A well known Relais Chateau establishment outside of Salta. The room we had was small but comfortable. The breakfast was good as was a BBQ lunch. But the dinner choices were disappointing. Wine choices were good.
This place oozes bliss: awakening to birdsong, watching horses grazing, flowering vines/trees and fresh flowers everywhere, classic English music (80’s to current) and a sprawling layout that allowed for several intimate indoor/outdoor seating areas where you could find your own private space. A special touch was the large framed black and white photographs throughout that depicted the people and places of rural Argentina. All coffee was cappuccino/latte style – a welcome respite from the usual. Restaurant food was excellent with a special nod to the quinoa appetizer. Wifi excellent. Warm, attentive staff. And we just had a standard room. Reserve your spa treatment early as they were heavily booked.
That’s a fantastic place, owned by a fantastic family.
Bucolic setting – listening to birds & watching horses grazing. Several private seating areas so that you can always find your own private space.
We recently stayed at the House of Jasmines near Salta for two nights. The hotel feels more like staying in a large country home which it once was (Robert Duvall’s!). The decor is simple, beautiful and it perfectly reflects the culture of the area. Food wonderful, especially the BBQ night which features a huge array of delicious meats and other local delicacies.
Went to Salta on February 2015 and stayed there. I must say its a unique countryside hotel. My room was 200yrds away from the main building in a separate house where they have set up 3 rooms. Everything is top notch, starting with the employees attention, food, rooms, views from the room, etc. it’s half an hour away from Salta city which isn’t that bad. Great pool for summer and winter, what else can I say, all in all a perfect experience.
Actually reviewing the restaurant, where we stopped for lunch, and not the hotel… Our lunch was very good, with well prepared and tasty comfort food with a twist, in a nice setting and attentive service. Wine list not up up the level of the hotel and restaurant, though.
Outstanding bucolic setting with views of the mountains, horses and delightful accommodations. Excellent, very helpful staff helped make the great setting even better. Strongly recommend staying here when in Salta
We spent 2 night at the House. Had an amazing experience, very kids friendly. It was Christmas eve and we had a great time. the food is unbelievable! The service is really good., They are in all the details for you to have a great time. the rooms are really nice.
This is one of the most charming places I’ve ever been.. Set in the foothills of the mountains surrounding Salta – just a few km from the town – this is an absolute idyll of beautiful buildings, top notch spa, outstanding service and quality of food. We first visited just for the spa (which was sublime – and surprisingly cheap) and came back just to have lunch on our last day. Both times we had the place almost to ourselves, and were welcome to sample all the amenities including the outdoor pool. Not enough superlatives could describe our experience!!
House of Jasmines is more than an hotel. The main building has been restored with taste and beauty – respecting the spirit of the original estancia. Few miles away from Salta, it is nested in a huge property which offers a breathtaking view on the mountains. Don’t hesitate to go for horse riding – it’s worth it.
We spent 3 days and 2 nights at this estancia and it was a very different experience. Our room was very clean and cosy. The staff were extremely helpful and even packed us an early morning picnic breakfast. Our days were very full and so we were unable to utilize the many facilities offered at this wonderful retreat and that is the only reason I am giving this 4 stars. Diana and the staff were extremely attentive throughout our stay and they made us feel very special.
Thank you soo much for this amazing experience !! Food, staff… Just perfect !
What an amazingly beautiful place to relax and enjoy NW Argentina. The assistance was so professional, the food was incredible ! We hope to return !
