Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt


In Buenos Aires’ prestigious Recoleta neighbourhood stands the elegant Palacio Duhau, a neoclassical palace with modern twists.

Originally constructed for the Duhaus family in the 1930s, this mansion is now owned by the Park Hyatt Group and has hosted various famous guests, including Barack Obama.

Divided into two sections, the modern wing boasts contemporary rooms with palace views, while the Palacio wing has 23 suites that capture the style of the Belle Époque. With high ceilings and marble floors, the hotel is decked out in grandeur, but the friendly staff will make sure you feel at home.

What we love about Palacio Duhau

  • The hotel is located on Avenida Alvear, the iconic swanky avenue of Recoleta, Buenos Aires’ most upscale district.
  • The terraced gardens are beautiful. Enjoy breakfast here and, later, savour an evening cocktail.
  • Don’t miss afternoon tea on Los Salones del Piano Nobile.
  • Expect top-notch service – a butler will even help arrange your stay, from dinner reservations and spa treatments to booking taxis.
  • The Duhau Restaurant & Vinoteca provides an outstanding dining experience, featuring an extensive wine list of 500 bottles.
  • Unwind after a busy day in the Ahín spa with a dip in the pool or a massage.
What to do at Palacio Duhau Park Hyatt

Days at Palacio Duhau can be spent however you please.

Start with an al fresco breakfast, then a stroll through the botanical gardens. Check out the hotel’s very own art gallery, Paseo de las Artes Duhau, before heading out to Recoleta’s leafy streets on foot (or two wheels on one of the hotel’s bicycles).

Return to the Palacio Duhau for afternoon tea, best enjoyed on the terrace overlooking the gardens. Ask your butler to make you a dinner reservation in advance. The old-world steakhouse Fervor is on your doorstep, as is the Relais & Châteaux-owned restaurant Aramburu. Alternatively, opt for a wine and cheese pairing from the hotel’s cheese cellar. End the day with a cocktail by the fireplace in the Oakbar.
