The Singular Patagonia
The Singular Patagonia is a national treasure. Located on the Ultima Esperanza Sound just outside Puerto Natales, this is the only full service luxury hotel in far southern Chilean Patagonia. It’s location offers guests access to the Torres del Paine region and to lesser visited areas near the coast that most visitors to the national park never see.
Opened in 2011, The Singular is the finest hotel in all of Chilean Patagonia. The hotel is set within a restored national landmark—a museum-quality cold-storage plant dating to 1915. The Singular’s architecture artfully merges historic elements with modern touches.
The historic core of the hotel originally served as an Edwardian Era cold storage plant for Patagonian products headed to England.
Declared a national monument in 1996, that portion of the structure is protected as part of Chile’s cultural heritage.
With restoration and the addition of a guest wing, the project was reborn as The Singular Patagonia in 2011.
Unlike some lodges in the Torres del Paine region, guests at the Singular are free to come and go for the length of stay they choose, without the dictates of set arrival and departure.
The Singular also offers bed & breakfast, half-board, and full-board options. The full board option includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and beverages (premium wine and spirits excluded) along with daily, guided expeditions in the company of other guests (two half-day tours or one full-day tour for each full day at The Singular Patagonia).
Multi-generational families especially welcome this flexibility—those who’d like to relax are free to do so, while other members of the family can hike, kayak, ride, and explore to their hearts’ content.
Singular Patagonia Location
The Singular Patagonia is located near the edge of Señoret Channel, 5-minutes by road from the town Puerto Natales and its airport (PNT). The hotel is 2.5 hours by road from Punta Arenas airport (PUQ), which offers many more flights to other parts of Chile, and serves as a base for air travel to Antarctica. Guests at The Singular Patagonia can also cross the border to Argentina, reaching the town of El Calafate in about four hours.
