Hotel Overview

Sense of Place

Tierra Atacama Hotel & Spa is at the edge of the bohemian village San Pedro de Atacama, beneath the majestic Andes.

Rooms at Tierra Atacama

Wake up to the blissful silence of the Atacama Desert and begin your day with an invigorating shower on your private terrace. Each of the rooms at Tierra Atacama either gazes over the Lincancabur volcano or shows off magnificent views of the sunset over the salt mountains, and all are uniquely styled with charming Andean detail.

Food & Drink

Taking into consideration the climate and the high altitude, the chefs use the best local produce and inspiring ingredients from the hotel’s garden to bring you light and nourishing Chilean flavours with a twist.

Don't forget to try a craft beer or the hotel's signature Rica Rica Sour cocktail at the bar and if you're feeling peckish, ask for it to be accompanied by a taster board of select cheeses and handmade empanadas. For the sweet-toothed, a slice of kuchen cake goes perfectly with tea or freshly-brewed coffee.


The spa is there to cocoon you when you return from your day of exploring, with a Turkish bath and complete range of treatments that use restorative volcanic elements. There's also a Jacuzzi and infinity pool to soak your muscles in while taking in the views of the Atacama Desert and the Licancabur Volcano. 

Activities at Tierra Atacama

If you are seeking adventure amidst the otherworldly landscapes, then you can take a trek or a horse ride through the Valle de la Luna, swim in a crystalline lagoon, or even climb the 6,000-metre volcano. Let the hotel's expert guides help you create a bespoke itinerary for your exploration of the Atacama Desert. They will help you discover rivers, lakes, green canyons, geysers, sand dunes, hot springs, ancient art sites, salt caves and salt lakes that are home to flamingos.

Stargazing is fantastic here, but it is worth noting that although the evenings are as important as the day times here in the Atacama, stargazing can be massively affected by a full moon.
