Awasi is situated inside an ancient site surrounded by a historic wall, which for years housed shepherds and herders. Its privileged location just a stone’s throw from the center of town makes it possible to enjoy “town life”. We invite you to visit the church, the museum, the fair, the picturesque local stores and get to know the people.

In the vastness of the driest desert on earth, a dramatic nature of exotic, empowering beauty produces landscapes both varied and startling.

In the basin of one of its rivers nestles San Pedro de Atacama, a mute witness to the harsheness of time and passing of ancient cultures.

Opening in 2006, the Awasi Hotel designed unique, harmonious spaces for relaxation and complete rest. The ample spaces and different open-aired living rooms let guests enjoy the hotel at ease. Thatched roofs shade the hotel in the warm daylight while tenuous candle lighting at night makes it possible to admire the unequalled beauty of the Atacama sky. Exclusive Pricing

To ensure privacy and comfort for guests, there are only eight cottages that enjoy generous spaces, private patios, reading sofas, and indoor and outdoor showers.

The Awasi prepares special outings customized for the most adventurous, for the faithful hiker, and for those who just want to bask in the endless number of shapes, volcanoes, dry salt lakes, ponds and waters emerging in the midst of the desert.

From the home-cooked delicacies that awaken its guests, it was no surprise in 2007 the Awasi made the Travel & Leisure “It List”, and in 2008 won the Best Boutique Hotel award from the Latin American Travel Association (LATA).

All excursions are operated by Awasi and are designed depending on the passengers’ interests and tastes.

 

We design tailor-made outings. At Awasi, excursions are private, exclusive, and are programmed according to your preferences and pace. Your private guide will help you to plan your trips and will accompany you during your stay. You can choose full- or half-day trips.

 

We offer easy strolls or intense treks for the more adventurous, horse-back riding, bicycle rides, visits to archaeological sites, visits to the salt flats, Altiplano lagoons or villages hidden among the deep valleys. You can get up at dawn to go and see the geysers and relax in the thermal pools. Bird watching or an evening astronomic tour with local guides are some of the experiences you can organize during your stay at Awasi.
