Naghuilan is a peaceful riverside hotel with a Germanic touch with a summer pool and a decking terrace by the water.
Hotel Naguilan occupies a modern building with a German-style facade on the tranquil banks of the river Valdivia, about a kilometre from the centre of the picturesque town. It makes much of its location, with decking right out on the river frontage where you can relax in a lounger on a summer's day. The bright guest rooms have simple classic furnishings while some of them have a pleasant terrace and lovely river views.
Gleaming polished wood features throughout much of the property, especially in the restaurant, which has huge picture windows offering river views and you may also eat out on the decking in good weather. There’s a covered semi-al-fresco rooftop terrace and a seasonal outdoor pool in the grounds.
What our clients say

We have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.AK, Stoke Newington
Highlights: Arrival at Tierra Patagonia hotel: and seeing two wild pumas nearby!PG, Oxford
Chile is a very safe, friendly and beautiful country.CP, Budleigh Salterton
Highlight?: Trips into parts of the Atacma Desert that were not in fact desert but little islands of habitation frequented by only a few.RP, Glasgow
Three highlights: the trip over the Andes from Santiago to Mendoza with its links to San Martin's epic journey to liberate Chile and Peru in the 19th century; the three Neruda houses in Chile; and the Museo del Barro in Asuncion (Paraguay).JRF, Cambridge
Most memorable experience: "Sailing across the Magelllan Straits and getting off on Cape Horn. This was the key reason for my trip which was motivated by a dim and distant history lesson when I was 12 years old. To think that these treacherous waters were navigated and discovered by sailors in wooden boats over 500 years ago has always been a magical thought. Doing it in the comfort of 21st century luxury was a much better option for me but to think that I have walked in the footsteps of Magellan and later Darwin is quite something else."TEB, Grays
Highlights: Visiting Patagonia and staying at the Patagonia campFT, Mansfield
Time in the Atacama - with Oscar!! Probably one of the most spectacular places we've visited as tourists and we have years of world travel experience behind us.RB, London
We have travelled a lot in our lifetime but nothing prepares you for the breadth of landscapes that you will encounter in Chile. We had three weeks there and felt we only scratched the surface.CM, Trowbridge
Highlights?: Too many to mention ! Great mix of culture, sights and experiences. Love the inclusion of a horse ride from The Singular in Patagonia.HJ,
We have wanted to visit Chile for a very long time. You arranged a very special holiday for us, which gave us a wonderful taste of this amazing country.PCA, Riding Mill
Highlight?: Easter Island and seeing the moai statues was a lifelong dream and did not disappoint. The guide was excellent a fantastic and beautiful island.LVA, Tamworth
Highlights?: Patagonia Camp and Torres del Paine National Park.CD, Shepton mallet
Our experience at Patagonia Camp was the most memorable part of the trip. Everyone at the camp really cared for the place and the experience they were providing for their clients, from the restaurant staff to the reception staff to the guides. They were all delightful to deal with and the guides in particular deserve special mention for their knowledge and commitment to the preservation of the TdP National Park and the ethos of the camp.RE, Knutsford
Most Memorable Moment: Cycling around Puerto Varas in Chile.JL, Studley
Highlight?: Patagonia campMM, Southsea

Highlight: Torres Del PaineCG, Amersham
Most Memorable Moment?: Rapa Nui - a unique environment with lots of architectural and historical interest and also comtemporary culture (Tapati festival). Very interesting.AB, Burnham-On-Crouch
I loved the desert and my husband liked Patagonia. The lunch in the Casablanca wine valley was outstanding.SD,
Highlight?: Easter Island - amazing place - very good food, hardly any tourists and extraordinary history/statues etc. We could easily have stayed an extra night there. I would strongly recommend hiring a car there. We also booked a snorkelling trip which was good.CK, Ashtead
The three major parts, Atacama, Easter Island and Patagonia were all special in different ways.BM, Macclesfield
Long way to go but thoroughly enjoyed just concentrating on one country i.e. Chile which our destinations covered in detail from top to toe and made us feel that we had really experienced life in Chile.CF, Worthing
Most Memorable Moment?: Very difficult to pick one from so many but probably the walk up to Torres Del Paine Mirador - although it was a tough day.SB, Milnthorpe
Highlights: The Explora hotel experience and the Perito Moreno glacierBT, Surbiton
So many highlights- Tatio geyser, base of Torres del Paine walk, seeing puma and Easter Island memories for lifeHM, Bristol

Overall we have had two of the most memorable weeks in one of the world’s most varied geographical environments and the friendly Chilean people. Thank you JLA.SJ, Welwyn
The visit was basically divided into three separate parts - self driving on the Carretera Austral, the ferry cruise which I arranged separately, and the visit to Tierra Patagonia. In their very different ways, all were excellent and memorable.TAK, Ilkley
