Los Cauquenes – Ushuaia Luxury Lodge
Perched on a cliff overlooking the Beagle Channel, Los Cauquenes is one of Ushuaia’s most classic luxury hotels. Located about fifteen minutes west of town and twenty minutes from the Ushuaia airport, this pleasant oceanfront property is strategically located away from the main city yet within close striking distance of Ushuaia’s top attractions. Los Cauquenes has been a longtime favorite resort for travelers looking for a place to stay in Ushuaia before or after a cruise to Antarctica. However, the hotel also makes a good base for travelers seeking to explore Ushuaia and Tierra del Fuego’s rugged interior.
There are 54 rooms in total at this Ushuaia luxury lodge, with four categories that vary based on the room size and orientation towards the mountains or the channel. Each of these rooms features a refrigerator, private bath, and large glass windows offering expansive views of the surroundings.
The lobby, lounge area, and back verandah feature panoramic vistas of the Beagle Channel, creating an atmosphere of tranquility and contemplation.
The restaurant at Los Cauquenes has been voted the best in Ushuaia and has gained notoriety as one of the best restaurants in Argentina. The chefs are constantly changing the daily specials, with locally inspired entrées such as Patagonian stews and fresh seafood dishes harvested off the coast of Tierra del Fuego.
For those looking to find local seafood joints in town or embark on a daytime excursion, the concierge is readily available to recommend the best eateries and experiences in Ushuaia.
