A Spa at the End of the World


los cauquenes spa
Spa at Los Cauquenes in Tierra del Fuego, Argentina.

In the October 2014 issue, we included a feature on Latin American spas. Latin America editor Carla Hunt zigzagged across Latin America and covered spas in Costa Rica, Peru, Nicaragua, Chile and Argentina. Here, we give you yet one more option—a spa at the end of the world! 

Fly south from Argentina to Ushuaia, virtually the southernmost city in the Western Hemisphere, then head out of town to the Los Cauquenes Resort, an exclusive place whose sprawling wood and stone lodge sits directly on the shores of Beagle Channel in Tierra del Fuego. The resort has 54 rooms and suites, and its (southernmost) five-star spa, along with sauna, jacuzzi, indoor-outdoor pool and terraces, comes with glass windbreaks and stunning views of the Andes mountain range. In this exceptionally beautiful setting, skilled professionals are in charge at the spa, administering such special treatments as chocolate therapies, yerba mate scrubs and Andean peat masks. The resort is a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the WorldRoom rates from $280. For more information, call (877) 234-7033 or visit loscauquenes.com.
