For thousands of years, Chile's San Pedro de Atacama has been an oasis where travelers rested and re-fuelled for journeys across the desert, and the remains of a nearby settlement date to 800 B.C. The town of San Pedro de Atacama, just a few minutes from Awasi Atacama, has an archaeological museum with a collection of relics, including several mummies. Most visitors take the two hour flight into Calama City, from Santiago. From there, an Awasi guide drives guests the one hour to the resort.

Sleep and relax amid creature comforts at the exclusive luxury resort of Awasi Atacama, then set off in a 4x4 for adventure amid the otherworldly sites of one of the driest deserts on the planet.
A stay at Awasi Atacama feels like a vacation on another planet.

You'll stay in one of only eight stone, adobe, and wood cottages. Inside, they're all lush fabrics and sinkingly soft furnishings. Relax on your private patio, read about the incredible local history in your reading nook, and soak in the surroundings while you soap up in your outdoor shower.
