All-villa Relais & Chateaux property on a private reserve in the Chilean wilderness, with private hot tubs and jaw-dropping views
Coming to Awasi is a commitment—not only is there a three-night minimum stay, but you’ll also need to be fully committed to going without good WiFi to upload your stunning photos on an hourly basis. Instagram likes will have to wait until you get back, but it’s worth it. These 12 villas, made from local lenga wood and scattered far enough apart that you’ll feel like you’re alone in nature, are exquisitely comfortable on the inside, with spacious living areas adorned with sheepskin rugs, but the scenery here steals the show every time. Patagonia’s snow-capped Torres del Paine mountains just beyond, the trees bending in the breeze, the guanaco (similar to llama) grazing in the distance—this is one of the most beautiful places on earth. There are plenty of excursions available (see below) and you’ll return from a day of trekking in time for a gourmet dinner, a few glasses of Chilean wine, and a dip in the outdoor hot tub under the stars.
In the Area
Part of Awasi’s attraction is its isolation. Villas are widely spaced, there are no other resorts or hotels in sight, and it’s on a private reserve, so the only people you’ll see are other guests and the hotel staff. While you could easily while away a week lounging around the hotel enjoying the hot tub and exclaiming about the scenery, it’s more tempting to get out and explore the incredible natural beauty that surrounds you; plus, you’ll probably see some spectacular South American wildlife. Awasi arranges 4×4 excursions, hiking trips, horseback riding, mountain biking and late-night stargazing expeditions, but you’re free to do as much—or as little—as you like.
How to Get There
We have just returned from a 2 week trip to Patagonia, 5 nights of which were at Awasi; we had hemmed and hawed over this versus other options, but ultimately chose it because of the personal guide for each villa. Turned out to be far better than we expected: immaculate villa with stunning views, an amazing guide (Diego) who took us to so many places outside the main drags--most days we saw less than 5 other hikers. One of the benefits of Awasi is that it's right outside the park, so we watched weather sitting over the Torres, and had sun and clear skies at Awasi. They (especially Marina and Diego in the restaurant) were super attentive to my gluten-free needs, and one of the highlights were the incredible packed lunches, complete with warm soup. The staff could not have been more accommodating, but what really makes it shine is the attention to detail every single one of them shared: from the guides to the front desk, everyone seemed to love their jobs. Thank you, Awasi!!
We chose Awasi because it provides a very personal and customized tour of the area. You are assigned a guide who picks you up at the airport, guides you during your stay and drops you off at the end of your stay. We met with our guide, Cote, upon arrival at Awasi and, together, created an itinerary for the next 3 days that was designed around our preferences and needs. Our tours were perfect and we thoroughly enjoyed everything we did.
Cote was an excellent guide. I can only assume that Awasi only hires the best. She was knowledgable, friendly and took excellent care of us.
We had villa #2. It was lovely, huge, privately located at the end of the road with a view that could kill of the Torres del Paine! ! It had an outdoor hot tub. It was truly one of the nicest accommodations we have ever stayed in.
The food and service were on caliber with the price. It is expensive, but you most certainly get what you pay for!
My husband and I are retired and travel extensively. We would highly recommend Awasi.
After visiting Awasi Atacama earlier this year we decided to make the long trek to Awasi Patagonia. This property was a repeat of a world class experience.
The secluded location of the property has THE most spectacular location and view.....the villas and lodge itself a perfect compliment to Patagonia. The food like Atacama again varied, quality and presented as you might find in a Top 50 restaurant....the chef accommodated our every request.
The staff and service impeccable....anticipating your every need from drinks to hot tub preparation (heated by wood). Our guide Chris was experienced, knowledgeable, and truly enhanced our experience-whether it was encouraging our group to summit a difficult hike or taking us to the most secluded vistas that our well traveled group have ever seen he was the best.
Awasi Patagonia (and Awasi Atacama) are special places.....if you are looking for a superlative bespoke adventure....just do it!
This is the first time I stay at Awasi and I believe I made the correct decision. Staffs are nice, homemade food are tasty (especially I like their bread). Nothing is better than I can have a nice meal after the whole day hike in Patagonia.
The room is very comfortable and I felt very relax there. I am so lucky that the weather was very good while I stay at Awasi, therefore it makes me more happy.
Really appreciated their service and thanks for all staffs at Awasi Patagonia.
I love to travel and have been very fortunate to visit many beautiful places around the globe as well as stay at wonderful properties. As such, I had high expectations of Awasi Patagonia and every single expectation was exceeded! First, the location itself is stunningly beautiful; the Torres are simply breathtaking. Second, Awasi Patagonia is absolutely first class from the main lodge to the villas. The view from the villa where I stayed was so gorgeous that I could have spent the entire day gazing out of the window. And, all of the furniture is extremely comfortable making the villa feel like home. What made this my favorite property in the world (so far!)- the service. The service is absolutely impeccable from the time that you are greeted by the GM, to the time that you depart. I almost felt like the employees could read my mind; they knew what I wanted before I did, and they provided it to me! EVERYONE working at Awasi is absolutely wonderful!
I also loved having my own guide, Tanya, as she was wonderful in tailoring our days to suit my physical needs and desire for photography. Every day was absolutely delightful! I rarely return to the same place twice, but I look forward to going back to Awasi Patagonia as soon as possible!
