You are very well taken care of every step of the way, and the guides for your excursions are fantastic, really customizing the experience to what you want to...

The client experience is such a clear priority at Awasi. From the moment we were met at the airport by our amazing guide, then entering the property to a warm welcome from the manager and being presented with a refreshing rika rika lemonade it just continued on. The room was terrific. The food amazing - clever, tasty and healthy. The...

As almost every review you have likely read gives the Awasi 5 star ratings, my rating is absolutely no different! A Relais et Chateaux property, it lives up to all that you expect from their properties and what is special about the Awasi is that it is not in your face luxury but instead nicely assimilates with the town and...

Wonderful oasis resort in the charming village of San Pedro de Atacama. I had not realised it was actually in the village or that is a very popular backpacker destination.
