Las Hayas Resort Hotel, Ushuaia
Tel: 54 2901 430710
Concierge.com's insider take:
Set on beech-carpeted slopes two miles above Ushuaia, Las Hayas affords sweeping views of the city, the Beagle Channel, and the mysterious peaks of Chile's Isla Navarino beyond. The building's layout is designed to squeeze maximum mileage from the imposing location: A comfortable lounge stretches the length of the building; the bar, fireside den, and formal restaurant (specializing in local delicacies such as black hake and king crab) all share the same view. Within, wallpaper and upholstery can be startlingly florid, but the 93 rooms are light-filled and spacious, service is impeccable, and the well-equipped health club boasts one of Ushuaia's few decent swimming pools as well as a sauna, hot tubs, and squash court.
