The Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa is the only lodge in the San Pedro region that is totally enveloped by natural surroundings. Located in the lush Catarpe Valley of the Salt Mountain Range, just over a mile from the plaza of San Pedro de Atacama, Alto Atacama’s design was influenced by local village architecture and conceived to blend seamlessly into its environment and appear as a part of the terracotta-colored ridge that rises behind it. The Caur Restaurant serves healthy cuisine that is a blend of Mediterranean, Chilean and Atacameñan dishes. Located near six oasis-like swimming pools, Puri Spa is a haven of relaxation featuring an indoor Jacuzzi, steam room and sauna, as well as massage, aromatherapy, and reflexology realized with local Atacameñan techniques and products.
The lodge features 42 rooms including five standard Quitor, 27 superior Catarpe, and 10 suites Tilo. Rooms are designed in the Atacameñan style of dark adobe walls to keep rooms naturally cool (without air conditioning), and have floor to ceiling windows that open onto a private terrace with a view.
Rates start at EUR 200 per person per night.
