“I believe that, through the simplest actions, we can make a person feel welcome, important, happy” – Nicolás García, Resident Manager at Awasi Atacama, Relais & Chateaux.

Where were you born and where did you grow up? I was born in the city of Buenos Aires where I grew up and spent a large part of my life. 

How did you arrive in the hotel world? For some time I had been looking for a career in service: somewhere where the details make the difference. Step by step, I found my path leading to Awasi…

And Awasi Atacama? Well, in this same search to find a place of professionalism, service, details, quality and… magic, I arrived at Awasi Atacama.

What was your first impression of Awasi? Quality, Friendliness, Essence. Bárbara and Cristóbal were waiting for me when I arrived, they greeted me with a huge smile and received me as though we were old friends. I felt very happy and welcome. When I was shown around the hotel, I was touched by the way that all the details reflected the Atacameño spirit, the spirit of the desert and the local essence. 

In your opinion, what is the difference between Awasi and other hotels? The closeness to our guests. We strive to be on top of every detail and to create something unique for each guest. 

Anything else you would like to add? All my life I have been drawn to the desert. There is so much to discover, each one so surprising and unexpected. The way in which life flows in the desert is startling. And to form part of a team of people who share the pride and love for this world, fills me with pride.
