House-of-Jasmines-Salta-Argentina

House of Jasmines

House of Jasmines is a glamorous estancia on the outskirts of Salta. Set at the base of the Andes, this stylish hotel provides guests with a relaxing experience amidst the tranquil surroundings. Interiors are tastefully decorated with elegant and bright furnishings, complementing the peaceful surroundings of the ranch. In the morning sun, step out onto the landscaped estate, relax on the terrace, by the poolside cabanas or embark on a horse-riding excursion in the countryside. Situated in Salta, the third-largest wine region of Argentina, a wine tasting in the evening is a must.

El Manantial del Silencio Hotel and Spa

El Manantial del Silencio Hotel and Spa

El Manantial del Silencio Hotel and Spa is a beautiful rural and minimalistic property located in the idyllic village of Purmamarca. The white monastic style building contrasts with the rugged surrounding landscape which includes the iconic “hill of seven colours”. The simple exterior belies the luxury that is found within. Colourful local rugs and wooden accents adorn each room and the spa is reminiscent of something found in a modern city, not a peaceful village.

Vines_Of_Mendoza

The Vines of Mendoza

The Vines of Mendoza is the ultimate retreat for wine lovers and is located at the base of the Andean Mountains. The hotel sits within a privately owned vineyard meaning guests have access to some of Argentina’s best wine – vine to table. The modern property has stunning views of the vineyards and mountains as well as luxury villas and modern facilities. The low-lying villas have been cleverly built to blend into the landscape yet stand out for the beauty of their design. Everything from the outdoor pools to the indoor social spaces ooze rustic luxury which really adds to the appeal of the property.

Explora_El_Chaltén

Explora El Chaltén

The Explora El Chaltén is the newest addition to the Explora family brand of hotels. With its prime location, this property is the perfect place to witness the incredible views of the Electric Valley and to get up close to the Marconi Glacier. For those who love nature and trekking, exploration routes around the property have been carefully designed by the outdoors team and can be enjoyed with the help of bilingual guides.

La-Bamba-de-Areco

Estancia La Bamba De Areco, Buenos Aires

This elegant estancia in Argentina has become a piece of Argentinian history in itself, continuing to embrace authentic gaucho culture. It is an exceptional place for adventure, and regularly hosts polo games as well as organising horse riding and mountain bike excursions upon request.

Palacio Duhau

Palacio Duhau

As one of the top luxury hotels in Buenos Aires, Palacio Duhau has been making waves since opening in 2006. Situated in the affluent neighbourhood of Recoleta, the property is the perfect spot for architecture enthusiasts and those looking to absorb some culture. The property consists of two buildings, one a neoclassical palace and the other a modern 17 floor tower. The buildings are joined by an underground walkway lined with original artworks. The style aspect of the property is partly why the hotel is so popular among locals and tourists alike. The hotel also offers the most extensive spa in the city, an underground pool and stunning terraced gardens.

What people are saying

“I’ve been a customer of OROKO for the last 12 months and have booked family holidays, ski trips and short breaks. The whole experience is brilliant; you explain the type of holiday that you are hoping to have, without specifying necessarily where and the team will present you a series of ideas and options, all costed out. It takes away all the stress of planning a trip. On top of this, you receive a full itinerary, and all activities can be sourced in advance. I’m a big fan.”
