The Vines Resort & Spa

Luxury boutique hotel The Vines Resort & Spa in Argentina, opening in January, has joined The Leading Hotels of the World, the first in the Mendoza region to be part of the luxury collection.

Set in the country’s wine region and offering 180-degree views of the Andes Mountains, the resort features 22 one- and two-bedroom villas ranging from 1,000 to 2,700 sq. ft. Guests receive a customized stay arranged by a “Gaucho,” who is a personal tour guide and concierge, and they can take part in activities like learning about the art of winemaking with the resort’s team and consulting winemaker, Santiago Achaval.

Surrounded by Mendoza’s 1,500 acres of vineyards, blending natural elements inspired by the Uco Valley, the resort offers a laid-back luxury feel. Villas feature wood and stone textures with natural light, modern kitchens, spa-inspired bathrooms, outdoor tubs and showers, and private terraces with gas fireplaces and plunge pools, which can also double as hot tubs in cooler months.

The Vines’ amenities are also as impressive as the views, with the full-service Spa offering “multi-sensory experiences” customized for each guest; the spa partnered with Argentinean perfume lab FUEGUIA 1833 to offer custom fragrances for treatments. Guests can also relax at the infinity pool with private cabanas; work out at the fitness center overlooking the vineyards; or take part in outdoor and experiential activities, from horseback riding and yoga to cooking and wine education.

The hotel is now accepting reservations for stays starting in January. Rates start at $560 for a 1-bedroom villa in low season and $800 in high season. For more information, visit vinesresortandspa.com.
