Hoteles mas Verdes is the national ecolabel for accommodations in Argentina. The ecolabel is established by the Association of Tourism Hotels of the Argentina Republic (AHT). The standard is recognized by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). Okay, al lot of theoretical information, but what’s really happening at the hotels certified by Hoteles Verdes?
Nothing can top waking up in the middle of the jungle: stirred by squawking parakeets, you open the shutters to find the sun burning through the dawn mist. Butterflies flit among the flowers, hummingbirds hover nearby, and the scent of dew-covered foliage and rich red earth is in the air. This is the paradise of the Puerto Bemberg Lodge. You’ll find the lodge set within 400 hectares of beautiful Atlantic rainforest just above the Parana River in Misiones, near Iguazu Falls. The Hotel originally was an old house owned by the traditional Bemberg Family, and has been completely renovated keeping in mind the original architecture. The rooms are decorated in the original Colonial style, with a combination of natural and local materials!
The Puerto Bemberg Lodge holds a true magnificent secret; the library with more than 2500 makes it a unique literary inn. Contemporary art, Latin American and European artists, local and international XX’s century literature and dozens of other subjects illustrate the library, built with the boards of the old soccer field of Newell’s (Rosario, Argentina). The living-room has large windows and a grand piano, inviting you to read a book while enjoying Guarani music concerts and observe nature’s language.
Don’t forget to go for a walk or discover the beauties from the Atlantic rainforest by bike. You’ll be surprised to see the natural waterfalls, rivers, native plants, birds and it’s a great way to learn more about the native flora and fauna of Argentina!
