Amazing Escapes is preparing to open the first-of-its-kind luxury lodge on the Bolivian Altiplano at the end of February 2019. Kachi Lodge will sit atop the breathtaking natural landscape of the Uyuni Salt Flats, which sit at an altitude of 3,600 metres at the foot of the Tunupa Volcano.
The Dome camp looks like a space station creation, and is comprised of a series of metallic structures featuring transparent panels on the front and on top. There are six luxury bedroom domes. The Lodge domes offer the creature comforts of a hotel room, with a private bathroom, comfortable bedding, interior decoration and heating. Inside, a wooden screen has been mounted to protect the shower area, the ceramic washbasins and the restrooms.
A central dome contains a communal dining table, surrounded by dozens of oversized hemp cushions arranged around copper floor-lanterns.
Offering original experiences linked to the local culture and environment, Kachi Lodge will also deliver top culinary experience thanks to its partnership with multi-award-winning restaurant Gustu in La Paz.
Gustu restaurant was established in early 2013, aiming to become a showcase of the great potential of Bolivia’s production, culture and biodiversity. Elected best restaurant in La Paz in 2016, the team works uniquely and exclusively with Bolivian products. Gustu has a strong relationship with each of its suppliers, seeking to consolidate the Bolivian productive chain, beginning with the boost of fair business activities.
An experience not to be missed is a hike in the morning to a nearby “island” covered with giant cacti and offering amazing views on the Salar. Another option is a visit to the charming village of Coquesa and its mummies in a cave.
The interesting archeological site of Alcaya, an old pre-Colombian city near Salinas, is located just over an hour away, while the adventurous traveller may wish to climb the lower lip of Tunupa volcano crater.
Full board rates at Kachi Lodge are US$1,980 per person on a double tent basis, for a two-night minimum stay. Extra nights areUS$990 per person.
It has a maximum capacity of six units for 12 adult guests.
