Got to talking about hotels this morning, via a roundabout conversation about tree houses (as I have mentioned previously, I would like to stay in a tree house someday). Which made me think, sure, we could stay in just any old place in Argentina… but why not stay somewhere completely weird? (Note: most of these are not on our itinerary. It’s just a nice peg for a story, OK?)
The Don Enrique Lodge isn’t exactly a tree house, but I will never turn up my nose at a cabin in the jungle with a hammock. Or anywhere with a hammock, really.
The Entre Cielos Hotel also isn’t exactly a tree house, but it does sit above some beautiful Mendoza vineyards. Plus, there’s a hammam, and we all know how I love a hammam, even a culturally inappropriate one.
This one isn’t open yet, but someday, you’ll be able to sleep in a floating casino hotel in Iguazu. They’re calling it the “Mini Las Vegas” project. That sounds completely in keeping with the natural beauty of the environment.
