Merging into the hillside overlooking the Ultima Esperanza Gulf and the Baquedano Glacier, Altiplanico Sur in Puerto Natales offers an experience that combines the awe inspiring nature and the interior charm of the Altiplanico style. The hotel features 22 uniquely designed rooms with the stunning Patagonian landscape as your guest, sheltering you from the powerful climate and inviting you to relax in a hot tub overlooking the cold waters of this southern latitude.
The Altiplanico Sur Hotel is roofed with grass, grass bricks cover the exterior walls (as used by the first settlers), and is nestled in the natural hillside following the coastline. These external features give the feeling of the hotel merging with nature, without altering the landscape and decreasing the visual impact.
The hotel features 22 spacious double and triple rooms, all with a spectacular view to El Seno de Ultima Esperanza. They have phone, safe, laundry, private bathroom and central heating. The concept favors beauty over luxury so the decoration is simple, refined and cozy. Throughout the hotel the objective is clear and well achieved; the passenger must be able to enjoy silence with privileged views from a private space. Despite that basic design and overlooking views are equal in every room; they have been decorated differently so that passengers will feel at home rather than in a hotel.
The restaurant opens at night, along with the bar in which every day there is happy hour and good music to relax after having faced the extreme climate of Patagonia. A single menu consisting of entrée, main course, dessert and coffee, in addition to a small bottle of wine or juice, all served with delicacy and elegance is available for the passenger to enjoy Patagonian food specialties. The menu varies daily, weekly. The food is an inspirited mixture of Peruvian, Chilean, French and regional food. The resulting meal is a product of high quality, surprising for its variety and difference. The Patagonian region boasts about its splendid products; king crab, austral merles, patagonian scallops, conger, salmon, chilean abalones, patagonian meats and lamb. This speaks of surprising meals, more the less if accompanied by good Chilean wine or pisco sour!
PUERTO NATALES - Puerto Natales is the doorway to beautiful natural landscapes. If you visit it by sea you will have an unforgettable experience sailing to the Balmaceda and Serrano glaciers, to the seven glaciers located in the mountain channel and the glaciers of the south Patagonia ice fields, where the biggest one in South America is located. This is the Pio XI, in the Bernardo O´Higgins National Park, where the last Alacalufes or Kawesqar people lived in their canoes. In the surroundings, some ranches offer you to take part in their labor tasks and enjoy barbecues and parrilladas, horseback riding and walks. If your goal is trout fishing, the adequate places are the Hollemberg River, the Diana Lagoon and the Balmaceda lake.
