Romantic forest refuge in an untouched Patagonian national park, with seven romantic rooms and river views

The Look

Deep in the heart of Patagonia’s Lanin National Park, Rio Hermoso Hotel de Montaña sits in a storybook-worthy forest clearing beside a riverbank. From the pine-clad façade and native stone walls to the enormous picture windows and oversize white furnishings, the design complements and showcases the impossibly pretty setting.

Bed and Bath

All seven guestrooms echo the minimalist, nature-inspired public spaces, with native woods from floor to ceiling, earth tones on the walls and pops of citrus in the decorative blankets and pillows. Enormous beds are dressed in soft, bright white sheets — large enough to sleep like a starfish or cozy up with your bedmate. The three upstairs rooms have the best views of the roaring river. Bathrooms are simply done up with pale stone tiles, modern fixtures and roomy tubs that have over-bath showerheads.


Meals are served in the light-flooded living room overlooking the river, with sweet pastries and a choice of eggs for breakfast, and only local and seasonal fare on offer at lunch and dinner. Staff can organize a traditional Argentinian barbecue complete with gourmet grilled meats and local boutique wines with advance notice, and don’t miss the special afternoon tea served on the white chaise longues beside the river. Patagonia’s great outdoors is the real reason for staying here, and, depending on the season, the property will organize fly-fishing excursions, birdwatching expeditions and hiking in the national park.

great for the price
Reviewed 2 years ago

We stayed in the cottage #1 that has 2 bedrooms in a middle level and a big bedroom in the 3rd level. Maybe it is a place that should be for 9, but we were very comfortable. the breakfast was very good included in the price. Nothing fancy but great to start the day. My only complain is that it has only one parking space, for 9 people!!! come on you know that we are traveling with 2 vehicles. A place that can have 9 people sleeping should have at least 2 parking spots

No cumplen con su palabra

Reservé una cabaña y al llegar me informan que la alquilaron a otras personas, que "me mandan" a un departamento en el centro o que tengo que alquilar otra de mayor valor. No cumplieron con lo pactado, cuando incluso habíamos dejado una seña mayor al 50% del valor total. Ellos cometen el error y lo tenemos que pagar nosotros. No volvemos más.

excelente lugar

Boa opção - simples com bom preço

Existem muitas opções de "chalés" em San Martin. Chegamos a essa por indicação da família. Passamos 4 dias lá e fomos bem atendidos. O café da manhã é na cabana, com pães caseiros, alguns doces acompanhado de geleias, manteigas e requeijão. Para beber é usado instantâneo (com sachês fornecidos por eles). Coisa simples mas bem feita. A estrutura é variada em tamanhos. Ficamos em uma que possui dois quartos e mais um outro na parte de cima - sempre que alguém andava no quarto de cima ouvíamos tudo... Um banheiro bom e outro mais ou menos.
Fica bem localizada, perto do lago e a uma caminhada curta do "centro comercial" de San Martin.
Voltaríamos certamente.
