Hotel Awa is a pleasant hotel comprising a melange of traditional features and modern design,with a lakeshore setting in Chile's lake district. .
Perched on the shores of Lake Llanquihue a short drive from Puerto Varas in Chile’s lake district, Awa is all about the views. Its ultra-contemporary design is offset by the clever use of traditional local materials and attention to detail throughout its interior.
With large, luxurious guestrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows which bring the outside in, the waters of Lake Llanquihue and snow-capped dome of Osorno volcano are never far away. The spa comes equipped with a 25m lap pool, sauna, steam room and hot tub. There's an inviting lounge, bar and restaurant and you'll probably want to dine in, but Puerto Varas has a selection of restaurants if you plan to venture out for dinner.
