The hotel provides 42 elegant and spacious rooms featuring stylish rustic décor, king-size beds and private terraces with breathtaking views of the gardens and mountains. For those wishing to indulge, the Tilo Suites are fabulous.

The restaurant showcases the best of Chilean cuisine, prepared using fresh, organic produce and accompanied by a fabulous selection of Chilean wines.

Alto Atacama makes for an ideal base from which to explore the region and guests are encouraged to get off the beaten track, interact with the local culture and explore the desert on foot or by bike. Visit the ancient Pukara de Quitor ruins; discover geysers and hot springs; climb volcanoes; ride horses through sand dunes; or cycle through desert canyons.
