“Awasi projects a cozy, yet plush, feeling, in harmony with the area, making you imagine you’re a guest at a northern Chile getaway of well-heeled friends from Santiago. Unlike Explora, its more famous and much larger neighbor down the road, Awasi’s tidy size and circular layout encourage you to mingle with other visitors and have the run of the house, so to speak, while coaxing you also to steal away to secluded spots for a catnap or tête-à-tête on plump white sofas, set off with colorful handmade Andean textiles.”
