Alto Atacama Desert Lodge has been designed to blend into its valley setting with the ochre colour of its adobe walls matching that of the surrounding hills. The architecture is partly inspired by local dwellings, and the strong link with the environment and community is evident during your stay, from the local staff and guides to the deco and artworks, and varied excursions that allow you to explore and enjoy the region.

All rooms and suites come with terraces where you can unwind and take in views of the garden and Catarpe Valley as you enjoy a refreshing drink from the minibar. There are plenty of places throughout the hotel where you can relax and socialise with other guests including outdoor seating areas by firepits and a cosy lounge complete with an open fire. The gardens, designed by a qualified botanist, include endemic plants, soil and stones carefully arranged to provide a mini portion of the desert. Several plunge pools are set within the grounds, and there's a spa where you can indulge in your choice of treatments. Meals showcase local, organic produce and are served in a variety of indoor and outdoor locations and can be accompanied by some fine Chilean wine.

An extensive range of excursions spanning adventure, culture, astronomy and cuisine enables you to make the most of your time here as you venture into the Atacama Desert with a local guide. Highlights include the strange rock formations of Moon Valley, impressive lagoons, gushing geysers and watching flamingos at the Salar de Atacama salt flats.
