One of the area’s oldest and best-known rural retreats, San Ceferino Hotel de Campo & Spa (
doubles from $279, all-inclusive), recently added 22 country-chic suites with queen-size beds, traditional Pampas art, oversize whirlpool tubs, and views of the two-acre laguna from their spacious balconies.
If you’re a polo fan, check into the 32-room Resort de Campo & Polo (
doubles from $180) and catch a match; though the rooms aren’t much to look at, the property’s new 3,000-square-foot spa (wet and dry saunas, ozone hydromassages, and a massage shower) is a standout.
The year-old Finca María Cristina (
doubles from $225) is Argentina’s first estancia to open as a real boutique hotel—20 rooms with private decks, blond-wood floors, earth-toned pillows and throws, and a 20-minute helicopter service to and from Buenos Aires.
