An inspired and innovative property with high quality facilities where you are encouraged to feel part of the desert environment but from a vantage point of comfort and stye.

Smart, casual, earthy, rustic, simple and luxurious at the same time. The innovative Alto Atacama is far from just accommodation.  Here, you will feel enveloped by the desert landscape within and beyond the walls of the property which is constructed with materials hewn from the immediate environment and reflects its natural tawny colours.  

The spacious rooms and suites, cooled by terracotta tiled floors and decorated in muted colours enhanced with local crafts open out onto the gardens with views to the rust-hued cordillera beyond.  Many of the public areas are open to the sky: it very seldom rains here and the night time star-scape in unpolluted skies is magical; you can gaze at it from a comfy sofa warmed by an open fire. The luxury aspect is defined with refined cuisine, several outdoor swimming pools and a spa with Finnish sauna and Turkish bath, and the hotel has its own telescope. If you can tear yourself away from the top quality facilities you can borrow a bike to explore the immediate area.

What our clients say

97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.

“Alto Atacama was fantastic a real treat and rest towards the end of our holiday. We cycled to the salty lagoons where we could float in the saline solution. What they didn’t warn us was that the lagoon water was freezing cold.”
