Trip Planner: Buenos Aires
By Maria MacDonald
The garden at the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires
Just an overnight flight away, Buenos Aires is one of South America’s most sophisticated and stylish cities, alive with Old World charm and New World grapes.
Wake up with the “rain shower”—several nozzles shooting water from all sides—in your luxurious suite at the Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, located in the heart the city’s upscale Recoleta neighborhood. Enjoy Champagne brunch on the terrace, and don’t forget to pamper yourself with a Malbec-infused treatment at the on-site Ahin Wellness & Spa.
Take a stroll down Avenida Alvear to experience the Old World elegance and designer boutiques of the Recoleta district. Shop for supple leather bags and belts at Peter Kent and fabulous couture at Tramando.
While in the neighborhood, wander into the Alvear Palace Hotel and admire the lavish lobby while sipping on a cortado and nibbling a white-chocolate and raspberry macaroon. Before heading out, make a reservation to return for an unforgettable afternoon of high tea among Argentine aristocrats.
