awasi, atacama details


A sophisticated and authentic luxury boutique hotel with just 8 cottages for guests, built from natural materials with high thatched roofs, mimicking the neighbouring historic village.


Not far from the oasis of San Pedro de Atacama, within Chile’s most dramatic desert; surrounded by volcanoes, salt flats, ravines and lagoons.

Accommodation & Facilities

Each of the 8 cottages is made from stone, adobe and wood, with large private spaces; a reading sofa, private patio and outdoor showers. Beds are luxurious with crisp white linens; there is ample closet space and an amazing bathrooms area with walk in showers, perfect for two. Cottages are appointed with their own private guide and vehicle, so your time at the hotel can be tailored to your exact and specific interests.

The main areas sprawl throughout the hotel, so there is ample space to relax outdoors and usually in complete privacy, shaded by thatch. The bar has tall stools and a natural and authentic theme, a place where socialising is encouraged, yet the tranquillity is not broken.


Natural cuisine is served here, with fruit juices and freshly baked breads for breakfast. The dining area is very comfortable with cushioned seating and neutral colours, enhancing your culinary experience.


As you have your own guide and vehicle, your time here is tailored entirely to your needs. Explore the shapes of the desert, climb the highest mountain or just watch as the landscape changes dramatically after just a short time out. There are salt pans and volcanoes to explore, unique wildlife and flora to experience and an incredible history to discover.

Romantic Getaways

Before arrival, couples are asked to complete a questionnaire with their personal tastes and interests. This is then used to tailor your ultimate romantic experiences; candlelit dinners, private star gazing experiences with champagne or an intimate picnic in a secluded location to name a few…
