Wara Nomade


Wara Nomade is a stunning luxury beach camp on Chile’s Pacific coast.


Chile’s southern Atacama features mesmerising landscapes and incredible opportunities for desert adventure.

Unlike the northern Atacama, few international tourists make it here.

What we love about Wara Nomade

  • Wara Nomade was dreamt up by architect Susana Aránguiz, owner of the stunning Wara Hotel (45mins inland) and one of the designers of Awasi Atacama
  • Before Susana created Wara, this stretch of coast was a family secret
  • A maximum of six guests stay in three luxury ensuite safari-style tents decked in Andean textiles
  • At night, paths are illuminated by lanterns.
  • Most meals are grilled over on an open fire—the seafood here is out of this world
  • The clarity of the Atacama atmosphere makes for some of the clearest skies on the planet
What to do at Wara Nomade

Days are for reading, beach-combing, swimming and snorkelling for scallops

The less languid can paddle-board or kayak to spot sea lions and, from November-January, the occasional visiting whale.

For those looking for adventure, there is dune-buggying, trekking, sand-boarding, 4×4 expeditions, mountaineering and a coast of cool emerald waters and powdery beaches. The Atacama’s night skies are amongst the clearest of anywhere on the planet, making it an incredible destination for star gazing.

Those wanting to experience the region’s most dramatic landscapes should head for the Nevado Tres Cruces National Park, either by helicopter from Wara, or as an unforgettable overland journey into Argentina

Wara Nomade

Access to Wara Nomade is via Copiapo. Guests would typically fly from Santiago to Copiapo and transfer an hour from there, splitting their time between the two Wara properties. Those looking for high altitude adventure can travel overland into Argentina via the Paso San Francisco, which takes approximately 8hrs.
