Designed by Chilean architect Cazu Zegers, the hotel on the eastern edge of Torres del Paine National Park brings the outdoors to your doorstep, and the undulating all-wood structure blends seamlessly into the rolling dales. Stunning views can be had at every turn: Whether you’re sipping a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc at the open bar or relaxing on a sheepskin-covered bench in your guestroom, Tierra Patagonia, on the cusp of slate-blue Lake Sarmiento, always offers breathtaking views of the water and the Paine Massif in the distance.
Bed and Bath
Tierra Patagonia provides everything you need to explore these wilds in comfort and style. The 40 eco-luxe rooms are built from natural materials (ahem, blonde wood as far as the eye can see) and filled with handcrafted furnishings, like local woolen blankets and antiques. But while each is done up in their own unique touches, all have spectacular views of Lake Sarmiento and the Paine Massif’s jagged peaks.
Traditional Patagonian fare and Chile’s best wines is served in the restaurants, but head to Estancia Cerro Guiddo, the hotel’s working ranch, to try the lamb slow-roasted over an open fire. Or, if you’re looking to be pampered, book a day in the large, glass-enclosed Uma Spa, which has a warm lap pool, steam rooms and relaxing treatments, such as the Tierra Patagonia’s signature honey and quartz crystal facial. Afterward, curl up in front of the cozy fire in the lounge with a book chosen from the hotel’s impressive library.
In the Area
Forget what you think you know about vultures: The sight of the Andean Condor — Chile’s national bird — riding the wind currents with its wings fully extended is a highlight of a trip to this part of the world. The Andean Condor trek ventures into the heart of Condor country traversing rock buttress for views of the birds along with the Paine Massif, Sierra Contreras, Rio De Las Chinas, Sierra Del Toro and the Sierras del Cazador. Meander along the shores of Lake Sarmiento with an experienced guide to help you identify the wildlife that hides in the thrombolites — striking sedimentary geological formations made of microorganisms — lining the lake. Local gauchos guide the Tierra Patagonia’s horseback trek, starting from the hotel’s working Estancia (Ranch) Cerro Guido. If you’re new to horses, start with the Mirador Bosquecito trip, which winds through a lenga forest towards Sierra Contreras for views of the Sierra del Toro, Lago Toro, Lago Sarmiento, Paine Massif and if the day is clear, you can even see part of the southern ice fields.
How to Get There
Wow! Wow! I struggle to find the words to adequately describe Tierra Patagonia! Perfection, paradise, raw magnificent beauty! What an unbelievable experience we had here! Totally blown away! The property, pool and rooms all look through full length windows at amazing Andes views. The sunsets were surreal! The staff has such a great energy and provide 1st class service. We loved all the choices of the guided outdoor excursions that are included in your nightly rate. Tierra takes great effort to match you up with appropriate and fun outdoor outings, from horseback, walking, kayak and car.Loved returning in afternoon to relax at the bar or restaurant to visit with guests and staff from all over the world. This is a once in a lifetime experience ! It is a must for everyone’s bucket list!! Thanks Tierra for an amazing experience!
The views were awesome! From the dining area, the bar, or even your bedroom, you are overlooking a beautiful lake in front of the Torres del Paine. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating. Kineret is there to discuss the various tour options suited to your interest and abilities. With no more than six tourist on each excursion, you receive a lot of personal attention. After the excursions, relaxing in the beautiful Jacuzzi pool, also overlooking the Torres del Paine, was heavenly. Who would highly recommend this accommodation.
We has a fantastic stay at Tierra Patagonia for 3 nights. The location and views are spectacular from the rooms and common areas. Many different activities including treks and horse riding were very accessible for our 3 children of 11, 10 and 8.
The hotel itself, under the leadership of the ever present GM Nicolas, is very well managed and he takes a direct interest in things, interacting deeply with each guest. Staff were warm and efficient with a special mention to Kineret who was wonderful and helpful in organizing our excursions. We would have loved to stay longer and hope to return again soon, if it were just a bit closer.....
The guides at Tierra Patagonia are knowledgeable of all the flora and fauna as well as the geology of the magnificent Torres del Paine national park. They are the icing on the cake of the beautiful, comfortable and magically situated hotel. Imagine waking up each morning to views of a glacier fed lake, backed by the famous towers. There is a large heated indoor pool and an outdoor hot tub, useful after a day of hiking. Our stay was too short!
Wow...! Excellent from the moment you arrive... Greeted and shown the property and your room by the manager, truly exquisite views from nearly all main windows (including the rooms), wonderful amenities, great food, great service, great place. Wish there were more in the current chain (currently Patagonia, Chiloe and Atacama, I believe).
Can't say enough positive about them!
