Your hotel

Chile’s Atacama Desert has an otherworldly beauty reminiscent of Mars’ red vistas. You’ll stay at Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa, a luxurious hideaway in prime position for exploring lunar valleys and flamingo-roamed salt flats.
 

Alto blends into its surroundings and has gardens mimicking local flora. Within, it’s Incan in style, with desert-inspired dining, a geothermal spa, open-air observatory and even a llama enclosure, to give a true sense of place. For a hot take on Chile’s most beguiling beauty spot, read our insider guide on WordSmith.
