Opened in 1998, the lodge is situated on 17 hectares (42 acres) of grounds just a few minutes´walk from the town of San Pedro de Atacama. In the area surrounding the lodge, the hotel has maintained the ancient pathways and buildings which form a labyrinth that invites exploration.

There are 50 rooms housed in three long buildings, positioned to form a central square planted with large trees for ample shade. On the fourth side of the square is the building which houses the lodge´s public spaces. The views from the lodge´s broad terraces enable you to enjoy Atacama´s vast chain of volcanic mountains. The rooms are tastefully designed with wooden ceilings and floors made of stone and tiles. Each has a small living area, a hydromassage bath and beds designed for deep, pleasurable sleep after a day of exploration.

Tulur rooms: There are 16 rooms measuring 33 mt² (355 ft²), all with views of the Cordillera de la Sal.

Yali rooms: There are 34 rooms measuring 33 mt² (355 ft² ), all with views of the countryside.

Catur Suites: There are 4 suites measuring 50 mt² (538 ft²), all with balconies and views of the countryside.

Observatory: In early 2008 the hotel opened their own observatory so as to incorporate this experience into their explorations.
