Wara Nomade sits on the Chilean Pacific, 7kms south of Barranquilla. The property – open ten days – belongs to architect Susanna Aránguiz, owner of the stunning Wara Hotel (45mins inland) and one of the designers of Awasi Atacama.
A maximum of six guests stay in three ensuite safari-style tents, decorated with Andean textiles. Days are for reading and swimming and snorkelling. The less languid can paddle-board or kayak to spot sea lions and, from November-January, the occasional visiting whale.
PSA Director, Harry Hastings, travelled to Chile to check out Wara Nomade as soon as it opened – “We drank pisco sours with locos (impossibly tender abalone) and watched camp chef, Carlos, grill a huge fillet of beef over an open fire.”
Nomade’s season will run September to mid-April. You heard it first from Plan South America, #roamsouth Ole!
