Hotel Description

The Cumbres hotel sits at the edge of the ancient oasis town of San Pedro de Atacama, which also puts it at the edge of the vast salt flats that span some 3,000 square miles in the middle of the world’s driest desert. It’s not the most immediately obvious location for a hospitality venture, this inhospitable landscape, but if you’re going to take a vacation that in some ways resembles a mission to Mars, stellar vistas and all, there’s a certain logic in choosing a hotel with a setting at the edge of what looks like the last outpost of civilization.

It’s a particularly auspicious setting in Chile, where practicing the highest forms of hospitality in genuinely extreme environments is a national speciality. The high-design, low-impact Cumbres hotel is an excellent example. Each of its sixty outsize rooms comes with a private terrace and an outdoor shower. The designers take their decorative cues from ancient indigenous tradition, using an abundance of stone and rough-hewn wood that brings the colors of the desert indoors. Of course the glass walls help in that department, too, proof that Cumbres San Pedro isn’t slavishly traditional where it doesn’t need to be. Also in the non-traditional category: a surprisingly good cocktail program, a full stock of top Chilean wines and a spa that puts another spin on the notion of an oasis in the desert, its seemingly endless pools and jacuzzis and saunas the perfect balm after a few days exploring the outdoors.

Stare long enough at the landscape in the distance, even from the comfort of a padded poolside sun lounger under the shade of a carob tree, and you’ll want to do some exploring. Whether you just want to drive across the salt flats or take a rigorous climb up a high-altitude volcano, there’s an expert staff of guides to make it happen.

How to get there:

Cumbres San Pedro is approximately 60 miles from El Loa International Airport. Please contact CustomerService@TabletHotels.com for assistance with airport transfers.
