Hotel Salto Chico


Hotel Salto Chico

Our lodge is located right at the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in central Patagonia. The varied and untouched landscapes of this area led UNESCO to declare it a biosphere reserve. Our Patagonia hotel lodge opened in 1993 on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name. The lodge has 49 rooms and a variety of inviting spaces. Situated on a 3-hectare (7.4-acre) site, the design borrows certain organic forms from the landscape itself, adapting to it with simple elegance. It was designed to create a dialogue with its environment, putting human beings in touch with the sublimity of their surroundings. For Patagonia travel, the lodge provides the welcome surprise of comfort in a remote area; nonetheless, you are not isolated from nature, but placed “within” it.

Each of our lodges is designed around the concept of luxury of the essential.

To be in a very remote area - even if it is just for a few days - is an unusual experience. Our goal is to identify the essence of each moment of your stay so that we can offer exactly what you need to make your travel experience more pleasurable and memorable.

Our lodges are welcoming and invite you to stay in touch with your surroundings, rather than isolating you from them. By doing so, you can enjoy more profoundly the different facets of being in a remote area. We always favor balance and originality in both our lodge facilities and our cuisine. Meals are made with the highest-quality ingredients, many of them locally produced.For us, luxury is in the simple details, which are never superfluous.
