Close to Buenos Aires, in the heart of the Argentine pampas, one of the oldest estancias in Argentina has been recently renovated with great care as a boutique hotel.
The Estancia La Bamba de Areco now successfully combines luxurious comfort and colonial elegance. Guests will feel like they have been welcomed into a private home, a property steeped in history and tradition, making this hotel a special and timeless place for relaxation. Exquisite cuisine, world class service, equestrian sports and gaucho traditions all add to the unique magic of La Bamba. The estancia is ideally located just a few hours’ drive from Buenos Aires, perfect for travellers who have time limitations but who wish to enjoy the estancia experience. La Bamba de Areco also serves as the base for the international polo team that bears its name.
The property includes two polo fields and guests can watch games during the season, with practice sessions and matches taking place almost daily. Although it is not intended to be a polo school, arrangements can be made on request for guests who are experienced polo players. Other excursions on horseback, by carriage, or mountain bike, Argentinian bowls game, hot stone massages, the large swimming pool and the numerous relaxation areas offer the traveller an unforgettable stay. An active part of Argentine and particularly gaucho heritage, the estancia is proud to offer authentic gaucho traditions such as mate tasting and the Argentine barbeque; Asado.
In the eleven rooms and suites at La Bamba, dark wooden floors, antique colonial furniture, art works, local textiles and modern art combine to create understated elegance and harmonious luxury. Each room is romantically named after a famous polo horse. All non-smoking and air-conditioned, the rooms look out onto the park, shaded patios, the imposing pampa or the polo fields. The rooms boasting king-sized beds, fine Egyptian linen, safes for valuables and other amenities are perfect for the lucky few that get to stay in this charming and exclusive property.
