Hotel Overview

Sense of place

The AWA Hotel is located in Puerto Varas, a city in Southern Chile’s Lake District, in close proximity to the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes and by the shores of Lake Llanquihue, which is only 20 km from the hotel.

Rooms at AWA Hotel

Floor-to-ceiling windows are a running theme throughout Awa Hotel, giving it a light, airy feel wherever you go. The rooms are no exception and you can wake up to panoramic views of the snow-capped volcanos and the lake. The décor is rustic but chic, with wooden accents and a cosy fireplace to warm up by. Luxuriate in your own whirlpool for a spot of indulgence.

Food & Drink

A new menu is created by the innovative chefs on site using locally-sourced, seasonal produce that is mostly grown in the hotel’s orchard, so expect only the freshest ingredients at AWA. Enjoy a glass of Chilean wine with each meal, all mostly made by independent vineyards.


Spanning 2,400 square feet, AWA's opulent spa was designed with the five elements in mind: Water (represented by the lake and rain), Fire (the volcanic force), Earth (the natural surroundings), Wood (the nearby groves) and Metal (minerals present in the zone). With a semi-Olympic heated pool (with two lanes), sauna, hamman, whirlpool and double massage cabin for couples, it is truly the height of luxury. 

Activities at AWA Hotel

Nature and culture buffs will love exploring the picturesque city of Puerto Varas; take a trip to the Calbuco and Orsono volcanoes, through the evergreen forests by the clear blue waters of Lake Llanguihue, meander down the scenic alleyways with houses of German architecture dating back to the mid-19th century. This region is also renowned for water-based activities like fly-fishing, kayaking and rafting and you can also go on guided cultural excursions to learn more about the indigenous culture of the region, as well as bird-watching adventures to discover the wildlife in the area.
