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.

Have you ever been standing in the middle of a sun-drenched field or garden and just wished you could plop a bed right there in the middle of it all and take a nap? Well, the Hotel El Aguamiel took that yearning to a higher level and plopped a 6-room hotel in the middle of a vineyard, in Argentina's wine country just outside of Mendoza.

Yesterday we toured you around the restaurant, pool and grounds, but today we'll actually go inside our own room on the property, # 6.

All Around El Aguamiel, a 6-Room Hotel in Argentina's Wine Country

June 26, 2012 at 12:07 PM | by | ()

We had our DSLR camera stolen in Argentina, while attempting to bike the wine routes outside of Mendoza. It was a harrowing experience we cringe to remember, but luckily we were staying at the rural 6-room Hotel El Aguamiel at the time and returning from being interrogated by 15 bulletproof vest-wearing officers to our little slice of vineyard heaven far outweighs all the negative. Yes, we can't wait to go back.

El Aguamiel is a property we chanced upon, while browsing the Argentina offerings on flash hotel sale site Jetsetter.com. Yes, we were heading in the direction of Mendoza and yes, we could totally take a couple days to chill out surrounded by the grapes that make the Malbecs we ordered from brunch 'til midnight.

At $169 per night with free WiFi and breakfast, it was a no-brainer. Sadly the hotel is no longer listed on Jetsetter, but here's hoping it returns soon.

Where to Stay in Mendoza

All this week, Eric Rosen will be bringing us his hotel recommendations for an interesting trip down in South America. He explains it all in our latest hotel guide--Budget Boutique Hotels of the 33rd Parallel South.

Mendoza is probably my favorite destination in Argentina. Sure, there are the natural splendors of the glaciers in the south and Iguazu Falls in the north. Buenos Aires definitely beckons with her joie de vivre, impromptu tango street demonstrations, and what might just be the best clubbing scene in the world.

But Mendoza--sprawling, dusty Mendoza--nestled in the eastern foothills of the towering Andes, is still my favorite. Why? Because you can drink some of the best wines in the world for very little money, and then you can work off your hangover with a day of hiking, horseback riding, and white water rafting in the nearby countryside.
