Las BalsasLake District, Argentina
We loved this stylish Relais & Chateaux property, with 13 wooden floored rooms, (3 suites and 10 standard rooms,) located on the tranquil northern shore of the Nahuel Huapi Lake close to La Angostura and surrounded by the vast Natural Park.
The cuisine and wine here are outstanding; the restaurant serves up Patagonian and International dishes, the wine cellar has over 100 different labels, the bar has a wide-ranging collection of single malt whiskies. The spa has fantastic views of the lake and surrounding hills and includes a heated in/out swimming pool, Jacuzzi and fitness area.
In the Spring and Summer seasons this is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts with trekking, sailing, canoeing, kayaking, horse-riding, biking, fly-fishing and bird-watching all possible around the Nahuel Huapi National Park and Lake. In the Winter season this is a great destination for winter sports lovers, with the Cerro Bayo boutique ski centre located 9km from the property. Snow trekking and Nordic skiing is also possible in the park.
This place exudes quality and is a wonderful place to relax and not go too heavy on the activities. It feels like staying in your very own Palace by the lake. In our opinion the best way to arrive to the hotel is by boat, we can even arrange for you to be met by a musician on the pier!
