This chic eco-retreat seamlessly combines outdoor adventure with indoor creature comforts at the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. Crafted from adobe, the ancient walls of this former cattle corral can still be seen upon entering the hotel. Inside, the architecture is contemporary, yet infused with Chilean flair, with furniture and accessories made from local materials.
There are three categories of accommodation available at Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa. The romantic Oriente Rooms feature canopied beds, open-air showers and private terraces with spectacular vistas of the Licancabur Volcano. Poniente Rooms have very similar amenities but are a touch more spacious, with volcano and Salt Mountain views. Oversized Family Rooms are spread out over two levels, sleeping up to six guests in three bedrooms.
The casual, relaxed common areas at Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa include various cosy terraces with firepits, a poolside lounge and shaded sun decks. There is also a fabulous day spa with an indoor heated pool and three treatment rooms. Sit down with your guide to map out your excursions each day; amongst the many options on the menu are 4WD outings to Altiplanic lagoons where flamingos are sometimes present, volcano climbs, horseback riding and stargazing.
