Arakur Resort and Spa, Ushuaia

Architecturally elegant and impressive as it is, the Hotel Arakur is completely dwarfed by the vast lake, rolling plains and monumental mountains which surround it.

In fact it is difficult to imagine any man-made structure dominating such a landscape. The Arakur is perched prominently on a craggy hillside, but behind it, puncturing the sky, are the jagged, snow-capped peaks of a mighty range of mountains. And before it a sea of tranquil blue water stretches away to a horizon shaped by a parade of mountain tops. This is nature at its most awe-inspiring.

That said, Arakur is impressive in its own right. A stunning infinity edge pool overlooks the huge lake. The ultra-modern rooms and suites have their own grand views. The outdoor hot tubs and fitness studio make the most of the spectacular panoramas. In short, there are all the modern amenities you need on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Argentina.
