Fresh Picks: Mio Buenos Aires

- Joy Pecknold, Passport blog editor

“Fresh Picks” features the latest luxury properties admitted into the Kiwi Collection. This week, we take a peek inside Mio Buenos Aires.

Where: The Paris of South America, Buenos Aires is where you find that oft desired European flair west of the Atlantic. This hotel sits in a prime spot, conveniently located near designer stores, art museums and fine restaurants, not to mention the Recoleta Cemetery where Ms. Evita Peron rests in peace.

What: Walk through the 18-foot door made of old French oak barrels and find a boutique 30 rooms. That door tips you off to the hotel’s special relationship with grapes; it’s owned by the wine-making Catena family. Downstairs at the lounge, take a flight of wine. Upstairs at the eighth floor spa, wind down with a wine treatment for maximum relax.

Who: Those with wine palates and design palates.

Why: While the vino is a big draw, Mario Dasso’s hand-carved Calden wood bathtubs really tip it over the edge. Cab Sauv and long soak, don’t mind if we do.
