Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa

Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa, Atacama, Chile


Some hotels allow you to see the Atacama Desert; the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa helps you live it. With its sweeping views, majority-indigenous staff, and Leave No Trace-schooled guides, this resort lets you work your way deep into the culture and landscape of the driest place on Earth, even as you discover the geysers, volcanoes, and petroglyphs that give it its unearthly beauty.

Located in the Catarpe Valley of the Salt Mountain Range, just over a mile from the main square of San Pedro Atacama, the lodge is designed to blend seamlessly into its surroundings. Rustic village architecture and gardens made from local flora reproduce the forms of the nearby terra-cotta ridges, while a stable of friendly llamas and alpacas welcomes you to your cabin open to the sky. The perfect blend of luxury and sustainability, in one of the most gorgeous natural settings in the world.
