I traveled to Chile with my two daughters, spending time first in San Piedmont de Atacama, then in Patagonia, both with Awasi, and a few night in Santiago. My experience planning this trip was exceptional, thanks to Elaine Roman, the Awasi Personal Reservations Executive. She was patient, professional and thorough. I leaned on her when my daughter's luggage was lost...

Dear Mrs. E, We are so happy to hear from you again. The entire team sends you their regards as we definitely work non-stop to ensure that we are an oasis within this millennial desert but to be one of our guests’ “…adventure” is quite the treat. Not everyone gets a chance to do these great excursions through the desert,...

The Awasi Atacama was a lovely hotel--10 guest rooms in a desert setting. The 55 staff were nothing short of exceptional. In fact, it was with some sadness that we left these folks who felt like family: Barbara, Cristian, Carola, Brian, Carlos, Cristobal, and Felipe (wine) and cute Claudio who served everything "with love." Their attentiveness to every request was...

If you decide to travel to the Atacama Desert, which is the driest place in the world, you might expect to have to put up with rustic accommodations and marginal food. Not so with Awasi, an oasis of serenity, beauty, wonderfully comfortable accommodations, unusually fine cuisine, and absolutely sterling service. We found our large circular room, circular bathroom, circular shower,...

The standard rooms were small with limited space to put clothes away and whilst all the staff were friendly and professional the layout of this small resort seemed soul less.
