Top 5 Luxury Honeymoon Destinations in Argentina

DESTINATIONS, LUXURY TRAVEL, SOUTH AMERICA

Every new couple’s dream is to start their married life with the golden memories of an unforgettable honeymoon. The beautiful landscapes and prestigious hotels of Argentina make this the perfect setting for a blissful beginning. Buenos Aires offers you and your loved one only the best, bringing you closer to a diverse and fascinating landscape, and of course, to each other.

Buenos Aires, the Paris of Latin America

Care to become intimate with the most romantic city in Latin America? Buenos Aires is the place to be to cultivate those treasured moments with your partner. The two of you can enjoy wandering the San Telmo market and trying different drinks on the Plaza Dorrego Bar Terrace or at La Poesia Café. There are pleasant walks along the river in Puerto Madero as well as fun photo options at the Woman Bridge. A popular spot is the Palermo Park, where couples can find themselves among the roses and the swans. The great Algodon Mansion Hotels open its doors in the city centre while the original Faena hotel displays original designs from the artist Philip Stark. For a taste of stereotypical Gaucho’s life, the estancia Bamba de Areco is located right outsite of Buenos Aires.

Fall in Love at the Iguazu Falls

The Iguazu Falls offer a gorgeous view at its base. San Martin Island taunts honeymooners to discover this little Eden with desert beaches, luxurious vegetation, and beautiful watch points. When the moon is full, the park is open to have a romantic dinner at one of the most outstanding panoramas in the world. Visitors gather just to listen to the sound of the water and to try pacu, a delicious regional fish. There are even hotels located inside of the park for those who wish to linger at this natural beauty. For those seeking a compromise between nature and luxury, there is the estancia Santa Cecilia or the Lodge Loi Suites, popular for being surrounded in vegetation, its natural wood designs, swimming pools and beautiful view over the jungle.

Taste wines of Mendoza’s bodegas

Any trip to Argentina would be amiss without tasting the best wines in the country.  Visit the many Bodegas (vineyards) of the region and sip on their Malbec. From the bodega Catena Zapatam known for its astonishing architectural pyramid, to the bodega Tapiz, the two of you can take part in the most famous degustation of wine served in oak casks from France. Be free to observe the beautiful landscapes and explore the many small romantic towns in the region. Stay for a night in the cozy Casa Margot, an estancia with only two rooms in the Andes Mountains. If you venture to San Lujan de Cuyo, the hotel Entre Cielos is worth the trip with its lofts built on stilts. Finally, try Torronté, the regional white wine that can only be found in Cafayate.

Delight in the Lakes of Patagonia

The road of the Seven Lakes is called the Swiss of Patagonia, known for being a tranquil escape. Bariloche is a ski station famous for its homemade beer and chocolate. Take time here to just relax and to wander in the street with small cute chalets. The hotel Lahuen Co mixes nature and relaxation in the center of the National Park. There, you can enjoy the open space of the Seven Lakes and witness the turquoise water of the Espejo Lake as well as breathtaking sunsets at dusk. Las Balsas Relais Chateaux is an excellent last stop, a quiet but marvellous castle for the two of you to meander about.

Ushuaia, the end of the world

Nothing is more romantic than staying at the end of the world with the love of your life. Ushuaia is known as the most southern city in the world. Walk in the Tierra del Fuego National Park and experience peaceful silence unbroken by the modern world. Smell the Antarctic fragrance and observe truly impressive landscapes. The Hotel Los Cauquenes in the Beagle Canal has a panoramic view on the Ushuaia bay. There are also spas for relaxation or drinking tea in front of an unforgettable atmosphere. The Arakur resort offers an in-out swimming pool where you and your loved one can take a bath at the end of the world.

    The wine country in Argentina looks like an incredibly romantic and unique experience! And I could easily spend time at Hotel Los Cauquenes!

      The mountain views are spectacular from the pool area. I would be happy just staying by the pool all day too.

    Argentina is one of my favourite countries. Those luxe hotels look fantastic. I’ll have to book into Faena next time I’m in Buenos Aires. The tango show at the hotel is wonderful though. Hotel Los Cauquenes in Ushuaia has a lovely view and a fabulous spa.

      I’ve been telling my husband for months now that I want us to take tango lessons so that next time we go I’m prepared.

    Love Argentina but have only been to the Iguazu area. I definitely plan on going back and although it won’t be for a honeymoon, this list will come in handy. Love the idea of staying at Entre Cielos.

      The view from the room in Entre Cielos is spectacular, plus you have the added advantage of trying some of the wines that are grown nearby.

    THIS IS PERFECT! We are now travelling through Argentina and what luck to stumble on this gem! We are returning in March for the harvest festival in Mendoza and April for Patagonia. Have pinned to our board for later reference.

    In childhood I used to watch several movies and tv shows filmed in Argentina. I was always thinking of the day, when I can reach there myself. This post has made this desire stronger! Thank you for sharing your tips and suggestions, Carmen

      You are welcome Natalia! There have been so many great films shot in Argentina. The landscape and scenery are an ideal backdrop for the movies. Hopefully, you get the chance to go one day soon.

    Love these Carmen! I would add Puesto Viejo Estancia too – it’s a fantastic polo club an hour out of Buenos Aires – we recently spent two nights here and it was the most stunning and romantic place. Fabulous food, romantic rides on the horses – the whole experience was super special 🙂

      You don’t have to be a romantic to visit any of these places. I like staying in places out of the ordinary, where you can enjoy the beauty of the country and stay away from the crowds.

      It’s not just for honeymoons, but it has become very popular in the last few years for couples looking to travel somewhere different.
