WHERE OUR DIRECTOR OF MARKETING SHOPS FOR UNIQUE GIFTS

– Gabriel Oliveri, Director of Marketing

“A great place to find handmade Argentine crafts is FACON. Traditional mattes, modern ponchos, contemporary items from the north, and photographs from the south – FACON enhances and exhibits the beauty of our culture in a very harmonious and non-pretentious way. Its owner, Martín Bustamante, is a passionate host. While you shop for Argentine gems, he’s likely to share a story about his travels or the landscapes he's visited in order to procure every piece you see in his store. It’s a house full of anecdotes.”

OUR Concierge Supervisor’S FAVOURITE HISTORICAL SPOT

– Paula Pantanali, Concierge Supervisor

“The Colón Theater is one of Buenos Aires’ greatest treasures. Renowned for its acoustics, architecture and over a century of history, it’s a must-visit destination I always recommend to our guests. It holds a special place in my heart, as each visit evokes the same enchantment as the first time. Join one of the guided tours to appreciate its intricate details and be sure to seek out the hidden bar tucked away in the old carriage passage. Here, amid the charming ambiance and the melodious tunes of a string trio, enjoy a tea service until sunset.”

AN ARTISTIC OUTLET FROM OUR PUBLIC RELATIONS MANAGER

– Delfina Daponte, Public Relations Manager

“The Latin American Art Museum (MALBA) is one of the most prominent in the city. It houses the art collection of the Costantini Foundation, with approximately 400 works, including paintings, sculptures, prints, photographs and objects by major 20th-century Latin American artists. MALBA is a dynamic and participatory cultural space where various temporary exhibitions are presented – often in collaboration with other museums around the world, international collections and related foundations – as well as showcases of contemporary Argentine and Latin American art. Additionally, it has a significant film program and a film archive that grows monthly through the acquisition and restoration of essential films in cinema history. The museum also has a literature area that organizes meetings with writers, courses, seminars, literary talks and book presentations.”

WHERE OUR SPA DIRECTOR GOES TO UNWIND

– Rodrigo Romero, Spa Director

“Palermo Lakes Park is my favourite park in Buenos Aires – it’s one of the most delightful places to spend any time of the day. I love to go on Sunday mornings during the summer for a run around the lake. Breathing the pure air and soaking in the sun really boosts your mood.”
