OVERVIEW \ LUXURY ECO-FRIENDLY SUITES STARTING AT $179
Just steps away from the pristine beaches, the 11 contemporary, rustic-chic suites are strategically placed so that each terrace becomes a front row seat to the awe-inspiring migration of pods of southern right whales for 6 months of the year. When the whales aren’t breaching and raising their young in the bay, Ocean Patagonia's views transition to family beach time and water sports adventure. The Peninsula Valdés reserve is also home to other world-famous marine life including orcas, southern elephant seals, southern sea lions, dolphins and magellanic penguins. Like a home away from home, the suites offer a fully-equipped kitchenette and fresh baked bread every morning to enjoy on your deck with your coffee, if you can pull yourself away from their top-of-the-line beds with premium linens.
There are 11 luxury condo residences, including a large Penthouse Suite, each with stunning vistas of the ocean. Offering a contemporary, comfortable rustic-chic style, Océano Patagonia makes use of recycled wood in all of its handmade furnishings, and throughout its stunning lobby.
Additional amenities include: wifi, kitchenette, tv, 24 hr concierge, underground secure parking, on-site grocery store
Océano Patagonia adopted a LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) approach out of respect for the UNESCO World Heritage site designation of Peninsula Valdés. From the materials used in construction to the systems that support day-to-day operations, including a geo-thermal system that reduces draw on the electrical grid by 95% for air conditioning, heating and hot water, there is peace of mind that Océano Patagonia and their guests leave a minimal footprint in this delicate ecosystem.
