Cavas Wine Lodge
Cavas Wine Lodge is the quintessential romantic retreat. Located on a secluded vineyard in the heart of Mendoza’s wine country, Cavas Wine Lodge is a peaceful sanctuary with 17 very private villas, which appear to have organically grown amid the 55-acre working vineyard. The boutique hotel is named after its 3,000-bottle wine cellar, where complimentary winetastings are hosted each evening by the in-house sommelier. During harvest, February through April, guests can participate in an array of exciting activities at the lodge.
 
The hotel’s dynamic husband-and-wife owners, Cecilia Diaz Chuit and Martin Rigal, personally attend to guests with a warmth that permeates the entire hotel experience. Designed for romantic getaways, each villa has a secluded sun deck with a panoramic view of the snowcapped Andes Mountains, plus a wood-burning fireplace and a private plunge pool. The hotel’s peaceful ambience extends to the tranquil spa and restaurant.

Our favorite rooms: You can’t go wrong with any villa at Cavas Wine Lodge, but the hotel’s new Grand Villa has an expansive rooftop terrace that seats 20 for dinner with a private chef. A personal tango show can be arranged, set against the stunning mountain and vineyard landscape.

Romance in Wine Country
Cavas Wine Lodge is the quintessential romantic retreat. Located on a secluded vineyard in the heart of Mendoza’s wine country, Cavas Wine Lodge is the region’s most exclusive boutique hotel. It is a peaceful sanctuary of 17 very private villas, which appear to have organically grown among the grapes in the five-acre vineyard. Each villa enjoys panoramic views of the Andes mountains with a rooftop sunset terrace that has a cozy fireplace. Sensory experiences abound in the spa, restaurant and wine tastings. Cavas Wine Lodge was a 2013 winner of Travel + Leisure's Best Hotels in the World.

Spa Day at Cavas Wine Lodge
Cavas Wine Lodge offers an indulgent seven-hour Spa Day experience. The day begins with a morning welcome tea or coffee before your first treatment—a 30-minute deep cleansing Malbec scrub that uses organic grape seeds and essential oils to revitalize the body’s epidermis. Following is a 60-minute Alfius full body massage, kneading your muscles into relaxation. Next is a leisurely lunch in Cavas’ dining room with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the mountains. The seasonal menu is paired with wines from the hotel’s expansive wine cellar. Then it’s back to the spa you go for a 30-minute Facial Treatment, which feels like a blissful facial massage rather than a cleansing treatment. The Spa Day culminates with a dip in the hot tub or sauna session followed by a bottle of sparkling wine to watch the sun melt behind the Andes from the spa’s comfortable pool deck. It’s a little slice of heaven on earth. Costaflores S/N, Cobos, Luján de Cuyo, Mendoza; +54 114 312 8067

Bonarda Wine Bath
The signature spa treatment at Cavas Wine Lodge is an oenophile’s dream. The Bonarda Soaking Bath has its own treatment room with two deep soaking tubs surrounded by glowing candles and lanterns. For 45-minutes you’ll soak in a steaming bath of red wine extracts and organic essential oils designed to stimulate the body’s circulatory system. It’s the ultimate wine country spa experience and just the kind of tidbit that makes for a great postcard home. Costaflores S/N, Alto Agrelo, Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza; +54 261 410 6927
