Hosteria Las Balsas is a small luxury boutique hotel on the shores of Lake Nahuel Huapi in Argentina's Lake District. Located to the north of Bariloche, this Relais & Chateaux property offers the finest cuisine and accommodation in the area.
The lakeside setting of Las Balsas is surrounded by dramatic mountains and lush forests, while pristine glacial lakes and the majestic peaks of the snow-capped Andes dominate the landscape here, serving as a perfect natural playground for adventurous travellers.
Las Balsas is a small hotel with just four cosy rooms and six suites, all decorated with refined style and elegance, and with views over the shimmering Nahuel Huapi Lake or to the mountains. The hotel itself also has several cosy candlelit lounge spaces with plush furniture, and a small library and bar complete the space.
There is an onsite spa with a gym, indoor/outdoor pool and Jacuzzi, perfect for relaxing in the tranquil surroundings after a day out in the park. Outdoors, you can expect direct lake access including a small sand beach, dock and boathouse which can accommodate dramatic arrivals and departures by yacht.
Dining is exceptional here, with incredible attention to detail and a superb sommelier to help complement your dishes with the perfect wine from the cellar, from Argentina or elsewhere. Activities revolve around the lake, with sailing, swimming, kayaking and fishing to name a few on offer, with trekking and horseback riding in the area as well.
