Why we like this hotel

  • You step back in time when walking through the doors of what was originally a cold storage plant, built in 1915. The building has been transformed while celebrating its history, including a museum display of some of the old machinery and artefacts
  • The interior design is completely unique; it was restored to its former glory and maintains many of the original features
  • Despite the building's humble beginnings, your experience is one of total luxury in beautiful rooms with huge windows that overlook the water
  • You will taste some of the finest cuisine of the region at their restaurant which has sweeping views of the mountains and fjords
  • The spa is not to be missed - chill in the pool or unwind with one (or more!) of the varied treatments on offer
  • You can enjoy privately-run kayak trips and boat excursions to visit nearby glaciers since the hotel has its own boat and kayaks


A sense of adventure and an appreciation for the local culture and history lie at the heart of the Singular's excursions. Their all-inclusive programme offers full- and half-day excursions for all abilities both in Torres del Paine National Park and around the fjord in the Puerto Natales area. English-speaking guides lead the excursions which have a maximum group size of eight.

In the winter, 15 excursions are offered and, due to fewer guests at this time of year, the experience can be more intimate and reflective.


Whether it's one of the more challenging hikes in Torres del Paine, such as the base of the Towers hike, or a relaxed hike taking in the views along Last Hope Sound, there is something for everyone.

The Singular Patagonia

Horseback riding

No matter how much horse riding experience you may have, you can follow in the footsteps of gauchos and join one of the horseback excursions. There are shorter routes for beginners and rides of up to five hours for the more experienced.

Taking you along the fjord, past lakes and through southern beech forest, all the while surrounded by mountains, these rides bring you some of the most stunning Patagonian landscapes.

The Singular is the only hotel in the area to offer kayaking in their own kayaks practically from the front door. You set off in kayaks from the shore in front of the building and the excursion length can be tailored to your experience and ability.

If you want a bit more of a challenge, they offer a full day excursion in the fjords, giving you the chance to spot plenty of birds, such as flamingos, swans, coots and grebes.

The Singular Patagonia

Fjords cruise

On the hotel's own boat, cruise up Last Hope Sound to visit the Balmaceda and Serrano Glaciers. As this is available only to hotel guests, you leave behind the crowds and have some spectacular scenery to yourself. Spot sea lions and cormorants along the way.

Combine this with a traditional barbecue lunch at Estancia La Peninsula, a working ranch, followed by an afternoon's hiking, horse riding or relaxing at the estancia.

The Singular Patagonia


Pedal your way through Patagonian steppe with wonderful views of the surrounding mountains, or bike along the coastal road into Puerto Natales to visit the town.

The biking excursions are an excellent time to spot birds: condors, eagles, swans, caracaras and flamingos, to name a few.

Fly fishing

You can go fly fishing at an additional cost. It's a fantastic place for fly fishing due to the abundance of brown trout. You can also find rainbow trout and various types of salmon in the region's watercourses.

There is a maximum of four people per group and you have a specialised fishing guide. All gear and a fishing licence are provided.

About The Singular


The Singular is just a five-minute drive north from Puerto Natales and only 15 minutes from the airport. Perched on the shores of the Señoret Channel which leads to the end of Last Hope Sound, it's close to town, but also far enough away for you to enjoy views of the pristine Patagonian wilderness.



In 1915, shortly after Puerto Natales was founded, a cold storage plant was built in the town to preserve the meat produced by the largest stock breeder company in Chilean and Argentinian Patagonia, bringing workers from all parts of the globe. Over the years the building stopped operating, was abandoned and fell into disrepair.

In 1996, the building was declared a national monument for the significant part it played in the origins of the town and the region's industry. Finally, in 2011, after being taken over, completely restored and converted into a luxury hotel by a Swiss family, the Singular Patagonia opened its doors to guests.


Food and drink

The Singular has won awards for its excellent cuisine. The head chef combines local ingredients with a French cooking style to make mouth-watering dishes such as Guanaco sirloin from Tierra del Fuego with husked wheat, and Glazed lamb shank with blue cheese polenta. Add into the mix an incredible view of Last Hope Sound while you eat and you won't be disappointed. They also have 'El Asador' where they prepare traditional barbecues (asados) and run cooking classes.

For breakfast, help yourself to an extensive buffet of pastries, cereals, fruits, bread, cheeses, meats, eggs and more.



The perfect way to end a day of activities is to relax in the hotel's pool which has both an inside and outside section so that you can feel the elements and feel totally immersed in nature, surrounded by magnificent scenery.

Allow yourself to be pampered by trying one of the treatments which can be booked at an additional cost. Organic products are used in the spa.
