When Do You Want To Go?

A Unique Hotel with a Distinct Identity and Great Value

Esplendor El Calafate is a unique hotel in Argentina with a distinct identity. The design of the hotel has a very contemporary focus fusing together a pallette of natural materials such as incense wood, plasters made with Patagonian sands, stones and fabrics with modern materials such as resin, polyester, coloured fiber and refurbished wood veneers. This mix makes for a very cool and chic look, but with features like open fires, wool throws and fabrics the overall look is warm and very inviting. 

When you enter Esplendor El Calafate you are greeted by a dramatic high ceiling reception space which leads through to a modern and comfortable bar and restaurant offering great views over the surrounding landscape. The restaurant serves modern international cuisine with a Patagonian flare as well as a comprehensive buffet breakfast every morning.

An area that is new to the hotel is the chic Spa. The main feature has to be the warm hydro pool with its bubbles and water jets designed to relax and massage muscles. The area comes complete with comfortable loungers for relaxing, a small gym area and a massage room with a variety of treatments available. It is the perfect place to unwind after a day viewing the glaicer.

Rooms at Esplendor El Calafate continue the hotels theme with modern spaces warmed by the use of natural materials. As a result even the lead in room type feels quite different. Each room has a good view over the surrounding area and some really nice, thoughtful touches.

The location of Esplendor El Calafate makes it is around a 10 minute walk to the main area of restaurants and shops. However the walk back is uphill!

Overall we really like this hotel and think it offers something a bit different to your ususal hotel options. The decor is not for everyone but if you are a fan of style at a good price, this is a great option to consider for your holiday to Argentina.
