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
We spent 4 wonderful days in this exceptional Hotel. It was kind of a "finish" to our 3 weeks vaction in Patagonia and certainly its peak!!
The Hotel is located perfectly, facing the two hot spots of the reserve: the Torres and the Horns..
The view seen from the rooms and public areas is magnificent!!!
The stuff was friendly, efficient and professional, not to mention Nicolas- the manager, who host you very warmly. They all gave us a feeling of home.
The hotel is designed beautifully, inside and outside. The room was spacious and very comfort ; the food was delicious and elegantly served in the beautiful dinning room.The varied outdoor activities offered, were satisfying and enjoyable.
We didn't want to leave this special place !!!!
Tierra Patagonia is the ultimate in luxury in a relatively remote location in Chilean Patagonia. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff. The all inclusive is not limited to cheaper, local products like many resorts. The food is outstanding and the range of drinks on offer is excellent.
The spa and infinity pool allows hikers a chance to chill after a hard day on the trails.
I was a bit reluctant as the hotel is outside the park and requires a 30 minute drive to get in. That turned out to be a plus - the location was superb. But the accommodations and service set it apart. We had a large group (12) and the consensus was this was the among the, if not the, best overall resort experiences we have had - anywhere. The guides stood out - able to accommodate whatever people wanted to do - at any level of fitness, interest, age, etc.
We loved our 5 night stay here. First of all, the building is gorgeous and set on a lake overlooking snow covered mountains...really special. The staff went out of their way to be accommodating and attentive to our needs. We had wonderful excursions, several just my husband and me and others with no more than 4 others, often fewer. We enjoyed the mix of private tours and spending time with other well traveled people. All the guides were great...a particular shout out to Javier and Fran but all were wonderful.
The food was varied and while some dishes were better than others, overall we really enjoyed the food and felt it was of high quality...not to mention that we enjoyed the wine choices. We really enjoyed sitting outside with a drink post excursion looking at the spectacular vistas.
The only consideration is that the hotel is a bit out of the park so I might consider staying at a place within the park to reduce the time spent in a van. Again, nothing but positive comments about the hotel itself but I would have preferred less time in a van to/from the park.
All in all a great experience!
This is a truely exceptional hotel. From the moment of arrival to the farewell, you will be cocooned in perfect service from every single team member. We were welcomed personally by the general manger, Nicolas, who is clearly passionate about his hotel, and his passion is infectious as the entire team were proud of the hotel and the area in which the hotel sits.
The hotel is ideally placed to the national park to experience the utter beauty and majesty of the wilderness and see the vast array of wildlife in its natural, unspoilt habitat.
Every aspect of the stay is thought through and delivered to the highest standard. The food is very high quality, and whether it be the wonderful breakfast buffet which sets you up perfectly for the day, the three course lunch, or the three course dinner, the options are delicious, nutritious, beautifully presented and offer an amazing variety for every taste.
We loved the wines, which are included, as was the drinks list at the bar for a pre or post dinner drink.
The setting is outstanding, simply breathtaking views from every window of the hotel, which hides itself against the hillside, making the most of the views across the lake towards the Torres del Paine, an ever changing spectacular view.
Whether you are here to relax or get out and about, this hotel offers everything. We spent a little time in the spa, again making the most of the views with the infinity pool or outdoor jacuzzi. The outdoor activities are so professional and personally tailored. Never a group of more than eight people, the guides are knowledgeable and professional and pace the activity to the group they have. The organisers Kineret and Basillo are really friendly and helpful, making sure that the guests get the most out their time here.
What impressed us most was the team, from housekeeping to restaurant, from activity team to spa, without exception everyone had pride int heir work, they operated to the highest standard and always had a friendly smile and a welcome.
We absolutely loved this hotel and it was the highlight of or month long trip.
