I learned about Awasi on the internet, Tripadvisor and other sites. At first, it sounded expensive, but I was attracted to the all inclusive concept and, also, having an exclusive car and guide seemed comfortable. The surprise here was good: I expected less. The rooms are comfortable, with better wifi than those I found on a recent trip to Europe.... More

I've just spent 10 days at AWASI. Traveling alone, I have been extremely sensitive to the kindness, efficiency and professionalism of all of AWASI staff. Most people stay for only a few days, but this is a mistake, there is so much to do in Atacama! My guide Mabel was a fantastic travel companion, we had a lot of fun... More

My husband and I came to Awasi Atacama looking for the experience that we had read about in so many reviews....and it was even more awesome than we had imagined. Everything about this place was perfect- the friendliness of the staff, the food, the excursions, the hotel and most of all- our guide, Mabel. Just when you think things can't... More

My wife and I spent a long weekend at the Awasi in the Atacama desert in northern chile. We had a great stay at the hotel. Everything was perfect, from a refreshing drink upon our arrival, to the wonderful meals and service, but especially the tours to the different desert sites in the Atacama. The room was adobe, and an... More

Hello Marc, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful memories from your trip to Awasi Atacama.

Not much to add to all the other comments. When I stayed at the Awasi (probaby the best hotel I've ever been to) I understood the full extent of the spanish term 'anticiparse a los deseos del cliente'. It's as if they're inside your head and know what you're going to ask for, five minutes before you actually do. Never... More

Accommodations: We loved our Rondavel-style room, especially the outdoor shower (plus indoor shower). Sheets were top quality and we slept very well. The humidifier in the room was a stroke of brilliance, as the air is dry at Awasi's location! The masseuses were a special relaxation treat. Excursions: Every outing we took was first rate, and we filled up 6... More

The Atacama desert and the Awasi are "one of a kind" experiences that can't be beat. The Awasi staff were exceptional and treated us more like friends and family than customers. The activities, guest rooms, common spaces, dining room, etc. were all five star. The desert is "other worldly" and sights were sufficiently varied that we were always engaged and... More

We were a family party of four - two parents, two mid-teen daughters - and visited Awasi Atacama in April 2014, directly from Sydney. We were very excited about visiting Chile, the Atacama and Awasi, all for the first time. In summary, Awasi Atacama did not disappoint on any front. Our accommodation was excellent - two lovely large adjacent rooms... More
