We stayed 5 nights at awasi on our honeymoon, hoping for a trip of a lifetime and the awasi leg of our stay more than met and exceeded every expectation.
Everything was without a fault from pickup to service throughout our stay to the excursions and the scenic views.
The staff are always very personable and went the extra mile to catering to our needs to trying to consider what we may need. On the first day when we arrived, Rodrigo the excursion manager noticed we didn't have a backpack for hiking and didn't hesitate to lend his to us for our whole stay, subsequently we were also offered walking sticks for our hikes. Before we left we even had a quick tour with Federico the head chef through the kitchen. Secondly the location of the lodge, whilst it was outside of the national park, hardly suffered as a result as it was on a hillside with scenic views of the paine massif, instead it contributed to a sense of adventure and exclusivity as everyday you had to drive into the park (across a river!) and after a day of hiking, driving back to the lodge and seeing the warm orange lights in the distance and knowing hot and wonderful food was awaiting as well, was akin to returning home. Last but not least, having a private guide and own 4wd in retrospect now was the highlight of our stay and again the personable service of awasi staff shone through. We could tailor our program to our likes and the weather and our stamina so we had a couple of days of long day treks but also mixed it up with a day of relaxed walks nearer to the lodge. Juan Pablo JP our guide was AMAZING, looking out for us on difficult trek (tripping!) points, carrying our lunch everyday (a la personal butler cum fellow trekking companion with daily banter) and bringing us to some really special scenic spots, it was like having a local friend bringing you to their personal favourite spots and feeling like you were a local yourself.
Our trip may have ended but looking at our pictures of Patagonia, (subsequently we were in el calafate and drove through Argentinian Patagonia) our stay in awasi is already in our hearts as what defined our Patagonian experience, well worth every cent. We look forward to visiting atacama next and visiting Awasi there no doubt and not anywhere else.
