Awasi Atacama, San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
Made of stone, adobe and wood, the Awasi Hotel was once a site which for centuries was used by sheltered cattle drivers and shepherds. It is now a beautiful retreat made up of only eight cottages, each having a private patio, reading sofa, indoor and outdoor showers.
Local materials have been crafted to create a unique, harmonious space designed for relaxation and rest. Awasi prepares special outings that are customised to ensure adventure and surprise. There is a lovely little pool should you wish to spend your time at the hotel rather than exploring.

Join a shared excursion to observe the vast night skies of the Atacama Desert. The altitude of the town as well as the remote location makes this one of the best spots for astronomy, for both amateurs and experts alike.
The day begins by heading south from San Pedro de Atacama to Cejar Lagoon (the floating lagoon). This small lagoon has impressive white edges of crystallised salt and is intensely turquoise in colour, providing a home for flamingos and tagua birds.
