Travellers' Choice 2019 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. It was created by the Purcell family, long time owners and operators of hotels, famous in Chile for the excellent food and warm hospitality. Tierra Atacama provides guest experiences that combine outdoor adventure and sports with indoor comforts, hospitality and excellent service. Tierra Atacama’s architecture, interior design and gardens were designed by some of Chile’s leading creative talent. Our objectives were to be as authentic as possible, using furniture and accessories handmade with local materials, while also creating a place that allows guests to relax, spoil themselves and enjoy the good-life in this magical part of the earth. Our ambiance is casual and friendly; we want our guests to be comfortable in our common areas just as if they were in their own homes. Enjoy one of the welcoming private corners of the hotel such as a seat by one of the terrace fire pits, lounge next to the pool or relax on one of the shady outdoor decks. When night falls, take in the brilliant stars, bask in the peace and wonder that is the Atacama Desert.

Tierra Atacama is a wonderful all inclusive lodge to stay at in the Atacama Desert. We loved the zen/peaceful decor, the personable and caring guides, and the meal menus. The bathroom needs a little updating to include a double sink separate from the bathing area.

Review collected in partnership with this hotel
I don't have the words to convey my experience here glowingly enough. As soon as I stepped through the front doors, I say "Wow". The setting is spectacular, and Tierra has done a phenomenal job integrating the property with the backdrop. The pool area doesn't even look real.

This hotel is perfect for the desert. Located in the oasis town of San Pedro, one is surrounded by green. But once outside the adobe walls, one becomes quickly aware that one is in the desert. Some of the most amazing geology is but a short, bumpy drive away. The town itself is
