HOT Rooms in Chile - Vacations & Travel Magazine
From glamorous yurts to stunning hotels in Patagonia, Easter Island and the Atacama Desert, Chilean hotels are known for their style.
THE SINGULAR PATAGONIA
Where: Puerto Bories Patagonia
Highlights: This magnificent resort was once a cold storage plant built in 1915 that took 10 years to renovate and restore. It was resurrected by fourth generation relatives of the plant’s founders and is a celebration of its heritage. The 57 rooms and suites feature custom-made, hand-crafted furniture and spectacular views. The luxury resort offers amazing experiences including trekking, sailing fjords, kayaking, fly-fishing and mountain biking. Dining is an adventure featuring regional recipes and fresh produce. An eco-spa is perfect for unwinding after a busy day of exploring on horseback or navigating rivers by kayak. In a nod to the past, the hotel’s restored wooden dock sits over the Fjord of Last Hope from which ships once took wool to world markets.
VIRA VIRA HACIENDA HOTEL
Highlights: Named after a local ancient medicinal herb, known as the herb of life, this hotel soothes the soul and inspires. It is set on a 23-hectare native park along the shores of the Liucura River and offers a perfect haven in which to relax and unwind. Surrounded by national parks and volcanoes, including the majestic volcano Villarrica, it has hotel rooms, villa suites and hacienda rooms – some with hot tubs overlooking the river. The special Ruca Suite is located in the middle of a native forest overlooking the lagoon. This Relais and Châteaux hotel features ‘The Elegance of Adventure’ program that includes an all-inclusive stay with daily activities. Dining is also an adventure here with a fabulous menu of regional produce.
