A captivating landscape of glaciers, lakes and mountains is the setting for this unique hotel in the middle of Torres del Paine National Park (a Unesco biosphere reserve). Overlooking the sapphire waters of Lake Pehoé with stunning views of the Paine Massif, the hotel features calming interiors within its striking architectural envelope, plus hydromassage baths to unwind after a day exploring. The activities offered include daily guided treks and boat trips to the Grey glacier. Or head to 2 de Enero ranch, the resort’s 14,830-acre equine facility, to explore on horseback — you’ll easily spot the Salto Chico waterfall the hotel is named after.
