Awasi Atacama is the most luxurious and intimate property in the Atacama Desert and a firm favorite. Awasi is situated inside a historic wall, which for years housed shepherds and herders. It is just a stone’s throw from the center of the town of San Pedro de Atacama and you easily can visit the church, the museum, local stores and mingle with residents. Inside Awasi Atacama’s walls there are only eight rooms built of stone, adobe and wood, with thatched roofs. Each is large and comfortable and designed for relaxation and privacy. Both the food and service are excellent, as is the level of English among the staff.
While Awasi Atacama is the most expensive property in the Atacama you get a lot for your money. Activities are fully inclusive and private which is not true of most other properties in the Atacama. Excellent guides and private activities at Awasi mean that each day can be perfectly tailored to your interests. It also makes Awasi Atacama great for couples, families with older kids and groups of friends. For single travelers or other travelers who want shared excursions and for families with kids younger than 8, we would recommend a property such as Explora Atacama, Tierra Atacama or Alto Atacama instead.
