Tierra Atacama, Atacama Desert

A unique destination and a unique place to experience it, the Tierra Atacama is a luxurious way to do eco-tourism in the stunning Atacama Desert.

Situated near to the desert oasis of San Pedro de Atacama in northern Chile’s vast Atacama Desert, the Tierra Atacama is a haven of luxurious comfort. Created by some of the country’s leading architects and designers, the rooms and living spaces beautifully showcase local craftsmanship and culture from handwoven throws to llama figures sculpted out of volcanic rock. Not to mention the private terraces with their spectacular desert, mountain and volcano views. Creative regional cuisine, taking advantage of local produce, is served in the light-filled dining room alongside desert panoramas.

Choose the Tierra Atacama on your luxury, tailor-made holiday to Chile and you’ll have an enticing menu of desert adventures right on your doorstep. From horseback riding and full moon hikes to excursions to gushing geysers and volcanoes, you can explore the desert in your own way alongside a team of expert guides. After a long day, escape to the Uma Spa where treatments draw inspiration from the surrounding desert. Alternatively, you can enjoy a refreshing dip in the pool or grab a seat by one of the terrace fire pits to keep warm as you admire the starry night skies.
