The hotel is a hub for gastronomic events, while Explorer’s Bar remains a meeting place coming with full bar services. Adding to the list is Spa-Ona which provides with essential oil massaging specially designed to relax explorers, who go hiking through the pampas, mountains and glaciers.

Address: Camino Publico Pisco Elqui a Horcón, Km 3.5, Paihuano, Región de Coquimbo, Chile
Rooms:11 with 3 room type: family, superior and standard.
This hotels holds a distinct concept, for it comes with 7 geodesic domes whose roofs can be removed and 4 stilted wooden houses whose ceilings are transparent with glasses. All of this quirkiness is set in stunning beauty of Elqui Valley, famous for its clear skies attracting astronomers from across the world.
The rooms are small and compact with a feeling of intimacy offering a treat of the cosmo world. Build in 2003, this idea striked businessman and astronomer Esteban Zarate when he spotted a star shaped gap roaming around in the market.
While the stars sleeping tight, the visitors can hope on their bikes or horses to admire the astronomical beauty in contrast to the dusty and brown mountains. The poolside too offers the novices of the skies full of stars. The glowing pink sunset, and stellar food are just another compliment to the vacation.
Address: Sector San José, Castro, Región de los Lagos, Chile
Built in the mystical beauty of the forgotten Chilean island populated by tiny villages, this remote area remains occupied by the artisan community. Set on the peninsula, this architectural brilliance creates a false image of floating over the pasture.
The structure was designed to imitate the landscape as well a tradition of the island’s homes. Built in 2012, the conifer, beech and the larch woods were used to craft a cosy view for the visitors.
The hotel becomes welcoming with its appeal for the private beach, penguins, an islet boat tour and horse rides along the countryside.
