Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Design Suites Calafate has a stunning lake-view setting in Patagonia. 

Rooms at Design Suites Calafate

The rooms are fitted out in muted nature-inspired colours and rugged natural materials, but with funky contemporary touches such as desks and chairs that look like they come from a 1950s office. The Lake View suites are well worth booking for the sweeping panoramas of Lago Argentino.

Food & Drink

The hotel features a restaurant serving progressive Argentinean cuisine, and a wine bar featuring a wide range of local wines.


There is a spa with a sauna, gym, indoor heated pool and massage facilities, and an art gallery and design shop.

Activities at Design Suites Calafate

We can organise boat trips to see the famous Perito Moreno Glacier as it calves huge mini-icebergs into the lake - truly spectacular! There’s also a regular shuttle bus service into the centre of El Calafate, with its museum, cafés and bars.
