Accommodations

Hotel Kosten Aike
Location
El Calafate, Argentina

Located in the center of charming El Calafate, Hotel Kosten Aike takes its name from the words kosten (wind) and aike (place), a nod to the frequent fresh winds of Patagonia. But its name is not the hotel's only tribute to indigenous Tehuelche culture: it is filled with the work of Argentine artists who have incorporated ancestral Tehuelche designs into every element of the property, including bedspreads, curtains, covers, ironwork and paintings, all of which exhibit the Tehuelches' exacting geometry and visual symbology. Rooms have extra-long beds, a small table and chairs, work desk, cable TV, mini bar, safe deposit box and Wi-Fi. An upper-level gym and spa under the eaves offers views of Lago Argentino as you walk on the treadmill or soak in the Jacuzzi. A sauna and massage services are also available. A buffet breakfast is served in the Ariskaiken restaurant, while the cozy Aura bar offers coffee and cocktails. The lobby lounge, warmed with heavy timbers, hardwood floors and a stone fireplace, offers comfortable seating plus tables and chairs for socializing.



Mirador del Lago
Location
El Calafate, Argentina

Optimally located in El Calafate, just outside the busy city center and across the road from sparkling blue Lago Argentino, Mirador del Lago exudes warmth, color and local character. Its interiors feature classic Patagonia design and decor, incorporating stone, heavy timbers, rich carpets and textiles, and large windows to showcase the view of the lake. Room amenities include elegantly crafted furniture made of local wood, choice of pillow, free Wi-Fi, cable TV, electronic safe, fridge and individually controlled heating. La Bahia restaurant serves gourmet regional cuisine with an artful flair, plus an outstanding breakfast buffet. A coffee shop and bar are also on site. 
EcoCamp Patagonia
Location
Torres del Paine National Park, Chile

Named by Time magazine as one of 100 of the World's Greatest Places and lauded by Travel + Leisure as one of the Best Hotels in the World, EcoCamp Patagonia enjoys global renown. The lodge opened in 2001, and from the outset, it has been a model for "green" lodging, providing industry leadership and innovation in sustainable practices and inspiring the opening of numerous similar properties worldwide. With energy powered by solar and hydro sources and composed of eco-friendly building materials, the camp's distinctive geodesic domes offer travelers warm, spacious accommodations in the heart of Chile's Torres del Paine National Park. The individual domed suites are inspired by the "leave no trace" huts of Chilean Patagonia's nomadic Kawesqar indigenous people. Tightly insulated for warmth and wind-resistance with skylight panels to add light, they offer broad territorial views of the surrounding peaks and an unparalleled immersion in nature. Interiors provide a cozy respite from the elements, with a low-emission wood stove to take the chill off. One double or two twin beds have polar fleece sheets and feather duvets to keep guests warm at night. An en suite bathroom has a basin, hot shower and state-of-the-art composting toilet. This unique accommodation is frequently cited by our travelers as one of the highlights of their Patagonian adventure.
Hotel Barlovento
Location 
Porvenir, Chile

Within walking distance of the heart of Porvenir, the former gold rush port town that is the small capital of Tierra del Fuego today, this simple hotel offers comfortable accommodations with proximity to King Penguin Park on Inutil Bay. Fifteen guest rooms have one queen or two twin beds, central heating, writing desk, free Wi-Fi, telephone, LCD cable TV, safe, and en suite bathrooms with toiletries and hair dryers. The on-site restaurant is well known locally for its menu of fresh seafood, gourmet pizzas and other specialties. 
La Yegua Loca
Location
Punta Arenas, Chile

Arguably Punta Arenas' most distinctive lodging, this boutique hotel is the realization of the creative vision of its founders, Paola Milosevic and Sergio Solar, whose grandparents were Croatian pioneers in Chilean Patagonia. Rehabilitating an old house built for the English court in 1929, they have created a sophisticated boutique hotel that pays homage to the multicultural traditions shaping the southern tip of Chile since the mid-1800s, when immigrants from Croatia, Russia, Ireland, Britain, Spain and elsewhere arrived to meld their cultures with the indigenous people living in the region.

Each of the inn's eight rooms is named and themed around a different trade that was important in Chilean Patagonia's early history: The Coachman, The Stable, The Leather Braider, The Orchard, The Milkman, The Blacksmith, The Carpenter and The Shearing Shed. Rooms are furnished with period antiques relevant to those pursuits, offering guests a taste of history along with a supremely comfortable stay. Located on the second and third floors of the house, rooms have panoramic views over the Strait of Magellan and colorful rooftops of Punta Arenas. Each is harmoniously decorated in a neutral palette of white and browns and has central heating, en suite bathroom with hair dryer and custom toiletries, super king-size or two double superior beds, Wi-Fi, telephone, desk, luggage storage and safe.

The restaurant on site, La Cocina de la Nonna, features Patagonian specialties with a Croatian flair, including roast lamb, gnocchi and grilled octopus. The Bar is a faithful reflection of traditional Patagonian pulperias: these were old warehouses used during the early colonial days as drinking establishments and purveyors of groceries and other products. That heritage is replicated at La Yegua Loca with local specialty cocktails such as the Pisco Sour and Ruibarbito, and artisan handicrafts, books and regional gourmet items for sale in the small shop on site. Or relax in the glass-enclosed Terraza, which offers inviting lounge space with territorial views in all directions.
