The skatepark and climbing boulder at the hotel’s entrance, the three big, colorful surfboards in the lobby, the small in-hotel Patagonia store, and the view from every guestroom window all attest to the inspiration behind Hotel Alaia, on the Chile’s Punta de Lobos peninsula.
The 12-suite property puts guests just moments from one of the country’s top surf spots—a picturesque stretch of coastline and natural wonder in itself—as well as being a celebration of all things Chilean.
A design-led exemplar of adventurous hospitality and environmental sustainability, Hotel Alaia is housed inside low-lying minimalist structures made of native woods, black rock, and materials upcycled after the 2010 earthquake, while the interiors are a showcase of rough wood paneling; surfing paraphernalia and photography; as well as furniture, artwork, and sculptures by local talents.
After a day of rock-climbing, biking, or simply enjoying the coastline’s hidden wonders, you can indulge in organic seafood dishes and top wines from the Colchagua Valley in the hotel’s welcoming restaurant.
HotelSwaps is pleased to welcome Hotel Alaia as its first member in Chile.
