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
Our second stay at Awasi Patagonia, this time 7 nights
Once again we felt at home
Staff creates an atmosphere and service so relaxed and also so perfect. They are
aware of your needs and wishes, they interact with you, listen to you.
Very motivated, friendly and professional.
Because the location is so remote, most of the staff stay at Awasi for 11 days, so the live, talk, eat together, and that creates a band you feel as a guest.
Thats make a huge difference with Awasi Atacama where staffs goes home every evening and sees it just as a job.
Villas are great, with perfect views of the mountains, incredible clouds
Sitting area, great bed, bathroom, bath, shower.
Even when the weather is bad, you can relax in your villa en enjoy the views around.
Dinner is top, staff present every course and the sommelier helps you perfect with the wines.
Some small remarks
Breakfast is not of the same standard as lunch and dinner
Bar close to the restaurant can be disturbing
Paying for laundry in such to tp priced place ?
During you stay you have a private guide and 4wd. It is important to contact Awasi before your arrival and tell them about the trips you want to make. So they can pick the right guide for you.
Our guide was Cristobal, he was perfect. Connecting with his guest, really interested and a lot of knowledge.
Also Franco was great.
In one word, our stay was ( close to ) perfection !
Thank you Awasi Patagonia
Awasi Patagonia delivers excellent food and outstanding service in an amazing and remote location. This trip had been on our bucket list for several years, and sometimes a long period of expectation can lead to disappointment, but that was definitely not the case here! From the moment we were met at the airport, we were impressed by the level of service provided. The staff are all dedicated, enthusiastic, personable, and good at their jobs. The food is fresh and delicious, and the wine pairings were both tasty and fun. Our guide, Antonio, made sure we saw everything we had indicated an interest in, and took great care of us on all of our excursions. The villa was clean and comfortable, and of course has amazing views. We spent 5 nights at Awasi Patagonia, and if we hadn't had to get back to work at the end of Spring Break, we could have happily stayed longer. Two thumbs way up for a great hotel in one of the world's most amazing locations!
when you arrive at Awasi Patagonia you are welcomed in this unique atmosphere.
the hotel is Amazing and the service is accurate and completely personalized.
the most appreciate service is the private service of excursion with professional guides
Our first stay in the Awasi Patagonia in January 2018 left such a deep impression, that we decided to return already this year in March- If there were any regrets, they resembled those from 2018 - even 7 days over there and in the care of what we begin to call our Awasi family are not enough. (Earlier this year, in January we stayed in the Atacama resort so we are fast becoming Awasi Junkies).
Everything was as wonderful as last year: Josefina the best guide ever, the food even better than in 2018, the entire team as friendly and supportive as one would wish to experience every day/everywhere. (We listened with amazement to some complaints that a Chinese noodles dish which the chef had very kindly prepared upon special request did not quite meet the highest standard of Asian cooking but, this is Patagonia and food worth of a Relais Chateaux accolade should be enjoyed and not brought low through manners).
The difference between March and January was interesting: earlier sunrises (spectacular), less wind, a bit cooler weather but less chance of rain. Also, this year we did see some pumas and missed out on an armadillo (Better then seeing another armadillo and missing out on pumas).
When do we plan to return? Most probably next year, though this time rather very early in the season to see how it all looks right after the end of winter.
Can't wait to be back!
Our stay at Awasi Patagonia can be summed up in one word - superb! This was a complete holiday experience. The scenery was breathtaking, the food was delicious, and our villa was both beautiful and comfortable. The Awasi staff (every single one of them) make this place truly special. We thank them for their attention, kindness and humour. Our personal guide, Matt, made our stay. The excursions were thoughtfully planned and expertly executed. We had so much fun! We look forward to returning some day soon.
