You are at 2800 m and prepare yourself to climb far more to cross Bolivia. This is the ideal place to spend a certain amount of time -a month? why not- to prepare your body to the tough conditions of Bolivia and take a deep breath before diving (climbing?) in Bolivia. Perfect environment, perfect place and perfect wine. You are...

Awash Atacama is gorgeous on its website and even better in reality! What an amazing combination of rustic and luxurious. We simply loved our five-day stay in October. The open air layout was lovely. There was a sense of privacy with the ten houses tucked away behind behind natural walls of wood and fiber, plus a pleasant sense of community...

I traveled to Chile with my two daughters, spending time first in San Piedmont de Atacama, then in Patagonia, both with Awasi, and a few night in Santiago. My experience planning this trip was exceptional, thanks to Elaine Roman, the Awasi Personal Reservations Executive. She was patient, professional and thorough. I leaned on her when my daughter's luggage was lost...

Dear Mrs. E, We are so happy to hear from you again. The entire team sends you their regards as we definitely work non-stop to ensure that we are an oasis within this millennial desert but to be one of our guests’ “…adventure” is quite the treat.

The Awasi Atacama was a lovely hotel--10 guest rooms in a desert setting. The 55 staff were nothing short of exceptional. In fact, it was with some sadness that we left these folks who felt like family: Barbara, Cristian, Carola, Brian, Carlos, Cristobal, and Felipe (wine) and cute Claudio who served everything "with love." Their attentiveness to every request was...

If you decide to travel to the Atacama Desert, which is the driest place in the world, you might expect to have to put up with rustic accommodations and marginal food. Not so with Awasi, an oasis of serenity, beauty, wonderfully comfortable accommodations, unusually fine cuisine, and absolutely sterling service. We found our large circular room, circular bathroom, circular shower,...

“We stayed in both a suite and a round room. While the round room was smaller we thought it was very nice and certainly spacious enough.”

“Book the round rooms. The traditional architecture makes you feel like you're in the desert and adds to the charm. We upgraded to a room with a bathtub, which is probably not necessary but nice after a long hike.”
