Luna Salada puts you, quite literally, in the heart of Bolivia’s Southern Altiplano and the famous Uyuni Salt Flats. Not only does the property enjoy a prime location overlooking the plains, but the hotel itself is constructed completely from blocks of mined salt. More than a mere novelty however, the salt walls, surfaces and hearths of Luna Salada add a real sense of place, especially when adorned with traditional throws and colorful artworks. The cozy theme continues with log burners, low lighting and an overall ambience that helps you feel at home. Another benefit of Luna Salada is the location, just 20-minutes from Uyuni Town and with panoramic views across the plains towards Uyuni Salt Flats, best enjoyed from the outdoor terrace or hot tub in the hotel’s spa. And, given the remote setting of Luna Salada, stargazing on a clear night is reason enough to stay at this special salt hotel.

Rooms at Luna Salada

The 49 Guestrooms of Luna Salada are split between Standard, Deluxe and Suite categories, all made entirely from salt and coming with traditional woven fabrics and enough amenities to make your stay comfortable. Most also come with views of the plains, which are highly recommended. Rooms at Luna Salada have heating if you need it, and the Suite category is well worth the upgrade if staying for a few nights as the floorplan is significantly bigger. Overall, the main draw of staying at Luna Salada is less the opulence of the guestrooms and more the location and experience, though the local touches and salt-brick construction give these rooms a noticeably welcoming charm.
