Chile's Best Boutique Abodes

Posted: 24/06/2013 16:10

It's hard to pick a destination spot in a country that claims over a million square kilometres of Antarctica. With such a vast selection of climates and cultures, Chile offers a slice of South America that is infinitely varied. So here at Black Tomato we suggest taking a look at what's on the inside, as well as what's on the outside. Alongside a rich cultural heritage, dazzling landscapes, effervescent urban metropolises and rich cuisine, Chile lays claim to some of the world's most unique hotels. And after a day of mountain hiking or desert sand-boarding, browsing authentic foods at city markets or exploring the some of America's most exquisite flora and fauna, any ardent traveller is going to need somewhere special to rest their head.

Whether it's a guest room designed on locally grown, world-renowned wine, or cocktails served at a Jacuzzi hidden within the depths of Santiago's artistic quarter, here are Chile's most niche hotels lined up. This summer, it's all about the great indoors...

Wine connoisseurs, or simply enthusiastic drinkers, prepare to be dazzled by Lapostelle Residence, which takes ‘local wine’ to an entirely new level. Situated in the centre of Chile’s Colchagua Valley, home to the vineyards of various world renowned wines, the hotel boasts dazzling views. Making the most of its unique location, each guest room is named and designed on a local wine. Meanwhile every dish on the restaurant’s menu is made and matched with a bespoke Colchagua wine. Step outside and you can pick up a mountain bike and tour the vineyards, or make like Chilean cowboys, Huegas, and travel on horseback.
