South America, with its many mixed cultures, has attracted tourists for generations. For those who want to live a luxurious life for a few days, weeks, or longer, there are many places to stay.
From history to food, the continent offers everything. Peru was the home of the mighty Inca Empire, which was one of the most advanced countries at the time. Brazil has the best beaches and the Amazon rainforest. Black American tourists flock to Colombia, because of its rich, African ties. Guyana is known in the Caribbean and is the only country in South America that has English as an official language. Along with Brazil, Spanish is not an official language in Guyana.
If you want a hotel in the city, you have options. If you want a change of scenery, there are good places to live in deserts and rainforests. Here are some of the most popular luxury hotels and resorts in South America.
Maspi – Ecuador
Masphi advertises itself as a rain cloud hotel. If you love nature and wildlife, look no further than Ecuador.
The hotel boasts that it is “a place to meet 400 species of birds, trees, frogs, creatures found nowhere else in the world, full of broken waterfalls and amazing plants.” Bird watching, hiking, and river swimming – you’ll find all this and more here.
Guest rooms allow you to see the rainforest from all angles. Be sure to eat delicious Ecuadorian food and relax at the spa.
Carmel Taíba Exclusive Resort – Brazil
The architecture of this place in Brazil is next level. The 36 accommodations “are divided into beautiful villas with incredible views, designed to ensure comfort and luxury in every detail.”
Along with the accommodation, the services provided are top notch. It is a perfect place for solo travelers, groups, and couples on their honeymoon.
The Legend of Sofitel Santa Clara – Colombia
Located in historic Cartagena, this five-star hotel is part of the Sofitel collection. Choose from superior, superior, and deluxe rooms, or one of the many suites.
If you want to enjoy yourself like a dignified person, book the Presidential Suite with its beautiful space and bedroom. The group comes with private airport transfers, catering service, and VIP treatment.
There are exciting options such as yoga, mixologist classes, and rum and chocolate tastings. One amazing activity you can do here is Feet Under Water. Students (couples, usually) enjoy the menu of six crabs, and somehow your feet are affected. If this interests you, contact the hotel for more information.
Tierra Atacama Hotel – Chile
Some places here are similar to Joshua Tree in California, except you’re in Chile. From every room, enjoy the Atacama desert, the driest desert in the world. What a wonderful experience it was to wake up every morning!
The ideal guest for this type of accommodation loves the outdoors. During the day, you can book a half or full day desert tour with a knowledgeable and friendly guide. Each guide will tailor your tours based on your skills and abilities.
Due to the conditions of the Atacama, the lack of light pollution and low humidity, there is also a chance to see the stars here.
Casa Grande Hotel – Bolivia
Located in La Paz, this business hotel is comfortable and stylish, with 65 rooms.
It is not in the middle otherwise; you are right in the business. If you want to grab a coffee, go to the Buena Vista Lab and Store. They offer the best coffee in Bolivia to enjoy on site, or to buy.
After the day’s work, enjoy a delicious dinner at the hotel’s signature restaurant, Yerba Buena Restaurant and Terrace. Finally, there is Casabar, where you can enjoy a terrace restaurant at sunset.
