Far in the deep south of Chile lies a land of mysterious and raw beauty, a land of craggy fjords, of windswept hills, of majestic and aweinspiring, glacier covered mountains, of deep blue glacial lakes, of sheer cliff faces, and endless vistas across the wilderness that has barely been touched by man.
Or so it seems. In fact, this stark, lonesome and half-forgotten place is full of surprises, waiting to be discovered. For aeons indigenous people have managed to live in this apparently hostile region and ancient petroglyphs bear witness to a rich cultural history. When European settlers came they established themselves as sheep farmers, with vast herds and endless ranges - inevitably changing Patagonia's landscape forever.
Today, this last frontier at the end of the world is being discovered by nature and adventure travellers. Hiking, biking, horseback riding, kayaking - are the best ways to truly experience this magnificient landscape.
Remota Inn is located at the end of the world - yet strategically well positioned to let visitors experience six different types of environments and regions from within easy reach of the hotel. Close to Puerto Natales it is within striking distance of Punta Arenas, the local traffic hub, and Torres del Paine National Park - one of the main draws of the region. But you can also easily explore areas beyond the park borders, which have their own supreme ambiance.
Puerto Natales, looking out over the Ultima Esperanza Sound, a formidable mountain range and its glaciers, is the best point for the beginning of a Chilean Patagonian journey. REMOTA is located at an latitude comparable with London in the northern hemisphere, 4,300 kilometers from the South Pole, 2,000 from Santiago, 235 kilometers from Punta Arenas (147 miles), and 70 kilometers from Torres del Paine (44 miles). REMOTA lies at a distance of 286 kilometers from Calafate, Argentina (178 miles).
Remota Inn was designed by the famous architect Germán Del Sol, winner of the national architecture award and one of the most lauded architects of Chile. The building is architecturally unique - modern, spacious, simple, clear - minimalistic, yet perfectly comfortable. And even though it looks almost futuristic, it does not clash with the landscape of its setting. The design was inspired by the typical architecture of the estancias in the region, a kind of architecture that tends to develop as a response to the force of nature, following natural forms and often appearing to have emerged from the ground itself.
The hotel's interiors feature open, airy spaces that look out toward the exterior, while feeling cozy inside. REMOTA boasts a unique, private collection of indigenous artifacts, textiles, and metalwork, as well as textiles, blankets and ponchos from the gaucho, Mapuche Indian and huaso (Chilean cowboy) cultures.
The hotel has 72 spacious guestrooms that measure 32 square meters (345 square feet), and a simple yet sophisticated décor that provides ultimate comfort.
The common areas feature a reading room, a music room that we call the “The Court,” a sun room that we call “The Beach,” a variety of living areas with open fire pits, a bar and dining room with sweeping views of the Ultima Esperanza Sound and the Serrano and Balmaceda glaciers. Remota is, without a doubt, the most sophisticated, spacious and spectacular hotel in all of Patagonia.
The SPOT (sala para el ocio total – or space for total relaxation) is an exceptionally attractive, separate building with a heated indoor pool, outdoor Jacuzzis, and massage salons.
