Hotel & Cabañas Centinela
In the early 1900s three wealthy Chilean families set out to find the perfect spot to build a summer home when they came upon the Centinela Peninsula on Llanquihue Lake. Set in the midst of native forests and with breathtaking views of the Osorno, Calbuco and Puntiagudo volcanoes, the peninsula is an exceptional vacation destination. The summer home, which was later transformed into the exclusive Hotel & Cabañas Centinela, has received guests as distinguished as the Prince of Wales and was thoroughly restored and refurbished in the year 2000.
There are 12 guest rooms and 18 cabins in all, each of them gracefully furnished and fully appointed to provide for guests' comfort and enjoyment. The original wooden detail work of the guest rooms creates a homey atmosphere, while the spacious cabins with kitchenettes are great for families looking for more privacy and independence.
The property boasts a host of common areas and facilities including a fireplace lounge with an extra-high ceiling overlooking the lake, a private dock and beach, reading nooks, a TV room, a children's game room and a scenic terrace area where guests can take a dip in the heated pool and hyrdomassage tub. The 24-acre property is beautifully landscaped and features marked nature trails through native forests.
The hotel is located on the Centinela Peninsula on the shores of Llanquihue Lake, 2.5 miles south of the main square of Puerto Octay. It's surrounded by landscaped grounds and native forests and is a great base for activities such as fishing, hunting, trekking, canoeing, horseback riding, mountain biking and visiting hot springs. Cascada and Frutillar are 20 minutes away and Puerto Montt, Osorno, Puerto Varas and Ensenada can be reached in less than an hour.
Food & Beverage
A complimentary Southern Chilean-style breakfast is served each morning from 8:30 to 10:30 am. The hotel's Restaurant Panorámico offers international cuisine prepared with local ingredients and traditional German baked goods for dessert. There is also a cozy bar with parlor games where guests can savor fine wines and beers.
How To Get There
To get to the hotel from Puerto Octay, head south for 2.5 miles along route U-915 to the very end of the Centinela Peninsula.
