Directions to Terrahtai Lodge
San Pedro de Atacama´s essence and culture is based on customs of offering hospitality, comfort, peace, and tranquility to its travelers. Terrantai Lodge shares this sentiment, and furthermore their inspiration for construction the lodge is rooted in a desire to honor the spirit of traditional Atacameño customs. Their wish is to offer an authentic experience amongst these sacred, desert soils in a manner that reflects and respects the Atacameño spirit.
Terrantai Lodge is a 19th century historic home. Due to the building's unique history and location, it is in fact recognized as a Chilean National Monument. In 1980, the Chilean government declared the buildings surrounding the church in San Pedro de Atacama as part of “The Historic Sector”. In 1996, the construction of the hotel took place. The conservation of the cultural heritage of this historic house was and is paramount. The reception and living areas, as well as rooms along the original corridor have been preserved in their original state conserving the original Atacameño architecture.
Furthermore, as homage to local culture and environmental consciousness, the materials used in the construction of the rest of the lodge came directly from the Atacama Desert. The hand-chosen, lenticular, river stones and sun-baked, adobe walls invoke the ancient construction methods used by the Atacameños.
Mathias Klotz, Chilean Architect
Mathias Klotz, renowned Chilean architect, partnered with Terrantai for this special preservation and transformation project. He incorporated local materials into the construction of the 70 centimeter thick adobe walls, rock walls, and wooden structures. Lake mud and rocks and wood from the old railroad for example were essential.
Additionally, all the decor found in lodge, from the wool blankets and hand painted lamps to the table with local algarrobo and chañar seed and mosaic flooring were handmade and constructed by local Atacameña artisans.
