Hotel Los Parrales Tarija. This resort hotel perched high on a cliff overlooking the river and countryside, offers the best views, amenities, customer service, and comfort in the region and is the only 5-star hotel in the city of Tarija. The hotel’s new manager welcomed us and the sales manager gave us a tour. Everything about this hotel exudes luxury from the lobby, to its spacious rooms, to its extraordinary spa with a striking mountain view, to the pool and gorgeous tropical gardens. Los Parrales has turned comfort into an art all the way down to the delicately accordion-folded bath tissue and it’s through these details that the hotel has earned its reputation for excellence.
The hotel, just 10 minutes from the airport or downtown, has large matrimonial, double, executive and single rooms as well as a presidential suite, all of which enjoy beautiful views of the river and valley below from private terraces.
