If you’re about to visit the Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia, you might be wondering about accommodation. In terms of where to stay in Torres del Paine, there are not too many hotels in the park itself.
On the other hand, although there is a limited amount of accommodation available, there’s something for every budget in Torres del Paine.
Some of the accommodation listed here is inside the park, and some hotels are just outside of its borders.

What to know about staying in Torres del Paine
Just a couple of things that I want to mention before listing the hotels in Torres del Paine.
First, it’s mandatory to book your lodging in Torres del Paine, even if you plan to stay in a campsite in your own tent. Yes, even then.
If you’re going on the W or O treks, you must have lodging booked, it’s mandatory. The campsites in Torres del Paine are quite good but know that they get booked out quickly.
Second, if you can’t find a place or can’t afford to stay in Torres del Paine itself, you can try and look into places to stay in Puerto Natales. Punta Arenas, in my opinion, is too far for day trips.
But ok, let’s dive into the hotels!
Luxury lodging in Torres del Paine
Very nice rooms, amenities, spa, and view. Even though it’s a national park, you can find accommodation in Torres del Paine which will make you feel like you’re in the best of the resorts.
Some of the lodges even offer private guides to you!
You’ll pay the price for it, but, if it’s within your budget, a luxury hotel in Torres del Paine would definitely make the stay even more amazing.
Here are some of the luxury lodges near and in Torres del Paine.
The Southernmost Relais & Chateaux hotel in the world, Awasi Patagonia is set not far from Torres del Paine, with views of the Torres del Paine mountain range, the Patagonian steppe and the lake Sarmiento.
There are 14 luxury cabins available on Awasi Patagonia’s private reserve, situated in such a way that you can enjoy the amazing views, but still, have privacy.
Each cabin comes with its own personal guide and a 4×4 vehicle. You can plan your own itinerary with the help of a guide and enjoy excursions at your own pace.
After a day of hiking off the beaten trails, enjoy soaking in your private hot tub or have a drink by the fire. Every day, enjoy exquisite meals in the hotel restaurant, whose menu was created by chef Federico Ziegler.
The rates are all-inclusive, and include the cabin, meals (breakfast, lunch, appetiser and dinner), drinks (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic), private guides and tours and private transfers to and from Puerto Natales and Cerro Castillo.
Located by the scenic Sarmiento lake, Tierra Patagonia hotel and spa offers all-inclusive rates for 3, 4 or 5 nights.
There’s a spa with a steam room, sauna, heated pool, hydromassage tub and an outdoor hot tub. The pool looks beautiful – there’s an inside infinity pool with a panoramic view of the wild surroundings. Maybe you’ll even spot a guanaco or a fox?
If you wish to have some SPA treatments, you can get them for an extra charge – there are massage sessions and facial and body treatments with stones and natural elements available. The treatment rooms have aromatherapy oils, peaceful sounds and soft lighting. There’s even a yoga studio available in the hotel.
From the outside, the hotel blends in with the nature around it, and from the inside, it has a light and lovely minimalistic-inspired décor with light wood furnishings, elegant chairs, and rugs. All rooms are equipped with heating and feature baths.
As with other luxury hotels in Torres del Paine, Tierra Patagonia offers tours to its guests in and around the park. There are hiking, biking, horse-riding, scenic voyages and “special interests” like bird watching, kayaking, and fly fishing tours available.
Of course, the meals are included in the price of the stay. They offer Patagonian cuisine – an irresistible mix of hearty stews, slow-cooked soups and tasty dishes, sourced from the nearby estancias surrounding our lodge. The drinks are also included.
One thing that I really like about Tierra Patagonia is that they are big on sustainability. During the building of the hotel, they removed all the fauna, kept it in greenhouses, and then replanted it around the hotel.
Some of the excursions provided are about the native life in Patagonia, like tours to estancias, sharing Patagonian asado, and horseback riding through the pampas with gauchos.
Patagonia’s original luxury lodge. It’s located in the heart of Torres del Paine by lake Pehoe and offers spectacular views of the Paine Massif and the “Torres” and also the Salto Chicco waterfall. The hotel offers all-inclusive packages for three nights and more.
The incredible location offers access to some of the best tours in the park. Plus, they have their own stables with horses and a private catamaran can take you to the French Valley and close to the Glaciar Grey.
There are more than 40 tours available, including hiking or horseback riding. There are group tours for small groups – one to eight people.
Explora Patagonia has a heated, covered pool, a sauna, and four open-air hot tubs just steps away from the Paine River. There is also a massage room where you can enjoy a massage.
Of course, since the rate is all-inclusive, you have meals and drinks provided. The meals are local and are made to provide enough nutrition to satisfy you after a day of hiking.
The rooms in the hotel do not have TV or wifi, which are available in the common rooms. That is done on purpose so that you can “plug off” and really relax during your stay in the Torres del Paine national park.
Located in the more Southern part of Torres del Paine, close to the centre of the park, the hotel and spa Rio Serrano offers views of the Paine massif and the Serrano River.
The hotel offers both standard and all-inclusive rates. The all-inclusive rates come with a full board and excursions included. It also includes transfers with fixed times,
The full board provided is breakfast, lunch, and dinner, with soft drinks and house wine by the glass. But there’s also an open bar where you can get everything except premium liquors, wines, and beers.
Excursions are by the calendar and have a bilingual guide. Some of the tours available are hiking, horseriding, rock climbing, and even a hike to some cave paintings.
The entrance to the spa with a climatized pool, sauna, and gym is included, but the massages and wellness treatments are not.
The rooms have 7 different categories and are decorated with Patagonian culture in mind. Some of the rooms do not have the best views, so try to ask for them when checking in.
Glamping in Torres del Paine national park
Camping, but with all of the amenities that you might find in a hotel? Yes, please!
Glamping in Torres del Paine is especially amazing, as it really lets you immerse yourself in nature and enjoy the incredible views that the park offers.
Luxurious Mongolian-style tents overlooking lake Toro and the Paine Massif in Torres del Paine – that’s Patagonia Camp. The yurts have private terraces with views of the lake and Cuernos del Paine.
The inside décor and furnishings are handmade from local wood.
There’s a double or king bed, private bathroom, and sitting area in each yurt.
You can choose between an all-inclusive rate or a room+breakfast.
The all-inclusive includes full board, transfers, and choices between 12 different guided group excursions.
The full board includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drinks, both alcoholic and soft. The transfers available are from Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas.
Some of the excursions available are fishing, hiking, and horseback riding.

A cosy and eco-friendly accommodation located just by the trailhead to the Base of the Towers.
The geodesic domes of EcoCamp Patagonia have a lovely view of the towers, so you get a chance to watch the sun colour them all shades of orange and pink. At night, enjoy the starry sky through the ceiling windows.
There are different types of domes to stay in available. Standard ones are smaller and offer basic accommodation with no toilet, heating, or electricity.
The superior, suite, and suite dome loft domes are bigger and have electricity, heating, and private bathrooms. They offer the best views as well.
Besides the lodging domes, EcoCamp Patagonia has community domes and yoga and wellness domes as well. Community is a strong attribute of the EcoCamp, so you can enjoy spending time with other travellers while eating in the restaurant or having a drink. They have tours available, as well.
On the same “community” note, if you’re travelling alone and don’t want to pay a surcharge for having a dome to yourself, EcoCamp will place individuals of the same gender together in a standard dome. They will never put you together with a person of the opposite gender and will not ask you to pay a supplement charge if a combination is not possible.
EcoCamp packages include a shared transfer from Punta Arenas or Puerto Natales (or public bus from El Calafate to Puerto Natales) to EcoCamp, all meals, park entry and the cost of any included excursions. For additional details, take a look at the Trip Facts section of your selected itinerary. Tips and personal items, like souvenirs, are not included in any programs.
Hotels in Torres del Paine
Staying in Torres del Paine itself is already quite expensive, so you might not have a luxury hotel in your budget, which is reasonable.
If you still want to stay in the park itself but don’t want to use hostels or campsites, there are some “normal” hotels available as well.
It’s not exactly a “budget” accommodation, but still less expensive than the luxury ones that I mentioned above. Basically, hotels in Torres del Paine fall into the “midrange” for price and quality, with some offering all-inclusive rates with tours to those who wish to have a guide help them.
Some of the hotels in Torres del Paine, although not luxury, offer hot tubs as well for those sore muscles that you get after hiking!
Hotel del Paine – where we stayed in Torres del Paine
The hotel which we stayed at during our trip to Patagonia – Hotel Del Paine.
It’s located on the banks of the Serrano River and offers incredible views of the turquoise waters and the mountains.
The rooms are located in little cabins and are rustic and cosy. They have double beds and a private bathroom, as well as a seating area with a work table.
Wifi is available only in the common areas or, if your cabin is close enough to the main building, you might catch it in your room as well.
There are both all-inclusive rates and normal trips available. The all-inclusive rates offer excursion services such as horseback riding, fly fishing or hiking, plus, of course, full board. “Normal” comes in the shape of a bed and breakfast, of course.
Hotel Las Torres has an incredible location – it’s located right at the trailhead of the Base of Torres! That’s a perfect location if you plan to do the hike, but at the same time, it can become rather busy.
It’s a family-run ranch, where you can see baqueanos (Patagonian cowboys) caring for horses – quite a special experience. You can hear or see the horses being brought in and out of the stables to and from pastures.
Hotel Las Torres has both standard and all-inclusive rates available. The all-inclusive rates include transfers to and from Punta Arenas or Calafate, full-board, open bar (not including premium spirits), tours with bilingual guides and a 20% discount in the spa. You must stay for at least 3 nights, though.
The standard rate comes with a room and breakfast or breakfast and dinner.
There is an abundance of excursions available. You can explore the park’s flora and fauna and have tours that focus on culture and heritage, plus the standard hiking, horseriding, fishing, and more.
Quite an interesting option near the Laguna Amarga.
Tiny House Torres del Paine has wood-style cabins, and they really are tiny. The space is used efficiently, though, because the cabins can fit even five people.
Each Tiny House has heating and a private shower. The meals are served in a different hut – there’s a continental breakfast, boxed lunch, and menu dinner available.
Tiny House Torres del Paine offers the comforts of a hotel with the calm of nature. Enjoy the mountains, the lagoon, and the animals that are around there – Laguna Amarga is home to many interesting animals in Torres del Paine.

Hosteria Pehoe has a really interesting location – it is located on an island in lake Pehoe. It doesn’t come with any type of luxury and the hotel might be a bit worn at places, but the position is clearly unrivalled.
The rooms in Hosteria Pehoe are located in four separate buildings, and there’s heating in all of them. As well as private bathrooms!
There’s a restaurant and a bar located in the hosteria. Even if you don’t stay in the hotel, you can enjoy the views from the cafeteria during lunch or dinner.

This is a hotel just by the Lago Grey, as you can tell by the name probably. It’s located pretty much by the pier where the boat excursions across the lake start. And there are trailheads for some hikes as well – the Mirador Ferrier starts just around the corner from the hotel, plus the W and Lake Grey trails are just by there, too.
It’s actually quite a luxury hotel if you judge solely by the location. Otherwise, it’s a nice 3-star hotel with nicely decorated rooms, some of which offer views of Lago Grey.
I like the modern décor of the rooms and the hotel itself. The restaurant and bar have a nice terrace overlooking the lake and mountains, which means – breakfast with a view!
Hotel Lago Grey offers all-inclusive rates as well. They include transfer to and from the hotel, excursions, all meals, most beverages (even alcoholic), and other things.
Estancias in Torres del Paine
Estancia is a perfect place to stay if you’re looking to learn more about the history, culture, and farm life in Torres del Paine National Park. They are working farms, most of which offer some kind of accommodation option as well.
To be completely precise, none of the estancias are located inside Torres del Paine national park, but they are very close by and definitely one of the most interesting places to stay in Patagonia.
If you cannot or don’t want to stay in an estancia, you can always visit them as a part of a guided tour.
Estancia Cerro Guido is located approximately 35 minutes drive from Torres del Paine National Park, on the way to Argentina, but the immense property itself actually borders the park. The views that it offers are incredible – you can see the mountains from Torres del Paine itself.
The farm is over 100 years old – a perfect chance to enjoy and learn the traditions of the gaucho and how life was in Patagonia before tourists flooded it. Even the houses where you’d stay were once where the workers stayed.
Rooms are quite nice and rustic, with private bathrooms that feature a bath. Some of them even have fireplaces, which is nice for those cold evenings that happen even in the middle of the summer in Patagonia. Of course, toiletries, linens, and towels are included.
There are a lot of excursions available, and my favourites are definitely the ones where you learn more about life on the ranch and in the park. Those would be “estancia day”, “wildlife and heritage tour”, “estancia cultural tour”, or the “conservation safari”. Other than that, you can do hikes, horseriding, fishing, and other cool activities.
As for the food, you don’t have to worry about going hungry – the stay is all-inclusive with lots of local options available, including asado! The food is made from local ingredients, grown on-site.
For more than 5 decades, Estancia Tercera Barranca has worked as a sheep farm, and it still works as one. One of the activities that is offered on the farm is actually sheep shearing!
This estancia borders Torres del Paine national park and you can actually see Las Torres mountains from it! So, in addition to enjoying the traditional life of Patagonian gauchos, you can have exclusive views of the national park.
The rooms are cosy, nicely decorated, and actually quite big. The description on booking.com says that there are rooms with shared bathrooms, so if it’s just as much of a dealbreaker for you as it is for me, make sure to book one with a private bathroom. Although I couldn’t see the “shared bathroom” options neither on hotels.com nor booking.
Anyyyways, Estancia Tercera Barranca is not all-inclusive, so you only get breakfast included. But for other meals, there’s a restaurant there.
You can book activities as well, such as horseriding, estancia experience, safari, Palaeolithic route, and even some trekkings. (There are other activities available, just so you know). So, besides living on an actual farm with incredible views, you get the comfort of starting activities straight from your hotel.
One bad thing from the reviews, that I could see, is that the driveway up to the hotel is quite bad. So, when renting your car down there, make sure to get a 4-wheel drive.
Just 2 estancias??
Well, there are more available, that’s true. But, reading about them, I wasn’t sure that they are worth the money, honestly.
Some are way too inconveniently located, some didn’t offer good enough value for money, and some just felt… sketchy. So, Cerro Guido and Tercera Barranca it is on my list of where to stay in Torres del Paine!
So, in conclusion about where to stay in Torres del Paine…
Finding where to stay in Torres del Paine is not so easy. There are quite a few options, but still, not so many are available. I hope this article of mine helped you a bit, though.
