Founded in the 1950s
as a seaweed settlement
by Lorenzo Soriano,
a Spanish immigrant
of the generations
running the Lodge today.
Founded in the 1950s as a seaweed settlement by Lorenzo Soriano, a Spanish immigrant and grandfather of the generations running the Lodge today, more than 400 seaweed workers and their families lived here: there was a church, a school, a police department and everything this small “town” and their inhabitants needed. Staying in Bahia Bustamante Lodge also means taking a journey to the past, to discover the amazing life of the pioneers of this truly remote place in Patagonia.
Silence here is only interrupted by gusts of wind, the singing of hundreds of species of birds and the breaking of the waves on the shore. The ocean on one side and the never- ending steppe on the other. The Argentine flag waves behind the old Bar, the oldest construction and silent witness of bygone days. Peace reigns all around. Seaweed harvesters, biologists, sheep ranchers, families, adventure lovers, artists, guests from every corner of the world, all find their place in Bahia Bustamante Lodge.
Please consider that in Bahia Bustamante Lodge we want to preserve the essence of the place and maintain a balance with nature. The old houses which used to belong to the first inhabitants were renovated to receive guests, always taking into account the austerity and simplicity which characterized lifestyle here from the beginning; thus keeping alive the spirit of those who arrived to these lands over 50 years ago.
In Bahia Bustamante Lodge, luxury is the chance to enjoy the vastness of nature which surrounds us. The aim of the experience is to connect with nature and with the authenticity of such special place and its inhabitants.
