As a guide and leading photographic expeditions for more than 15 years in Patagonia, I have been fortunate to know all the Torres del Paine National Park hotels. Awasi was the only one that was left!!! More than staying in a Hotel is the overall experience you live at it. Everything is perfect, even the most minor details. Every Chateauxs are beautiful, maintaining the essence of nature in every corner, not compromising in commodity. Food is a delicatessen, from breakfast to dinner. The personal guides are well prepared in knowledge and excellent companions to complete an overall life experience journey in the best hotel in Patagonia.
We went there in March and the trees were starting to turn their leaves, the place is in an absolutely beautiful setting halfway up Sierra Contreras, looking straight into the Torres, it's almost like a movie setting or a fairy tale location. The food was unbelievable, the staff extremely kind and was there for our every need. Excursions excelled, I have never been treated so kindly by my guides before, simply amazing! Would definitely go back there over and over again.
I had an incredible stay. Everything was perfect! The facilities are top notch ... the food is the best I have ever had. And best of all ... the team. They take care of all the details to make you feel at home. Without a doubt the best hotel in Torres del Paine.
Great atmosphere, amazing staff, enchanting design, top-notch gastronomy and breathtaking surroundings. There is nothing else we could need there, our stay was simply perfect. They do a really good job there!
We first visited Awasi Patagonia in Feb17 after which I posted a detailed TripAdvisor review of the lodge its facilities and excursions. We had always hoped to return and recreate our memorable experiences and were not to be disappointed with our 6 night stay. Lodge The villas and main lodge at Awasi have remained very much the same, all with wonderful views of the three granite peaks which give the park its name. We were fortunate in our request for lodge No.2 where we had stayed previously. On returning to our villa after dinner we would find little gifts left for us, some we have used others are constant reminders of our stay. Restaurant Dining options are always tailored to your individual dietary requirements and paired with excellent Chilean wines. This is something we do not experience every day and something Awasi made one of the highlights of our trip. New since our last visit was the taster cocktail of the day at the start of dinner-what a brilliant idea. The enthusiasm of the multinational staff is infectious and enhances meal times greatly. The menu on our last night was designed to take into account our favourite items even to the extent of having multiple dishes per course. Excursions These are designed specifically around your interests and abilities. Perhaps our main reason for returning is the use of private guides and vehicles. We met our guide Nico (who will be forever remembered) on the afternoon of our arrival. After explaining our previous experiences he designed a 5 day programme tailored around our interests in photography, wildlife and hiking. Adjustments were made on a day to day basis depending on weather conditions and our desire to see and do as much as possible. Hiking varies according to your abilities, but everyday finished leaving us with a sense of achievement. It is difficult to explain quite how completely Nico managed to fulfil are expectations. Most of the days we had decided to eat lunch away from lodge allowing us to maximise our time in the surrounding environs. Whether it was sandwiches, cold spread or cooked Nico got it right. There were many highlights during our days there in particular the magnificent puma sightings and the awe inspiring scenery of the Baguales. Marina the assistant manager was on hand daily to ensure all the elements of Awasi came together to make everything perfect. On leaving we were given multiple memorabilia of our stay. For us the combination of villas, dining experience and excursions is impossible to beat. There are so many staff who contribute to your overall daily pleasure that it would be impossible to mention them all. Suffice to say they all work to contribute to your enjoyment ceaselessly. On leaving Patagonia the Coronavirus pandemic was taking its toll around the world. We hope all the staff and their families stay safe. Hopefully Awasi Patagonia will re-open for a new season as usual.…
