You wouldn’t think that the spectacular Patagonian region of Torres del Paine could get any better regarding luxurious design-led hotels, but it just did; with the highly and hotly anticipated sibling hotel to Awasi Atacama, and the only one in the area to do tailor-made excursions for each guest.
Twelve curious, wooden-clad, shipping crate-style ‘villas’, which were inspired by the old outpost shelters, lie scattered over the wind-protected plains of its own private reserve and facing the unfolding scenes of Lake Sarmiento and the three tower peaks. Inside these, the warming and minimal Scandinavian cabin décor nicely cushions you from the harsh scenes outside, with natural wood interiors, large inviting beds, your own living room with log fireplaces, hot tub, and with every modern amenity to hand in its 860 square feet. The master villa, which has two bedrooms, is good for families.
The dispersal of these freestanding villas actually befits the solitude of your surroundings, giving you a pleasing level of privacy but also a heightened experience of the landscape’s isolation.
The main house, just a short walk from the villas, has a dining room, terrace and living area. Awasi is renowned not only for its style, but for tailoring its tours for each individual guest and for serving delectable gourmet food (their property in the Atacama is a member of Relais & Chateaux). Guests will be able to choose whatever excursions they want to do, without having to compromise for the sake of a group.
The Awasi Patagonia is a Jacada Signature Property for excellence in personalised service and luxury. Jacada guests making new reservations here will enjoy a maté preparation class at the gaucho outpost and a maté gift set to take home.
