Atacama Desert: Casa Atacama

Casa Atacama

The small, sustainably run Casa Atacama distils the essence of San Pedro de Atacama into a stylish, rustic and contemporary space. Adobe walls, free-form wooden decking and beautiful wild grasses dominate the outside areas, while rooms are bright and modern with understated use of natural materials and a smattering of local textiles and art. Each has a private terrace and an indoor pebble garden.

Scenically surrounded by terracotta walls, greenery and thatch-shaded sun loungers, the pool is small but attractive, and certainly welcome on invariably hot desert days. The spa includes a hot tub, sauna and an array of treatments including massages, reflexology and Reiki, or if you prefer more active pursuits there are bikes for complimentary use.

There’s a restaurant serving an exciting menu of Andean specialities with a twist, prepared using seasonal local ingredients. Reflecting the hotel’s sustainable ethos, electricity and hot water are powered by solar panels and it has its own water treatment plant.
