Hotel Esplendor

Near the southernmost tip of South America, Argentine Patagonia is a wild and beautiful land of lofty mountains, deep-water lakes, and sprawling glaciers. It begs to be explored - but right now, you're happy to contemplate turquoise Argentino Lake from the in-bedroom bath of your suite at Esplendor El Calafate. Home to 57 rooms and suites, this smartly modern boutique hotel pays homage to its remote setting at the bottom of the world. The furniture and décor combine natural materials such as stone, native-sand plaster, and incense timber with resin, wood veneer, and colorful fiber. All suites at Esplendor El Calafate feature entertainment systems and king-sized beds - touches not lost on weary adventurers returning from a day at nearby Perito Moreno Glacier. Save some energy for Iglú Bar & Restaurant, which serves local cuisine and signature cocktails. Like the rest of the hotel, it's a delightfully refined window on the unspoiled Patagonian landscape.
