Awasi Patagonia is a luxurious lodge overlooking Torres del Paine National Park offering exclusivity and private guided explorations.
This luxurious, state-of-the-art Relais & Chateau-listed lodge is on a private reserve overlooking Torres del Paine National Park where you’ll encounter the primeval landscapes of Chilean Patagonia: sun-spangled blue and green lakes, glacier-jacketed mountains, wind-twisted trees and yawning expanses of open grasslands, all visited by hardy wildlife. The property is listed in the prestigious Relais & Chateaux portfolio.
The property’s simple, contemporary design was nonetheless inspired by traditional Patagonian shelters and ranching outposts, with many features created from local wood. Inside, you’ll find warm, earthy colours and fabrics and high-end facilities creating a really cosy place in which to relax after a day out in the wild. You stay in one of a dozen sumptuous free-standing villas from which you set out to explore the wilderness on foot, by bike, on horseback or on foot, cared for by watchful guides.
There’s nothing plain about the food: the top-quality cuisine is sophisticated and beautifully presented. Service all round is highly individual and exclusive – with the help of the obliging staff you’ll plan your experiences according to your own tastes and preferences. Each villa has its own guide and 4WD vehicle, so it really is up to you.
What our clients say
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
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
Most memorable experiences: "First sight of San Pedro. Hiring our own car and being alone with the flamingos on the salt lagoons. The Milky Way in the Atacama night sky. Chairlift through the mist on Osorno Volcano. Mountain and glacier views in Patagonia. Pisco sour with everything. The Chilean people - always ready to smile."DA, Northallerton
The whole experience of Atacama and Torres del Paine was amazing. In between Puerto Varas provided a welcome and relaxing contrast. The introductory tours of Santiago and Valparaiso worked very well and the guides were great... but experience tame compared to the other three destinations! Matetic was a fun last day/night.KH, London
Chile is a very safe, friendly and beautiful country.CP, Budleigh Salterton
Impossible to select one part - the whole experience was stunning and allowed us to enjoy the variety and beauty of Chile.KD, Dartford
