Hands down, our honeymoon stay at Cavas Wine Lodge was the most wonderful hotel stay of our lives. Every single aspect of our trip was absolutely perfect. We booked the special programme package for three nights, and it was worth every penny. With the special programme, the hotel booked everything for us - from restaurant reservations to drivers to meals to white water rafting - everything was covered in the rate. Yes, it's a splurge, but we were more than satisfied with what we received.
Our friendly driver was waiting for us at the airport and assisted us with our attempts to track our lost luggage. Although we had planned to check in before heading to dinner at Azafran restaurant, we decided to travel to dinner straight from the airport given the fact that we had no clothes to change into. Our driver was so easy going with everything - he waited in town for us to finish dinner, and put no pressure on us for a departure time.
After dinner, we were greeted at the hotel with a smile, a glass of wine, and a lot of concern over our lost luggage. The hotel left us a sweet note and congratulatory bottle of wine for our honeymoon, along with some fruit. Our room was absolutely gorgeous. There was a large seating area with a flat screen tv and fireplace when we walked in, along with a massive bed overlooking the patio. The bed was incredibly comfortable. Next, there was a desk area and large closet area, followed by a massive bathroom with a bathtub, shower, and two sinks. The ground floor porch had a shower, two lounge chairs, a small table with two chairs, and a dip pool overlooking the vineyards. And the top floor... it was so enchanting! It had two bed-like chairs overlooking the vineyards with a table and outdoor fireplace.
The grounds are stunning. We had a good laugh every time we walked to our room - you literally have to walk through the vineyards, and my tall husband kept getting hit in the head with hanging grapes. What a unique and memorable experience! It is just amazing to look over the vineyards to the snow-capped Andes Mountains - such a beautiful landscape.
Given the loss of our bags, we had to change our plans for the next day given our lack of clothing. The hotel could not have been more accommodating. After a delicious breakfast, the hotel arranged for a driver to take us into town to find a few essentials. Thankfully, our bags finally arrived, so we went on our white water rafting trip in the afternoon (so much fun!), followed by a massage in the afternoon. After that, the hotel arranged for us to have a dinner on our upstairs balcony under the stars. Do not miss this event - I will never forget the delicious food and wonderful service that we received that night.
The next day, the hotel arranged a wine tasting tour for us. After two winery visits, we were a bit sleepy and headed back to the hotel for a rest before our delicious dinner at 1884 restaurant. We were floored when we received a bottle of wine and a card from the hotel at dinner thanking us for our stay. It's the little things that make such a big difference, which Cavas excels at. We decided to sleep under the stars that night, so the hotel set up sleeping bags and a fire for us on our balcony for our return.
We loved meeting all of the staff and learning about the hotel. I cannot begin to express how special our stay was - we cannot wait to return someday. Thanks for an incredible three days.
