Escape to the vast Salar de Uyuni and hide away in the extraordinary eco-domes of Kachi Lodge, perched above the salt flat itself. This is glamping, but not as you know it. The sustainable lodge is a collection of eco-friendly domes scattered over the salty plains of Uyuni, next to a beguiling island of giant cacti and overlooking the imposing Thunupa volcano. It’s the perfect retreat to connect with nature: from sunrise hikes to start the day, to nights spent stargazing at an immense, glittering sky.

Rooms at Kachi Lodge

The eco-domes are airy glamping pods with windows affording unparalleled views of the salt flat. Above the beds are brightly coloured artworks by Gastón Ugalde, the “Andy Warhol of Bolivia”. And outside you’ll find his huge woven sculptures. The Luxury Dome is spacious in size, at 28 square meters, with a double bed or twin beds and a bunk bed. You also have a private bathroom with hot water, dining area, pellet stove, clothes rack, and outdoor deck space.
