This might be the most unique luxury experience you will ever encounter. All free standing villas within the vineyards. Imagine 55 acres of vineyards with private villas secluded with westerly views of the Andes and all the luxuries you would expect of a five-star hotel... in a casual environment of natural building materials and textiles (photos on previous spread).
Indoors... separate living room, bedroom, office, walk-in closet, wood burning fireplace, king bed with Egyptian cotton, spa style bathroom, dual vanities, separate shower and vintage soaking tub.
Outdoors... outdoor shower and garden, plunge pool, wood burning fireplace, and very private.
Upstairs... rooftop terrace with mattress and wood burning fireplace. They will serve you dinner or make bedding for an overnight under the stars.
Service... nightly turndown, morning wake-up, breakfast, twice daily housekeeping and an attention to pleasing your every desire.

The highlight of our trip to Argentina - exploring the winelands was lovely.

Cavas Wine Lodge is a very special hotel, the rooms are casitas out in the vineyards, very spacious with your own garden and plunge pool, as well as a roof terrace to either watch the stars or the sunrise, it was lovely.

It's a Relais & Chateaux hotel so it's designed very tastefully and the food is lovely. There are only 17 rooms so it feels intimate and you have a private garden area with a plunge pool.

The rooms are large and tastefully decorated with huge beds and a log fire - both in the room and on your roof terrace - but hopefully that won't be needed. It was nearly 40 degrees when we were there in December. Apparently January is a no-go month because it is so incredibly hot, even for the locals.

Food at the hotel is very well prepared, the breakfast is lovely and I recommend the very nice Tomatican for breakfast: eggs scrambled with tomatoes and peppers; the à la carte menu for dinner is varied and the hotel will also serve your meals on the roof of your casita, if you'd prefer a more romantic setting than the dining room or terrace.

On one of the evenings we were there the hotel organised a Tango evening, followed by a traditional Argentine barbecue. Having gone to Buenos Aires' allegedly best and most expensive Roja tango show, as well as a local Milonga, we preferred Cavas' event for the explanations given by the hotel's owner, Cecilia, the romantic setting in the hotel's amphitheatre and the canapés and sparkling wine served throughout.

I had presumed that the subsequent barbecue would be a more communal affair, a chance to chat to other guests, but it was actually fairly formal with a set menu served to your table but the evening and the food nevertheless was still very good.

The service from all of the reception and restaurant teams, especially the sommelier, was very personal. With only a small amount of rooms you're able to get to know some of the other guests and share your experiences of the days' activities, which include vineyard tours (obviously, the main attraction), horse riding or hiking in the Andes, as well as others. The hotel will prepare a suggested itinerary for you in advance for your time there.

We did a horse ride through the vineyards to Viña Cobos, which offered a very professional introduction to their wines - I recommend their Malbec comparison tasting - followed by a tour of the winery. We then had a picnic in the estancia where the horses were stabled, prepared by Cavas. If you do this ask for Andréas, our guide from the stable, who was a delight to spend the day with, very interesting and entertaining guy who looked after us very well.

A visit to the city of Mendoza is also recommended to see the five public squares that the city is built around: Independent Square in the centre and the other four laid out around it, like a number five on a dice; each of the four named to reflect the various countries that the immigrants making up the population of the city had come from, such as Chile and Spain. On significant days, those respective communities often gather for celebrations in 'their' square.

Overall impression of the hotel is: serene atmosphere and well organised with the satisfaction of guests paramount.

We spent four nights in this hotel and we'd recommend no less.

My husband and I spent 4 days in Buenos Aires then flew to Mendoza. This Lodge was so beautiful with the grapes still hanging on the vines..we visited right before harvesting so the grapes were plentiful. The property is very romantic like something one would see in pictures. The service was great and the food as well. The wine tasting was over the top...so much fun! On our last evening there my husband surprised me with a fire burning in the roof top fireplace.. They had snacks and a bottle of champagne along with blankets and cushions in place. AMAZING. I can't say enough about this place. We will be back!

Words cannot properly describe the heavenly experience that we enjoyed at Cavas in February 2015. After checking into a woeful hotel in Mendoza, we remembered that friends had stayed at Cavas in October 2014, and raved about their stay. Several phone calls later, we arrived at Cavas the following morning, and the magic began. Welcoming and pampering staff, knowledgeable about the wines and the region, fully attuned to what we hoped to see and enjoy. The guest lodge that we stayed in faced the Andes, and on the first night of our stay we had a candlelight dinner on our private rooftop terrace while enjoying a spectacular view of the sun setting behind the mountains. Our lodge was simple, soothing, and elegant, and the whole sense of the stay was that we were guests at our own private sanctuary. Our only lament was having to leave. The good news is we now know where we will return when we vacation again in Argentina. Truly an exceptional resort, and will stay in our memory as a perfect respite and restorative idyll.

our room was very spacious and comfortable. The terrace on the roof gave exceptional views of the night time sky. Nice patio with our own plunge pool was also nice. They arranged good wine tasting tours with their own drivers as well as many other activities if you purchase the package. The staff is exceptional and go out of the way to make sure your needs are met. So friendly! The food was also exceptional. One drawback that we had was the lack of hot water for all but our last evening there. Hopefully that problem has been resolved.
