Bolivia - DESTINATIONS & HOTELS

Uyuni and the southern highlands

Hotel de Piedra

$$

Remote Location

The simple “Stone Hotel” lies on the southern edge of the great Uyuni salt-lake, deep in Bolivia’s isolated highland altiplano. Overlooking the small village of San Pedro de Quemez set against a distant volcano, the lodge melds seamlessly into the barren, boulder-ridden landscape. Its design pays tribute to the traditional Andean communities and was built with local, volcanic rock topped with native straw thatch.

The rooms are basic yet comfortable with private en-suite facilities and equipped with thick blankets and colourful throws. Solar panels provide a regular supply of hot water which is also used to heat the lodge – at over 3500m above sea-level temperatures drop quickly at night!

In the dining room, guests are met with a roaring open fire as they sit down to enjoy hearty Andean fare overlooking the desert landscapes.

Although the facilities are admittedly rustic, the Hotel de Piedra provides a welcome overnight stopping point for visitors touring the remarkable landscapes of Bolivia’s southern altiplano. The village and pre-Colombian ruins of El Quemado are a short walk away while further afield the millenary caves of “Cueva Galaxia” showcase weird and wonderful wind-sculptured rock formations. 

 

This is just one of the hotels that we recommend in this area. If your favourite is not featured just let your consultant know - we will be happy to book it for you!
