Singular Patagonia

Many of Patagonia’s most renowned lodges are located either within the Torres del Paine National Park or right outside of it. The Singular sits around an hour and a half’s drive away, outside the coastal town of Puerto Natales. Although this may seem like a drawback, the location has a host of advantages: not only is the lodge more easily reached from the local airports, but it also offers visitors a broad variety of excursions not available within the park. Its coastal location makes adventures on the water some of the most popular, from kayaking through fjords to fly-fishing to sailing through the Last Hope Sound to a private reserve. Full-day hikes through the Park, treks to the ancient Mylodon Caves and cycling are also highly recommended.

The Singular is built within an historic meatpacking facility, and elements of its past - a Victorian engine room, a tannery - are still uniquely on display. The fifty-four rooms and suites sit in a modern wing, each with floor-to-ceiling picture windows overlooking the fjords. While the decor is minimalist, it has traditional Chilean accents such as wooden writing desks, oversized armchairs and historic photos of Patagonia explorers. And, unlike at some of the other lodges, rooms also have satellite TV. There is also a small spa with a steam room, dry sauna and indoor/outdoor pool, as well as a buzzy restaurant with an award-winning chef. Families have flocked to the Singular due to its convenient location as well as its excursions that suit children too young for serious trekking. Although there aren’t interconnecting rooms, rollaway beds can be brought in for smaller kids and adjacent rooms reserved for teens.

View from Living Room at Tierra Chiloé, Chilean Patagonia, Chile

Tierra Chiloé

Most modern-day Patagonian explorers head south, straight to the luxury lodges in the famed Torres del Paine National Park. But when Tierra Chiloé opened on the island of Chiloé in 2012, the coastal adventures became just as appealing. With 24 rooms, this high-design hideaway on the undiscovered island of Chiloé is a unique alternative to the Torres del Paine lodges. A short hop from Puerto Montt (the flights make a quick stop there but passengers from Santiago do not need to change planes), Tierra Chiloé combines contemporary décor with rugged scenery and land and sea excursions. The hotel has its own boat, custom-made by local boat builders, to explore the channels and small villages, and there are also horseback rides that leave from the lodge. For those less interested in active pursuits, the villages of Achao, Chonchi and Quinchao are UNESCO World Heritage sites and have prime examples of Chiloé’s unique architectural style. Each of the 24 rooms has large picture windows framing the views of either the inland sea or wetlands.
