Great location, great staff, great trips, great food and lots of wonderful wine. A great haven at the foothills of the Andes. The day trips are tailored to suit your individual needs. The food is fantastic apart from barbecue night which is the chef's night off!

Amazing experience in a beautiful hotel! What really sets Awasi apart is the service - all the staff went out of their way to be helpful to us.

Food was amazing, and the restaurant was... More

I've been meaning to write a review since February, when we stayed at Awasi. Atacama is huge and varied, with many options. I know that having our own guide and driver, offered by Awasi, was key to a wonderfully successful visit. Our guide Carola was excellent, quickly understanding our interests and limitations, and offering great suggestions. She and driver David... More

We had a wonderful time! My wife and both said that the service we had at Awasi may have been the best we have ever experienced. From the staff at the hotel to our guide Mabel to the amazing meals, everything was impeccable. We couldn't have been happier!

Look no further than Awasi if you are considering splurging. Here you will find very comfortable rooms and beds, showers and tubs, full walk in closets and private patios.

We spent four days at Awasi and planned to use it as a base to explore the Atacama desert. Awasi exceeded our expectations in every area.
