“This tiny hotel is a cosy and secluded haven in a historic setting and has been designed to fit harmoniously into the local culture and environment. Expect comfortable and authentic rooms with excellent amenities, very attentive service, and outstanding food. We like the communal courtyard and the pool – which is suited more to dips than laps – offers welcome respite from the heat.”
Surrounded by lush gardens, Awasi Atacama is an oasis amid the immense Atacama Desert, the most arid place on Earth. Located in the historical town of San Pedro de Atacama, this intimate resort blends into the landscape and offers guests a range of bespoke private experiences.
Set within an ancient adobe wall, there are ten private cottages, each with their own solarium, patio, and indoor and outdoor showers. The spacious round and rectangular structures feature king-sized or twin beds, elegant writing tables, comfortable reading nooks, and alpaca blankets. They are also family friendly.
The open-air restaurant serves Chilean and international dishes, infused with unique flavours and complemented by Chilean wines. Guests can book cookery lessons with the chef.
Each suite has its own 4WD and private guide. Explore the Atacama Desert, visit archaeological sites, float in a salt lake, bathe in hot springs, visit local villages, and enjoy a variety of outdoor activities.
