This urban spa and casino hotel makes an ideal base for ski holidays and wine country touring.
An elegant, 19th-century, Spanish colonial façade welcomes guests at this luxurious property overlooking the lively Plaza de la Independencia. Although the city of Mendoza is known for its nearby vineyards and Andes ski resorts (just 90 minutes away), this hotel gives visitors good reason to stay in town. Inspired by the area's Maipú, Luján de Cuyo and Uco Valley wine regions, The Kaua Club & Spa features antioxidant treatments using products that incorporate ingredients from local grapes.
Guest rooms and suites are tastefully styled with modern décor and local art, and amenities include flat-screen TVs, cozy duvets, walk-in showers and large bathtubs. Among the house dining venues, Grill Q - Parrilla Argentina serves traditional Argentine meats in a setting clad in warm wood with a view of the garden and pool. When not sipping local vintages, dining on sirloin empanadas or unwinding with a signature wine facial, guests can head for the tri-level Regency Casino, with a variety of table games that include punto y banca, a local variation of Baccarat. Meeting and event venues include conference rooms, banquet rooms, boardrooms, a ballroom and outdoor patios.
