Reviewed June 24, 2013

Beautiful and cozy rooms like casitas, every detail was taken care of, a local gift I found in my room every night. Staff always with a smiley face and making you feel at home, service was impecable. Definitely the best food experience in Atacama, using local product in a feast of Altiplano flavors pairing with amazing South American wines. Private excursions with knowledgeable guides who would even play my favorite music on their ipads along the way to add a new "soundtrack" to my traveling, and flexibility to stop in every breathtaking spot to get the best picture or just admire mother nature's piece of art in earth. Simply, heaven!

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for the great comments!

We are just so glad that you enjoyed your time with us as much as we enjoyed hosting you at our oasis in the desert. We aim to ensure that all of our guests feel at home and it seems that we succeeded with you.

From what we have read (and also heard from your guide), you took some great shots at the desert…maybe, you can share with the rest of us? It is always so nice to see the angles that each individual captures of this massive desert.

We hope to welcome you again in a near future.

Warmest Regards,

The Awasi Team

We stayed at this terrific property with our 19 year old twins and it was a wonderful family vacation. Of course the Aticama is stunning - spectacular landscape edged by the snowcapped Andes which made for terrific excursions: Moon Valley, hiking the the cactus canyon, biking to the salt lakes, the geysers/natural hot springs and sand boarding were all highlights and there is no better way to do it than with Awasi. Our guides Mabel and Pierre were both knowledgeable and helpful - finding the perfect private spot to maximize the experience of each place. Returning to the hotel each day was a true oasis - the rooms are beautiful with a stylish local feel, great amenities, excellent food and most importantly the staff all continue with thoughtful personal touches.

Dear Guest,

Great to hear such a wonderful comment! Being described as a “terrific property” sure does feel amazing, we must say.

As terrific as you feel we are, we sure think that it is all because of the terrific guests that we are able to host. We have definitely lucked out with great folks that come by our oasis and make our job so much easier. It truly is like welcoming home old friends from the past and it really did show when we had you and your family at our place. Mabel and Pierre send their best to you and your family.

We will be here awaiting for your return with a tall glass of our signature Rica Rica Lemonade to welcome you all.

Best Regards,

The Awasi Team

We went to Awasi with our two teenage sons to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Awasi and they exceeded our already high expectations. We were particularly grateful for their ability to offer a more "exciting" trip for our teenage sons whilst my wife and I could have less demanding excursions. Whilst at the same time it still felt like a family holiday.

In respect of the accommodation we loved the traditional design of the Hotel and the overall quality of the accommodation was excellent. The common areas of the hotel were great as well, it was peaceful allowing you to relax after a the day's excursion and we loved the open fires in the evening.

The hotel was able to offer tailored excursions for the different needs of the family and it was great having our own guide and driver and not having to adapt to somebody else's rhythm. We particularly enjoyed the star gazing and the trip to the Geysers, where after visiting the Geysers we took a walk on our own in a nearby valley and it felt like we had stepped into a discovery channel wildlife documentary. The excursions the hotel offered gave us the opportunity to enjoy both the landscapes of the Atacama and the flora and fauna whilst at the same time allowing us to have some fun with the horse riding, cycling and for the kids the sand boarding.

The restaurant focused on the local cuisine and all our meals were excellent we were very impressed with the service level, friendliness and attention to detail of the staff even especially adding bacon to one of the dishes for my sons because they had noted that this was one of their favourites. and making sure they had a hot chocolate available for them when we arrived back from an excursion.

On the day of our wedding anniversary the hotel arranged a picnic for us at one of the salt lakes which was something special, sitting next to a beautiful lake with nobody else around.

Overall I couldn't recommend this hotel and the overall Awasi experience enough. It is expensive but you get a driver and guide to yourself and the service levels, attention to detail and concern for guest welfare throughout the hotel is second to none.

Dear Charlie,

Thank you so much for taking the time to allow us into your own experience with us.

First and foremost, again, we congratulate you and your wife on your 20th Wedding Anniversary and thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your celebration. We sure hope that you enjoyed the picnic we planned out for you so you may enjoy each other’s company as well as the stunning views offered.

We are definitely loving the pictures you took while with us and if you have more, please feel free to share them. It is always such a fun time to see those special moments you had with us.

Please send our best to your kids and now that we are opening up Awasi Patagonia (Nov. 2013), maybe you can all come down and enjoy more of what we have to offer.

Warmest Regards,

Awasi Team

I loved my stay at Awasi. From the moment I arrived at Calama, my guide Harold met me and looked after me from that point on. My excursions were tailored to my exact preferences and he did a great job at finding deserted spots, or arriving before the other tour buses did. That is what sets Awasi apart - you have your own private guide throughout, and are driven in a 4-wheel drive pick up truck giving you access to parts that other vehicles wouldn´t be able to get to. The Atacama desert is just incredible and definitely has the ¨wow¨factor in terms of scenery and overall experience.
The hotel itself is lovely - small and intimate, yet plenty of outdoor areas to relax in. There is a very high staff-guest ratio so service is very personal. The rooms are also incredible spacious - the rectangular rooms are more like a small house!
Definitely a place to go if you fancy spoiling yourselves.

Dear Guest,

Thanks a lot for sharing your time with us here.

First lines: “I loved my stay at Awasi”…it cannot make us any happier, can it? Well, it sure is to begin reading a comment and seeing that phrase (pat on our backs for a good job!).

All in all it truly was a pleasure for us and your guide Harold to show you the little nooks and crannies of the desert that others are not able to experience. Exactly as you said, being able to take our guests to these special parts of the desert, is what sets us apart and we sure are glad you were able to notice that.

The Atacama sure does have its “Wow Factor” which is great to be able to see as much of it as possible. We would love to show you even more on the area and would gladly show you around – as you may have seen, this place is immense.

Warm Regards,

The Awasi Team

We had an amazing experience at Awasi. Actually "amazing" falls kind of short when it come to describing best service, best food and beverages, best accomodations and wonderful people that take care of everything for you : meals, travels, expeditions, really everything.
Definitely a place to go and to return again and again.
Special thanks to Vicky, the manager, that makes everything simple and beautiful.

Our family of two couples and 26 year old son stayed at Awasi for a week in May 2011. It is a true paradise in the desert. We could have stayed a month! From the moment we were picked up at the airport, we were treated like royalty. Even drive to the resort was accompanied with a running commentary by our wonderful guides. Our arrival was so welcoming and settling in was very easy. The room was very comfortable & well appointed. The staff were always attentive but never intrusive. Our guides were brilliant - a fountain of knowledge and they took us on as many trips as we could fit in the available hours. Our passion for photography was acknowledged and we were taken to some of the most striking scenery on the planet. Wherever we were taken we were the only folks to be seen. We cannot speak highly enough about the outings. Our family of five was split into two vehicles for extra comfort. We watched groups from other high end hotels crammed into large vehicles. We loved every moment at Awasi and the Atacama and would recommend the resort to everyone. 5 stars is not enough! Annette E

Awasi is a unique place in a very remote yet beautiful part of Chile. The hotel is like an oasis, welcoming you with wonderful service, delicious wines, and a lovely atmosphere. The attention is top-notch, with special nods to Vicky and the lovely gentleman from Croatia. You will feel like royalty here and won't believe that you are in such an extreme desert environment! My husband and I had an amazing experience here and hope that everyone is as fortunate to have the chance to visit Awasi.
