We arrived at Apalta after rearranging our South America trip following a disappointing visit to the Atacama which we cut short.
On arrival at Apalta we knew that we had fallen on our feet - a fantastic lunch on the terrance, an afternoon visiting the cellar and some time to relax set the tone for the next three days.
The food is exceptional and the service is discrete but attentive.
In my experience boutique hotels can be great or disappointing - we have been disappointed when owners have been absent but this was like staying in a private house albeit in the owner's absence. We stayed in Madame's own cabana which was simply but luxuriously furnished. There was no sign of any lowering of standards in Madame's absence.
If only other boutique hotels were like this.
Three days later we were sad to leave but had recovered from the disappointment of our Atacama trip and returned happily to the UK
