Situated in the lush Catarpe Valley just outside San Pedro de Atacama, Alto Atacama is set against a strikingly remote backdrop; the Salt Mountain Range looms in the distance, blending in with the adobe-walled property and giving a sense of isolation despite being only a mile from town.

The hotel’s forty-two rooms are sprinkled throughout the property, and all are decorated in a harmonious earth palate, with regional touches like hand-woven blankets in vibrant reds and orange hues. Many have private terraces overlooking the meticulously cared-for gardens. Shared spaces include a cozy living room with a fireplace, an outdoor lounge to take in the gorgeous sunsets and the aforementioned gardens, lovingly referred to as the “Andean Park,” constructed as a tribute to the surrounding terrain. And of course, Alto has a roster of over 30 excursions, ranging from horseback-riding on the sand dunes to exploring the nearby Incan ruins.
