    The Singular, Patagonia

    End of the earth ambience and an intriguing, sensitive refit of an early 20th-century industrial site? An unequivocal ‘si’ from us. The Pedro Kovacic-designed public spaces in this Puerto Natales hotel, once the heart of a boom-time sheep processing plant, are ruggedly masculine but indulgently luxurious, while 57 cosy, modern, glass-fronted rooms make the most of spectacular views of of the wind-whipped Última Esperanza Sound and mountain peaks beyond. There’s no lolling by a pool this far south, instead days are filled with treks to the Torres del Paine national park, kayaking, horse riding and boat trips through the Patagonian fjords to see hanging glaciers and icebergs.
