San Pedro de Atacama, Northern Chile
Alto Atacama Desert Lodge Spa
  • Stunning work of architecture set against a dramatic desert backdrop

  • Six outdoor pools and extensive areas for relaxing

  • Outdoor lounge areas with small fire pits

  • Great base for numerous adventure activities


The Nayara Alto Atacama is a superb base for visiting the Atacama Desert and blends seamlessly into its surroundings very much like the typical dwellings of the area and is located 10 minutes outside of the oasis village of San Pedro.

The interior decoration is faithful to the local aesthetic; rustic yet elegant, with local crafts adding warmth and character. All guest rooms have a private terrace; the perfect spot to absorb the colour and silence of the valley. Guests can choose from over thirty cultural and adventure activities, with everything from a visit to the workshop of a local artisan or a meeting with a shaman, to bike rides, volcano treks and visiting high altitude salt lakes and geysers further afield.

The Nayara Alto Atacama also offers a myriad of drives into the most stunning landscape, unique locations for outdoor lunches, and unforgettable sunsets. At the hotel’s observatory the intimate, small-group star gazing experience has been designed to be more sensory than technical, focusing on the magnitude of the magnificent night sky of Chile’s north. For a more relaxing time, the ‘Puri’ spa has six outdoor pools, indoor and outdoor whirlpool baths, and a wide range of spa treatments.
