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

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

Awasi was an wonderful retreat set in a spectacular landscape. Our guide Leah was incredible - so knowledgeable of the area and she customized our agenda to meet our exact requests.

Four of us spent 3 nights here while visiting the Atacama desert. The stay was one of the nicest ever. The staff was totally there for us, from reception, to the bartender, to the waitstaff, the manager and the guides. You meet with the guide and decide what you want to see. The nest morning you take off and anything... More

Great experience overall. Our guide Pablo adjusted to our taste and made sure we saw the sites when tourists were elsewhere. As for the hotel, being relais & chateaux we were expecting a lot and we weren't disappointed with delicious creative meals every night.

My wife and I had wanted to visit the Atacama Desert for some time and had always said we should stay at Awasi and so our expectations were high and we were certainly not disappointed - it all started when we met the charming Director General ( Matias ) in London last year.
