Important Bits

  • Type

    Ultra luxury boutique hotel.

  • Vibe

    Luxury meets rustic. Reminded me of a lodge you might find on a safari.

  • Location

    Awasi is hidden on the outskirts of the Chilean town San Pedro de Atacama, you wouldn’t know it’s there. Trust me, you’re not going to Awasi to visit the little town anyway.

  • Rooms

    Eight total (round, round suite, or round superior suite).

  • Music

    It’s actually pretty quiet, except for the crickets and birds chirping.

  • Year Opened

    2007

  • Designed By

    Interior Design by Paula Domínguez and Alejandra Bunster.

  • Health & Wellness

    Yes, an outdoor pool. No spa, but you can have a massage in your room.

  • Restaurant

    Yes. A delicious, magnificent five-star food experience. Not formal, just great food in a romantic and outdoorsy setting.

  • Bar

    Yes, there is a huge outdoor firepit with a full “top shelf” bar.

  • Minibar

    No mini bar, but the hotel is all-inclusive so you can drink as much water, wine and pisco sour as humanly possible. The hotel puts homemade granola bars and nut mixes in your room. They also place local artisanal items in a trunk by the base of your bed each night…could be a local RIKI spice, or a handicraft.

  • Children

    Doesn’t matter either way.

  • Price

    Very expensive luxury.
