Located in the beautiful Mendoza region of Argentina, Entre Cielos – Luxury Wine Hotel & Spa lies surrounded by lush vineyards in the foothills of the Andes.
Set in a modern building with tall floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the rooms with light, Entre Cielos offers incredible views of the Andes and, of course, Mendoza’s world-famous wineries. (Click on photo to enlarge and see slideshow).
This 16-room boutique hotel’s modern design (by A4 Estudio) breathes sultry elegance while expressing its love for the regional wine culture, blending harmoniously with the glorious landscape of western Argentina.
Winner of the “2012 best new boutique hotel in the world” award, Entre Cielos is defined, in its own words, by four elements: “the Hotel for luxury lifestyle, the Hamam & Spa for unique relaxation, the restaurants for gourmet sensations, and the wine for connecting with the Earth of Mendoza” (ask about their exclusive wine brand from their own vineyards).
This establishment, member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World, has the first traditional hamam + spa in Latin America – a wellness circuit of six stages with steam bath, exfoliation rooms, heated pool and the hot stone, and different massage rooms (wine therapy is a must).
For the ultimate “nature experience”, choose to stay in the vineyard loft that resembles a futuristic space pod sitting high above the vineyard with bath on the terrace and roof window from which to star gaze.
For gourmet sensations, the exceptional fine-dining restaurant, Katharina, is a fusion of Mediterranean simplicity and local fresh produce with regional specialties, whereas the Beef Club & Wine House (currently closed for renovations) serves fine steaks and great wines – two products that are culinary staples of Argentina. Please note that this restaurant will reopen in December under a new name, Mas Brasas, and will be managed by one of Mendoza’s top chefs, Matias Podesta.
Since the land surrounding the hotel produces the world’s finest Malbec wines, make sure to take a tour of the Entre Cielos vineyards and savour some of the exquisite regional wines.
In the land of sunshine and fine wine, Entre Cielos, recently awarded “best boutique hotel” in South America and winner in the sensuous spa category at the Boutique Hotel Awards in London, provides a unique combination of experiences that will be remembered long after you head back home.
