Las Balsas Gourmet Hotel & Spa, a member of the elite Relais & Chateau Hotels, really is a treat! While it looks very much like it should have been a family home, it was, in fact designed always as a hotel. I guess this fact gives an idea as to what to expect…a home from home. Set overlooking a small bay on the shores of the Nahuel Huapi, it has everything you could ask for and more…excellent food, service, location, facilities…we could go on…and do!!

Situated in a wooded area to the east of the small village of Villa La Angostura, Las Balsas has the feel of a private house. Featuring stunning gardens and views out onto the Nahuel Huapi Lake, it is the perfect place to spend a few days, relaxing or exploring the surrounding woodlands and nature.

Constructed around 30 years ago this quaint, shutter board house is picture perfect in every way. Featuring private gardens on one side and a private beach and the lake on the other, you feel transported into a story tale of sorts!

The main entrance and the communal areas to Las Balsas are arguably the highlights to the property with the standard bedrooms being on the small side…although, should you opt for a suite then they are a really good size. On entering, you are greeted with a really comfortable main lounge area with central fire and luxurious seats, as well as a phenomenal view out across the lake. To the right of this area is the main dining room, and, outside, there is a small patio that is perfect for “al fresco” lunches and summer suppers.

As mentioned, the bedrooms are probably not the strong point of Las Balsas, but this is more than made up for with the facilities and communal areas. In addition to the main building, they have also built a small leisure house of sorts with a gym, Jacuzzi, spa, sauna and swimming pool. Being set away from the main building allows families to make as much noise as they like here and not disturb others.

On the whole this hotel is a real joy to stay in with good access to walking and a whole host of other activities. Anything can be arranged through their concierge service and with options such as wine tasting with a trained sommelier you are guaranteed a stay to remember.

Great service, exceptional food, stunning location, facilities galore
