The exceptional Nayara Alto Atacama Desert Lodge and Spa blends effortlessly into the Catarpe Valley in the Salt Mountain Range, just outside of San Pedro de Atacama. Influenced by local village architecture, the designers who built this magnificent retreat are some of the finest in Chile, creating a tranquil haven in the heart of the terracotta-coloured desert. Guests have an assortment of accommodation options to choose from, each with a spectacular view, private terrace and lovely ensuite bathroom.
The hotel boasts various outdoor and indoor spaces that lend themselves perfectly towards utter relaxation. Families can enjoy a living room with a roaring fireplace, a great place to play boardgames, an outdoor sitting area dotted with small firepits, six outdoor pools and a Jacuzzi that overlooks the valley. Mouth-watering Chilean-inspired menus are on offer, created with only the freshest produce, sourced from local farmers and accompanied by the finest Chilean wines. Adventures for the family include walking or cycling excursions to nearby geysers, hot springs, volcano trails, desert canyons and ancient Inca ruins with petroglyphs.
What we love about Nayara Alto Atacama
- Tuck into locally grown socaire potatoes, native quinoa and Chanar
- The children will love exploring the gardens surrounding the hotel, designed by Veronica Poblete, a Paris-trained landscaper and ex-Harvard lecturer, who created the “Andescape” concept
- Indulge in a soul-soothing treatment at the award-winning spa or unwind with a Finnish sauna, Turkish bath or Scottish shower
