Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa
- Built to blend seamlessly into its surroundings as if part of the terracotta-coloured hills that rise behind it
The lodge's location is just three kilometres from town, tucked away in a valley of serene beauty, sweeping views, peaceful tranquillity, and expansive outdoor lounge spaces make the Alto Atacama a destination unto itself. Environmental sustainability and strong connection with the local culture, including its 'Andescape' decorative landscaping, gourmet cuisine using local ingredients and recipes, indigenous guides, and even a stable of llamas and alpacas; have set this hotel aside.
