Until a short time ago, South America was at the margin of the deluxe hotel industry market
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 11, 2008
Sofitel Luxury Hotels has added to its expansion in South America with the October 1 opening of La Reserva Cardales in Argentina. Located just 35 miles from Buenos Aires, this full service resort is the first Sofitel in South America to feature a spa, meeting space, golf course and private residences.
Sofitel La Reserva Cardales combines the high-quality services that characterize the French hotel chain with the warm Argentine spirit. Surrounded by the unique Romulo Otamendi Natural Reserve, the resort embraces its natural environment with landscaped paths and 4,000 species of aged-trees. The resort's centerpiece is a 159-room luxury hotel complex comprised of six two-and three-story buildings, with amenities including fine dining, a heliport, an 18-hole golf course designed by Caprile & Capdepon, soccer fields, clay tennis courts, a 16,000-square-foot therapeutic spa, a 37,000-square-foot convention center, four swimming pools and a private beach.
The country club features private residences and terraced apartments. The private residences have been designed in an avant-garde style by firms such as James Donaldson, San Martín - Lonne, Fuseo Aquitectos, and Geartner - Goyenechea. Situated amongst woods, 102 luxurious one-, two- and three-bedroom terrace apartments will be available for sale or rent
With an investment of more than $90 million USD in this project, Sofitel has committed to helping grow the region's tourism and economy. "Until a short time ago, South America was at the margin of the deluxe hotel industry market," said Nagi Naoufal, the Sofitel brand operations director for South America. "We are interested in developing more Sofitel hotels in the region, building on the growth both of leisure tourism and of business tourism."
