Hotels in Chile
Chilean accommodations are varied and far-flung. You can choose full-service hotels and resorts, economical inns, cozy B&Bs, or budget hostels. One of the standout hotels in Chile is the Awasi Patagonia. It’s located in the southern desert oasis of San Pedro de Atacama. Chilean architect Felipe Assadi designed the boutique space. Twelve (all-inclusive) villas face glacial lakes and the snow-capped Torres del Paine Mountains. The hotel also offers excursions to discover the surrounding wilderness. At night, wrap yourself in alpaca wool blankets and watch the stars from the couches in the courtyard.
Casa Real Hotel, once a manor, offers the perfect stay with access to the estate’s finest wines from its vineyards. This Chile hotel in the Maipo Valley has no shortage of elegance and luxury, with all the modern trimmings. Hacienda Los Lingues in San Fernando is a restored hacienda and one of Chile’s most historic spots to stay. Ideal for riding enthusiasts, the hotel has a colonial style with contemporary amenities, plus 25,000 acres of land including stables and an on-site rodeo ring. Other notable Chile hotels include the Ritz-Carlton Santiago, Tierra Patagonia Hotel and Spa, and Kau Lodge. Below find Travel + Leisure’s top spots for where to stay in Chile.

Chilean wine is finally garnering serious attention, thanks in part to innovative vintners who are outfitting century-old estates with state-of-the-art technology. Among them: Santa Rita vineyards, 25 miles south of Santiago, in the Maipo Valley.
Though the hotel—ideally located just paces from the subway in tony Las Condes—attracts a primarily business-travel crowd (as does Santiago), the amenities are outstanding for any discerning traveler: indoor pools and a spa are housed in a vaulted glass rooftop, and the sleek 100 Grand bar (which
The massive preserve covers 8,000 acres of forest and has six pristine miles of oceanfront. Guides lead guests to see the old-growth forests, giant 4,000-year-old Andean alerce trees, and wildlife like the Humboldt and Magellanic penguins.
Explora’s LEED-certified lodge, which opened in 2007, offers accomodations worthy of its legendary (and legendarily remote) setting 3,700 miles off Chile's coast.
In the summer of 2005, this mountain-clinging resort, originally built in 1912 on a site celebrated by Charles Darwin for its thermal waters and pure air, reopened after a three-year overhaul; a trio of new buildings, including the stunning five-suite Casona Patronal, blend seamlessly with the or
