Altiplanico’s unique design was inspired by the adobe style of traditional Chilean altiplano villages. On the outskirts of oasis town San Pedro de Atacama, the hotel looks out over the majestic Licancabur Volcano. The hotel’s 29 rooms are a mix of singles, doubles, triples and family rooms. Set in individual houses, each individually styled room features minimalistic décor with small windows and thick adobe walls protecting guests from the intense heat of the day and any cold night chills. Modern facilities in each room include Wifi, a private bathroom and an outdoor terrace to enjoy the area’s striking views. Upgraded superior rooms also feature an outdoor shower for guests to enjoy the natural calm of the Atacama Desert.
The Altiplanico restaurant and bar serves a varied menu which mixes Peruvian, Chilean and Atacameñan dishes. Typical local ingredients include quinoa, purple potatoes, scallops, chañar and Indian corn. After spending the day exploring this enchanting area, relax at the hotel’s bar with a soundtrack provided by local musicians. The town of San Pedro de Atacama is nearby, with a great selection of restaurants offering warming fires to combat the evening chill.
