The hotel was originally built in 1988. Since then his blue facade has become an iconic reference point from every corner of Kraft bay.

The years passed and the needs were making the hotel grow in pursuit of better service. So it was built a new restaurant with its unique wine cellar, 3 more rooms and the magnificent Spa.

The property is surrounded by 20 hectares of native forest that is protected in the natural vastness of Nahuel Huapi National Park. This allows to give the visitor a unique landscape frame.

Today Las Balsas is an ample residence located on the shores of the magical Nahuel Huapi lake, which for more than 25 years has hosted guests seeking for calmness and relaxation.

Calm, Courtesy, Character, Cuisine & Charme after all these years are still the same characteristics that make our service a different experience, highly valued by our visitors.

Since 1995 is an exclusive member of Relais & Chateaux, a collection of the finest hotels and restaurants in the world, that combines tradition and modernity to the delight of those who love making their trips, the art of living.
