Did You Know? Llao Llao Hotel and Resort

January 19, 2014
By: Five Star Alliance

Llao Llao Hotel and Resort
In 1934, the Patagonia and Andean region was completely uninhabited  territory. In that year, with the creation of the Nahuel Huapi National Park, the construction of a luxury hotel (eventually to become Llao Llao Hotel & Resort, Golf-Spa) began.

The Architect Alejandro Bustillo chose the Puerto Panuelo area for the hotel. In addition to its magnificence and beautiful scenery, the area has a port. Built with cypress logs and larch tile roofing in the Canadian style, the hotel was opened to the public on January 9, 1938. On October 26, 1939 a fire destroyed the building, but it was reopened on December 15, 1940.  The hotel closed in 1978, but was re-opened to the public in 1993 under its current name.
