The luxurious Arakur Ushuaia hotel is located within the Cerro Alarken Nature Reserve in Tierra del Fuego, the southernmost province of the Argentine Patagonia. Arakur Ushuaia is a member of The Leading Hotels of the World and it is the only resort in the Southern Patagonia to have become part of this exclusive group of hotels. Close to Mount Alarken's summit and located on a natural balcony 800 feet above sea level, the luxurious hotel is found in all its splendor, amidst a 100 hectares of native forests of lengas, nires and coihues, which are home to diverse species of fauna and flora, offering the perfect balance between calmness and adventure. Offering privileged views of the city of Ushuaia and of the Beagle Channel, Arakur Ushuaia is located just 10 minutes from the city and the port of Ushuaia and 20 minutes from the international airport and the Cerro Castor Ski Resort. With more than 100 available rooms and suites, Arakur Ushuaia was created to enjoy its facilities, respecting and deeply caring for the environment by promoting the wise and sustainable use of resources. The magnificent lobby welcomes the guests with its large windows, the warmth of their fireplaces, and a sophisticated decor made with fine materials from different Argentine regions, such as craft leather and Southamerican aromatic wood: rosewood, lapacho and incense, which provide the stay with warmth. The Hansgrohe faucets and Duravit bathroom appliances with Starck design, distinguish the stay by their exquisite sophistication. The sophisticated and native elegance combines with the leading-edge comfort technology, with a Samsung LED TV 40", a home automation system with led-lighting control, alarm clock scheduling and automated curtain opening, air renewal and humidification, geothermal cooling system and acoustic insulation, among others. Through their large windows, each room in Arakur Ushuaia offers panoramic views. Towards the south: the city of Ushuaia and the Beagle Channel and to the north: the valleys, the mountain ranges and the Cerro Alarken Nature Reserve. HEALTH, WELLNESS AND FUN For calm and relaxation, the hotel offers a pool area with 200 m2 (2152.8 ft²) water mirror pools, a 17-meters lap swimming pool, an edge infinity in-out relax pool with underwater music, which, in the indoor section, offers two hydrojets areas and a kids' pool as well as two hot tubs for up to ten people in the outdoor deck with panoramic city and sea views. The area has a solarium, radiant floor heated changing rooms, a pool bar, massage and hairdressing services. For a healthy and complete training routine, the fitness area offers Technohym technology and an 80 m2 sector of treadmills, elliptical trainers, stationary bicycles, Kinesis, weight benches and dumbbells; all of these with a panoramic bay view. TYPICAL FLAVORS FROM TIERRA DEL FUEGO At Arakur Ushuaia, the "haute cuisine" shines in a beautiful environment in La Cravia restaurant, where an Argentine and international menu can be ordered either in a buffet service, a typical Argentine grill for everyone to see or a la carte. Nestled in its terrace on the edge of the hill, the restaurant is the ideal setting for having breakfast, lunch or dinner after a walk or a ski day. Some of the delicacies guests can enjoy, with an unparalleled view of the bay and the city, are king crab, lamb and Patagonian seabass, among others. A wide range of drinks, local hand-brewed beers and Argentine wines together with cheese and Patagonian cold cuts platters await at the Lobby Bar in order to enjoy a unique sunset over the bay to the soft melody of the Steinway average tail piano.

Thank you very much for your comments Kattya L!
We are glad you have had a memorable stay with us, hoping to welcome you once again,
What is there to say about this place other than it is pretty wonderful. Set atop a hill/mountain, this hotel really stands out from others in Ushuaia. Part minimalist, part futurisitic - the common areas and rooms are elegant and nicely appointed. We had a...More
Arrived after an 8 hour long flight. Reception was nice and the hotel is in a nice location (though there is only a dirt road leading to it). Happily jumped into the shower only to find out .. there is no hot water. Only a...More
We arrived at the Arakur on a cold, misty afternoon. The beautiful views of the mountains, town and harbor below were partially obscured. Perhaps that is why the magnificent architecture of the hotel seemed even more welcoming. Constructed of many different kinds of wood, even...More

Ushuaia is a great little town with lots of shops and restaurants and everything you need. September is "shoulder" season and is still going to be cold and not many tourists around. Expect temps not much above freezing... More
