Torres del Paine luxury

As I mentioned a while back on a round-up of new hotels in Latin America, Chile has really been coming on strong with new luxury hotels and resorts. It’s a testament to their strong economy and rising tourism numbers.

One of the most impressive developments has been the opening of Tierra Patagonia, sister hotel to the Tierra Atacama one that’s been open a few years. This low-slung resort is modest from a distance and blends into the landscape. Looking out from it to Torres del Paine though, you get a spectacular view.

Our contributor Jill Robinson is an experienced, you might even say jaded travel writer. She’s posted stories and hotel reviews from all over the world. But this place left her speechless.

“Wow…” I’d comment and then trail off.

“Pretty?” he’d ask, with a smirk, knowing what I was thinking. To be honest, that’s about the only vocabulary you need.

There are only 40 rooms in this luxury retreat and prices start at two grand per person for a three-day stay. This is one of those resorts where “luxury” means pampering and spa treatments, but it also means exclusivity and a view you’ll never forget. And naturally you’ll enjoy good Chilean wine with your expertly prepared meals.
