San Pedro de Atacama, Chile
Of all the properties to be included in the Relais & Chateaux listings (considered the world's finest hotels and restaurants), Awasi is the only one to be built entirely of natural materials collected within a 62-mile radius of the property, creating a sense of intimacy as the hotel blends into its surroundings. The eight independent bungalows have been hand-molded from adobe clay, while the walls and roofs are made of local river stone, recycled chanar wood, and straw grass.
