Options in Patagonia

Jul 06, 2011 Avatar  TravelStore

Because visiting Torres del Paine Park in Chile on a South America vacation is all the rage, and getting good accommodations can be a challenge, we’re getting jazzed about the opening of a new hotel brand in Chilean Patagonia. Whether you choose to visit Chile, Argentina or both, there’s so much to do in these countries, from city slumming, fabulous wine vacations and nature explorations.

Patagonia is accessible, of course, from either country, and provides stunning landscapes and a lot of activities. But the resort accommodations have been limited, and during the peak season (our winter, their summer), it can be a problem, even with our connections, securing accommodations for our clients.

What’s coming to Chile is a new hotel brand called The Singular. Their first hotel opens in November, at the start of their peak season, and we’re already booking it. Their first Patagonia property will be in Puerto Bories, at the end of a sound called Ultima Esperanza, in what was once a meat packing plant (completely transformed, of course). The Singular will feature spacious rooms, the largest spa in Patagonia, a heated swimming pool, cooking classes and a wide variety of outdoor activities including hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, trekking, boating and more. Puerto Natales is a few miles close by, where there’s access to dining and shopping. Rates are inclusive of meals and activities here, and it should be added to our exclusive hotel program soon, assuring you bonus amenities during your visit.
