Gorgeous, small property in northern Patagonia. We flew into Bariloches from Buenos Aires and drove for about 45-60 minutes to the hotel. The town of Villa La Angostura is small but has a few shops and restaurants. Las Balsas is secluded and quiet. The rooms are small and comfortable. Front desk, spa and food first class. The hotel is situated... More

A Little Bit of Heaven in Patagonia. Serene hidden vintage interior design to die for and perfect linen. Perfectly located. It invites to relax and enjoy life, so "relais &chateaux" The panorama pool in the patagonian style architected spa with its view on Nahuel Huapi framed by the Andes is priceless. What rounds it all up is the staff. So... More

This property is just beautiful. The accommodations comfortable. The staff incredibly friendly and accommodating. I do believe that out of a week in Bariloche, this place served three of our best meals and topped the Llao Llao gourmet resto. Also after staying at both places, I'm sure the next visit will be entirely in the more natural and quaint and... More

The setting for this hotel is outstanding. The rooms are nice and clean but slightly rustic .The amenities were not replaced after you used them so over our 3 nights there we had to reuse the shower cap and we ran out of tissue paper. The food was boring and we had the same menu throughout our stay. Its supposed... More

Las Balsas was a wonderful place to stay in Villa la Angostura--slightly difficult to find but just keep an eye out for signs when driving down the main road into town. We couldn't have asked for a better staff--they were willing to help you with anything you needed whether it be to come up with itineraries, book restaurant reservations, confirm... More

We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Argentina. Our last stop was 4 nights in Las Balsas in Villa la Angostura. We felt like we were guests in someone's very lovely & comfortable lake home. This hotel has only 10 or so rooms so very intimate setting. The indoor/outdoor pool was heated & was very welcome after... More

We love Las Balsas. This is my 3rd stay there and I always leave feeling I should have stayed an extra day. The service is super professional yet friendly / family like, which is difficult to achieve. The food is a superb mix of local dishes with a modern high end cuisine twist. The wine list is very fairly priced... More

Recommended by our travel agents. Rather hard to find but well worth it in the end. We hadn't booked but they gave us a lovely table outside beside the lake. The service was superb, top notch and the food absolutely excellent. Not surprised it is a Relais. Would definitely recommend.

One of the best hotel that I´ve stayed in my life. It is well located, the view to Nahuel Huapi lake and to the Andes is simply perfect. The employees of the hotel treat you like a king all the time, giving tips on what to do, how to do, what to eat, and they are always asking you what... More

My family and I are Relais & Chateau enthusiasts, and we try to eat and stay at their properties everywhere we go. In fact, we just spent five wonderful days at Las Balsas, in Villa La Angostura. The place is gorgeous, the service impeccable, the food delicious. What a magical place in the south of Argentina. Nothing compares to this.... More
