In a vast salt flat this hotel offers a rare once-in-a-lifetime experience.
This is one hotel that's worth its salt — literally! Located in southwest Bolivia in Salar de Uyuni, the world's largest salt flat, the 30-room Palacio de Sal is built almost entirely out of salt. Walls, floors, tables, beds, sculptures...you name it and salt is its main ingredient. Even the star-gazing viewpoint is constructed with salt. Not surprisingly, salt is showcased at the house restaurant (the specialty is salt chicken), and along with a sauna and steam room, the property has a saltwater pool. As for those who think this place is too quirky, we disagree. Its beautiful ghostly presence in a vast salt desert makes it an experience not to be missed.
