The insides of an old sheep processing plant make an unconventional foyer for a Leading Hotel of the World—but this is merely the opening scene in an almost art-gallery installation of industrial art married to five-star luxury in the rugged beauties of Chilean Patagnoia.
This, the Singular Hotel, is an extraordinary five-star establishment created by leading international hoteliers, which is a true original. It stands on the shores of the Last Hope fjord, near the scenic town of Puerto Natales and the world famous Torres del Paine National Park, and to stay here is an experience in luxury, Art and Nature.
This unusual hotel—singular by nature as well as by name—is in fact an historic frigorifico (cold storage plant) from the days of Patagonia’s thriving sheep trade. Added to which, the hotel’s acclaimed restaurant, bar and museum are housed in the Puerto Bories, a post-Victorian cold-storage plant built in 1915 and declared a National Monument in 1996. The result? A totally unique Patagonian experience.
Patagonia’s rugged landscape gives guests full appreciation of home comforts, and the Singular complies. Guest rooms are a generous 500 sq ft and the suites 770 sq ft, ultra-comfortable, with large floor-to-ceiling windows giving tremendous Patagonian views of the Last Hope fjord, as well as every modern comfort and facility. The furniture, Victorian in style, is handcrafted and the beds are supremely comfortable. Each room also features an en-suite bathroom with a separate bath tub and shower, as well as a large executive working desk, seating area, minibar, free Wifi, cable TV and safe deposit box.
As to the food, it is deliciously Chilean in style, another salutation to the region’s heritage, served in a huge dining room with views of the chefs at work in an open kitchen. Enjoy Magellan lamb and king crab, together with a variety of fresh fish and meats. The eclectic bar area offers an extensive wine list. It is a place to relax, enjoy, and savour the delights of a luxurious culture and cuisine.
Surrounded by glaciers and fjords, The 3,000-square-foot Singular Spa and wellness centre is state-of-the-art, with an indoor pool, outdoor seasonal pool, sauna and hot tub. A range of beauty and relaxation treatments are available.
More than 20 excursions offer unforgettable experiences of the depths of Chilean Patagonia. The landscape is breathtaking. Icebergs float over lakes, condor wheel and fish jump—the vast flora and wildlife of Patagonia are there for guests to explore and enjoy on horseback, by canoe, by launch, four-wheel-drive and on foot. Nothing prepares you for the breathtaking vistas on offer here.
Teniente Julio Gallardo Airport is a 15-minute drive away.
