Awasi

    The atmosphere is cool and dark within Awasi’s eight adobe houses, each of which has a straw roof and outdoor shower. Common spaces by the pool, in the open-air restaurant, and by the fire feel intimate and peaceful. In addition to a guide and driver for each house, the hotel employs the best chefs in San Pedro. Situated in the vast desert of San Pedro de Atacama, Awasi is surrounded by dry salt lakes, ponds, rivers, and volcanoes. The desert is the perfect setting to explore nature through group activities or private guided expeditions. Rates A two-night program starts at $1,280 and a five-night program in a suite is $3,375 with meals and alcohol included.
