Alto Atacama

Atacama

Alto Atacama has been built from the very soil of Atacama and the native wood of Coligue which covers the roofs, creating beautiful displays of light and shadow.  Alto Atacama has state of the art facilities; a complete Spa, Yoga fields, hot springs, wooden decks with 6 swimming pools, international bar and a cosy common room with a big fireplace. Add the most impressive sights of the Milky Way to all of that and you can start getting the picture.

THE DETAIL

Alto Atacama is located in the fertile Catarpe valley, just 3 km away from the town of San Pedro de Atacama.  It is flanked by mountain ranges, iconic archaeological sites, and the San Pedro River trickling its way alongside. The hotel has remained faithful to the local surroundings, creating a hotel which is rustic yet elegant, with local handicrafts adding warmth and character.

The 32 spacious and comfortable rooms all come equipped with mini bar, safe deposit box, TV, telephone and each with a private terrace and incredible views. The internal décor is simple and elegant and they have used local carvings as part of the decoration giving it a rustic charm and in keeping with the spirit of the area.

The living room and library has a great fireplace and is an ideal place to unwind, whilst the outdoor lounge areas have small fire pits that are lit every night allowing you to be outside despite the chill of desert nights.

The outdoor bar and dining room around the pool area gives you the choice of enjoying a leisurely lunch by the water, or simply a chilled glass of Chilean white wine. At Alto Atacama you can choose from over thirty cultural and adventure activities, with everything from a visit to the workshop of a local artisan or a meeting with a shaman, to bike rides and volcano treks.

If all these activities sound too much there is always the ‘Puri’ spa.  It has six outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor whirlpool baths, and a wide range of spa treatments to help you relax. There is a small observatory for viewing the clear skies above.
