amazing awasi atacama
This is the finest lodging experience we have ever had. The level of service and attention to detail is absolutely phenomenal. My entire family could not have imagined a better travel experience anywhere, anytime. From the moment you arrive ( via the Awasi shuttle), you are treated as if you are the only people alive. Your food/beverage preferences are noted, any special requests are honored at all times and the food and restaurant service is Michelin quality. The excursions are magical, and the guiding is tops. We had a family member who desired equestrian excursions. She was accommodated with 2 of the best "rides" she has ever had, in the middle of the Mars and Moon Valleys. Everything we had was personalized. No other place we have ever stayed at was truly able to do this to the degree that the Awasi did. We have been fortunate to have stayed at some wonderful, highly rated Relais and Chateaux facilities in the past. This topped them all. If you want the trip of a lifetime, in the place of a lifetime, Awasi Atacama is it.
Highlight of our trip
Our stay at the Awasi Atacama was the highlight of our 35 days in South America. The hotel is quiet, comfortable, private and provides excellent service. The food was beyond our expectations, as it was not only delicious, but creative and beautifully presented. The staff were, without exception, warm and helpful. Most of all, we appreciated the individualized tours that were tailored to my interest in photography. Our guide, Coti, and driver, Ariel, were delightful. We stayed for four nights but I could have stayed longer!
Came Back For More!
I was a returned guest, and Awasi still found its way to surprise me. No matter how impossible my requests were, Awasi made them happen. The services were impeccable. They even packed me snacks for the road when I checked out at 3 in the morning. How thoughtful! My guide Cristobal is the best! He made everything more fun! I will come back for more.
Like nowhere else in the world!
The hotel is perfection - fitting right into the atmosphere of the Atacama Desert. The staff couldn't be more dedicated to fulfilling their guests every need or request including special dietary needs, scheduling and requests to shift around schedules. Any request was granted with that same response: "With Pleasure!". The guides are local and best in class!
Place to stay for individually tailored tours
This is a top quality establishment with very attentive service. The style of the hotel is in keeping with the area with its Adobe style. Some might find this a little rustic and if I was being a bit picky the dinning area was a bit simple. The level of service is excellent and attentive throughout, all staff are very helpful, friendly and help make it a relaxing and enjoyable place to stay. There are no room make up trolley's to be seen (all done when you are out on tours). We enjoyed pre-dinner drinks round the fire pit and the various bar tenders took delight in making up your favourite cocktail. The big selling point was the individual and personal tours and with them being tailor made to suit your interests. Following a chat on what we liked to do and what the options were, our guide for throughout our stay helped us design various trips to fill our 3 days here . This included a late afternoon hike in the Moon Valley and Kari Canyon just after we arrived. We stayed in a Round Room which is well designed and spacious, both the bedroom and the bathroom. The beds were comfortable and we slept very peacefully. The food was also good (but don't expect Michelin star quality) and one evening they did a BBQ which has to be one of the best I have had, with all the meats cooked to perfection. Location wise it is just a 5 minute walk into the centre of San Pedro but there is not that much there. This just added to the reasons for chilling in the oasis the hotel is. It is not the cheapest option, however, the whole stay was so enjoyable that I did not question the price we paid. If we ever come back to Atacama I would not hesitate to book here again.
