EOLO

Tan lejos y tan cerca: así se ubica EOLO dentro de la geografía patagónica. La propiedad donde se encuentra, una estancia de 4.000 hectáreas, está próxima a los mayores íconos del Sur -la Cordillera de los Andes, los lagos, los glaciares- y a la vez está inmersa en el silencio ventoso de la estepa.

 

Accesible y a la vez exclusivo, EOLO ofrece dos experiencias simultáneas e inusuales en El Calafate. Por un lado, es posible vivir el paisaje mediante la experiencia directa: el hotel tiene actividades únicas para aquellos huéspedes que quieran hacer trekking, cabalgatas, mountain bike y avistaje de aves dentro de la propiedad. Por otro lado, los viajeros pueden recorrer el horizonte con la mirada y entregarse al privilegio del vacío, pero sin abandonar el confort del hotel. Los amaneceres, los atardeceres, la salida de la luna, los infinitos colores del cielo: todo está a la vista desde la cama, el restaurante o cualquiera de los otros espacios comunes que replican, paredes adentro, la simpleza dominante del paisaje.

Habitación Superior

Tienen vista al lago, la estepa y/o la cordillera. Son 12 en total con diferentes decoraciones, de las cuales 2 permiten sumar una cama extra, de modo que la ocupación sea triple. La superficie promedio es de 37 m2.

Habitación Premium

Además de la ventana al exterior -que también tiene la categoría Superior-, poseen un segundo ventanal con vistas al jardín del hotel. Son 3 en total y la decoración es diferente en cada una de ellas. Todas tienen la opción de sumar una cama extra. La superficie promedio es de 47 m2.

Habitación Corner

Poseen un doble ventanal en las esquinas, que permite que la inmensidad del paisaje se integre sutilmente a los ambientes. Es la mejor categoría de habitación. Sólo hay dos en el hotel. La superficie es de 48 m2.
