“Awesome”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

We ended our Patagonian journey with a four night stay at Awasi Patagonia. We were welcomed by Rosario, the manager. We enjoyed her overall presence, stories and advice very much. What a beautiful place this is The location, opposite the Torrs del Paine, is just amazing. The drive form Cerro Castillo takes 40 minutes and it's about 4,5 hours driving from Punta Arenas Airport. We were staying in bungalow 2 which offered great views over the torres, wide plains where cows and horses grazed and lake Sarmiento. Awesome! The bungalows are beautiful decorated with a nice sitting area, open fire place, comfortable beds, mini bar, bathroom with bath tub, separate shower and toilet. Outside you will find a hot tub. You have to pre order the use of this hot tub as it takes about 5 hours to get it heated. The food is very good, but some dishes were again on the menu after 3 nights. The staff is still being trained in order to fullfill the requests of their demanding clients in a way the guests are accustomed to. The views from the lounges and restaurant are really breathtaking especially during dinner while the sun sets! Cristian was our guide and we enjoyed this enthusiasm and knowledge very much. We particulary liked our trekkings and the glacier tour in the Lago Grey area. We will never forget the icebergs in front of the Grey glacier. Please note that you are in a very priviliged to stay on the private estate of Estancía Tercera Barranca where Awasi is located. This also means that you have to travel a little longer in order to get to the most visited areas of the national park. To the entrance of Sarmiento gate it takes about 40 minutes via a short cut and crossing a river. You will enyou the solitude here, the feeling that you have the place to yourself and a few other priviliged guests! We enyoyed it and hope to get back one day.

Room Tip: Bungalow 2 has much privacy

Dear Guest,

I truly enjoyed reading your very thorough comments and loved the pictures. You were able to capture each element of your time at the reserve from the restaurant, the trails to the villas and even the time at the hot tub. After a long day of exploring through the park of other great places that Cristian might have taken you to, wasn’t it great to return to have it ready for you?

We are the ones that feel privileged to have been chosen by yourself and other guests to be your “home away from home” while you visit the Patagonia. We all thank you for allowing us this great opportunity.

We hope you can visit us soon…maybe sooner than later at our other property in the Atacama Desert?

Let us know whenever you are ready to enjoy the Awasi experience once again.

Best Regards,

Awasi Team

We were extremely grateful to have chosen the Awasi experience, highly recommend versus the group tour hotels in the area. Awasi excursions are personalized, private, and free of the typical tourist crowds. There is no specific time to hop on and off a bus, leave hotel, have a scheduled meal, or rush to tour a site. We were the decision makers in every way. After an exerting hike on the first day on the private reserve (not a single other tourist in sight, only a guanaco!), our guide planned a more relaxing hike the following day to allow for some rest time of our muscles.

Our guide, Louis, was fantastic in offering choices and educating us on the flora and fauna of the region. He packed everything imaginable into his backpack. No need to carry water or bring snacks or a lunch. He had it all, including beers and fresh pressed coffee/tea for our breaks!

The entire staff caters to your needs. The chef, Federico, regularly checks on your preferences. He will cook whatever your heart desires and enjoys introducing guests to the local cuisine. My husband has a food allergy and the waitstaff was mindful to inform us of ingredients that may be of concern.

We spent 5 days at the lodge, but could easily have done 7 if you're the adventurous type.

I am fortunate for this to have been my 3rd trip to Torres del Paine, such an amazing part of the world. My first trip was as a backpacker and I was able to do the W trek and the full Paine circuit camping everywhere, second trip I stayed at another lodge on the western side of the park that offered shared day excursions around the main points of the park. This third time at Awasi Patagonia was certainly the most unique and memorable so far, I feel that I got to know a much more intimate and personal side of Patagonia through the service and experience that Awasi provided.

On this trip we stayed for 4 nights and I traveled with my brother, his first time in Chile and visiting Patagonia.

I can already see this review going on and on so I’ll try to compartmentalize this in the three main areas that Awasi manages to master and blend together into a very unique experience:
The Lodge and Villas: Wow, what a location and undertaking! The lodge consists of a main communal building with bar, restaurant and so many different areas to lounge around in it seems built for a much larger capacity than what they cater to in the number of guests – just 12 individual villas spaced across their land, all connected by walking paths. The thing that always strikes me about Patagonia is the immensity of the landscape and the sky – and Awasi has maximized this view from every villa and every portion of the main lodge. The buildings are cantilevered on stilts so you feel as if you are almost floating above this immense landscape at all times – with sweeping views over Lake Sarmiento and of the Towers front and center. The villas are an absolute charm, coming in at the end of a long day and lounging in front of the wood burning stove while listening to the wind howl outside. We also utilized the wood fired hot tub nightly which was magical, but you need to make sure you give the staff enough advanced notice that you want to use it as it does take time to heat up. Having your own villa instead of a room connected by a hallway in a traditional hotel made us feel like we were actually living there during our stay and not just another hotel guest. It is a walk from the villas to the main lodge, or you can radio from your villa to the lodge to ask to be picked up by their electric golf cart, but I really liked the short walk back and forth as it reminded you of where you were. Another thing I noticed on these walks is that Awasi did an amazing job of building the most luxurious and unique property without really disturbing the landscape, rather than manicured grounds, you notice little piles of random deadfall scattered around, exactly where nature put them and it seems like the lodge was built around nature rather than the other way around. Note that there is no wifi in the villas, only in the main lodge. Some people might find that annoying, and initially I found myself feeling the same withdrawal of 24hr connectivity, but in hindsight I don’t think I would have had the type of brother to brother conversations that we had in the evening over a nice glass of scotch or have been so tuned into the views and sounds surrounding me; the crackle of the fire, the wind, the ever changing light on the towers, the whinny of a horse. Also if you are not in good shape, the walk between the villas and the main lodge could tire you out, but the staff is right there to transport you if requested. They really have made the most serene setting and minimizing the number of vehicles around the property keeps it as this very tranquil setting. As others have mentioned, the location of Awasi Patagonia is quite far from some of the “postcard” spots in the national park boundaries, but for me it was what made it so unique to be away from the masses of crowds and other tourists on the main roads in the heart of the park (more on this later). Also if you are not into spending time driving, Patagonia is probably not a destination for you, the landscape is immense and getting from one side of the park to the other will take you over an hour anyways, but a very enjoyable hour to say the least.

Excursions: The thing that 100% distinguishes Awasi Patagonia from the other lodges at Torres del Paine is that you have your own guide and 4x4 vehicle (nice new Nissan Pathfinders) during your stay so you get to do whatever excursions you want on your own time schedule, not having to compromise with other guests or be herded from place to place. This was an absolute highlight for us both to have this privacy in what we wanted to do. Our guide was awesome, Trisha, originally from Portland, Oregon but having been down in Patagonia for quite some time now and had traveled the word. So conversation was always engaging and she was uber professional but very down to earth and after two days we felt like she was our little sister or something. The excursion booklet provided before you arrive is overwhelming in choice, but once we met Trisha we just said what we liked doing and she quickly suggested excursions over our coming four days, adding that we could change it on the fly depending on how we felt and the weather (which we did and another bonus of having your own private guide and vehicle). We did two hikes within in the park boundaries: The Hike to Valle Frances and we climbed Cerro Ferrier. I had suggested we do the Valle Frances as I wanted to show it to my brother, but it turned out to be the absolute lowlight of our excursions, just so many people on the trail and packed into the catamaran across the lake, vehicle traffic jams at the ferry landing site, tons of traffic on the main park roads, yuck! Cerro Ferrier was amazing and a suggestion of Trisha’s which provided incredible views over the southern Patagonia icecap, the Grey glacier and the Paine massif. But the two best excursions we did were off the beaten path ones that Trisha had suggested and were outside the park boundaries towards where Awasi is located. One we did leaving right from the Villa and hiked up Cerro Contreras behind Awasi. Didn’t see a soul and stood on top of this amazing ridge with 360 degree views and had about a dozen Condors soaring around us! That was just the morning excursion and we had a very chilled lunch back at the lodge and a nap in our villa before going horseback riding in the evening. On the Awasi property, there is a little Gaucho shack where you saddle up and head out to ride. Our ride was short, only about an hour (don’t think my body would have taken more!) but it was the closest I’ve ever felt to have ridden right out of a movie scene. The Gaucho, Diego, was right out of central casting and we galloped across the pampas flushing wildlife out of the brush (Fox, armadillo, ostriches, guanacos, etc) all the while with this tremendous view of Torres del Paine serving as a backdrop. But the absolute highlight was our last full day going to explore an area called Sierra Baguales. A place impossible to capture in pictures or describe accurately, but just absolute wild Patagonia at its most pure and untouched. A crazy landscape that just begged to be explored from ridge to ridge and full of wildlife and fossils. We found ourselves on our hands and knees crawling around in the scree picking up 35 million year old shark teeth and passing around huge chunks of petrified logs to examine. Again, just impossible to describe the area but the absolute highlight of our time at Awasi. My brother and I summed up the experience of having a private guide and her taking us to see this other side of Patagonia and Torres del Paine as going as a tourist to visit friends living in London or New York who take you to real insider places not full of tourists and the postcard views, but exposing you to a real authentic side, the non-published insider places you would never find or explore on your own – and those places and experiences are the ones that stay with you after your visit much more than the ones where you stood and got your picture snapped in front of the postcard scenes. The food provided on excursions was excellent and with radio and satellite phone always at hand, you could see that Awasi took the safety of its guests seriously. So, if you go, be sure to ask your guide to take you to their favorite spots in the area and not just the iconic locations in the park packed with people, you will be very glad you did.

Food: What better than to come back after a day of exploring and have a 4 course dinner prepared for you by an excellent chef! I found the food at Awasi Patagonia to be excellent, very fine dining but not overly so where you are craving just a simple hamburger or something after 3 days. The food was sophisticated but not over the top, real local ingredients, and enough choice and changes each day that we never repeated the same meal twice and tried a few things whenever had had before (guanaco, hare, some local seafood, etc). I will say that the serving and kitchen staff was hit or miss at times. Sometimes the food was out in 5 minutes and at others it took a bit too long. Also the waiters sometimes forgot things like a coffee requested and needed reminding. But I understood that Awasi had only been open for like 3 months so was still working out some of their systems and the chef had just recently changed a few weeks prior to our visit. Regardless the small hiccups in the service there, the staff were all so lovely and engaging, to the point where reminding them of that coffee or beer you ordered was able to be done in a personalized and joking manner. As someone said on a previous review, you felt like the personal house guests of a very wealthy friend rather than “those at table 6 or from villa #11””. Everyone spoke good English and they even entertained our insistence at embarrassing ourselves with lame attempts at Spanish! Also to note, Awasi is all inclusive, all food, alcoholic beverages and excursions are included in the rate so it was so refreshing to not constantly be signing bills and having to think about costs, etc. As my brother kept saying as we left our villa in the morning “how nice does it feel to not have keys or a wallet in your pocket!” It was little things like that which made such a difference.

Every single morning and evening, the different heads of service circulated amongst every table in the restaurant to check in on each guest to see how things were going, this was something that all guests remarked on and was perfect. Ximena looked after the lodging, Rodrigo checked in on excursions, and the Chef himself (Federico?) took time with each table to get feedback and comments, everyone showed a lot of pride and enthusiasm in what they did and seemed to be working well as a team. Which I imagine is not the easiest of things to accomplish with a lodge that is so remote from any town. Asking around with the staff, there were interesting stories of how each of them came to work there; ranging from random encounters with friends of friends, to others who actually found their job through very targeted headhunting agencies in Santiago and Buenos Aires. So it is clear that Awasi really took a lot of time and money in seeking out the right professionals and personalities to come up with this outstanding staff.
So kudos to everyone at Awasi for showing us such an intimate and authentic side of Patagonia, writing this has brought back a flood of memories that will stay with me forever. You really exhibit an art in what you do.

Room Tip: We had Villa 11 which was great, I think they are all the same and each will have the same incredibl...

Dear Guest,

Thank you very much for your thorough and very candid essay on your time with us.

Feedback like yours is not only extremely welcome but thrilling to read and it is what helps us improve each and every day. It’s a bit more intimidating to provide a varied journey through the Patagonia to a seasoned Patagonia traveler as yourself. We certainly remember you and your brother – we only have a few months and can count the ones that have said they’ve been here before…you’re the only one that’s been here more than once. We truly appreciate the fact that you chose us for this 3rd go-around at the “end of the world”, and also to celebrate your brother’s big 4-0!

Glad that Trisha was able to take you guys to see this “hidden gem” at the Patagonia. We love it so much and think it’s such a great place to see…Sierra Baguales.
We heard that Trisha’s singing talents were also showcased during that trip (video on our facebook page!). She is definitely a great Patagonian ambassador – although, she is not originally from the Patagonia, she’s been here long enough to know the jewels that many people don’t know about.

We appreciate the honesty in regards to the restaurant: You’re right, as at the time, the new Executive Chef, Federico had arrived and we were still working out some details but since then have corrected it. You sure are an open-minded traveler! Many people that are a bit set back when trying new items such as hare but you and your brother went right to it – kudos to you!

Hope we can welcome you back to Awasi but this time at the Atacama Desert.

Warm Regards,

Awasi Team

I generally don't use capital letters and exclamation points, but this accommodation deserves them. You have to understand that this is a five star hotel set in the middle of nowhere, at almost the end of what one roadsign reads in Spanish, "Route to the end of the earth". There is no TV and internet wifi only in the main building, which means finding other interesting ways to entertain yourself in the individual villas which make up the hotel's "rooms". Each is elegantly appointed, with a real wood burning fireplace and living room, bar, easy chairs, ottoman and sofa. The king beds are extremely comfortable and the bath has a walk-in wet shower room and separate tub, with a hot tub outside (heated by wood as well). The staff will pick you up and drop you off at any time of the day or evening. The restaurant is 3 star Michelin quality, the food is original and beautifully presented. The wines, think the best outside of France.

This area of Patagonia must be one of the most beautiful places on earth, and the activities allow you to see it. You have your own personal guide for your stay, and can plan horseback riding, mountain biking, hiking at mild or extreme levels of ability or just driving in a 4WD Pathfinder around the National Park there and its surroundings. It's light until 10PM so you can be out for 14 hours at a time if you like. Lunch on your hikes, etc., is served in flower-covered meadows on linen covered portable tables and chairs with three courses and wine. The guides are DVD-drilldown knowledgeable about flora, fauna, geology, history, paleontology, etc. You will think you're at university taking a 5 star class.

The staff is accommodating and wonderful to a person. The place has been open only three months, but you can't tell, everything runs like a well-oiled machine. Don't forget, it's wilderness...there are a couple of towns and sheep shearing and gaucho bronco-busting competitions, but there's asphalt on a minority of the roads most of which are tamped down stone and pebbles.

There is a sister hotel in the north of Chile which is a Relais and Chateau. This Awasi will have the designation by the end of the year I bet. If you love the outdoors, bring your hiking boots and poles and stay at least four days and more if you can. I loved it.

Dear Guest,

THANK YOU! We normally don’t use capital letters and exclamation points either but your review truly made us use it…guess what? IT DESERVES IT!

Well, we are so glad that you found everything up to par during your stay. It really is the "Route to the end of the earth", but as long as it takes to get there, you sure know it was all worth it.
The mystique that Patagonia holds is something that words cannot express, but once there, it feels like a hundred words are running through your mind trying to take it all in.

We really wanted to also express our joy to see your vote of confidence in us having the Relais & Chateaux designation for Awasi Patagonia. We are definitely working hard and striving for both our “babies” to be a part of this fine association. We’ll keep everyone posted as soon as we have news on this.

We thank you for choosing us and for allowing us to be a part of this journey. We hope that you will also venture off to the Desert and get to know Awasi Atacama.

See you soon,

Awasi Patagonia is by far one of the most amazing places I've stayed throughout the world. The villas are modern, spacious, comfortable, private with incredible views and private hot tubs. The main house is just as inviting and beautiful with amazing views of the entire property and little nooks and spaces for private moments in a living room type atmosphere. You feel as if you're visiting the incredible lovely home of a friend vs. staying at a hotel.
The service is unmatched. Everyone was kind, accommodating and helpful without being overbearing. Specifically, Rosario, the hotel manager, was lovely. We loved visiting with her and other members of the staff.
The hotel itself is about an hour from the national park. This could be an issue if you're hoping to spend every day in the park, as the commute is a bit long to some of the further parts of the park. However, we enjoyed staying outside of the park. Inside of the park is busy with hikers/campers/tourists, and Awasi felt uniquely remote and quiet compared to the hustle of the park. There are plenty of excursions to do during your stay that are right by the hotel. The horseback riding occurs right down the road, and it included a tour of the surrounding breathtaking landscape that we had all to ourselves.
Food is really important to us, and Awasi cuisine did not disappoint! The three course meals are five star with inventive desserts and freshly baked breads. After traveling throughout smaller towns in Chile, we were so happy to have some amazing meals at Awasi.
It's a trek to get to Awasi Patagonia (fly to Punta Arenas and then a five hour drive), but it's worth the trip. We can't wait to return!

Room Tip: We stayed in Villa #3 and loved it, but I don't think you could go wrong with any villa.

Just came back from haven!!! If you look for peace, well being and confort this is the place. All staff are very responsive and kind. The manager Rosario is so lovely, always around checking if everything is in order. Our guide Patrick was so generous and patient, he leaded us to the best places to register the amazing scenario of Patagonia. Regarding the food: exceptional! All menu were delicious! The "Magalhanic Lamb" was the best ever! The whole staff are there ready to make your days as perfect as you wish, you only need to ask what you want. The "Vila's" is incredible, huge space with all you need in terms of confort and privacy. I"ll never forget the view that we had from our vila. It was something that made the difference. We loved to stay in bed staring at the most amazing view of Patagonia lakes and snowed picks contemplating the nature and the local fauna surrounding us.
Be aware that the hotel is about 1:30h of the principal interesting spots and even a half day excursion will take about 6 hours. Sometimes we preferred just to stay at the hotel relaxing and drinking Calafate Pisco... The horse hiding is a must do, the horses are so calm and the gauchos are very gentleman. In the summer the day is very large, we always had dinner with the sunlight and the weather is unpredictable, so bring warm clothes too, specially sun blockers and windshell jackets. For me the best scenario was the lake Pehoe view, where you can see the Paine Towers and the unforgeteable blue lake at your feet.
I highly recomend Awasi if you want to have the best experience in life.

Dear Mrs. Correia,

First and foremost, thank you very much for your comments, not only through our TripAdvisor page but also via email. I think that we should call you and your husband the “awesome” ones! You shared some great pictures he took of the private reserve, your villa and throughout your excursions – I am sure many more would love to see here. He is truly talented and it was great seeing how many great opportunities you had to capture the majesty that is the Chilean Patagonia.

Those towers are truly awe inspiring, aren’t they? To this day, it just does not get at all tiring to see them each and every day that we are here. What a difference it is being at the Patagonia, right?

Given, that you and your husband had already stayed at Awasi Atacama, we sure hope to be able to welcome you to our future project, Awasi Iguazu!

We stayed at Awasi Patagonia over Christmas; family of 4 with an 8 and 5 year old. We have stayed at the Awasi San Pedro and am happy to report the team in Patagonia have it working well even though they only opened in November.

Accommodation beautiful; interior design is spot on. Each cabin gets it´s own hot tub and we were lucky enough to get an afternoon with clear views to the towers while sipping wine in the hot tub. The weather is unpredictable in Patagonia and the good thing about having your own guide and car is that you can change what you are doing. We changed a couple of times and we were always accommodated. Our guide Christian was awesome! great with the kids and is from the area so knew it well. He organised the most amazing picnics with beautiful views and with no other tour groups! We did Grey Glacier and saw most of the amazing park and it´s wildlife. Awasi is located on the outskirts of the park so an extra hour or so getting to the park compared to the Explorer....
The staff are all lovely and are there to make sure your holiday is stress free. The food....wow the food was amazing...5 star all the way. Very impressed with their chef from Argentina. He also cooked off the menu for our kids a couple of times and made picnics to take if we were out all day... nothing was a problem.
What makes Awasi special is they go the extra mile for you and it really is what you want your holiday to be on your own itinerary....They are the only lodge that does this. We finished a 3 hr hike to find cake, coffee, wine etc set out beautifully in the back of our 4WD.... You think it can´t get any better and it does....
Thanks guys and keep it up!

Dear Guest,

We also loved having one of our first families try out the new Awasi Patagonia. Having been at Awasi Atacama, you had many high expectations, so you can just imagine how nervous we were to meet them. However, you and your family are such a delight – We are super happy that your husband was able to make it on your holiday trip, too!

The weather sure is unpredictable at the Patagonia, but it definitely is the charm that brings so many to experience it. Christian sends his best to you and your family and says that he cannot wait to welcome you all back again and keep on showing you even more of the area.

We all send you our warmest regards,
