Palacio de Sal Hotel is located on the edge of the vast and mysterious Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia - the world’s largest salt flat. Mirroring its environment, everything from the walls to the furniture in the hotel is built entirely with salt. Choose one of 30 igloo-like rooms, built with salt blocks. Relax by the fireplace in the game room or have a drink at the bar after a long day of exploring. Take in your surroundings from Palacio de Sal's viewing room with a surreal 360 degree view.
You are here for Salar de Uyuni - the largest salt flat in the world, covering an area of 12,000 square km, and sitting 3660 meters above sea level, visible from space. Created by a prehistoric lake going dry, Salar de Uyuni is a desertlike landscape of salt, rock formations and islands. Discover this other-worldly natural wander while staying at Palacio de Sal on foot or mountain bikes.
