Awasi Atacama

Atacama Desert, Chile


In the heart of the Atacama Desert, hidden away behind an ancient adobe wall, sits this small lodge. The breath-taking majesty of the landscape contrasted with the intimacy of Awasi creates a sanctuary of reflection. Enjoy a fulfilling action-packed day, to unwind with a swim in the pool or with a sundowner by the firepit under the magnificent Chilean sky.

With a blend of Latin American cultures, Awasi Atacama is vibrant and secluded. Tall trees give way to private patios allowing quiet moments of solace or perfect spots for gentle conversation. The ideal base for an adventure into the desert, the 12 suites are elegant and showcase the Inca heritage. Created from natural materials, the stone keeps the rooms cool, while alpaca blankets can keep you cosy on the chillier evenings. Each suite has an indoor and outdoor shower, so you can shower under the heavens.


Taste the flavours of the world’s driest desert in their punchy creative cuisine, inspired by Andean flavours, eating in the open-air restaurant, a wonderful spot for reenergising for another mind-blowing day in the desert plains. If the gastronomy truly blows you away you can learn the tricks of the trade with a personal cookery lesson with the Chef, Juan Pablo Mardones.


This carbon-neutral property protects the 340 hectares of native woodland in Iguazú and Patagonia to offset its carbon emissions. As well as this, food and produce are either home grown or locally sourced.

Why we love it

A personal guide is assigned to each suite at Awasi ready to collaborate on a perfectly unique adventure. With a 4x4 at your disposal, no terrain is too difficult to cross, giving way to boundless opportunities to explore the wonderful remoteness of this sublime environment.
