Atacama Desert, Chile

Tierra Atacama

Wake up in the desert

Escape to a luxurious oasis in the Atacama Desert

Nestled in the northern desert of Chile, the Tierra Atacama encapsulates exquisite design and authentic experiences. The hotel has been designed to be casually elegant in a neo-minimal style, with rooms intricately decked out with local, carefully sourced, hand-made textiles to add an authentic desert feel.

Within the guest rooms you’ll find touches of local culture everywhere, from handwoven throws to cowhide rugs and llama figures carved from the volcanic rock of nearby Toconao. Rooms range from the Oriente rooms, which feature private terraces and volcanic views, to the apartments. These can accommodate up to six people and are spread over two floors.  All rooms look out over the Andes mountain range and nearby volcanoes, with views of the desert available from dusk until dawn.

For dining, you can enjoy a blend of the rich flavours of Chilean cuisine and local produce from the Atacama Desert in a restaurant inspired by the desert surroundings. Whether indulging in traditional Chilean specialities or sipping on world-class wines at the bar, you’ll be enveloped in an atmosphere of simple luxury.

There are a plethora of activities to embark on during your stay at the Tierra Atacama as well. Feast your eyes on the Tatio Geysers, one of the world’s most impressive geothermal sites, uncover the bewildering sights of the Salar de Atacama on a captivating excursion to Chaxa Lagoon, or you can even unearth ancient petroglyphs and admire a kaleidoscope of color at Rainbow Valley.

When you’re not exploring the hotel’s surroundings, Tierra Atacama will offer you the opportunity to rejuvenate yourself within its spa. Soak in the al fresco hot tub, enjoy a spa circuit as you drift between the indoor pool and steam room, or dive into the outdoor pool. The spa’s treatments also incorporate natural ingredients from the region, such as sheep’s milk, honey, and clay. If you prefer yoga to relax your muscles, there is an area located on a shaded platform within the gardens.

Places to combine Tierra Atacama with

Wine Region

Vik Chile
The extraordinary sophistication and contemporary chic of the Vik Chile is quite simply unparalleled in Chile’s wine region. Fresh from an extensive refurbishment, this 22-room (with seven Puro Vik glass pods) avant garde luxury boutique hotel is set within the 4,400-hectare Millahue Valley and Vik vineyard, just two hours south of Santiago in the Colchagua Valley area. Each suite is individually themed and decorated, featuring floor-to-ceiling windows which allow guests to take in the majestic views of the region. A newer addition to the hotel, guests can now choose to stay in one of the separate Puro Vik glass pods, providing an incredible vantage point for overlooking the valley. The lodge is decorated in keeping with the vineyard’s holistic and ecological principles and it’s almost as if the exterior’s inconspicuous minimalism was intended to touch the hillside on which it perches. This spectacular sense of floating is further emphasised by seamless glass windows-for-walls in the rooms. Yet the insightful use of dark heavy woods, rough natural materials, functional furniture and a minimal elegance also makes the lodge feel contrastingly very solid, grounded and stylishly real. The lodge enjoys uninterrupted views of the vineyards and lake and there is a cosy sitting area with a fireplace, patios with sofas, and a well-equipped and elegant dining room where excellent traditional Chilean cuisine is served. Plenty of activities and expeditions can be arranged to suit guests according to their time and preferences, especially with immediate if not exclusive access to the vineyard and winery.
