Chile offers a stunning countryside and exceptionally nice boutique and design hotels. We were impressed. To put it mildly!

Check out what such spectacular locations as the Atacama desert or Chiloé have on offer in terms of top-notch luxury hotels. And stellar landscape, of course…

Recently we got invited to present the adventure of our last year’s trip to South America and how we hunted for a story in SWISS Airline’s board magazine. The short presentation “5 weeks in South America & the perks of being a travel blogger” gave the Zurich World Travellers Meetup an overview of the highlights we encountered.

The Atacama desert in Chile is one of the driest place on earth, covering a 1,000-kilometre strip of land on the Pacific coast, west of the Andes mountains. Here you will find vast tracts of red sand, active volcanoes, felsic lava, salt-lakes and a variety of animals and plants.

Alto Atacama Desert Lodge is situated in Northern Chile, hidden at the edge of San Pedro de Atacama’s oasis. The cubic architecture contrasts spectacularly with rugged red mountains in the background.

The rural yet stylish decor and a welcoming staff have you immediately feel at home in one of the driest deserts on this planet…

Awasi is an exclusive resort in the charming town of San Pedro de Atacama — surrounded by Chile’s vast Atacama Desert. It is a Relais & Chateaux property, boasting all of the careful detailing that comes with such a prestigious ownership. The decor is that of traditional stone, adobe and wood, carefully combined to celebrate the natural resources the region has to offer. It’s close proximity to the main village — just a few short minutes on foot — combined with pampering services that promote total relaxation, makes it an ideal oasis for comfort and convenience.

Patagonia Camp at the shores of Lake Toro is just a 15-minutes’ drive from one of the most spectacular national parks – Torres del Paine. Check out yurt style housing in Patagonia.

Design hotel Refugia opened its doors to the public in September 2012 in Southern Chile, in a very unique and mystical spot on this planet – on Chiloé Island, South America’s second largest island situated just South of Puerto Montt. The hotel is surrounded by more than 10 hectares of land where countryside, beach, green fields, forests and an inlet of the Pacific Ocean meet. A perfect oasis of tranquility and nature… Check out this architectural gem amidst Chiloé’s rounded hills!

Remota hotel is located in remote Puerto Natales, an old fishing town in Patagonia’s South situated between Punta Arenas and the Torres del Paine National Park. It serves as premier base for hiking, biking and even kayaking excursions into Patagonia’s plains. Architectonically speaking Remota offers a unique experience as it perfectly blends into the light slopes of the landscape.
