Travel

The Faena, more so than any other hotel in the city, has its own very distinct look. Designed by Philippe Starck this property is a design-enthusiasts dream with its towering stained glass entryway, etched crystal mirrors, and oddball wall hangings. Using primarily red, white, and black each space oozes drama and borderline kitsch—white leather furniture, red velvet drapes, palatial beds made up with crisp linens and embroidered red throws. The rooftop pool is urban in feel, fittingly with red loungers and umbrellas. Despite the limited palette used, each room has its own personality—the bar is dark, moody, and clubby. As an added bonus, there’s great tango in the subterranean bar El Cabaret—inspired by the tango clubs of the twenties—complete with red velvet everything. Revelry aside, the Faena has an incredible spa and immersive wellness program with crystal and pranic healing on offer alongside a full hammam and beauty lounge.
