HOTEL Futangue Hotel & Spa
History & Story
This is the hospitality brainchild following on from the creation of the park. The owners were concerned for the preservation of the native forests in Northern Patagonia. They began constructing a network of hiking trails and at the same time created a foundation, whose objective was to enable education about the environment and bring support to the local community, as well as to encourage academic investigation and social initiatives. Later the decision was made to open the park to the public and the impact of which was so great that development was taken to the next level, to build a hotel so that guests may comprehensively enjoy the variety of activities with first rate integral hospitality. The hotel is part of a private conservation reserve; therefore sustainability and integration with the local community are of its essence. The idea is that the guests can enjoy world-class gastronomy, amenities and spa therapies while surrounded by unique bio-diversity and native forest species.
