With five sophisticated restaurants and bars (including El Cabaret, home to Rojo Tango, Argentina’s premier tango show), a beautiful adults-only vibe outdoor pool and a full-service spa and gym, this is a spot that provides a tranquil if eclectic oasis from the bustle of the city.
Four Seasons Buenos Aires

It’s a Four Seasons, so you can expect the classic experience including impeccable service, a buzzy bar, an excellent restaurant with a huge breakfast buffet, outdoor pool and luxurious spa and gym.

Palacio Duhau (aka The Park Hyatt)
Avenida Alvear 1661
+1 54 11 5171 1234
The Park Hyatt is grand and gorgeous. It’s a restored historical palace complemented by a modern tower addition that boasts some serious views. It has a similar 5-star experience to the Four Seasons except for the lack of an outdoor pool. Instead, the Park Hyatt offers a large indoor pool in their spa and elaborate, beautiful gardens where you can relax, order a drink and hang out. There are also a few restaurants on site, but our fave is Duhau Restaurante & Vinoteca for an afternoon on the terrace.
