Twelve superb villas and the only hotel to offer bespoke tours to guests
- 12 freestanding villas (eleven one bedroom, one two bedroom master villa)
- Awasi Patagonia is the only property in the region to provide a 100% tailor-made experience;
- Each of the twelve villas of Awasi Patagonia will have a dedicated professional guide and 4x4 vehicle available to its guests during their stay to explore Patagonia and Torres del Paine in absolute privacy and flexibility.
You wouldn’t think that the spectacular Patagonian region of Torres del Paine could get any better regarding luxurious design-led hotels, but it has, courtesy of the exclusive 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, in keep with being a member of Relais & Chateaux. Guests can 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.
The Awasi Patagonia Conservation Project
Part of the hotel’s sales go to the Awasi Foundation which supports The Awasi Patagonia Conservation Project, which aims to create a natural corridor for wildlife. By leasing adjacent sheep farms and working together with neighbouring estancias, the project has returned 6,000 hectares (14,000 acres) of natural habitat to the native species, and now have between nine and 12 pumas inhabiting the reserve – an area that just a few years ago was devoid of wildlife. The Awasi guides help monitor the puma populations and keep hunters away, even during the off-season. Furthermore, the project is working with scientists and researchers to gather information about the behavioural patterns of these species. After just two years of active protection in the Awasi Reserve, they are already observing an increase in animal presence.
