Luxury in the Long Country Chile in comfort & style

CHILE is fast becoming one of South America’s most popular and fashionable destinations, and with good reason. At over 2500 miles long, it has a huge diversity of landscapes and experiences to offer; from trekking in the awe-inspiring mountains of Torres del Paine National Park in southern Patagonia, to 4x4 tours in the spectacular Atacama Desert in the North, to wining & dining in the famous Central Valley vineyards. Thanks to a new generation of luxury hotels, you can experience Chile’s rugged, remote landscapes in total comfort.

Awasi Patagonia consists of twelve villas each with spectacular mountain views. Guests are provided with an exclusive guide and a 4×4 vehicle to enable you to explore this spectacular area based on your own interests. The highlight is the huge granite pillars of the Torres del Paine that rise upwards from the surrounding mountains.

Its sister property Awasi Atacama is a luxurious boutique hotel in the oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama, it has just 8 spacious cottages, each with private patios, solariums, outdoor showers, beautiful wooden floors, fine linen sheets and traditional alpaca blankets. The hotel was built using local materials and has a lovely bar and restaurant area, comfortably furnished with huge sofas. Each room is assigned a private guide and a comfortable and modern 4WD vehicle to embark on unforgettable excursions.
