Tierra Hotels stands out among the top 15 in South America
The prestigious Condé Nast Traveler magazine unveiled its ranking of the Best Resorts in South America. Taking into account the opinions of over 520,000 readers, Tierra Atacama was highlighted as #6 in the region, and Tierra Chiloé secured the #9 spot.
“We are delighted to receive this significant recognition, which reflects the effort and dedication of our entire team at each of our hotels,” proudly stated Pablo Lundahl, General Manager of Tierra Hotels.
These awards distinguish the most outstanding players in the tourism industry, considering the complete guest experience, encompassing everything from hotel design, facilities, and location to service quality, culinary offerings, and available excursions.
The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry. The full list of winners can be found here.
Regarding Tierra Atacama, the publication highlights the following: “The Tierra brand has found a sweet spot creating otherworldly hotels in the middle of natural wonders, including rooms set alongside craggy mountains overlooking choppy bodies of water in Patagonia. But the Atacama property is undoubtedly the brand’s lodestar, with its cowhide rugs, mud-brick walls, and rattan daybeds. It’s tempting to just want to stay by the lap pool overlooking the sometimes-smoking Licancabur volcano.
But the excursions, led by the hotel’s incredibly well-informed guides, are the kind visitors won’t want to miss—whether that’s heading up to 14,000 feet pre-dawn to drink coca-leaf tea around natural geysers or stargazing with a local astronomer to see the Milky Way more clearly than anywhere else on the planet.”
This is what was said about the recognition of Tierra Chiloé: “This might be the coolest hotel in Chile. The 24-room property on the remote, southern island of Chiloé—about two hours by plane from Santiago—is an all-inclusive destination resort that does just about everything right, from traditional scratch-made apple tarts at breakfast to horseback riding along deserted stretches of coast to pisco sour cocktail hour.
Rooms have wide-angle views of the bay, sumptuous beds, and rainfall showers. There’s a communal lobby that feels more like a mountain lodge living room, with roaring fireplaces and wool blankets; the oversized hot tub is magical; plus there’s a brand new spa and pool.
But activities—as at all Tierra properties—are the special sauce here: Trekking through woodlands, visiting small farming communities to shop their produce markets, getting behind the scenes of restoration projects underway at UNESCO-protected wooden churches; sailing the waters off Chiloé in the hotel’s private yacht. Everything’s included, and guests are free to pick and choose from the menu of options—all the more reason to love this all inclusive.”
