Vines Resort & Spa Mendoza, Argentina– In 2005, Pablo Gimenez Riili and Michael Evans recognized the world-class potential of Mendoza’s Uco Valley and invested in land. Their purpose: to bring the dream of owning a vineyard and making your very own premium quality wine to reality. Each step of the way has been a labor of love and we enjoy nothing more than to share the fruits of our labor with you. A place not easily found, The Vines of Mendoza is even harder to leave. Our guests feel its magnetic pull. To share the best of Mendoza with even more travelers from around the world, we’ve created The Vines Resort & Spa. Offering laid-back luxury at the base of the majestic Andes Mountains, it’s the ultimate retreat for wine lovers and outdoor adventurers. We believe in treating guests like old friends and go out of our way to make sure you experience the very best of our region.  The perfect blend of rustic elegance and modern comfort, the Resort features spacious private Villas, a luxurious Spa, world-class service, and breathtaking views of the Andes at every turn. Legendary Argentine chef Francis Mallmann serves up inspired regional fare and traditional asado feasts at our signature restaurant, Siete Fuegos. In our vineyards, you can harvest grapes or make your own custom wine, working side-by-side with world-renowned consultant winemaker Santiago Achával. As our guest, you may find yourself exploring the rugged countryside by horseback, saluting 300 days of sunshine in a yoga class, taking a fly fishing excursion on the Rio Mendoza, stargazing from your private deck, or even blending your own Malbec. Along the way, we’ll share the warmth and magic of Argentina with you as  only a local can.

The Singular Hotel in Patagonia, Chile, Our roots run deep here at The Singular Patagonia, so we are passionate about maintaining a connection to the past, and about making sure we keep the pioneering spirit of Patagonia alive. It’s one of the main reasons we built this hotel out of an old industrial building with a pioneer pedigree. The Frigorifico Bories operated as a cold storage plant in 1915 until 1971. During that time, it was a centerpiece of life in this part of Patagonia, employing hundreds and establishing a strong industrial presence in the region.  Our owners—whose ancestors were among the pioneers who worked at the plant—had an idea. They wanted to return this building to its former glory, but with a twist: transforming it into the finest and most unique luxury hotel in Patagonia. Special care was taken to ensure that repairs and replacements were performed with the same materials as the existing structures. In the end, it took ten years to make the original dream a reality and  the building was named a National Historical Monument. The Victorian engine room, the tannery, the blacksmith shop… as you walk through this property, you’ll find constant reminders of an industrial past. These are reflections of a different time, when risk-takers came to Patagonia to start a new life in an untamed land.  This is The Singular’s celebration of heritage: bringing Patagonia’s proud past back to life, both for the members of the community and for our guests.

The Singular Santiago, Chile   Set in the heart of Chile’s capital, The Singular Santiago hotel is an elegant combination of  luxury, impeccable style and uncompromising service. With a location in the city’s most charming and historic neighborhood, you can expect only the best during your stay with us. Built to blend seamlessly into the Lastarria  neighborhood, The Singular Santiago combines the style of early 20th century buildings with neoclassical French architectural influences. The hotel’s design embraces the artistic heritage of the neighborhood, while adding a cutting-edge modernity: it is an innovative homage to the city’s history and culture. The interior of the hotel recalls the days of yore: a tribute to the palaces of past centuries that sets the tone for the entire environment. Each doorway is a portal not just into another room, but to another place: a Singular setting with an ambiance all its own.

Alto Atacama, Chile: Overwhelmed by the majesty of a desert painted with vibrant colors and contrasts, and  touched with breathtaking immensity, Alto Atacama was conceived to fit gently into the  surrounding environment, to maintain the untouched beauty of the desert.  Inspired to welcome adventurous hearts, ours is an invitation to look less with your phone  and more with your eyes. This is a journey to be treasured. Our concept is simple and  authentic, we do not like to impose, we are much better at listening.  Moved with humble respect for nature and the local culture, we are proud to promote this piece of the world that has been their home for thousands of years. Proud and also committed  to protect their heritage.   Alto Atacama, a multiple award winning hotel, a recognized luxury lodge, a stunning location… More than that, a place high up, closer to the stars…

Casa Higueras, Valparaiso- Valparaíso was a stopover for 19th-century ships travelling between Atlantic and Pacific ports via the Strait of Magellan. European immigrants built grand mansions on steep hills and the city became renowned for its bohemian blend of ethnic traditions. After decades of neglect following the opening of the Panama Canal, ‘Valpo’ was named a UNESCO World Heritage site and is busy reclaiming its mojo.  Atop Cerro Alegre (‘Cheerful Hill’), Hotel Casa Higueras exemplifies the new standard. Its restoration tucked 20 spacious rooms  (many with ocean-view terraces) into a former mansion’s elegant craftsman-style interior with 5-star flair. Expect mod cons (keyless entry, noise-reducing windows) and plenty of pampering (double-sheeted linen, Belgian chocolates). A Mediterranean-style terraced garden cascades to an infinity pool. Step out to explore a maze of cobbled streets lined with homes painted a rainbow of vivid colors, or ride the century-old El Peral ascensor (funicular) to the harbor.

Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa, Easter Island  The latest green initiatives meet traditional architecture and hospitality at this peaceful retreat on the coast of remote Easter Island. Guest rooms, whose exterior resembles the ancient Orongo ceremonial village, are fashioned partially from local materials such as volcanic rock, cypress woods, and natural clay. Inside, modern styling and luxurious appointments await, including oversize tubs, super-comfortable beds, and unbeatable views in some rooms. Sustainable practices extend to natural lighting and recycling, as well as local food sourcing. The holistic spa’s four treatment rooms resemble local cave dwellings. The hotel’s lobby, restaurants, and lounge areas evoke a casa bote, a traditional house that is shaped much like an upside-down boat. The hotel offers full, partial board & bed & breakfast rates

Australis is an expedition cruise company that specializes in exploring the “end of the world” — the pristine waterways of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego at the bottom end of South America.  Catering to only around 200 passengers maximum, our ships undertake three-, four- and seven-night itineraries between September and April each year. Our voyages sail between Punta Arenas (Chile) and Ushuaia (Argentina) along the Strait of Magellan, the Beagle Channel and other legendary passages including many places where few other cruise ships venture. During 25 years of sailing through the region, we’ve had the privilege to introduce more than 100,000 travelers to the glaciers, fjords, sub-polar forests and amazing marine and terrestrial wildlife of Patagonia. Fully owned and operated by Chileans, our objective as a company is providing Australis passengers from around the world with an unforgettable cruise experience that includes extraordinary contact with nature, amazing cuisine and the best onboard service in South America.

La Belle Juliette, Paris – As lovely as Ladurée macaroons – and similarly coloured – La Belle Juliette hotel on Paris’ Left Bank leaves a sweet taste in your mouth. Soft pink décor, violet-hued paints and humbug-striped sofas adorn its salons and boudoir rooms, but for a taste of its socialite namesake’s penchant for the avant-garde, book into the new garden wing, a haven in bright colours and striking contemporary lines.

Hotel Baume, Paris -For a new twist on one of Paris’s classic styles, look no further than the Hôtel Baume, an updated Art Deco gem on the storied Left Bank. Though it takes its design cues from the Thirties — textured silk, exotic woods, chrome, mirrors and shagreen — it’s a thoroughly contemporary boutique hotel, augmenting its air of refined elegance with some thoughtful modern details.Your inner aesthete will thrill to your environs: seconds from Boulevard Saint-Germain, you’re situated on a quiet lane at the very nexus of Old Paris. Here you’ll find Sartre’s favorite cafés surrounded with the bustle of the Latin Quarter, all within an easy stroll of the Baume’s unmistakable façade. Linger wistfully on the banks of the Seine, transport yourself in the pews of Notre Dame, pick your jaw up off the floor at the Louvre — and at the end of the day, an Art Deco vision to cap the whole thing off.

Les Dames du Pantheon– In the shadow of France’s monument to its greatest men, Paris’ enchanting chanteuses, exotic beauties and literary darlings have left their mark on hotel Les Dames du Panthéon. Decked out in jewel-toned prints, sumptuous silks and retro furnishings, six floors of coquettish rooms await inside – a boudoir bolthole just steps from the Latin Quarter’s historic cobbled streets.
