MAREAS is a place where tranquility and privacy are assured. We promote the meticulous care of the environment, using onsite-generated compost, all-dry firewood (low in VOC's), organic gardening principles, and re-use of discarded materials when feasible.
We engage in fair-trade principles with our service staff, and is composed chiefly of people from the neighboring environs.
We boast a greenhouse and organic garden, wood-fired hot tub, and wood-fired slow-combustion heating.
MAREAS offers the most pristine, most beautiful, and most impactful vistas available in the zone, overlooking the Fjord of Reloncaví. The tidal variations of the fjord make for a dynamic, fascinating visual experience, from the spring tides that bring the ocean virtually to your feet, to the neap tides that reveal the grassy bottom for miles and miles.
We offer a delicate, low-impact, nearly invisible service experience that is the best balance between meeting all of your needs, without detracting from your experience of tranquility and privacy - the recipe for an unforgettable experience you will be talking about for years to come.
MAREAS is administered by the warm and engaging staff, trained to be delicately present, yet not invasive - a hallmark of service staff in premium accommodations.
