These slick LGBTQ+ welcoming hotels await in Argentina.

Grand Palermo Soho, Buenos Aires
Kick it off at this swank boutique property
Located in the barrio of Palermo, which happens to be the polo capital of the world, this hotel is steps to brilliant food, nightlife and shopping. If you’re a steak fan – and Argentina knows steak – we stay literally next door to Don Julio, one of the world’s 50 best restaurants. The rooms are modern and understated. The service is all-encompassing. Then there’s breakfast: sensational, delicious, and bountiful. Finally, the rooftop splash pool is perfect for washing away the jet lag upon arrival. Between our tango lessons and food tours, we think you’ll find it’s a prime place to retreat.

Design Suites Salta Hotel, Salta
A magical mix of classic and modern
Founded as an outpost between Buenos Aires and Lima (Peru), Salta has grown into the capital of a province with the same name. The hotel marries an opulent Art Nouveau building with a modern tower. Bright artwork and vintage photographs give you a sense of place.
Manantial del Silence, Purmamarca
Surround yourself with rainbow-coloured mountains
Surrounded by the dramatic Cerro de los Siete Colores, or The Hill of Seven Colours, this neocolonial-style hotel is homosexually fabulous, and steps away from the town’s Plaza 9 de Julio. There’s an airy restaurant with a covered terrace, and it overlooks the Quebrada de Purmamarca River. There’s even a garden with an outdoor pool and a hot tub, and if time permits you can book a massage in the spa.
Club Tapiz & Casa Solo Vineyard, Mendoza
Wine lovers will savour sleeping among the vines
14 hectares of vineyards and farmland surround you at this relaxed 19th-century house-turned-hotel. Even better, much of the food served at the restaurant is grown on-site. There’s an outdoor pool, a bar, and a wine cellar with a cozy tasting room. If you fancy some pampering, the spa features mountain views, a sauna and hot tub.
