Small, isolated and utterly magical hotel built almost entirely of salt, with views that give the impression of being on the edge of another planet.

This small, isolated and utterly magical Luna Salada hotel, built entirely of salt blocks, overlooks the spectacularly surreal Uyuni salt flats from a low bluff – giving an impression of being on the edge of another planet.

Except for the tiled bathrooms, all the walls and floors of this extraordinary property are made of compacted salt crystals, which shimmer in the sunlight. Even the furniture is mostly made of salt, made homely with cushions and Bolivian textiles.

Guestrooms are modest but all have heaters, electric blankets and cosy bedspreads. The rooms are built along one side of a long corridor, opposite which there is a sitting area with large bay windows framing wonderful views of the salt flats.

  • "We were very excited about going to this place and we were not disappointed. We just wonder if the area outside the entrance could be tidied up a bit?"

Our Expert's Opinion

This really is a unique opportunity of staying at a hotel almost entirely made out of salt. I was pleasantly surprised how comfortable my stay was as well. The location is stunning, right by the vast salt flats.
