Review

Set in 20 acres of land and with the largest Spa in all of San Pedro de Atacama, the Cumbres is an impressive hotel that still feels intimate thanks to its thoughtful, single-storey design - inspired by the indigenous population of the Atacama region. Combined with 21st century technology, Cumbres have devised a unique environment for the Atacama Desert experience. Whilst it is a cut above most of the accommodation in San Pedro, we feel it lacks the intimacy and elegance of Tierra Atacama or Alto Atacama.

Location

Along with several other high-quality properties, such as Tierra and Explora, Cumbres is on the outskirts of San Pedro de Atacama, approx. 2km from the town centre. A free shuttle into town is available. The isolation certainly aids the feeling of being in an oasis amongst the desert.

Rooms

There are 60 rooms, with both twin and king bed formation available, including 4 pairs of interconnected rooms – ideal for families. All room include a complimentary mini-bar, digital safe, air-con/heating control, flat-screen TV with cable, a private terrace and an outdoor shower (in addition to the shower in the en-suite bathroom).

Layout

The main building houses the reception/lobby area to one side, where day-trips can also be booked with their dedicated excursions desk. The other side of the building houses the restaurant, dining area, outdoor patio (for eating or relaxing) along with the indoor and outdoor bars. Cumbres San Pedro spreads out in wings to the east and west of the main building. The spa and swimming pools are located to the west, so we would advise to request a room on that side of the property, to avoid a longer than necessary walk to the pools.

Facilities

Hands down, the Cumbres’ pièce de résistance is their Spa. To start, there are 3 outdoor pools and 2 outdoor jacuzzis; all of which has their individual temperatures noted on a chalk board. Should you wish to lounge in or around the pools, you will also have food & drink service at your disposal. While it cannot match the six outdoor pools of Alto or the view from Tierra’s infinity pool, it is most certainly a healthy compromise of the two. The Spa, open from 09:00-22:00, has five massage rooms, two saunas, a gym, his-and-hers steam rooms and lockers and even oxygen therapy treatment. All spa treatments must be booked in advance and costs are supplementary to all room rates. Bikes can be hired complementary. The restaurant also provides an evening BBQ on Saturday and Sundays, except during winter.
