The Hotel Costaustralis experience lets you live the Chile’s Patagonia from its roots. Facing the fjord of Last Hope, Hotel Costaustralis stands out for its traditional building land marking the entrance of the city of Puerto Natales.
Inside, it houses the history and traditions of the area with its warm, personalized service along with its sober and elegant décor accented by the great presence of local pieces.
Costaustralis Hotel boasts 110 comfortable rooms designed to provide total relaxation as well as high-level food service emphasizing our traditional Patagonian Quincho, a grilling area where you can enjoy an exquisite Skewered Lamb.
The best part about the property is its convenient location and the views you can get upon request. To get a sea view, ask for a double (one bed, not two beds – it’s something you need to be clear about asking in advance or the default will likely be a twin or two twins), facing the Ultima Esperanza Fjord. You can even get a king here btw, but be sure to specifically request it.

Rooms for a seaview are roughly in the $300-400 range per night.
