Modern art and traditional crafts are a focal point of the decor throughout. All 16 of the spacious rooms boast large floor-to-ceiling windows with breathtaking views of Llanquihue Lake and Osorno Volcano. Food is an important part of any stay at Hotel AWA, and the chef and his team create a new menu every day featuring interesting flavours.
