Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Our lodge is located on a plain known as the Ayllu de Larache, once inhabited by an ancient Atacameno community. We have respected the original layout of the land and restored and maintained some of the buildings.Opened in 1998, our lodge is situated on 17 hectares (42 acres) of grounds just a few minutes' walk from the town of San Pedro de Atacama. In the area surrounding the lodge, we have maintained the ancient pathways and buildings which form a labyrinth that invites exploration.There are 50 rooms housed in three long buildings, positioned to form a central square planted with large trees for ample shade. On the fourth side of the square is the building which houses the lodge's public spaces. The views from the lodge's broad terraces enable you to enjoy Atacama's vast chain of volcanic mountains.In 2008, we set ourselves the challenge of intensifying your explora Atacama experience, remodeling the furnishings and the indoor and outdoor spaces. Now that the work is complete, we are pleased to be able to offer you new facilities and services.

The general all-inclusive concept and the facilities (room/ pools), as well as the food, are wonderful. Given the very high price, however (about $900 per room per night), there is room for improvement:1) there are 4 pools, but none is heated; the desert climate of...More

There would be no need for a renovation if there hadn't been a dreadful fire. We were there in September and the resort was stunning. I felt sick when I read about the damage that had occurred.
