NEW YORK—Grace Hotels launched La Dolfina Grace, its second hotel and residential villas development in Argentina. Uniting the iconic La Dolfina polo and fashion brand with Grace Hotels, an international luxury hotel group, La Dolfina Grace represents a unique collaboration to create a new hotel, serviced villas, and apartments complex, comprising up to 80 keys. Combining the sporting and lifestyle choice that is La Dolfina with the elegance and simplicity that is the hallmark of Grace Hotels, La Dolfina Grace is a new concept in luxury living and hospitality.
The hotel will be built to the usual Grace standards and feature a spa and gym, gourmet restaurant, cocktail and cigar bar and outdoor pool. The announcement follows the opening of the Grace Cafayate hotel and residential villas development in Argentina’s Salta province in November.
Set to open in 2016, the hotel and villas complex will be adjacent to the La Dolfina Polo Club and will form part of the club’s exclusive 465 hectare residential estate set among woods and rivers in the town of Cañuelas, in the southern province of Buenos Aires. The estate is the vision of Adolfo Cambiaso, who is often referred to as the greatest polo player to ever play the sport.
“We are proud to be expanding our presence in South America with a brand that is a byword for polo, sporting excellence, and casual sophistication throughout the region. It is a perfect match for the values that we live by at every Grace hotel,” stated Philippe Requin, CEO of Grace Hotels.
“The lifestyle concept of La Dolfina Polo Ranch with its polo club, riding school, and tennis club is unique to the region and the addition of a world-class hotel is a natural complement to the facilities that residents and visitors on this estate can enjoy,” said Ernesto Gutierrez, board member of La Dolfina Polo Ranch.
