Luxury Travel to Santiago
Santiago, capital of Chile, sits the middle of the country and is its central hub.
The most striking feature of the city is its position on the Central Valley, with the Andes providing an amazing backdrop as they loom majestically on the horizon to the east.
Over the past decade, Santiago has undergone something of a revival in the arts and culture, with new, interesting art galleries and restaurants opening making it a destination in its own right, as opposed to a necessary stopover for exploring the rest of the country.
When to go
Santiago is great all year round, especially in the warmer months November through March
What to do
- Visit art galleries and museums
- Take a trip to some of the artisan and crafts markets
- Enjoy the city's restaurants, cafes and bars

Here are some of our travel designers' favourite options
The Singular SantiagoThe Singular Santiago is a luxury hotel in the Lastarria neighbourhood of Santiago. A sister hotel to The Singular Patagonia, The Singular Santiago is located in one of the artiest areas of the Chilean capital, Lastarria: the Museum of Fine Art, the Museum of Visual Arts, and the Gabriel Mistral Center are all within walking distance of the hotel. It’s not just the location that’s appealing: the rooftop pool provides a scenic setting in which to both cool down after a day exploring Santiago and take in the view; the spa offers post- or pre-long-haul flight massages; and the Singular Restaurant serves French dishes alongside local specialties, such as Guanaco and Penca, to keep the flavour decidedly Latin. The ninth-floor Sky Bar is the perfect place to polish off a day in Lastarria. There are 62 rooms: the Patio Rooms and the Classic Rooms overlook the Plaza Mulato Gil, and the Deluxe Balcony Rooms have views across the Parque Forestal. All rooms at The Singular benefit from stylish decor and all the mod-cons you could wish for, including wireless internet, LCD TVs, large and comfortable beds, and well-equipped, spacious marble bathrooms.
