The DNA: Esplendor by Wyndham El Calafate is a stylish boutique hotel featuring lavish, yet uncluttered interiors. Flowing canvas drapes, 15-foot leather sofas, and tables of weathered quebracho hardwood section off the ground-floor public areas. Furniture and décor combine natural materials such as stone, native-sand plaster, and incense timber with resin, wood veneer, and colorful fiber. The hotel’s restaurant invites guests to enjoy Patagonia’s rich cuisine and admire the surrounding landscapes. Have fun in the hotel’s games room before trying signature cocktails in the hotel’s stylish Iglú Bar. The property features a spa, a heated pool and a sauna. The hotel can arrange excursions to the impressive Perito Moreno Glacier or boating trips on the surrounding lakes.
Suite-Me-Up: The chocolate-and-burgundy rooms encircle an atrium and are decorated in a simple Scandinavian style. Rooms come with entertainment systems and king-sized beds. Views of the turquoise Argentino Lake and the Andes can be enjoyed from the in-bedroom bath tub.
