Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa sits on a bluff where the South American pampa meets Lake Sarmiento. The building is immersed in the landscape and emerges from the hillside. The award-winning architecture complements the flow of the geology in this privileged location. It showcases the Torres del Paine National Park's magnificent views, declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1978. Inside, wood clad walls emanate warmth, safety, and protection, a cozy hideaway after a day spent discovering the amazing Patagonian outdoors. The essence of the interior decoration mirrors the design of the sister hotel, Tierra Atacama, and here, as there, furnishings and textiles were hand made by Chilean craftspeople, using natural materials from the region, high-quality craft and inspiration from the surrounding Estancias as well as the influence of the native Tehuelche people.
The ambiance of Tierra Patagonia is casual and friendly. The designers' different spaces mean that guests can mingle and get to know one another or find a quiet corner to relax and get away from it all. There is something truly delicious about curling up on a comfortable sofa with a lap blanket, a book, and a glass of wine and then forgetting about the book and just staring out the window at one of the Earth's most sublime places.
The Rooms & Suites - The rooms are an ode to nature, like the rest of hotel Tierra Patagonia. The space is elegant yet understated, made with local wood, with whitewash walls on either side to focus your attention on the views beyond. The aim is to bring the outside in so that you enjoy the guestrooms' warmth while feeling a connection to your surroundings. Whichever of the three-room types you choose, you’ll find hints of Patagonia’s culture and history throughout, including sheepskin rugs, soft, handmade throws, and, printed lightly on the chairs, patterns of ancient fossils found nearby. With no televisions, you can unwind and disconnect easily, all while watching the shifting light and weather patterns dance over the lake and mountains.
Suites - The spacious suites feature two levels, providing both a peaceful bedroom downstairs and a welcoming living area upstairs, the perfect refuge after a day out exploring Chilean Patagonia. The suites are styled with rustic simplicity, so while you gaze out at Torres del Paine through the floor to ceiling windows, you’ll find yourself surrounded by craftwork, such as fittings carved from Patagonian driftwood found on the nearby lakeshore.
Dining - Modern Patagonian Cuisine - Having spent the day exploring the rugged wilderness of Patagonia, there is no feeling quite like returning home to a warm meal, great service, and a top-notch view to match. The Patagonian cuisine is an irresistible mix of hearty stews, slow-cooked soups, and tasty dishes sourced from the lodge's nearby estancias. The contemporary approach to cooking techniques and the ingredients using results in a broad, varied menu suitable for all tastes, preferences, and diets. The onsite chef then prides himself on serving up sophisticated dishes, akin to those found in top-notch city center restaurants that are all the more indulgent in this entirely remote location.
The Setting - Warm lighting and softwood tones feel as if you are dining in a true nature sanctuary, particularly as the wild, Patagonian steppe unfolds on the other side of the restaurant’s windows. This space truly is a ‘room with a view’ and, at times, will showcase the local climate’s whirlwind weather and wildlife at play during a single sitting. "The Bar"- After a day of action and an evening of heartwarming food, the grand circular bar is just the place to finish the night. Patagonian beers and some of Chile’s greatest wine labels are there for your enjoyment, not to mention the signature Calafate Sour, a flavor that can only be found in Patagonia.
Spa & Wellness - The Paine Massif’s silhouette serves as a backdrop for Uma Spa at Tierra Patagonia. Indulge in the outdoor hot tub or switch between the steam room and indoor pool. Encased in tall glass walls, you’ll feel effortlessly connected to Patagonia, all the while enjoying the wellness facilities. Spa Facilities -
The highlight of Uma Spa is the heated, indoor pool, complete with hydro-massage and water jets, all encased in a glass-paneled sanctuary, offering views of the wild surroundings. It’s not unusual to spot Patagonian wildlife from here either. The spa circuit incorporates various temperatures and spaces to restore, relax or revitalize, including a pool, steam room, and soothing relaxation spaces. Outside, the open-air whirlpool tub offers the chance to soak in warm waters while taking in views of Torres Del Paine and perhaps even spotting a guanaco or ñandú, which has wandered up to the hotel.
"Therapies & Massages"- Enter a zen-like state in the treatment rooms, with aromatherapy oils, peaceful sounds, and soft lighting. The wellness space, which includes a yoga studio and separate relaxation rooms for men and women, is clad in warm, locally sourced wood and stone. At the same time, treatments and therapies use all-natural ingredients. Take your pick from an extensive list of facials, massages, body wraps, scrubs, and alternative therapies designed to open up your ‘prana’ or ‘life force,’ promoting positive thoughts and wellbeing.
