Naghuilan is a peaceful riverside hotel with a Germanic touch with a summer pool and a decking terrace by the water.
Hotel Naguilan occupies a modern building with a German-style facade on the tranquil banks of the river Valdivia, about a kilometre from the centre of the picturesque town. It makes much of its location, with decking right out on the river frontage where you can relax in a lounger on a summer's day. The bright guest rooms have simple classic furnishings while some of them have a pleasant terrace and lovely river views.
Gleaming polished wood features throughout much of the property, especially in the restaurant, which has huge picture windows offering river views and you may also eat out on the decking in good weather. There’s a covered semi-al-fresco rooftop terrace and a seasonal outdoor pool in the grounds.
What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
Highlights: Valparaiso was stunning and Vina Santa Cruz a pleasant, relaxing surprise.MS, Shaftesbury
Highlights: "Watching the Milky Way in Elquis Valley."MA, Lancaster
Most memorable experience: "So much but probably Torres del Paine, breathtakingly beautiful and not crowded although it was the busiest part of the year. Also the friendliness of the people, and lack of hassle everywhere- the only place where there was a bit was in the fish market in Santiago, but even there it was very low key and the people were not at all pushy."MT, Henley-on-Thames
Most memorable experiences: The Atacama Desert. An impressive place with friendly people. The Ahlarkapin Observatory trip was outstanding and a real highlight.PM, Redditch
Highlight?: Touring Easter Island, it was a unique experience, one that is very different to many resort islands that one can visit worldwide.DM, Newcastle upon tyne
We really enjoyed Easter Island but the Atacama was the most memorable part!ME, Caernarfon
Highlight: "Easter Island for it's uniqueness and remoteness. Excellent wines and food in Mendoza and Casablanca Valley in Chile. The Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires was spectacular. The friendliness of people in Colonia."JR, Grimsby
Highlights: The Explora hotel experience and the Perito Moreno glacierBT, Surbiton
Chile was AMAZING!!! We loved the country, the scenery and all the people we met. Glad we had warm clothes for the cruise or we would have come unstuck in Atacama, especially when going to the geysers as it was minus ten Celcius. As we approached the cruise time we wondered if we'd cope with the Zodiacs, but everyone was so helpful and safety conscious. The all-time highlight of so many on our holiday was standing in silence at the Pia Glacier. Our favourite guide was Cyril in Chiloe. He became a great friend and we had some lovely times together.RW, Paphos
From the point of view of JLA's organisation of our trip, the most memorable feature was the quality of the many small hotels we stayed in and the unforgettable views we so often had from our rooms. From the point of view of the trip itself, the most memorable places were 6 days of Torres del Paine in glorious sunshine and the indescribably wild and beautiful Southern Ocean.KB, Esher
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
Most Memorable Moment: "Too many to mention!Perhaps Champions parade in Rio - front row seats - fabulous! May be Torres del Paine - fabulous hotel Tierra Patagonia- outstanding scenery. Memorable moment -perhaps driving around Lake Llanquihue gradually seeing the mist clear to beautiful clear blue skies and lake and seeing The Osorno Volcano appear with low cloud drifting across its centre just as we across a very pretty lakeside café with no one there and being able to sit in the warm sunshine quite alone and enjoy the most spectacular view."JM, Wantage
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
The excursions in Torres de Paine were exceptional.AD, Cambridge
Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM, Trowbridge
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
The whole experience of Atacama and Torres del Paine was amazing. In between Puerto Varas provided a welcome and relaxing contrast. The introductory tours of Santiago and Valparaiso worked very well and the guides were great... but experience tame compared to the other three destinations! Matetic was a fun last day/night.KH, London
Long way to go but thoroughly enjoyed just concentrating on one country i.e. Chile which our destinations covered in detail from top to toe and made us feel that we had really experienced life in Chile.CF, Worthing
Most Memorable Moment?: The stunning beauty of Torres del Paine ; we were very lucky with the weather in Patagonia Our estancia brief visit, en route, was also very nice.RL, Solihull
Highlights?: The time in Torres del Paine, both Patagonia Camp and the treks through the stunning scenery.AR, Reading
Chile is a very safe, friendly and beautiful country.CP, Budleigh Salterton
Numerous memories but seeing a puma emerge from bushes 10 paces or fewer away from us when returning from Mirador las Torres. It totally ignored us but gave us some shaky photos.EG, Hereford
Highlights: WE have many good memories but we would pick out the guided walk to Laguna de los Tres at Fitzroy and the day to the French Valley at Patagonia Camp and Patagonia Camp in general.SC, Cheltenham
Most Memorable Moment?: For me, Torres del Paine as it appeared and disappeared through the clouds. The Explora hotel is in a fantastic setting and the views of the mountains are stunning. For my wife, she loved the Atacama and the Moon Valley in particular. Walking through the valley when there were just the three of us was really memorable.JM, Hatfield
Patagonia, the scenery and wildlife, getting up close to a glacier, Easter Island fulfilling a childhood dream and much more, the perfect volcano, Osorno, the geology and flamingoes of the Atacama. Santiago and Buenos Aires both quite different but equally fascinating.EL, London
Highlight?: The Grey GlacierJC, Ipswich
The Alto Plano of Bolivia was striking. Torres del Paine national park too was memorable as was Perito Moreno glacier.GOR,
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
