Alto Atacama Desert Lodge
Sweeping views, tranquility and silence - a destination like no other
Surrounded by the Cordillera de la Sal, in the shadow of the Pucara de Quitor ruins, with the San Pedro River winding its way alongside it, Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa offers one of the most breathtaking settings in the world.
Built in the style of traditional adobe, the lodge is a stunning example of innovative and sustainable architecture, blending seamlessly into the surrounding red rock hillside. There are even llamas grazing about. The understated luxury of the public spaces and the 42 rooms pay homage to the Atacama region with splashes of warm, desert colours and local textiles, crafts and lots of stone. Each of the rooms boasts private terraces with incredible views.
The amenity-heavy lodge offers six irresistible outdoor pools, a spa, yoga rooms, hot springs, a cosy common area with a fireplace, and an open-decked observatory that provides unrivalled views of the amazing night sky. There are also myriad cultural and adventure activities, all under the supervision of a team of expert local guides.
Alto Atacama is the perfect place to refuel and relax after a day of hiking or biking in this amazing desert landscape.
