Minutes from Chile’s Lake Sarmiento on the edges of Torres del Paine National Park is Tierra Patagonia, an architecturally striking hotel and spa that complements and incorporates its unique surroundings.
From the outside, the hotel is rugged and natural, blending so well into the landscape that you could be forgiven for missing it from afar. The inside, however, is something else. Constructed almost entirely from local wood, and with natural furnishings and textiles hand made by Chilean craftspeople, this space is a warm, comforting and luxurious haven in one of the world’s most remote places – think crooked wooden beams, soft sheepskins, cowhide rugs and large, open fireplaces.
Floor-to-ceiling windows make up the hotel, offering breath taking views of the lake and peaks of Paine Massif from every room. But the views alone aren’t enough; the hotel is here to allow visitors to fully immerse themselves in the area, offering hikes through forests, valleys and up mountains, horse riding with local gauchos, and sailing on the Serrano River.
Tierra Patagonia is the perfect place to come back to and relax in, with an on-site spa, open bar, hearty locally-sourced food and extensive library offering the ultimate in a peaceful wind-down. For more information, visit the Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa website.
