The Singular Hotel, Puerto Bories, Patagonia

View all 23 Photos

The Singular Patagonia is a hotel that uses history as an inspiration for the present. What used to be a post-Victorian industrial complex has been transformed into a spacious hotel with 57 luxury seafront rooms that boast breathtaking views of the Chilean fjords. The contrast between the softer, natural background of the locale and the harsher, industrial interiors creates depth in the vacationing experience. Such a discrepancy plays into the hotel’s division of public and private spaces; the rough stony walls and metal light fixtures in the common areas help underline the calming and almost therapeutic getaway of the transparent glazing and white furnishings in the individual suites.
