An authentic gem

The Hotel

The hotel was originally built in 1988. Since then, its characteristic blue facade has referenced the place from the bay, becoming an icon of the place.

The years passed and the demands were making the hotel grow in pursuit of a better service. This is how a new restaurant was incorporated and its exclusive (and jealous) wine cellar, more rooms and the majestic Spa.

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

Today Las Balsas is a large residence located on the shores of the magical Lake Nahuel Huapi, which for more than 25 years has been hosting guests in search of peace and relaxation.

Calm, Courtesy, Character, Kitchen & Charme are the same characteristics that make our service, a different experience, highly valued by our visitors.

Since 1995, he has been an exclusive member of Relais & Chateaux, the collection of the most refined hotels and restaurants in the world, combining tradition and modernity to the delight of those who love making their trips, the art of living.


The refinement in the decoration and the colors chosen offer a warm and welcoming atmosphere to enjoy the serenity, peace and calm of Las Balsas.
