Travelers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. It was created by the Purcell family, long time owners and operators of hotels, famous in Chile for the excellent food and warm hospitality. Tierra Atacama provides guest experiences that combine outdoor adventure and sports with indoor comforts, hospitality and excellent service. Tierra Atacama’s architecture, interior design and gardens were designed by some of Chile’s leading creative talent. Our objectives were to be as authentic as possible, using furniture and accessories handmade with local materials, while also creating a place that allows guests to relax, spoil themselves and enjoy the good-life in this magical part of the earth. Our ambiance is casual and friendly; we want our guests to be comfortable in our common areas just as if they were in their own homes. Enjoy one of the welcoming private corners of the hotel such as a seat by one of the terrace fire pits, lounge next to the pool or relax on one of the shady outdoor decks. When night falls, take in the brilliant stars, bask in the peace and wonder that is the Atacama Desert.

We went as a family around the holidays. The hotel was great all around,
starting with an efficient airport transfer, a greeting upon arrival with a welcome drink and a meeting with a guide who discussed our desired excursions.

Rooms were fabulously appointed with lovely decor

What a terrific experience... Wonderful rooms, exceptional food, very well organized and executed tours and excursions, great service. The Tierra chain is truly the best...

The additional outdoor shower was a very pleasant plus (and can be very romantic...)!

We are staying at the hotel for 3 nights in mid December What weather and temperatures can we expect and what clothing do we need for our excursions? Do we our own backpacks or water bottles? What is the tipping policy? Thanks
Dear Quickrick, Thanks for your contact through Trip Advisor! Given the range of temperatures and landscapes here in the Atacama Desert, we recommend dressing in layers, with a warm jacket or fleece to hand for the cooler moments during the day. During the day, you may expect 32°C and at night, around 16°C Take a look at our suggested packing list to help you prepare for your trip: Walking/hiking shoes Swimsuit, warm weather clothing, sun cream, sun hat and sunglasses Warm jacket, trousers, sweater, fleece, windbreaker, gloves and hat Binoculars for wildlife-watching and camera equipment for capturing your surroundings Day-pack for excursions into the Atacama There isn’t a dress code at the hotel, though a smart/casual approach for dinner would not be out of place. **water bottles will be provided to you by the hotel. While gratuities are not obligatory, please note that it is customary in Chile to leave a tip when you receive a high quality service. We normally suggest between USD $50-$100 per person per night, but the amount is completely under the discretion of the guest in accordance to the service they received. We will be delighted to welcome you! Warm regards, Cecilia - Guest Service

Hello, from my point of view I'd prefer to take the bed-and-breakfast option and pay for any half day tours that we book while we are there. Also want to do the stargazing. is it possible to do all those things separately and pay separately? Thanks a lot best regards Stuart
Dear Stuart, Thank you so much for contacting us through Trip Advisor! We do offer limited bed & breakfast programs during our high season, because of the high demand of All Inclusive programs. However, please feel free to reach out to our Reservations Department at our website TIERRAHOTELS COM and we will be more than happy to guide you and give you the required information and rates. We will be delighted to welcome you at Tierra Atacama! Warm regards, Cecilia - Guest Service

Hi Cecilia, We would like to come and stay December 8 – 12. We probably won't be doing many of the excursions perhaps 1/2 day here or there during the stay but mostly would like to do stargazing? So I'm not sure that the all-inclusive option is good for us and wonder how much would the individual outings be and could you send a sample a la carte menu? Also how much do you charge for the transfers to and from Calama Airport. so how about stargazing? that is our main interest. Thanks a lot best Stuart
Dear Stuart J.: Thanks for your contact! It is possible to do everything you ask for in your above request, nevertheless, it is important that you contact our Reservations Depatment, so that we can make a booking and note down everything in your file, so that the hotel staff is aware of these requirements. reservas at tierrahotels . com Our Reservations team will also be able to provide rates for transfers and excursions, in case there is availability for a bed & Breakfast program (our hotel has just 32 rooms, and we get booked very rapidly during the high season). We very much look forward to welcoming you at Tierra Atacama! Warm regards, Cecilia - Guest Service

Are the meals served from a menu or are meals a buffet?
Dear NRBJR: Thank you very much for reaching out to us through Trip Advisor! We are pleased to let you know that the breakfast is more of a buffet, while the lunch and dinner at the hotel are from a menu. Normally there are two options for starter, main dish and dessert. Should you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us directly through our website or through TripAdvisor. Hopefully we will have the pleasure of welcoming you at Tierra Atacama! Warm regards, Cecilia - Guest Service
