Resting on the cusp of the awe-inspiring Salar de Uyuni, the Palacio de Sal (literally the “Salt Palace”) is one of the most distinctive and special places you can stay in the world. As its name suggests, this is a hotel made almost entirely of salt, sourced from the vast Uyuni Salt Flats. Picture walls, furnishings, and sculptures hewn from salt, beautifully accented with tasteful touches like wood-clad floors and colourful rugs. You get a real sense of space at the Palacio de Sal, thanks to tall ceilings and huge windows that bring you closer to the vast sky and salt flats just outside.

Rooms at Palacio de Sal

Your retreat at Palacio de Sal features a domed ceiling, crafted with salt bricks. Even the bed bases here are made from salt.

You’ll find a minibar, heating, private bathroom, and electric blankets, plus living areas in the suites.
