Chilean Patagonia is one of the most awe-inspiring landscapes in South America. This remote region of the world is a place of spectacular lakes rimmed by forests and ancient hills, glaciers, a coastline rich in wildlife and some of the best mountaineering and hiking in the world. 

Patagonia speaks for itself. The people and unique culture, the scenery, climate and specially adapted flora and fauna make this one of the ultimate travel destinations, and for all types of traveler, too. 

Yet knowing where to stay in Chilean Patagonia is just as important as the day trips, adventures, and iconic sights you’ll be set to enjoy. To help you decide where to stay in Patagonia, our expert team have put together a list of their favorite boutique lodges and hotels to make sure you have an unforgettable trip here.

1. The Singular Patagonia

With one of the most stunning hotel settings near Torres del Paine, The Singular Patagonia already has an advantage over most other boutique properties in the region. Found on the shores of Last Hope Sound and surrounded by untouched plains, with Patagonian mountains filling the horizon, this is a property that fully immerses you in the landscape itself.

Having once been an industrial cold storage plant – and still showcasing plenty of original features, the Singular Patagonia is now a fully-fledged boutique retreat. Here, you can expect fine dining cuisine, homely guestrooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lake, and a long list of excursions to explore Torres del Paine, the nearby fjords and forests. 

Full of character, history, and no shortage of luxury, The Singular Patagonia is one of Chile’s finest.

2. Explora Patagonia

Wild adventures meet understated luxury at Explora Patagonia. This much-loved eco-retreat sits near the turquoise waters of Lake Pehoé, with the ‘three horns’ Patagonian mountains on your doorstep while here. The setting provides everything you need for an adventure-filled trip to Torres del Paine, all the while with a luxurious lodge to come home to each evening. 

It’s all about discovering the landscape at Explora Patagonia, with endless tours and day trips available. From horse riding to hiking, high-mountain ascents to self-guided trips into the surrounding hills, you’ll never be short of adventure at Explora Patagonia. 

The lodge itself is understated from the outside, though very comfortable within. There’s a spa and pool to unwind in, a reading room with lake views, fantastic restaurant, and clean, comfortable guestrooms to recharge after a day in the great outdoors.

3. NOI Hotel Indigo Patagonia

Soak up the sights of Última Esperanza Fjord at NOI Indigo Patagonia, and enjoy a little local flavor while exploring Puerto Natales along the way. Guestrooms at this Patagonian lodge are adorned with colorful handwoven throws, native artworks, and wood paneling to evoke feelings of a cozy log cabin hideaway. 

You’ll find a restaurant proudly serving fantastic Patagonian cuisine at NOI Indigo Patagonia and a long list of excursions out to Torres del Paine, the Serrano Glacier, and more. The hotel is a good family-friendly option in the area, though the Aiken Spa and lounge bar provide plenty for adults, too.

4. Awasi Patagonia 

Eco-friendly credentials don’t come at the cost of luxury levels at Awasi Patagonia, one of the most elegant boutique lodges in Torres del Paine. This magnificent Relais & Chateaux property prides itself on exquisite fine dining cuisine, beautiful guestrooms and villas, and one of the best lodge locations in Patagonia. 

You can go all-inclusive here, meaning everything is taken care of for you throughout your stay. From the extraordinary food to the culturally sensitive excursions and tours, the spellbinding views across Patagonian plains and then the luxurious lodge itself, Awasi Patagonia promises an unforgettable experience that’s worthy of its incredible location.    

What’s more, this particular property even has its own foundation, aimed at protecting native wildlife as well as local customs and traditions, too. 

5. Hotel Río Serrano

More modern than many Patagonian properties, the Hotel Río Serrano in Torres del Paine offers a truly indulgent escape. Facilities come aplenty at Hotel Río Serrano, including a sizeable swimming pool complete with mountain views, a spa, mouthwatering restaurant, and tastefully decorated guestrooms. 

From here, you can take a tour of the Grey Glacier, follow the Otter River on horseback, or go hiking across the plains, all the while with a luxurious lakeside hotel to come home to after it all.

6. Tierra Patagonia

Get under the skin of Tierra del Fuego National Park in glorious style at the Tierra Patagonia hotel, a seamless boutique property overlooking Lake Sarmiento. Designed in blonde wood and walls of glass to blend effortlessly into the landscape, the space-age design of Tierra Patagonia is unique among Patagonia’s luxury hotels – both inside and out. There is substance to back up the contemporary style here too, with a luxe Uma Spa complete with hydro-massage, pool-with-a-view, Jacuzzi tubs and a steam room, as well as yoga classes and relaxation therapies to sooth you after a day amongst the great outdoors. Dining at Tierra Patagonia comes courtesy of a delectable restaurant and bar serving seasonal cuisine, fine wine and cocktails, while the long list of hiking, biking, nature and sightseeing tours available outside your front door will keep you busy for days.

No matter where you choose to go in Patagonia, whatever your areas of interest or group size, there is something special waiting for you in this dramatic part of the world.
