OUR RECOMMENDATION

One of my favourites! The Arakur Resort and Spa is simply marvelous. It’s a hotel nestled on Cerro Alarken, offering an unparalleled view of the city of Ushuaia and the bay. The hotel is excellent for several reasons: the service is wonderful, its spa is particularly outstanding, with a fabulous heated pool and jacuzzis with incredible views. The hotel offers excellent gastronomy with typical local dishes, and the accommodation service is in line with its 5-star rating. Additionally, being located in a natural enclave, the hotel allows for various hikes from there, to delve into a beautiful mountain forest. Undoubtedly, a highly recommended hotel to enjoy Ushuaia and its surroundings.

SUSTAINABILITY

Since its inception, Arakur has reaffirmed its commitment to the environment. Its cutting-edge design, based on sustainable architecture standards, combines high technology and the use of natural resources to ensure the preservation of the natural surroundings.

The Building
An extensive copper covering acquires a green hue that blends seamlessly with the natural landscape. Its stone claddings are an example of material recovery: the same rock extracted during its construction is what reemerges in its imposing facade. Reclaimed wood from lenga and ñire trees, as well as old oak barrels, find a new home in floors, claddings, and elegant decor. Its spacious areas utilize natural lighting to ensure efficient resource use while allowing appreciation of the stunning panoramic views.

  • Public areas with low-consumption LED lighting.
  • Geothermal system for heating and outdoor radiant floor heating.
  • Free Cooling system with outdoor air for rooms.
  • Thermal insulation: Floor with ventilated air chamber, use of mineral wool, and double-glazed windows.

Through these sustainable construction actions, the hotel’s gas and electric consumption is reduced to one-third of what a traditional construction would demand.

Comfort and Consciousness

The status control of all areas and rooms is carried out through an intelligent home automation module that allows monitoring their status in real-time. Through window opening sensors and a presence detection card system, we ensure hygiene, safety, and comfort without compromising our responsibility to the environment.

  • Use of materials free of volatile compounds.
  • Wood floors and corridors with fireproof carpets.
  • Automatic renewal with outdoor air in public and service areas.
  • Individual and automatic control of temperature and light for each room.
  • Alarm clock and safe boxes in rooms free of batteries.

Where There’s Water, There’s Life

The rational use of water is a fundamental objective of our environmental program; that is why we have the duty to raise awareness through communication to our staff and guests. Bathrooms and heating systems are equipped with various elements to optimize the use of our valuable resource.

  • Sheets and towels are washed on demand.
  • Dual flush toilets of 3 and 5 liters.
  • Modulating valve for hot water radiator.
  • Bathroom faucets with aerator for consumption reduction.

Cerro Alarkén Natural Reserve

Just minutes from the city center, the Cerro Alarkén Natural Reserve is a space of over 100 hectares dedicated to nature preservation and home to various species of Fuegian flora and fauna. Foxes, black eagles, and condors are some of the inhabitants that can be found along its trails through streams and forests of lenga, ñire, and coihue trees. From the Summit, a natural panoramic viewpoint, you can appreciate unique views of the Canal and the Bay with its mountains, valleys, and glaciers.

Among its attractions is a very special area: the Turbal. These formations, originated from ancient glacial retreat lagoons, are very important for the scientific community as they preserve environmental information for thousands of years, allowing the study of temperature evolution and other environmental factors. Additionally, they perform various functions that contribute to biodiversity and climate change mitigation.

Habitat for native bird species.
Drinking water reserve, regulation of the water cycle, and carbon reserve.
Regulate runoff and prevent flooding.

From the Yámanas to the present day, exploitation of this resource has been resorted to due to its various uses in the cosmetic and energy industries. These types of actions, combined with the increase in wild livestock, have led to a reduction of this delicate biome in the region: that is why in the Reserve, we actively work for its maintenance and recovery.
