Opened in 2006, Awasi Atacama is located in San Pedro de Atacama, a two-hour flight from Santiago followed by a 90-minute drive. The hotel is a walled oasis in the town center with eight uniquely styled adobe rooms, and is designed to be a private and relaxing haven for guests. However, Awasi Atacama’s focus on integrating details of the surrounding culture into the property, and its central location means that guests can easily get to know the local culture, should they prefer.
Service at Awasi is highly personalized, as part of their “tailor-made” commitment to guests. Before arrival, travelers complete a questionnaire outlining their interests, physical condition, and food requirements for the staff to customize menus and trip planning appropriately. Guests are assigned a private excursion guide and 4x4 vehicle to experience the Atacama desert at their own pace. Other activities like horseback riding, astronomy tours, and archaeological site visits are also available.
On-property, guests can lounge in the pool or the sunny terrace. Awasi Atacama is a member of Relais & Châteaux, and its restaurant is led by Chef Juan Pablo Mardones, who works to add local ingredients, like chañar tree and quinoa into his dishes. After dinner, guests can enjoy Chilean wine around the hotel’s fire pit and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and starry skies.
