Tierra Atacama is a boutique hotel on the edge of San Pedro de Atacama. It was created by the Purcell family, long time owners and operators of the Portillo Ski Resort and Hotel, famous in Chile for its excellent skiing, food and warm hospitality. Like Portillo, Tierra Atacama provides guest experiences that combine outdoor adventure and sports with indoor comforts, hospitality and service.

The architecture, interiors, grounds and spa of Tierra Atacama were designed by Chilean professionals with an aim to preserving local cultural influences while also creating a place that speaks to guests, saying… relax, enjoy, share tales of your day’s adventure, sit back, laugh with friends, take a nap, savour your dinner and wine, wonder at the stars, and fill yourself with the awesome beauty of this unusual part of the earth.

Tierra Atacama’s rooms all have private terraces and views of the Licancabur volcano. The interior decoration is casually elegant in the neo-minimal style. Our decorators walked from village to village looking for the unique hand-made textiles and crafts to add authentic desert cultural pieces to each room.

Of the 32 rooms, 30 are designed for two people either in separate beds or together. We also have two Family Suites with two bedrooms and a living area, one bedroom sleeps two, the other sleeps four in bunks. All the rooms are equipped with wireless internet connections, central heating, safe, hair drier and telephone. Our beds and sheets will make an afternoon nap irresistible.

Tranquility reigns, as we do not have televisions in our rooms. Our intention is to help guests get away from the stresses of today’s world. Guests who would like to view programming may see TV in the hotel living area.


At Tierra Atacama our chef creates wonderful meals using healthy fresh ingredients of the area, such as quinoa, Andean potatoes and fresh herbs. We source the best beef and Chilean lamb, the freshest fish and seafood, the best of the seasonal fruits and vegetables, including from our own garden. Chile is a wonderful country for food with its long Pacific Ocean coast and its many excellent climatic zones for agriculture.

Our menus feature traditional Chilean and Andean dishes, which tend to be light and healthy. We also offer vegetarian dishes, as well as international cuisine.

Please enjoy our wine menu which is carefully selected to allow guests to taste the best wines of Chile, both little known vintages and the well-known Chilean labels.


At Tierra Atacama we invite our guests to gather in our living room, library or bar, or perhaps outside around the swimming pool, in the gardens or on the terrace. Our “living room” ambiance is casual and friendly, we want our guests to be comfortable in our common areas just as if they were in their own homes.

Before and after dinner the bar is a meeting place for old and new friends. If you haven’t been to Chile before, be sure to try Chile’s signature cocktail the pisco sour, or taste the Chilean wines by the glass or bottle.

For romantic or contemplative get-aways while staying on the hotel grounds, find one of the seats by one of the terrace firepits, or a chaise lounge next to the pool, or one of the outdoor canopied beds. Take a siesta or watch the brilliant stars, bask in peace and wonder.


Tierra Atacama Hotel and Spa has an adventure-spa philosophy. We believe our guests want to experience the outdoors actively and adventurously and then be welcomed back to the hotel with a variety of relaxing options ranging from a simple nap to one of our professional spa services.

The feeling of well-being is the reward… to enjoy washing the dirt off after a good hike, while thinking that the massage, pool, yoga or cocktail will be the enjoyable end of a very good day.

Those who want to skip the daily excursions can look for inner peace at the hotel… spend time in the Spa, the swimming pool, the library or choose tranquillity by stretching out on an outdoor bed, curling up with a book on the living room sofa, or closing your eyes in the privacy of your own room or terrace.
