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
I can honestly say that I don’t have a single complaint about this hotel. Every single part of my family’s stay here, from the food to the amazing staff was perfect. From the moment we arrived here, the manager greeted us personally and made sure we felt great about our stay here and our rooms. The food was excellent; using mostly local produce the chefs created amazing dishes I never would have eaten at home. Now for the excursions: for almost every excursion we were given the same guide, Nacho, who was absolutely delightful. He was so kind and helpful and knew so much about the landscape and nature of Patagonia. Every excursion we went on, whether it was a horseback ride or hike, was wonderful and gorgeous. I would definitely return here in an instant and I was so amazed by the way that the whole staff genuinely seemed to care about each and every person staying here.
Stunning facilities complemented by outstanding service. One of my top hotels in the World - up with Four Seasons etc.
but with lots of interesting local twists and a genuinely friendly staff.
Its a long drive to get there from Punta Arenas - but worth the journey. Just be sure to download your google maps ahead of time.
Hotel has excellent spa, pool, outdoor hot tub.
Rooms are top quality and really suited to the atmosphere.
The guides and expert staff know their stuff.
Food is very good - with good choices the "menu if the day"
Range of wines and other alcohol is great.
Even the satellite wifi was pretty fast.
As this hotel was so perfect, it was hard to fault - the only thing I found was that the butter supplied at mealtimes was served as 2 hemispheres. It arrived at about 5C from teh fridge, so your butter knife slipped on the surface unless you waited about 2 minutes for teh butter so slightly soften. Not a big thing at all!
There aren't really any words for Torres Del Paine and, in fact, all Patagonia.
This is pure nature... and lord, how we need to make sure we save this soon....
Tierra Patagonia is the best kind of place to stay. The hotel is merely a lookout to nature. Nothing interrupts.
The people who run this place are then, themselves, exceptional.
And by that I mean in love with the place, smart, kind, strong, good....
I don't know, I want to live here really.
No pretension, all passion for the place... nothing else you could wish for
Amazing. Thank you Tierra Patagonia team. You are quite inspiring xxx
