Sleep Among The Wine Ranks At Entre Cielos Mendoza
Maybe we should have said above the wine ranks, but you catch our drift. We love us some unusual hotels, and while overall the Entre Cielos Hotel in wine-centric Mendoza, Argentina, perhaps doesn’t necessarily fit in the category, its “Limited Edition” room is definitely something out of the ordinary.
Built on stilts above the hotel’s vineyard, the tube-shaped hotel room has a queen bed tucked in the corner of the open-plan living space, with skylights for stargazing at night. There is a full bathroom inside (you wouldn’t want to be traipsing back to the main hotel in the middle of the night after all) and the terrace has an outdoor bathtub so that you can soak while soaking up the views of the Andes Mountains, which look pretty spectacular in the distance.
We’re not sure if it would be frowned upon if you helped yourself to a grape right off the vines outside, but regardless there is plenty of opportunity to indulge in those and the alcoholic beverage that is made from them. Aside from the restaurants (both a fine dining option and a more informal option for an Asado, an Argentine barbeque), there is a spa & hammam with a number of grape-based treatments.
Being a Limited Edition, there is only one room like this at the hotel. The other 15 are categorised by the ages of wine: from Young through Reserva to Grand Cru. The Limited Edition room starts from $430 a night; an entry-level Young Room starts at $280.
