Similar in concept to that of the nearby Casa Real, the La Casona at Matetic offers superb accommodation in an absolutely delightful setting, while also being a stone’s throw from one of Chile’s finest vineyards. Located just of the main road through to Valparaiso, the Matetic vineyard has become famous the world over for the fantastic, organic wines that it produces.
Hotel Cabana del Lago has plenty of appeal and will please all types of travellers. It is a good choice for anyone wanting facilities, a relaxed environment, a good location, sweeping lake views and not much else.
Caiquenes is a property with plenty of character surrounded by a nice garden plot and at a stone throw away from the beach. Coming here means opting for a more relaxed stay and enjoying all the benefits of a boutique hotel experience, great personal service, a meal when it suits you and tailored to your preferences…the owner is more than happy to oblige for this!
One of the largest and arguably most “designed’ of the hotels in and around Puerto Natales, many would say that, on paper, the Remota is number one. There is no doubt that the entrance hall, facilities and rooms are to the very highest of standards but, for us, it has been designed to look good, rather than be a true haven.
As with the handful of hotels that have the privilege of being inside the National Park, Hotel las Torres has a superb location, right at the foot of the Torres themselves. On top of being inside of the park the Hotel las Torres benefits from being the only hotel to own land inside the park, allowing them a far more private view of this famous park.
Awasi is one of a kind in this remote area and we think they got it right. First of all, you do get the impression from the management team that nothing is out of reach to make their guests happy. At the same time, the service and interaction is very informal.
This charming, converted town house is one of our pick of the bunch while staying in the Valpariaso. Set high up on the hillside, the Zero Hotel is ideally located for wandering around the multi coloured streets or simply relaxing by the terraced pool and lounging area that look magnificently out to the bay and the Pacific beyond.
As with our opinion of the Aubrey, if you are looking to stay in a chic and modern hotel while in the capital, then you could not do too much better than considering the W Santiago. This modern and sleek property is leading the way in bringing Santiago into the 21st century and has played host to such big names as Beyonce amongst others.
Located in the chic Bellavista region on the capital, the Aubrey is a relatively new venture from the owners of the superb Pasta e Vino restaurant in the nearby Valparaiso. Definitely one of the most designed of the city’s hotels, the hotel features a second of the award winning restaurant, but for guests only, amongst other things.
Another beautifully thought out property in the Puerto Natales area, the Temauken really does a fantastic job at catering to the lower end of the market. Outstanding views out from the rooms, a really cosy and inviting main area and just a stone’s throw from the centre, make this a really good choice for those on more of a budget.
