Tierra Atacama was created by the Purcell family, long time owners and operators of Chile's Portillo Ski Resort and Hotel, famed in Chile for its excellent skiing, food and warm hospitality. Tierra Atacama follows the same ethos as Portillo, providing guest experiences combining options for adventure and activities with a high level of comfort and service.

The guest rooms at Tierra Atacama all have private terraces and all have views of the Licancabur volcano, with the exception of the Family Rooms, which overlook the gardens. Much thought has been given to the interior decoration, with many of the materials sourced locally to reflect the local culture. Cow hides, hand made textiles and crafts have been used to furnish both the guest rooms and general areas, decorated in a neo-minimal style with elegant woods and subtle chocolate and sand tones.
