Hallowed surf spot
Bohemian surf lodge Hotel Alaia is nestled amid the grass-tufted dunes at Punta de Lobos, the most famous surf spot in northern Chile. Three hours from Santiago, this rugged stretch of coastline is sought for its consistent swells and long, left-breaking waves, which are often said to be the best in South America. Now, this stretch of beachfront has the final feather in its cap – a hotel worthy of the design-savvy surfer. The rooms are styled with rustic minimalism, featuring polished concrete floors and timber walls that sit easily with the landscape, showing deference to the mighty Pacific. Most guests spend as much time as they can in the ocean, but the other diversions include yoga classes, wood-fired hot tubs and an ocean-facing restaurant that serves first-rate seafood and fine Chilean wine, all of it sourced within 65 miles of the hotel.
