Awasi Patagonia

Awasi Patagonia is in a private reserve with impressive views of the Torres del Paine and Lake Sarmiento. A thick native forest of Lenga and Ñire trees protects the chosen location from the strong Patagonian winds. The native fauna remains protected in these forests where herds of guanaco, nandu, foxes, condors and the occasional puma can be spotted. Awasi Patagonia's strategic location allows you to enjoy the Torres del Paine National Park from the intimacy of our private reserve.

Inspired by old Patagonian shelters and estate "outposts," they have built just 12 villas on the reserve (one of them with two suites), placed in such a way that each one enjoys great intimacy and the best views of the forest, Lake Sarmiento and the Torres del Paine. The common areas, with the restaurant, the reception, and pleasant lounge areas, are only a few meters from the villas. The project was designed by Chilean architect Felipe Assadi. Construction was based on native woods, allowing the structures to blend in with their natural surroundings.

Each of the villas has a surface area of 80 square meters (860 sq ft) including a living room, wood burning stove and hot tub. The villas were designed to capture incredible views from every angle.

History of Awasi Patagonia:
At the end of the 19th century, a British explorer called Florence Dixie arrived in Patagonia, attracted by the unexplored mysteries of that faraway corner of the world. At the time there was no other way to visit these lands but on horseback, meaning that trips involved arduous days traveling through areas that had only been explored by the nomadic indigenous groups that lived in the area. Miss Dixie's travelogue brilliantly describes the views, the nature and the landscape of the territory that was to become one of South America's most attractive natural parks almost a century later: TORRES DEL PAINE. Awasi Patagonia built their small lodge in a private reserve at the same location where Florence Dixie camped and with the same majestic views of Torres del Paine that captivated her over 140 years ago. Where they continue their mission to provide memorable travel experiences and highlight details of the culture and nature of one of South America's most attractive destinations. 

What our guests had to say about Awasi Patagonia: 
"We loved everything about AWASI: the food, the setting, the villas, the staff, you name it. It could not have been improved upon. Of course, to get to anywhere in the park we had to drive a bit further than folks staying at a place like Explora, but we all decided that the extra 15-30 minutes of driving was a small price to pay for the AWASI experience." -Charles S.  Wildland alumni traveling on a custom trip to Patagonia
