Seated on the banks of the Salar de Uyuni, the highest salt pan in the world, the Luna Salada or Salt Moon hotel commands extraordinary panoramic views over this expanse of surreal white desert. Built using salt blocks and designed in the style of Bolivia’s indigenous homes with brightly woven rugs, artisanal furniture and glowing fireplaces, Luna Salada retains a wonderfully authentic feel of life in the Bolivian high plains. The rooms are spacious with private bathrooms, heating and hot water at any time of day. The hotel’s restaurant, Mirador Tanupa, is the place to watch the blue, purple and pink tie-dye sunsets disappear behind the silvery horizon in simple yet cosy surroundings. At 3658 meters above sea level, located thirty minutes from Uyuni town and ten minutes from Colchani, Luna Salada enjoys a unique location and offers guests a very immersive experience as well as various treks, hikes and tours in the prehistoric salt flats.
