House of Jasmines
Northwestern Salta is full of color, charm, and charisma. House of Jasmines is secluded outside the city on 296 acres of land surrounded by the mountains in the distance. Surrounded by rambling grounds with gardens, greens, and woods, the hotel is split between a 100-year-old converted colonial house that’s been renovated and new villas. The décor is a clever mix of country warmth and sophistication with a nod to local artisan handicrafts with hand-woven textiles and alpaca, a silver-colored noble metal.
The rooms are well appointed with Egyptian linens, hard wood floors, and fluffy duvet covers for the chilly nights. Many rooms have four-poster beds and antique furniture with elegant touches like fresh flowers from their garden.
Make time to explore the miles of trails on bike, have a treatment in their spa, go for a swim or cuddle up by the fireplace as the sun sets. The excellent restaurant, La Table, now the finest restaurant in Salta, specializes in zesty Northwestern cuisine with a focus on crunchy empanadas salteñas, slow-roasted meats in the mud oven, and all vegetables hail from their organic garden. Pair with a snappy Torrontés from a local boutique winery like Tacuil and listo.
