Though stunning in design, with rustic-luxe interiors and a gorgeous spa, this hotel has sustainability running through its DNA. The eye-catching architecture was inspired by the ‘palafitos’ (stilted houses) of the island, and the geometric, low-rise structure was brilliantly designed to harness natural energy resources. On a remote archipelago that’s deeply rooted in the past, Tierra’s commitment to being low impact on the landscape and its local community is commendable. Indeed, it works in harmony with them; many of the beautiful textiles around the hotel are made by their neighbours, and the restaurant dishes up local fishermens’ catch and ‘curanto’ (a celebratory meal, cooked on hot rocks). Come here to explore dramatic Patagonian fjords and wetlands, with their wild otters, penguins and rare shorebirds. Wonderful guides will lead the way, and share the timeless traditions and myth-based culture of this breathtaking place.
