YOUR OWN OASIS IN THE DESERT, WITH GUIDES, AN INCREDIBLE POOL, GOURMET MEALS… AND NICE THREAD COUNT
You may have seen it blow up in a James Bond movie — the recent good one, with Daniel Craig — but it is still there. The two Chilean sister hotels of Tierra Hotels are one of the best experiences I’ve had in my life. They’re expensive, but worth every penny. Everything is included: room, breakfast, lunch, dinner, booze, and the best part — guides. When you add it all up, and being in one of the most remote and foreboding places on the planet, it actually is a great value…an experience that you’ll remember for the rest of your life.
Set just the right amount outside of the little desert oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama, the Tierra nestles nicely into the surrounding desert landscape. Everything is done just right.
And the best part — I didn’t have to figure out a single thing. I can’t imagine doing this area without this ideal setup. The wasted time alone would have killed my whole experience. The places they take you don’t have any road signs, and often you’re the only ones there. Between the two Tierras, by far, the best hotel experiences I’ve ever had.
