A smart hotel complex in a nature reserve on a mountainside above Ushuaia offers spectacular views over the Beagle Channel.

The Arakur Ushuaia Resort and Spa is the ultimate top-end place to stay if real enjoyment of your accommodation is to be a big part of your experience in Ushuaia. The hotel is situated on the slopes of the mountain Arakur, facing the hand of ice-spiked peaks which soar above the port: from its lofty elevation there are astonishing views not only of the Andean chain but also the busy little port and the rocky shores of the Beagle Channel.

The hotel sits in the Arakur Nature Reserve and there are walking trails within for you to explore. In the building itself, an ultra-contemporary affair featuring glossy Patagonian wood, there’s also plenty of opportunity both to relax and to get some exercise: a fitness centre, heated pool, children's pool and hot tubs both indoors and also on decking in the open air.

You can dine at the smart, sophisticated restaurant surveying the vistas through floor to ceiling windows. The property’s isolated location is handy for the ski slopes in winter, but you'll be using the shuttle bus or taxis to get around to and from the city and airport.

Our Expert's Opinion

Opening the curtains on my first morning and looking out over the city of Ushuaia and the Beagle Channel really built the excitement that I was at the end of the world! This is the best place to stay in Ushuaia - try to have at least one evening meal at the excellent restaurant, as well as allowing time to explore the Arakur Nature Reserve.
