Atacama Desert: Awasi

Visit Us

Awasi

Combine explorations of the wild and wonderful Atacama desert with a pampered stay at the tiny, exclusive boutique hotel Awasi, conceived and built in harmony with the natural environment. This is a rare place where couples seeking peace and quiet can stay side by side with families, such is the feeling of space and privacy within the property, and the imaginative range of excursions and activities.

This gorgeous little boutique hotel takes its inspiration from traditional atacameño homes and the desert surroundings. There are just eight round, thatched cottages built from local stone, wood and adobe, softened by cosy furnishings and fabrics in a harmonious mélange of both earthy and bright colours.

The idea is to provide a very private and intimate experience for guests, with a genuine feeling of luxury. The large rooms all have a private patio, a sofa for lounging about and reading, and both indoor and outdoor showers.

The relaxation area around the small heated pool is especially attractive – it might be hard to drag yourself away to take advantage of the many excursions on offer, from visits to geysers, hot springs and shimmering salt flats to guided hikes, bike rides and horse riding. Younger family members will probably be off exploring, leaving adults with time to unwind. Programmes designed for children include cookery and craft classes, sand-boarding on the dunes and visits to cactus forests and lagoons to learn about the desert environment and spot llamas and flamingos.
