Tierra Patagonia Hotel & Spa is a luxurious resort that blends with the Chilean hills. Located at the entrance of Torres del Paine National Park in southern Patagonia, it offers a high-standard accommodation for travelers looking to explore the local lakes, glaciers and the magical Andes Mountains. Designed by Santiago-based Cazu Zegers, Roberto Benavente and Rodrigo Ferre, the hotel's aerodynamic silhouette lets the wind flow past.
Tierra Patagonia Hotel sits at Torres del Paine ‘s entrance, right at the edge of Sarmiento Lake. Its curved shape is inspired by old prehistoric fossils, and its organic aerodynamic silhouette was designed to embrace the strong Patagonian winds. It was built with local natural materials like native lenga  wood and widely available stones.
The essence of the interior decoration aims to be authentically Patagonian with cozy handcrafted furnishing and local textures. It holds 40 guest rooms, a living room, bar area, TV and a dining space. Wi-Fi is available only in the public areas, around the fireplaces and the spa. Measuring 197-foot long, Tierra Patagonia Hotel offers luxurious accommodations  emerging from the bast Andes Mountains .
