The spirit of Awasi Atacama
The beautiful Awasi Atacama is tucked away on a historical site surrounded by an ancient wall used by shepherds for centuries. Just a stone’s throw away from the town of San Pedro De Atacama, Awasi Atacama is the perfect base from which to explore the magical surrounds of the region. Here, just eight spacious rooms, built by local stonemasons and carpenters, provide a tranquil environment in which to unwind after a successful day of adventuring. Each room features beautiful furniture inspired by the Atacama and lovely ensuite bathrooms that open out onto a private patio with a solarium and shower.
The hotel is separated by a small street called Tocopilla, which guides guests to their rooms, as well as communal areas. These include a private restaurant, which creates mouth-watering fusions of Altiplano and international menus, an al fresco bar area where guests can take in the spectacular night sky. Unwind in the sparkling swimming pool where many languid hours can be spent enjoying the Atacama sun. Guests are provided with a dedicated, expert guide who will accompany them to the many sights and adventures in the region. Adventures include half and full-day activities such as tranquil nature walks or vigorous hikes, cultural excursions, horse riding, cycling, visits to archaeological sites, and journeys to the many breathtaking landscapes of the Atacama.
