Melia Iguazu Resort and Spa
The only hotel in Argentina's Iguazú National Park, offering views of the falls and the unique chance to explore the park before most other visitors.
Look no further if you’d like to stay close to the Iguazú Falls on the Argentine side – the Melia Iguazú Resort and Spa is the only one, and a great choice it is too. A high quality resort, it is more than just a base for visiting the falls. The hotel’s parkland grounds are set within the protected jungle of Iguazú National Park and it hosts a brand new 50m outdoor pool, children's pool, comprehensive spa, gym and restaurant.
Having acquired the property from Sheraton in 2017, the well regarded Melia group has made a huge investment in the refurbishment of this gorgeously located property. Guest accommodation is bright and roomy featuring the lean lines of contemporary-design furnishings; snow-white décor and blond flooring adding to the ambiance of light and space. You can choose a room or junior suite with rainforest views or opt for the hotel's real pièce de résistance – its Falls View rooms, which overlook the monumental cascades of Iguazú itself – albeit from a distance. All have balconies or a terrace where you can sip a sundowner in the golden light of the late afternoon.
Along with the views, a unique advantage of staying at the Melia is the privilege of being able to explore the national park, directly from your doorstep, before most other visitors arrive.
