Patagonia, at the southern tip of South America, is undeniably one of the most beautiful parts of the world, with scenery that could actually make us forget to check our email. But not all of us want to experience the best that Mother Earth has to offer from the inside of a tent. And now, pampered adventure travelers won't have to with the debut of Tierra Chiloé, due to open on September 1.
Tierra Chiloé, formerly the Refugia hotel, is located the banks of the Rilan Peninsula in South Chilean Patagonia. With just 12 rooms, the hotel sits unobtrusively low on a hilltop while taking full advantage of the views to the Andes Mountains and the (dormant) Corcovado volcanoes in the distance.
But all you hair-drying, TV watching, bath-soaking guests take note--the hotel was designed to operate almost entirely off the grid, not that there were many other options given the location.
All this week, we’ll be trekking across the globe with HotelChatter contributor Eric Rosen as he tells us about the most exciting new glamping experiences out there. From the savannahs of Africa to the shores of Western Australia to the peaks of Patagonia, this is a full-fledged, five-star adventure to the most thrilling and luxurious camping resorts in the world.
Patagonia. That mysterious and exotic land at the end of the earth. Even the name conjures up the sense of adventure. Few places on earth boast natural settings that are more pristine and awe-inspiring. So naturally, this is one of the natural habitats for glamping.
Today, we’re going to take you to the shores of Lake Toro, near the famous gnarled spires of the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia to visit a luxury experience like no other: Patagonia Camp.
West Coast web media princess, and the latest Jaunted Embed, Shira Lazar created a glorious on-the-fly Chile travel guide for Jaunted using as much point oh social webbing as she could. She also took the time to suss out the 5 can't miss, of the moment hotels in Chile.
We are suckers for a room with a killer view. We find that we are even more likely to forgive some minor hotel inconveniences if we can stare out the window at something pretty--yeah we are that shallow. Let's help out our fellow hotel mavens by uploading rooms with killer views to the HotelChatter/Flickr photo pool, or by sending the photo along to us. We will feature our favorites in this space from time to time. Remember to tell us the name of the hotel and the room number of the hot view.
Look at this freaking view. No, just look at it.
Can you imagine sipping some tea with your feet up in your hotel room staring out at that view? The clear skies, the blue water it looks like a fantasy world.
This is the view from the Explora Hotel Salto Chico on the shore of Lake Pehoé in Patagonia, right in Torres del Paine Park, which was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. The location is pretty remote you fly from Santiago to Punta Arenas, and then an Explora staffer will meet you at the airport and drive you to the hotel; the trip takes about 5 hours from Santiago. But, um, it's worth it, dontchya think?
The hotel develops "explorations" for guests; each day, you get your pick of 5 different explorations (which have been designed/selected according to the weather, duration and difficulty). Room rates include those explorations, airport transportation and three meals per day, but the all-inclusive-awesomeness will cost you: rates start at $2,660 for a four-night stay. Check out all the info you need here. Or just continue gazing at this picture.

We just found this hotel through the Tablet Hotels application on Facebook (oh yeah, we're into that!) and we wanna go like right now.
Hotel Indigo is located in the Chilean part of Patagonia in Puerto Natales. It's a bit difficult to get to but probably worth it.
The 29-room hotel offers super killer views of the Last Hope Fjord and is close to the Torres del Paine park. But what's really great about this hotel is that it's practically architectural eye candy and stylish inside to boot. Not something you would usually expect from a hotel in Patagonia.
The hotel has wireless internet, a spa, a restaurant and lounge bar and a hammock in the lobby. We love hammocks here. But the bestest part is the price. Room rates start at $160--totally reasonable for such a cool hotel.
