Palacio de Sal , Bolivia

The creation of the hotel 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.

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


The Hotel has 30 rooms (21 twin rooms and 9 double rooms) which catch the eye because they look like igloos built with salt blocks. All our rooms have private bathroom, hot and cold water and central or electric heating.
