Cabin hotel AKA Patagonia sits at the threshold of volcanoes, mountains and glaciers in Chile

Six cabins, located at the top of a valley in Chile’s Puerto Natales, look out across the country’s dramatic horizon at adventure hotel AKA Patagonia.

Architect Pablo Larroulet describes the AKA Patagonia Hotel as ‘an architecture that emerges from the earth and becomes part of nature’, perhaps in a nod to the sawtooth pattern of its roofs, which reflect the craggy mountains and volcanoes in the distance.

Larroulet has designed the cabins to offer panoramic views of the southern Patagonian landscape, situating them to capture as much natural daylight as possible. A bank of floor-to-ceiling windows look over the valley plain and to the mountain gorge beyond.

The architect also paid respect to the surrounding landscape by prefabricating each module and installing them on piles, to reduce impact on the environment. Wood from the native lenga tree covers the cabins, chosen to withstand weather conditions and gradually patinate over time.

Wood panelling continues in the cabins’ interiors, which are laid out with only the most minimal, practical furniture. Guests head to a separate communal space to cook and eat. Cabins start from £98 per night.
