Founded by the owners of the famed Kau-Tapen fishing lodge and modeled after its famous predecessor, the Pirá Lodge is located in the Corrientes province and is the first luxury fishing lodge focusing on the freshwater dorado.

The rurual retreat 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 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 2008 property 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.

Located in the Ongamira Valley in the province of Córdoba, the Dos Lunas Horse Riding Lodge is a boutique hotel housed inside a century=old farmhouse.
