Nayara Resorts, known for its three properties in Costa Rica, has announced a new partnership with Tánica hotels in Chile. This is Nayara’s first foray beyond Costa Rica, starting with Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa in Chile’s Atacama Desert and Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa on Easter Island.

Tánica has signed an agreement with Nayara Resorts for Alto Atacama, a 42-key hotel in the Atacama Desert, and Hangaroa Eco Village & Spa, a 75-key hotel on Easter Island. The two Chilean properties will be marketed and overseen by Nayara Resorts.

On October 23, Alto Atacama joined the Nayara Resorts portfolio as Nayara Alto Atacama, offering guests entrée into the landscape of the Atacama Desert, with its crystal-clear night sky fit for stargazing, its salt mountains and lake.

Like Nayara, local artisans helped craft each corner of the property from the gardens to the villas. Hangaroa on Easter Island will join as Nayara Hangaroa.

The hotel will immerse guests in the culture of the island and offer experiences like sunset over the moai in Tahai and hiking Ara O Te Ao, one of the oldest paths on the island leading to a massive crater.

In Tánica’s resorts, Nayara, it says found a mirroring of its “core values:” Properties in locations that are remote but accessible and a belied that “being green is more than ticking a box.”

All of the properties share the common ground, they are located in places of pristine natural beauty and the resorts embrace the atmosphere by offering a connection to nature and wildlife.

While these two hotels are the first joint ventures between the brands, there will be more to come.
