Located in the Chiloé Archipelago off the coast of Chile, Tierra Chiloé pairs quintessential island lifestyle with modern comfort. Each of the 24 rooms is a peaceful oasis from the ever-changing weather of the island, making the lodge the ideal launchpad for your adventures in Chile.
Life at Tierra Chiloe Hotel and Spa
As you stroll through Tierra Chiloe hotel and spa, you’ll spot locally woven fabrics and hand-crafted furniture, all selected to highlight the culture and heritage of Chiloé. But, no matter where you are within the lodge, the views are the stars of the show. Panoramic windows in the guest rooms and restaurant afford unspoiled Pacific Ocean views.
After waking to watch the sunrise over the ocean from the comfort of your bed, head to Uma Spa. Heated stone floors lead the way to two heated pools, a sauna, and treatment rooms. Indulge in a massage or a body wrap using local ingredients. Afterward, spend the afternoon gazing out at the Pullao wetland views from a lounge chair.
Whether you spent the day relaxing or exploring your surroundings, the evening brings a special treat. The lodge’s farm-to-table restaurant features all the best the local fishing village has to offer. Sample mussels, sea urchins, fresh bread. Not to be missed is the local specialty, curanto. Meat, potatoes, and sausage are slowly cooked atop hot rocks placed in a hole in the earth. Potato bread is added, and the ingredients are covered with nalca leaves to produce steam. The result is a delicious peek into local life that you aren’t likely to experience anywhere else.
Tierra Chiloe Excursions
Tierra Chiloe offers an endless array of outdoor activities designed to help you discover the beauty of this off-the-beaten-path destination. If you like seafood, choose a half-day trip to collect clams and other sea life. This authentic experience showcases the way of life of the local community and connects you to the foods you will enjoy at the lodge.
If you prefer to explore on horseback, a half-day trip takes you over countryside fields and farmland towards the village of San Jose. While riding on the beach, you may even spot dolphins. Finally, lace up your hiking boots for a full-day trek to explore three different sea, sand, and forest landscapes. While walking across sand dunes and through native forests, you will enjoy views of rugged cliffs and the ocean beyond. You will even cross through the abandoned Quilan Estate.
Once a gold panning site and the area’s most important sheep ranch, the estate was destroyed in a 1960 earthquake. With biking, hiking, and cultural excursions available, you will find more than enough to pack your schedule. The lodge’s expert guides will assist in selecting the best activities to suit your interests and fitness level.
Sustainability at Tierra Chiloe Chile
Tierra Chiloe hotel and spa is dedicated to protecting and preserving the biodiversity of the Rilán Peninsula. The lodge is a low-impact building created with innovative construction methods and efficient technologies. To prevent energy loss, the geometric structure is oriented so that light and heat are absorbed through thermopanel windows.
Likewise, natural cross ventilation cools and freshens the air while preventing excess energy usage. All of this is done while maximizing the visual appeal of the building. The eye-catching architecture is inspired by the stilted palafitos homes in the nearby fishing villages and was constructed with the help of local community members, many of whom still work at the lodge.
There is something for everyone at Tierra Chiloe. Couples will fall for the deep-soak tubs and Chilean-wool slippers in the suites. At the same time, parents and multi-generational travelers will appreciate the ten interconnecting rooms which can form family apartments sleeping up to six guests. What memories will you make at Tierra Chiloe?
