Situated in a private reserve next to neighboring Torres del Paine National Park, Awasi Patagonia follows in the footsteps of its sister property in the Atacama Desert as a small, intimate property (also Relais & Chateaux) focused on top-notch excursions, food, and service.
Sporting incredible views of the Torres del Paine peaks and Sarmiento Lake, the individual cabanas meld into the landscape, protected from the strong Patagonian winds by the native Lenga forest. Surrounded by indigenous fauna, there are often sightings of guanacos, ñandús (rheas), foxes, condors and, occasionally, pumas.
The vibe of Awasi is more on par with the luxurious African Safaris due to the customized, private excursions and attention to detail. And why not? Patagonia is every bit as wild and enchanting.
