La Merced del Alto occupies an unspoiled corner of the earth, where the vast, breathtaking Valles Calchaquíes give way to the Nevado de Cachi mountain range in the heart of Salta. A hacienda-style boutique hotel with understated, stylish décor, La Merced de Alto is characterized by its genuine VIP service distinctive to the northern Argentinian region. Explore the nearby mountains or simply relax and enjoy the silence of the colorful and snowy peaks visible from every room.
Flooded with natural light, the La Merced del Alto has 13 whitewashed rooms and one exclusive suite are adorned with local textiles, central heating, and private en-suite bathrooms. Various common spaces, such as the living room and family room, boast adobe, wood, and cane features from the region. These retreats are ideal for a glass of wine by the fireplace, connecting with loved ones via the Internet, or watching television and movies. Enjoy various paintings by local artists on display throughout—an exhibition that remains year round.
Guests are treated to breakfast buffets featuring pastries from the best patisserie in the valley and sweeping views of the surrounding hills, rivers, and streams. For lunch and dinner, the hotel’s restaurant features an international a la carte menu highlighting Andean style gourmet cuisine such as roast aubergines stuffed with black olives and buffalo mozzarella, duck ravioli in sage butter, and Torrontes wine Bavaroise with hot peaches. End the evening with a cognac nightcap from the bar or a glass of wine from the wine cellar specializing in bottles from the Calchaquí Valleys.
Relax by the refreshingly clear swimming pool or at the elegant La Merced del Alto Spa, taking advantage of the two massage rooms, open-air Jacuzzi, Scottish shower, solarium, and reading and relaxation room available to guests. La Merced del Alto is only one mile from the historic town of Cachi and five miles from Cardones National Park, making it an opportune oasis on any South American journey.Request Information
