In the ancient Quechua language, Wara, means “star.” When you step outside of your warm, cozy villa and look up into the clearest night skies in the world, you will not only see a sea of stars, you’ll see planets and the milky way. Wara offers a rare glimpse into the vastness of the our universe, all from the comforts of a luxurious desert hotel.
When you first arrive at Wara, seemingly a beautiful mirage in the middle of the desert, you feel an overwhelming sense of happiness and peace, as the hotel is designed and built with earth elements in traditional adobe style. Its awe-inspiring décor crafted by local artisans, rugs & textiles hand-woven and dyed by Coya women, its Cypress bones repurposed from 1800s telegraph posts in Patagonia, all give Wara a unique cultural story living within its walls.
What they refer to as a Villa feels more like a Home as each lies within its own privacy fence that even includes a comfy outdoor sitting area. When you step into your spacious villa, your warm welcome comes in the form of a cozy wood-burning fireplace. For pure relaxation, enjoy a tranquil massage in the spa, spend the evening under the stars in the fire-heated stone Jacuzzi, or simply enjoy a delicious Chilean meal and settle into your cozy couch with a great book. Journey deep into the Sea of Dunes for an unforgettable gourmet picnic. There is something for everyone at Wara - whether you’re a pair of lovers, a group of friends reconnecting, or a solo wide-eyed wanderer … from adventure, to romance, to pure relaxation, your desert escape awaits, deep in the enchanting wilds of the Atacama.
