The spirit of Tierra Atacama Hotel and Spa
Built on the site of an ancient cattle coral, on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama, the Tierra Atacama Boutique Hotel and Spa is the perfect gateway to explore the iconic attractions of this breathtaking region. The luxurious architecture and interiors of the hotel have been designed by some of Chile’s leading creatives, ensuring that many guest delight experiences can be found at every turn. Expect tranquil secluded nooks, a welcoming terrace with a fire pit, for those enchanting evenings spent under a blanket of stars, handmade local furniture and textiles, a sparkling swimming pool and incredible views of the Licancabur Volcano throughout the hotel.
Guests can retreat to the serene and romantic atmosphere of the Oriente Rooms, where sliding glass doors lead onto a private terrace and an ensuite bathroom boasts both indoor and al fresco showers. Tierra Atacama Boutique Hotel and Spa centres its philosophy on an “adventure spa” concept. Here guests can embark on exceptional excursions to the Altiplanic Lagoons, Salar de Tara, Moon Valley, Puritama Hot Springs, Machuca, the Tatio Geysers and the Atacama Salt Flat, before unwinding with a soul-soothing treatment at the hotel’s first-class Uma Spa.
What we love about Tierra Atacama Hotel and Spa
- In centuries past, the inhabitants of San Pedro de Atacama lived in small communities made up of extended families, these were known as “Ayllus”. Communities shared the precious resources of the oasis, built important canals to distribute the water and also organised a way of working which used the available manpower to benefit the community as a whole. The land of Tierra Atacama is part of the Ayllú de Yaye.
- You will fall in love with exceptional views of the volcano from every corner of the hotel. We suggest you grab a glass of delicious Chilean wine and retreat to the terrace to view the sun turn a deep red as it sets over the mountains.
- The grounds of Tierra Atacama were designed by a renowned Chilean landscape artist, Teresa Moller. She preserved original ancient algarrobo and chañar trees on the site, enhanced the very old irrigation canals and renovated the adobe walls which had been abandoned. Students at the local “liceo” (high school) participate in work experience schemes in the extensive gardens, where fruit, vegetables and herbs are grown to supply the hotel’s restaurant.
- The hotel endeavours to be as sustainable wherever possible. 50% of the hotel’s power is produced by an innovative solar power system.
