AWASI Patagonia | Torres del Paine National Park | Chile
San Pedro de Atacama
We have built a small lodge in a private reserve located in the same spot where Florence Dixie camped and enjoyed her first views of the majestic Torres del Paine Mountain Range; a sight that captivated her over 140 years ago and which continues to captivate travellers today. At Awasi Patagonia, our mission is to provide memorable travel experiences and to share with our guests something of the culture and nature of one of South America’s most attractive corners.
Awasi Patagonia is located in a private reserve with impressive views of the Torres del Paine Mountain Range and Lake Sarmiento. A thick native forest of lenga and ñirre trees protects the chosen location from the strong Patagonian winds. The native fauna remains intact, and herds of guanacos, ñandus, foxes, condors and pumas can be spotted from the lodge and villas. Awasi Patagonia’s strategic location allows you to enjoy Torres del Paine National Park from the intimacy of a private reserve, away from the crowds and traffic found in high season.
Our Villas Inspired by traditional Patagonian shelters and estate “outposts”, we have built just 14 villas on the Awasi private reserve (including one master villa with two suites). We carefully selected native wood so that the structures would blend in with their natural surroundings. The 14 villas are located between 50 and 400 meters from the Main Lodge. Each villa enjoys utmost privacy and “front row” views of the surrounding woodland, Lake Sarmiento and the Torres del Paine Mountain Range. Guests are free to walk and cycle along the trails connecting the villas, however, we also have transportation available between the villas and communal areas, which you may request at your convenience.

Inside the Villas
Each villa has a surface area of 80 square meters, with a living room, wood burning stove and private hot tub. They were designed and positioned to highlight the superb views from every angle.
Our restaurant, for the exclusive use of Awasi guests, offers a daily menu using the finest local ingredients, adapted to guests requirements. We are proud to deliver levels of culinary excellence that define us as members of Relais & Chateaux. Matías Crosta is Awasi Patagonia’s Chef. With 20 years of experience under his belt, Mariano has worked in Argentina, Spain and Chile. His specialties include seafood, pasta and rice dishes, and he loves discovering new flavours and ingredients.
Prior to your arrival at Awasi, we will ask you to complete a short questionnaire to inform us of your preferences, special interests, physical conditions, dietary requirements, and any other details that will help our team arrange an unforgettable trip, especially designed for you.
From the moment you arrive, you will be allocated your own private excursion guide and a 4WD vehicle, allowing you to explore the region at your own pace. This may mean lingering to contemplate a landscape, driving over kilometers of pure natural surroundings to capture that perfect photograph, or letting yourself be guided through the full majesty of Patagonia.
Guests can go on walks from their villas, enjoying the different trails in our reserve, spotting local flora and fauna. They may also arrange different tours with their private guides within and outside the National Park – with means of getting around including horseback riding, hiking, cycling, or travelling by 4WD. You may choose between full-day excursions with lunch included (from 4 to 6 hrs.); or two half-day excursions (each one between 2 and 5 hrs.) returning to have lunch at Awasi after the first excursion and heading out again in the afternoon.
Our guides are professionally trained in archaeology, history, flora, fauna and first aid, so you can enjoy trip of a lifetime in a safe, in-depth and pleasant way. We have guides who speak English, Spanish, German, French and Portuguese, available on request. All our vehicles are equipped with GPS and communication systems..
We recommend wearing several layers of clothing in order to make the most of the changeable weather. Packing the right clothes can make the difference between a wonderful, and an uncomfortable visit to Patagonia.
When heading out on excursions, ideally you should wear:
1st layer: undershirt and long underwear made of quick-drying, synthetic material that will absorb humidity.
2nd layer: light clothing that will keep you warm and protect you from the wind.
3rd layer (external, for body insulation): breathable and water-repellent jackets and trousers. Gloves, hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, comfortable shoes for hiking, backpack, water bottle (provided by Awasi upon arrival). Any medication that you may require.
