Vinotherapy, wellness butlers and wine tasting collide as SB Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites launches in Argentina

Argentina’s first female winemaker Susana Balbo has opened her flagship hotel in the Mendoza wine region, called SB Winemaker’s House & Spa Suites.

After four decades dedicated to the wine industry, Balbo created the bespoke estate and luxury boutique hotel in Argentina with her daughter, Ana Lovaglio Balbo.

With striking views of the Andes, the hotel has been conceived to reflect Balbo’s authentic wine roots in everything from design, décor and setting to wellness, culinary experiences, art and nature.

The estate’s wellness offering consists of seven glass-walled spa suites, claimed to be the first ever offered at a Latin American wine resort. Each one features a steamroom, experience shower, massage table and access to a Wellness Butler. Four of the accommodations are also equipped with a dry sauna.

In addition to their own living room, terrace and curated wine fridge, the suites all feature a private garden with an outdoor fire pit and heated loungers hidden by a wall of foliage and volcanic stone. Upon arrival, every guest is greeted with a 15-minute massage on their suite’s heated loungers.

The seven individually-designed suites are completed with a deep bathtub which is inspired by the concrete egg wine tanks used in the fermentation process.

Guests can enjoy the in-room spa features at leisure or experience a guided experience with the in-house Wellness Butler who’ll help them choose from several vinotherapy spa rituals showcasing local herbs.

Rituals range from geothermal therapy massages to a grape seed scrub but the highlight is the destination's two bespoke multi-sensory treatments – Deluxe SB Detox Ritual and Deluxe SB Frutos De A Vid Ritual. These consist of two three-hour wellbeing journeys incorporating various healing therapies such as a steam bath, restorative shower, hydration wraps and massages.

For those looking to stay active during their stay, the spa suites offer an in-room yoga mat and exercise kit plus the option to book PT sessions and visit a local gym in Mendoza city.

Soaking up the culture
To create a well-rounded experience, SB Winemaker’s House provides access to a number of adventure excursions designed to make the most of Mendoza’s natural setting.

For example, guests can take multi-day trips via an exclusive private seaplane to famous destinations in Argentina, including San Raphael, Cafayate, Esteros del Iberá and Patagonia.

The resort’s Experience Curator can also arrange activities for guests upon request including rafting, tennis, golf, cycling, yoga, horseback riding, rappelling and more.

Culinary experiences range from cooking and grilling classes of Argentine favourites to guided wine tours and tastings, wine blending and more.

Additional facilities at the resort include a restaurant, a lounge bar, a heated swimming pool, a shop selling local artisanal products and a wine tasting room.
