Mari Mari Natural Reserve (formerly known as The Cliffs Reserve) is an all-villa retreat located on the Pacific Coast of northern Chilean Patagonia. With 9,000 acres of terrain and 13 miles of Pacific coastline, Mari Mari is a base for exploring both land and sea.
Most of our clients choose to stay 3 or 4 nights. During the warm season (October to April) guests can enjoy:
- Hiking, riding, and biking on the reserves network of trails;
- Sea kayaking;
- Fishing (from shore or by boat);
- Visits to the nearby fishing community;
- Helicopter excursions to lakes, volcanos, and Chiloe Island;
- Boat visits to the penguin and sea lion colonies; and
- Dolphin and whale watching excursions.
Cooking classes and cultural exchanges with the native Mapuche communities are also possible. (Mari mari means greetings in the Mapudungun language.)
During the cool weather months (May to September) the resort is open on a per-booking basis. These are rainy months with rougher currents.
Mari Mari’s centerpiece is the 20,000-square foot oceanfront clubhouse, which houses the resort’s restaurant, bar, lounge, fitness center, meeting space, and spa facilities. Outside guests can enjoy the ambient-temperature (seasonal) swimming pool and sun deck.
The spa offers a variety of services, such as facials, scrubs, and massages. Yoga and meditation classes are also offered, and personal training in available. It’s facilities include wet and dry saunas.
