House of Jasmines - Estancia de Charme
Ranked #16 of 86 Hotels in Salta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 August 2012

When travelling without a car, we typically like to stay close to touristic sights so that we can walk to places with ease and spontaneity. In Salta, we had initially thought of doing the same, staying in the city of Salta itself. In the end, we are so, so glad with our decision to stay at House of Jasmines.

First of all, everything about the Estancia is just gorgeous. We realize that "everything" may sound extreme, but really everything --the buildings, the grounds, the views, ... is as beautiful as shown on the website photographs. We had booked a Junior Suite but by sheer luck were upgraded to a full Suite, which was pure bliss: the most comfortable bed we have ever slept on anywhere; a private terrace from where we could gaze at the beautiful grounds and at the mountains in the distance; a separate living room; a separate sitting area between the bedroom and the bathroom; fresh-cut flowers; and a huge and bright bathroom with 2 wash basins and a separate walk-in shower, all awash in white with crisp embroidered linens that reminded us of l'Isle sur la Sorgue in Provence; and windows everywhere to take in the mesmerizing view! The Suite is in a separate building, but it is of a style entirely in keeping with the rest of the Estancia, with the sweet fragrance of fresh flowers permeating throughout. A basket of fresh fruits and plenty of bottled water awaited us in the Suite; housekeeping was twice daily; and turndown service came with the most delectable sweets … (BTW, the Suite can be booked with an adjoining room for families or guests who want to stay connected.)

The grounds and public spaces are just stunning: the original main house with its library, living room, reception area, etc. is richly and tastefully decorated, in a style that recalls the colonial history and traditions of the region but that is thankfully not dated or gaudy. And we loved so much the freedom to wander the beautiful grounds at sunrise and at sunset, to marvel at the grazing horses, the burrowing owls, the local caranchos, and with the mist-shrouded Andes mountains all around us; we could not have asked for a more picturesque pastoral scene! In fact, we liked being at the Estancia so much that we actually gladly cut short our tour of Cafayate one day just so that we could be back at the Estancia earlier, so that we could soak in the experience some more!

Breakfasts and dinners are served in the main building, in a renovated extension that nonetheless is very much in keeping with the style of the original house, although with a bit more of flair and drama with a soaring beamed ceiling, slate-tiled floor, an enormous two-sided open fireplace, an unobstructed view of the grounds and distant mountains all around, and some of the most charming chandeliers. But, if guests want to have breakfast, drinks, dinner, desserts, and/or apperitifs outside, on the terrace, or by the fireplace with the roaring fire -as we did on several occasions, we were always made to feel "but of course"! Breakfast is plentiful, with eggs and coffee made to order, warm croissants and toasts brought to one's table straight from the oven, etc. We were glad to have 2 of our dinners at the house restaurant La Table, where the food was expertly prepared with very fresh ingredients, the ambiance gorgeous with the roaring fire in the fireplace, and the service impeccable.

Service: the staff at House of Jasmines stays true to their Relais & Chateaux emblem and offers guests top-notch service. Upon arrival, Immanuel offered us fresh towels and drinks. "Don't worry about the luggage", he assured us, while giving us a tour of the property. When we arrived at our room, our luggage had already been neatly placed inside. Everyone was quick to say "hello"; nothing was ever too much. The staff at all times was both attentive and discreet. One evening, having overheard our tour guide mentioning that he would pick us up the next morning at 8:30 for our tour, Immanuel immediately suggested that our breakfast be earlier than their usual 8:00 AM start time, at 7:30 instead, and that he could give us a wake-up call too. Refreshing drinks were very promptly offered in the afternoon, when we returned from a day of touring.

Lastly, a few words about the location of the Estancia. At first we were not sure if we wanted to be "that far away" from the city of Salta, where we did want to have a look. It turns out that the city itself is only a quick taxi ride away (~ 15 minutes), so even without one's own car, it wasn't a lot of hassle to take a cab into town for a tour and perhaps again for dinner, and in between one can soak up the good life with a visit to the pool or to the Spa back at the Estancia. This worked for us and gave us the best of both worlds. The Salta Airport is even closer, 5 minutes away!

While we would be the first to admit that all of this did not come cheaply, we would also admit that for us, it was worth every single penny, and more: What an enchanting experience!

Room Tip: Splurge and choose one of the Suites for the full experience!

having made a long journey by road from Chile over the Andes to Salta, this hotel was the perfect oasis. We are a family of 4 (husband, wife and 2 chikdren aged 4 and 8) and had a separate suite with one double and two single beds with 2 bathrooms, a small area separating the adults fro. the children and a separate TV room. The rooms were very clean, the beds comfortable and the service impeccable. The aircon was good. The hotel staff went out of their way to be helpful. Food and wine also superb. The setting is stunning in acres of the hotel's own grounds with parrots flying between the eucalyptus trees and beautiful views/sunsets looking towards the Andes. One tiny point is that the hotel itself is not a working estancia and the "estancia experience" which my wife and daughter went on (booked through the hotel) started in a town and took 40 mins to get into the countryside - although the guide was great and this should not stop you staying at House of Jasmines. We ha e promised to ourselves to return at some point in the future.

This beautiful estate home is approximately 10 minutes from the airport. You completely relax and unwind as you drive toward the house between two rows of large trees. We were greeted at the car and then offered a glass of wine. The house is in the style of the area and beautifully decorated. The grounds are large and stunning. Just when I thought things couldn't get better I was shown the new dining room! I was hosting a supper that evening for 12 and was delighted by the atmosphere - super large fire place, large windows, great decor. The rooms are very simple but well appointed with amenities. Beds very comfortable. Old plumbing- as it is an old house- but good water pressure and temperature. Service at restaurant is the best I have experience throughout Argentina- a country I have visited a dozen times. Is 20 minutes from centre but definitely worth staying at - even if for a night or two!

House of Jasmines exceeded our expectations! We stayed five days with my teenage daughter and though the manager had warned us about the size of the room (due to a really late reservation the only room available was the smallest in the house) it was very well appointed. They had arranged twin beds as requested and the interior design was warm and beautiful. The beds were particularly comfortable and though the bathroom was indeed tiny it had everything you need.
The grounds are gorgeous and the spa is really enjoyable. Staff is helpful and friendly and the restaurant outstanding.
We hope to be back soon!!!

The Estancia House of Jasmines is all what you need and exactly what one expects from a stay on a Estancia in Argentina. Wonderful surroundings, peaceful, quiet (except for the music that plays all day long...), tasteful in every detail and friendly.

Service is slow but very nice and the food is between outstanding to average.

We took several trips from here and were always looking forward to getting back home.

We traveled with Swiss friends and stayed two days and three nights in this hotel which belongs to the Relais & Chateaux chain. Small but comfortable rooms. In our case the adjoining nice terrrace compensated for the size of the two rooms: Cachi and Cafayate. The weather was balmy so we could sit outisde under the sun umbrellas. The staff VERY welcoming, VERY helpful. The restaurant deserves 5*, the food was delicious, the service perfect - and we had dinner here three evenings. The spa is nicely designed, the person in charge would need a little more experience - I have had massages all over the world and the price-quality in this case did not add up. All in all we enjoyed our stay and will certainly return in the future.
