“Unique and special place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We absolutely loved our stay at Remota. The staff was so wonderful and caring - we really got to know them on our 4-day trip. The guides were all wonderful and we had an amazing time. We especially loved our off-the-beaten-path hikes with Rafael (both inside the Torres del Paine Park and outside). The food was amazing and we loved every meal. We took advantage of the spa services and helped ourselves to the complimentary champagne while using the hot tub. We know it gets compared to Explora, which we have never stayed at, but we have to say we thought that for the value this place was truly amazing! Oh, and as far as the window between the bathroom and the room, we had no problem with it. In fact, it was great to have a wonderful view from the bathroom!

A gorgeous place with surprisingly cosy rooms and a unique indigenous-inspired design. Great saltwater pool and outdoor jacuzzi, and a sweet rain shower. Only drawback was the window between the bathroom and beds. The restaurant, however, was fantastic.

An award-winning architectural masterpiece, Remota emulates the raw intensity of the Patagonian landscape and culture. Jaw-dropping, artistic, and dramatically beautiful!
Every meal was fresh, local and orgasmic!
The staff were all professional, knowledgeable, incredibly relaxed and friendly and quite frankly, a whole lotta fun.
Excursions were tailored to fit and each outing was a challenging, memorable adventure of varied landscapes and mind-boggling vistas with only the magnificence of nature in uninterrupted splendor.
That, and the yummiest picnics ever!
5-7 nights at Remota is truly an unparalleled experience.

we recently spent 8 nights at Remota exploring Chilean Patagonia. Remota was designed by a well known architect (who also, i believe, designed Explora Patagonia???) and was modeled after an "estancia" so the architecture is really interesting. overall, we really enjoyed our stay and the staff became like family. 8 nights was perhaps a bit too long, we think 5, maybe 6 would be better.
the pluses:
-first and foremost, definitely the staff! on the whole a great group of young, really fun and caring people. special thanks to the kitchen staff (esp Mickey - who makes a mean Caiprinha - and Stefi) who took good care of me when i got sick! and to our number 1 guide, pedro who was so much fun!
-the location to town - walkable if you want, or remota can usually give you a lift into the town
-the location in general, well place to explore all around, including, but not limited to Torres del Paine
-the food - a nice choice each day for lunch and dinner. desserts especially yummy!
-the views - WOW!
-the guides - we had 4 whilst there and all were great. Pedro was who we had for most of the time and he was really awesome: enthusiastic, excellent english (and always trying to improve it!) and a very contagious laugh!
-the drivers - especially Carlos!
-the pool and hot tub - both really nice tho hot tub could be a teeny bit hotter!
-the rooms - definitely large enough and comfortable enough!

the negatives:
-the wine list. it was ok, but not enough selections and not as high quality as we think it should have been. we kept comparing to Awasi in the Atacama Desert which was also high end all inclusive resort and they had a much better and more comprehensive house wine choice.
-a 1 1/2 hour drive to Torres del Paine - but we specifically chose Remota over Explora b/c we wanted to be able to explore more than just Torres.
-the tipping policy - we would prefer to tip ALL staff (except guides) via a general tipping fund. as well, since you are not guaranteed the same guide, especially during high season, if you do have more than 1 guide it makes it hard to tip. Remota advises you to tip 1) your guide/s, 2) the kitchen staff and 3) the remainder of the staff.

Room Tip: the rooms are in 2 wings, the far one of which will be closed off during the low season when occupan...

We arrived at Remota and were quite surprised about the design.It looked more like an institution than a luxury hotel! However,we were in for a BIG surprise.Internally it was wonderfully designed in a very modern way,with very comfortable rooms.We had the best guide we have ever had in any of our travels.Her name is Claudia.She is a clever and very knowledgeable lady,and she accompanied us on all of our trips,which were all included in the price,as was all of the wonderful food and beverages.She encouraged us to go horse riding, and we hadn't been riding for a very long time, but it was so exhilarating.We were able to go into the Torres Del Paine National Park which had been affected by the fire in December.In fact we were able to do or go wherever we wanted,so could not have wished for a better place to stay.All the staff were very friendly indeed.We would not hesitate to recommend Remota to anyone who would like to see and experience Patagonia at it's best!

A recent stay at this wonderful hotel in Peurto Natales, Chile lived up to all our expectations. From the meals to the excursions everything was top notch. At night we planned our next days trips with knowledgeable guides who knew their stuff. The recent fire in Torres del Paine should not discourage anyone from visiting this corner of the globe. In addition to visiting the park there were numerous other excursions to provided by the Remota to pique a wide range of diverse interests.

Room Tip: .All rooms were great one side looked back at the town and the other out of town.

...so Remota can be an excellent hotel.

cons: we never saw the manager. We only saw the assistant manager when we
arrived (just showed us our room, had to find pool...on our own) and when we
left.
At the reception the employees' English was either poor or non existant.
One morning I left the key in my room. At the reception I was told I had to wait 30 minutes. Fortunately my guide was here. He called someone, found a second key and in five minutes I was back in my room
The lighting above the bathroom sink is very poor and the soap is tiny.
Breakfast is supposed to be served one hour before you depart for your excursion. If you leave around 9:30 it is too late.

Pro: We had the same guide, Pedro, during our five days stay. The excursions
(three hikes, one day tour of Torres del Paine, a boat tour) were well organized
and the explanations interesting. We had two very good picnic lunches.
Miguel, the restaurant manager took good care of us. He explained all the options of food and drinks. Meals were good.
Nice location and view from our bedroom.
Liked the architecture of the building. Very original!
