Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa sits on a bluff where the pampa meets Lake Sarmiento. The building is immersed in the landscape and emerges from the hillside, its award winning architecture complementing the flow of the geology in this privileged location and showcasing the magnificent views of the Torres del Paine National Park, declared a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve in 1978.
Inside, wood clad walls emanate warmth, safety and protection – a cosy refuge after a day exploring the amazing surroundings of granite towers, cobalt blue lakes, icebergs, glaciers and abundant wildlife. Furnishings and textiles were hand made by Chilean craftspeople, using natural materials from the region, high quality workmanship and inspiration from the surrounding estancias as well as the influence of the native Tehuelche people. The ambience of Tierra Patagonia is casual and friendly, the different spaces allow guests to mingle and get to know one another or find a quiet corner to relax and get away from it all.
The hotel has 40 beautifully decorated rooms in all; 3 suites, 34 superior rooms (10 of which can be interconnected to make family apartments) and 3 standard rooms (with a bathtub in the main room). All rooms have beautiful views across Lake Sarmiento to the peaks of Torres del Paine National Park.
Facilities include a large central space with a welcoming open fire, living room, bar, library, TV room, a map area for discovering the available activities and excursions, and the dining room. There is WiFi in the public areas and iPads are available for guest use. Uma Spa is within the hotel and features an indoor swimming pool with jets, cascades and the same stunning views of the Torres del Paine as the rest of the hotel. There is also an outdoor Jacuzzi, sauna, steam bath, locker rooms and relaxation areas. Spa professionals offer many types of massages and facials, using local stones and elements.
Activities are divided into 3 levels of difficulty; easy, medium and high, with an average group size between 4 and 6 guests. Every day guests can choose between two half-day excursions or one full-day excursion. The hotel offers all-inclusive packages that include all meals, bar, guided excursions, use of Uma Spa facilities and transfers to and from the local airports.
