Ollie, Kate B and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

At the point where the Iguazu River joins the Parana River in the north-east of Argentina, the Iguazu Falls (Big Water in the local Guaraní language) plunges over hard granite into a wide gorge in a series of gigantic waterfalls two miles in length and more than 240 feet deep. The thunderous roar of crashing water and the multicoloured mist which rises above the falls is natural beauty and grandeur at its best.

The rooms of the hotel boast stunning views of either the falls themselves or the forest behind, all of them are bright and airy and lead out onto a balcony.

Garganta del Diablo, the hotel's restaurant offers a variety of dining options combining international cuisine with traditional methods of cooking and local produce; here guests can enjoy views of the stunning surroundings whilst eating.

The new SEDA spa features a variety of therapeutic treatments which guests can indulge in, these range from a spacious Zen relaxing room to a large hot water whirlpool. There are two swimming pools as well as a floodlit tennis court, and beyond the hotel there is lots on offer such as trekking, walking, rafting, horse riding, bird watching and more.

Why we love it

The beautiful Iguazu Falls (Iguassu in Brazil), lies at the meeting point of Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil - so you can see the delights of not one country but three.
