Weskar Patagonian Lodge Review

Weskar stands for "hill" in the language of the indigenous Kaweskar, to whom owner Juan José Pantoja, a marine biologist, pays homage in creating and maintaining this cozy lodge, which is high on a ridge overlooking the Última Esperanza fjord. The wooden building is surrounded by parkland and has fabulous views from the terrace. Rustic fireplaces and several different lounge nooks are ideal when coming back from the windy and cold outdoors. The hotel also boasts a bar and restaurant with a (somewhat overpriced) standard lunch and dinner menu. As with several other hotels in Puerto Natales, the lodge has added rooms recently. All are simply decorated in log-cabin style but warm and welcoming with locally woven blankets—and almost all have stunning lake views, something that's not guaranteed in neighboring hotels. Staff members are helpful and keep the grounds spotless. The three-night program includes day tours to Torres Del Paine and a sailing trip on the Ultima Esperanza sound.

    Weskar Patagonian Lodge Review

    We had a pleasant, good sized room with nice view. Helpful staff. Let down by breakfast which could have been quite good but was let down by not being restocked after a large party had gone through early.
