Featured Lodge

Los Cauquenes, Ushuaia, Argentina

Los Cauquenes Resort and Spa, Ushuaia, Tierra del Fuego, Argentina

A place where comfort, hospitality and luxury blend in harmony. A refreshing and stimulating rest overlooking the Beagle Channel after a strenuous day of adventures in Argentine Patagonia. Walking from the front door to your room you smell the fragrance of quietness, and enjoy superb views of dawn and sunsets over the ocean. Cleverly mixed, local foods dance in the restaurant menu, creating sofisticated dishes for demanding and hard-to-please palates. A great ambience for a friendly cocktail by the fireplace. If you can spare the time, a visit to the Spa is a choice you won't regret. Read more...
