Hello, Buenos Aires. As if we didn’t have reason enough to pop over for a visit, this stunning luxury property of Phillippe Starck grandeur caught our eye and we couldn’t be more captivated. Enter Faena, a converted riverfront granary rife with rich velvet accents, antique touches, and hints of Belle Epoque elegance scattered throughout. In other words, a cross between a 1920s Spanish cabaret and a Wes Anderson film, to put it quite simply.

Apart from its grandiose design and unabashed luxury, Faena’s amenities are something to write home about. Guests bask in the Buenos Aires experience day and night with the hotel’s yoga and meditation classes, exploring the city’s rich offerings surrounding the hotel’s unbeatable location, and sipping cocktails into dusk in the library lounge, passing the time until dinner and a tango lesson or two taught by local experts. Luxury Attaché clients enjoy exclusive perks within the property and its stunning amenities; contact your Travel Attaché for details.
