Discover the hotel

Awasi Atacama is located in the town of San Pedro de Atacama, a few blocks from the historical center, the market, the old church and the Square. This proximity allows our guests to get to know the authentic "town life", while enjoying their intimacy in our hotel.
Awasi is the only hotel in South America that offers a service that is 100% tailor-made for each guest. With a private guide and a 4x4 vehicle per room, the hotel adapts the excursions to guest´s preferences and interests of the culture and nature of Atacama Dessert.
The cuisine in Awasi stands out for its flavors and textures, featuring regional staples and adapted to the needs of each guest, with the culinary excellence that characterizes Awasi as a member of Relais & Chateaux.
For the dedication of an entire team committed to catering guests preferences, Awasi focuses on making dreams come true for travelers who come to the Atacama Desert attracted by its flora, fauna and landscapes.

Our commitments

While the Atacama Desert seems an unlikely to be a source of biodiversity and inspiring new recipes, Awasi Atacama’s chef Juan Pablo Mardones has found it to be exactly that. Since the hotel opened, he has invested considerable time in studying and searching out local ingredients.

Some, like quinoa and papa morada- a gourmet variety of blue-violet potato - are widely known. But many are native to the region and only grow wild; these include edible algarrobo pods from the carob tree, rosa de año - a flower that blossoms in the desert after the annual rainy season, and one of the chef’s staples: the sweet fruit of the Chilean chañar tree. The chañar is a small, thorny tree that grows exclusively in very dry areas, pervading local culture and folklore as a result of its medicinal properties. The chef, however, uses its principally to delight his guests’ taste buds, deriving an intense syrup, with woody tones, from the tree. This serves as a versatile aromatic base, known as “Arrope de chañar”, which features strongly in Awasi Atacama’s sweet dishes. Moreover, preserving the three corners of South America where the Awasi lodges are located is of utmost importance to the Awasi team. They protect and conserve over 340 hectares (840 acres) of virgin forest and native woodland in Iguazu and Patagonia. These forest areas absorb over 10,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide per year - a total that is greater than the amount of emissions generated by the three lodges, as well as the airline and transfer travel undertaken by employees and guests. This means Awasi is officially carbon neutral.
