Cumbres Puerto Varas overview

Cumbres Puerto Varas seems to tower over the shores of Lake Llanquihue from its raised position. Beyond the lake is the Osorno Volcano adding to the postcard views afforded to guests at this modern hotel.

There are 90 rooms and suites in total, divided into a variety of categories. The standard rooms have partial views of the lake, whereas the others have panoramic views, all of which can be enjoyed through the large picture windows. The rooms have been decorated in a modern, neutral palette. The use of natural wood and soft textures provides a homely feel and is typical of southern Chile. The large windows make the most of the dramatic views.

The cosy intimate feel continues into the main areas. The lounge has plenty of seating areas, comfy couches with deep cushions and a roaring fire creating the perfect relaxing ambience after a hard day of sight-seeing. Head Chef Pablo Galves presides over the kitchen. The restaurant serves an array of Chilean specialities, and international cuisine incorporating fresh local produce and seafood. After dinner, you can retire to the casual bar where you can indulge in fine Chilean wines and a variety of tasty cocktails. In case you need to burn off any calories, there is a small gym and a small indoor pool and spa.
