Its pleasant restaurant is open to the public and offers a traditional, central fireplace.
A stroll away from the bustling heart of San Pedro de Atacama, the Kimal is an attractive boutique hotel in easy reach of the town’s church, museum and handicraft market.
Set back from the main street Caracoles, the hotel evokes the rich heritage of the Atacama with thick adobe walls complemented by polished volcanic stone and native lattice wood ceilings.
Ancient Fruit trees and modern straw shades offer shelter from the afternoon sun while the rooms are set amongst a labyrinth of courtyards and shrub gardens.
There are 19 cosy rooms, all recently renovated with warm ethnic style décor combining with polished wooden floors and soft furnishings. All feature Wi-Fi and several open onto small private terraces.
The restaurant delivers tasty local flavours though guests tend to eat in town where there is an abundance of options.
Additional facilities include a Jacuzzi and a handsome, circular plunge pool, perfect for winding down after a busy day.
The Hotel Kimal is Caracoles brims over with tour agencies and it is easy to organise all activities locally.
