Faena Buenos Aires (Park View)

Faena Buenos Aires (Park View)

*****

A ruby-red riverfront palace, the Philippe Starck-designed Faena Hotel occupies a converted granary with soaring ceilings and prime city views. Inside, the hotel is an art-inspired homage to Argentina, with one of the world’s best Malbec collections, a 1920s-inspired cabaret and, of course, tango lessons from local experts. Prep for a long night of dancing with a soak in steaming spa tubs and a dinner of steaks that set a new Argentinean standard.

Highlights:

  • Arty Philippe Stark-designed granary

  • The hotel is packed with spaces to explore

  • A best-in-class breakfast spread

Also need to know:

Pets of up to 11 pounds are welcome. In advance of your arrival, the hotel will set up the room with a special bed, food menu and toy for the dog. The hotel has a dog-walking service, a pet menu and a choice of grooming treatments. The spa at Faena alone is worth the journey for its lengthy menu of botanical facials, energy-aligning chakras and deep-tissue massages. Get over jetlag in the candlelit marble hammam, warmed with eucalyptus-scented steam. The hotel also offers an array of private baths, including a detoxifying sea-breeze bath and a couples’ bath in a two-person tub, followed by a massage.

Packing tips:

Tango shoes: the hotel offers individual lessons to give you moves for the Buenos Aires dance floors. Stylish swimwear is imperative for afternoons by the pool; if you forget, the hotel has a carefully curated boutique stocked with kaftans, bikinis, jewellery and other fashionable finds.

Dress code:

Glamour and glitz to make Eva Perón proud.
