Architectural highlights include rock chimneys and a panoramic lobby, while a skate park and climbing boulder welcome guests at the hotel’s entrance. Guests are also met by a pool and two hot tubs as they make their way along the wooden path that leads from the hotel to the beach and surf school.

ARCHITECTURE

Nicolas Pfenniger

The property is an architectural expression of Chilean spirit with a good measure of environmental sustainability thrown in. Minimalist architect Nicolas Pfenniger chose to pay homage to his homeland with black rock and native wood varieties—particularly oak—as well as materials salvaged from the 2010 earthquake.

Ancestral surfboards and tribal objets d’art made from native wood give an added textural depth to the sunlit spaces, while colorful woven rugs sprawl across light gray dappled floors in guestrooms, offsetting the otherwise muted color palette.

Minimalistic, natural, and inviting, the interiors are a showcase of handcrafted furnishings by locals as well as paintings and sculptures by area artists. Native woods in a spectrum of browns cover walls and ceilings.
