Greece-based luxury boutique hotel group Grace Hotels has debuted in Latin America with the opening of the Grace Cafayate, Argentina.

Located in Argentina’s Calchaqui Valley, the Grace Cafayate is a hotel, spa and residential villas development in the Salta province of north-west Argentina.

Built on the La Estancia de Cafayate golf and residential estate, the hotel has 52 rooms and suites within its main building and 20 residential villas.

The villas feature two bedrooms with large en-suite bathrooms, dressing room, living room with an integrated kitchen, cellar and fireplace, plus outdoor hot tub, terrace and grill.

The property offers outdoor dining at the Pool Bar & Grill, and another restaurant, Muse by Jonathan Cartwright.

The Muse restaurant is the second unit for the group, developed after its success at The Vanderbilt Grace in Rhode Island, US.

Grace Hotels CEO Philippe Requin said the opening of Grace Cafayate is an exciting moment for the company and it is proud of its expansion into Latin America.

"We bring elegance and sophistication to Argentina’s breathtaking wine country on a renowned sporting estate and promise guests many magical moments and treasured memories."

The property offers a heated pool with integrated whirlpool, a spa with five treatment rooms including a wellness menu with local therapeutic traditions, and a gym with Life Fitness equipment.

The La Estancia de Cafayate estate includes an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Bob Cupp, two polo fields, the Clubhouse and the Athletic Club & Spa that features an indoor counter-current heated swimming pool, a 300m² gym, three tennis courts and a squash court.

Guests can also enjoy cycle and hiking trails along the extensive paths around the valley.

Grace Hotels, part of the Libra Group, which is owned by the Logothetis family, plans to open more hotels in South America.
