Stylish, rustic and contemporary hotel inspired by its surroundings and an ethos of sustainability.

The small, sustainably run Casa Atacama distils the essence of San Pedro de Atacama into a stylish, rustic and contemporary space. Adobe walls, free-form wooden decking and beautiful wild grasses dominate the outside areas, while rooms are bright and modern with understated use of natural materials and a smattering of local textiles and art. Each has a private terrace and an indoor pebble garden.

Scenically surrounded by terracotta walls, greenery and thatch-shaded sun loungers, the pool is small but attractive, and certainly welcome on invariably hot desert days. The spa includes a hot tub, sauna and an array of treatments including massages, reflexology and Reiki, or if you prefer more active pursuits there are bikes for complimentary use.

There’s a restaurant serving an exciting menu of Andean specialities with a twist, prepared using seasonal local ingredients. Reflecting the hotel’s sustainable ethos, electricity and hot water are powered by solar panels and it has its own water treatment plant.

Our Expert's Opinion

Casa Atacama blends into San Pedro superbly with it’s adobe walls and dust red colours and being sustainably run is in perfect balance with the fragile ecosystem it sits in. I loved it’s unassuming yet stylish décor and with a location in the heart of the town this is a great upper mid-range option.
