When Do You Want To Go?

A Beautifully Integrated, Luxury Desert Lodge

Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa is situated about a mile from the plaza of San Pedro in the lush Catarpe Valley of the Salt Mountain Range. The design was influenced by local village architecture and the lodge blends seamlessly into its environment so it appears to be part of the terracotta-coloured ridge behind it. The tranquil setting, sweeping views, sophisticated rooms and wonderful outdoor spaces make the Alto Atacama a luxury destination in itself.

Alto Atacama seeks to open guests' eyes to the natural wonder of the Atacama Desert by providing opportunities to explore, feel and connect with the environment. The hotel shows strong commitment to the local community and guests can really discover the rich local culture through the hotel's excellent guides, many of whom are indigenous to the local region.

The hotel offers a range of excursions into the Atacama Desert as part of a stay with them. Why not explore the Tatio Geysers and hot springs or climb a volcano with spectacular views over the desert. Alternatively you may wish to try mountain biking through desert canyons or explore ancient Incan ruins.

During your stay, we also recommend a visit to the wonderful spa. Despite being in a desert, San Pedro de Atacama is an Oasis because of water from glacial snow, and it makes the Spa a truly revitalizing experience. Expert staff use water and aromatic scents to invigorate your body and spirit. Perfect after a day of exploring the desert!
