Nestling among 55 acres of vines, Cavas Wine Lodge is a stylish, boutique hotel in the foothills of the Andes, around 30 minutes' drive from the lovely city of Mendoza. The restaurant and drawing room, with its grand piano and fireplace, are located within the main Spanish colonial-style house, adjoining the Moorish-inspired spa and gorgeous pool. The individual, adobe guest villas are dotted throughout the vineyard and are beautifully conceived, both for their design and awe-inspiring views. Enjoy sunrise over the Andes from your private roof terrace or a revitalizing dip in your plunge pool. There are over 25 top wineries located around Cavas Wine Lodge, and the Mendoza region is mainly known for its excellent Malbec, so this is the perfect excuse for a guided or independent wine safari.
Other nearby activities include zip lining, rafting, cycling, walking and riding. After an active day, retreat to the calm of the spa where you will find therapies involving wine and grape seed extract. Try the 'Full Wine Therapy' including a crushed Malbec scrub, therapeutic massage, Torrontes wine wrap and red grape enriched bath.
Having worked up a good appetite, the cuisine served at Cavas has a strong emphasis on seasonal and organic ingredients, with every course elegantly paired by the sommelier with a wine from the extensive cellar. The softly fruity 'Cecilia's Becquignol Rosé', made from the vineyard's grapes, makes a perfect accompaniment to grilled Chilean squid.
