We wanted to get away from the city before lockdown began and so we chose this great place in a quick last chance calendar spot. The hotel is not big, but it’s well designed. It has direct access to the lake, a view of it and the Volcano almost from every angle. We stayed longer than planned and simply loved it. The staff is an important part of the experience: they truly make you feel at home and they care of every little detail. The room was excellent, had a great jacuzzi and an amazing view. Simply perfect!!

The hotel is in a central location for hiking and kayaking with beautiful views sitting directly on Lake Llanquihue. Although our room was on the top floor, it was at the very end and thus our view of Mount Osorno was completely blocked by trees. But we still had a spectacular view of the lake and looking down into other people's rooms so be careful if you are on a lower level that you keep your shades drawn if you don't want people to be able to see into your room. My absolute favorite thing about the hotel was the heated bathroom floors and LED lights in the jacuzzi tub. The tub was a little difficult to figure out how to fill and I had to ask for more bath salts as they weren't always automatically refilled, but I loved taking a hot colorful bath after some hard days hiking and kayaking. Although there was a fireplace in the room, which was a nice touch, we never used it since it wasn't really cold and I instead spent my free time in the tub. The room was spacious with great floor to ceiling windows for beautiful views. The stainless steel water bottles they provide with self-service water tap refills at the bar is a very nice touch.

Room Tip: take a room closer to the elevator or restaurant so as not to have an obstructed view of Osorno

AWA is nothing short of superb. The design is totally unique and so different from the other hotels in the area. The views of Volcano Osorno are simply fantastic from all around the hotel, and to wake up to that view from the bedroom is rather special. Bedrooms with open fires are incredibly spacious, and the 25m pool is a treat. What we particularly loved was the free use of the hotel’s kayaks, and swimming from the private beach. The restaurant serves inventive food, all delicious and very sensibly priced. We loved the guided hike arranged for us around Osorno, and Barbara was an exceptionally good guide. Likewise Angelica at the front desk couldn’t have been more helpful. In short, if you stay one place in Chile make it AWA!

It was a pleasure to stay at Hotel AWA where so much thought has gone into the hotel, common and dining areas, guest rooms and amenities. Wherever you venture within the hotel, there are outstanding views to Lake Llanquihue and the Osorno Volcano. Rooms are luxuriously appointed with most comfortable large beds, excellent ensuite and spacious areas to relax. Within, rooms are very quiet. Guest facilities are excellent, with areas inside and outdoors. Meals throughout our stay were outstanding, as was the efficient service from all staff. Coupled with staying here are many optional activities. These excursions are well run, personally guided and designed with guests needs in mind. Well done to all, a memorable area of Chile.

Our stay at the AWA near Puerto Montt was fantastic. A very well put together and original hotel and lovely staff. A very good restaurant and wine list. If you are visiting the lakes this is a superb hotel to make as a base.
