Santiago

A city, which for many years has played second fiddle to Buenos Aires and Rio, Santiago is used to being the underdog metropolis in South America. However, since it's 200-year anniversary, public work projects have aimed to rejuvenate a once stale region, into a desirable destination in itself. The result is that now, more than ever, Santiago is turning into a city worth visiting. New and trendy restaurants, modern hotels, excited locals and bustling shops combine for the perfect gateway to Chile.

Atacama

From wide, flat saltpans, to jagged mountains and an overly-dry atmosphere, there are few matches to Atacama's beauty in South America. Atacama's alien landscape continues for miles and miles in every direction. Traveling here very much feels like removing oneself from society, from civilization, from everything. Its expansiveness allows for tons of activities from hiking to off roading, so despite the huge emptiness of the high plateau, you'll never run out of things to do.

Accommodation

The Singular Santiago

The Singular Santiago

The Singular Santiago is a five-star luxury hotel located in the Lastarria Neighborhood in the heart of downtown Santiago. The hotel was designed specifically to fit seamlessly into this iconic neighborhood, which epitomizes the pride and creativity of the people of Santiago. The history and heritage of Chile are important to our owners; they are descended from the pioneers who traveled to Patagonia to start a new life. One of the reasons they created The Singular Patagonia was to help capture the spirit of their homeland. Our Patagonian hotel has since been recognized as among the finest in all of South America, so we decided to continue our mission by creating a new Singular hotel in Santiago, to help reflect the proud past of our capital.

Casa Higueras

Casa Higueras

Located in the heart of Cerro Alegre and facing an impressive view of the bay of Valparaíso, Casa Higueras is the first boutique + design hotel to open in this port town. Following a careful restoration, this 1920s mansion has been converted into a charming hotel. Casa Higueras strives to bring together modern amenities with the warmth of the past, a nostalgic comfort that reflects the rhythm and character of Valparaíso. Casa Higueras houses 20 exclusive guestrooms designed with good taste and elegance. Seen from the Cordillera hills and from the Prat Pier, Casa Higueras looks much like a Mediterranean villa, with its terraces, stairs and sun shades. At the garden level, a spectacular pool with lounge chairs and a spa invite total relaxation. The majority of the guestrooms have individual terraces, with views of the Valparaiso bay and the Cordillera and Concepcion hills.

Lapostolle Residence

Lapostolle Residence

Immersed in idyllic countryside, Lapostolle Residence fuses luxury, comfort and hospitality to perfection. Set within Lapostolle’s prestigious Clos Apalta vineyards and offering spectacular views over the valley, this hotel welcomes its guests in 4 beautifully decorated villas nestled into the native forested hillside of the valley, providing complete serenity and privacy. There is a swimming pool and dining room area reserved just for guests, where you can take your meals and conduct a tasting of Lapostolle's two top shelf wines, Clos Apalta and Borobo, among others. You can also go horse riding, hiking and tour some (or all) of the 12 other wineries in the immediate area. You will enjoy all the modern amenities of a luxury hotel in a bucolic, serene and tailor-made setting.

Awasi Atacama

Awasi Atacama

San Pedro de Atacama has been a beloved destination for thousands of years. It's a place to stop and refresh your mind, body and spirit, before continuing on their journey through the Atacama. Awasi, meaning "at home" in the local Kunza language, was created to continue the noble task of sheltering travelers and enriching their connection with the culture and landscape of the Atacama Desert. The Awasi Atacama reflects the traditional style of the Atacama people, featuring round adobe walls, stones and thatched roofs, but interspersed with touches of modern luxury. Indoor and outdoor showers, spacious solariums and oversize comfy armchairs draped with soft, handwoven alpaca blankets are a staple in each of the 10 suites. During your stay, you will also be provided with your very own 4×4 jeep and expert local guide. Private excursions can be done by jeep, on foot, by bike or on horseback, without restrictions.
