Palacio de Sal , Bolivia

The creation of the Hotel Palacio de Sal in the Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia, was in 1998 by the wild initiative of an Hidalgo man, Juan Quesada Valda, pioneer in the salt hotels worldwide.

Juan’s innovative and creative idea of building a hotel made of salt was materialized in what he called Palacio de Sal.

On the banks of the majestic Salar de Uyuni you will find the unusual Hotel Palacio de Sal, the first of its kind, built entirely of salt and in harmony with the landscape that surrounds it, the perfect place to recharge with a special energy, the one that only nature can give.

With unique architecture, its objective was to provide to the visitors of the salt flats a place to find a balance with nature and enjoy a pleasant and unforgettable rest. In 2004 the hotel was moved to the banks of the salt flats with the main purpose of providing a service according to the needs of guests.

Since then, the exotic, modern and native are combined to create, in over 4,500 square meters, the first salt hotel in the world.
