The first time we arrived in José Ignacio, we were in love. What a magical place this is, where you immediately feel at peace and at home no matter where you come from. It didn’t take us long to conclude this is the best place in the world to build our slice of paradise.
A few years of labour, love and dedication on, we’re delighted to welcome you to our beloved posada. We’re Edda, Robert, Felice and Koko Kofler from Vienna. Robert’s father once had a wonderful hotel in the stunning lakeside town of Bregenz in the Austrian mountains, and it’s been our dream to open our own one day.
Posada Ayana is built on the desire to create a place that is personal, inspiring and welcoming, where people get to be themselves and feel relaxed. We came to José Ignacio not only to leave a footprint but also to make a lasting positive impact, in the lives of our guests as well as those of our local community.
From planning, constructing, landscaping and interior designing to finding a name and logo and creating our menus - everyone in our family has been intensely involved and excited. When the time came to choose a name, we wanted one that embodies our lightness and warmth of personality. Ayana means beautiful flower, eternal blossom, a good path and arrival – all in different languages and from different cultures. It fits us perfectly.
