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.

The desert oasis of San Pedro de Atacama—which rivals Patagonia as a wilderness destination—sells itself, but to explore the remote salt flats, volcanic formations, and meandering rivers with a group is almost a shame.
