is the only one in Urubamba with a private train station to Machu Picchu, letting you beat the crowds to the beautiful mountaintop citadel. The surrounding grounds are spruced up with lush gardens and a jade lagoon and the hotel has a luxurious spa that offers massages and therapeutic treatments with traditional Incan ingredients.
Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness
The Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness capitalizes on offering relaxing accommodations and treatments to restore your sanity during your busy days of touring. From anti-stress programs to acupuncture, yoga classes, and nutritional workshops, the Aranwa Sacred Valley Hotel & Wellness rejuvenates your senses in the beautiful landscape of Peru’s Sacred Valley.
Le Biblio Hotel
Le Biblio Hotel is just steps from the ocean offering its guests a reprise of fresh, ocean air. Located in Montevideo’s most affluent community, Le Biblio Hotel is no stranger to the cures of superior service. The Victorian styled façade opens into warm and naturally inspired interior that urges relaxation.
Jose Ignacio, Uruguay
A traditional Uruguayan ranch located near the ocean, the Estancia VIK is an elegant, Spanish colonial-style building portraying the best art from around Uruguay. Sitting on 4,000 acres, the Estancia VIK has plenty of room for you to relax, explore and enjoy the landscape. The service is wonderful, and the estancia experience offers guests a variety of excursions without having to leave the property.
