About Tierra Atacama
Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. Architecturally, this hotel is superb, mixing the old and the unashamedly modern. Built on the site of the old cattle corral, it retains the corral's ancient adobe walls at its entrance, preserving them as a monument to the history of the area.
But beyond those traditional walls, the design is a thoroughly modern take on traditional themes. Stone walls support angular, asymmetric buildings, where slick roof lines stand above huge expanses of glass - whilst the beautifully landscaped gardens hide an abundance of water features and secret relaxation areas.
Inside, the hotel is an uber-modern version of rustic chic, were clean lines are softened by colourful local fabrics, stripped back wooden floors and designer furniture. The rooms continue the theme, offering spacious, uniquely styled accommodation packed with luxurious designer touches. Local cultural influences are in evidence throughout, whilst daily excursions to sample local landscapes, culture and wildlife are included.
