Hotel AWA

Contemporary luxury at the gateway to Patagonia

Wake up surrounded by national parks and volcanoes on the banks of Lake Llanquihue

Constructed over three years using reinforced concrete, the structure of this hotel incorporates contemporary concepts and techniques with the local identity and culture, while still respecting the surrounding environment. The aim was to enhance nature rather than compete with it, and there is a strong focus on sustainability and energy efficiency.

Inside you’ll discover local materials like flagstone, volcanic rock, and exposed indigenous wood all adding to the warm and inviting atmosphere of the hotel. 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. Cuisine showcases local traditions and the finest regional ingredients, some of them sourced from the hotel’s own organic garden.

The aromas of wood and sweet citrus in the spa provide the ultimate relaxation experience combined with unique treatments designed to help balance the body, mind and soul. Other facilities include a heated pool, sauna, steam room and hydro-massage pool.

Places to combine Hotel AWA with

Atacama Desert

Nayara Alto Atacama
Almost imperceptible from its backdrop of baked red rock, emerging as a perfectly placed traditional adobe settlement, it takes an even closer look to discover that this is, in fact, the very conscientiously designed and luxuriously authentic Nayara Alto Atacama. Its beauty is matched by its sustainable ideals, with the resort dedicated to integrating into the environment without causing harm to the immediate landscapes or ecosystems. In the shadow of the Cordillera de la Sal and with the San Pedro River coursing by its enviably remote and magical position in the Atacama desert means it is well placed to explore the surrounding natural sights of deep, sweeping valleys and canyons, kaleidoscope skies, serene lagoons, ancient ruins and tempestuous geysers. Yet the location is only part of the hotel’s unique allure; its design both in and out stylishly embraces the aesthetic of the Altiplano and Atacama. Varying textures in the form of colourful earth-tone tiles, Brea lamps, cave paintings, local iconography, sculptures, and coarse Aguayo tapestries and Amerindian textiles, blend to create an inviting, warm and intimate atmosphere to the contrasting wilderness outside. Each comfortable room features its own terrace and is equipped with many modern appliances and luxuries. What’s more the hotel’s activities and expeditions are expertly planned and personalised to you, with private guiding available. The staff will do their utmost to look after you and there are many facilities to enjoy at the hotel, such as yoga, spa treatments, hot springs, or just sitting under the patio awnings gazing at the spectacle in front of you.
