Swimming pool area
The lodge has an extensive patio area totaling 1,700 meters2 (18,298 feet2). Within this area are four interconnected, outdoor swimming pools, two of them heated by solar panels. So, for those looking for the best Atacama hotels let us just add that in addition, we have saunas, steam baths, heated open-air jacuzzis and a self-service bar. This area has beautiful views. The deep silence is broken now and then by the songs of local birds.
“Turi Puri” massage room
About 200 meters (656 feet) from the lodge is a colonial adobe building which we have restored. After a tiring day of exploration or simply for the pleasure of it, you may come here and place yourself in the gifted hands of our experienced masseuse.
In “Turi Puri”, which in Kunza means “House of Water”, you can enjoy various types of massage with essential oils, such as therapeutic, relaxing or energizing. This is a peaceful place to restore your energy and awaken your senses.
Campo de Cúcuter
About 7 kilometers (4 miles) south of the lodge in the Ayllu de Cúcuter we have 7 hectares (17 acres) of land with chañar forest, alfalfa fields and a beautiful view of Licancabur volcano. On winter days, after a morning of exploration, we often lunch here so we can continue exploring in the afternoon.
Quincho (barbecue area)
Just 50 meters (164 feet) from the lodge building, we renovated an old adobe house and created a large central patio where on some nights we gather with guests to eat spit-roasted lamb and barbecued meat and fish.
Meanwhile, local artists perform music and dance which are typical of the area. You are welcome to join in, if you wish.
In the shop located in the lodge building you can purchase a variety of products, special clothing and gear for exploring, as well as books, handicrafts and jewelry.
