Head to Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia where you will find the world’s largest salt flat. With its bright white sand it truly resembles a desert. Before you know it though you’ll have reached Kachi Lodge which is located in this vastness and near the Tunupa Volcano. While it’s true you are in the middle of emptiness, your eyes will set upon this property with its unique domes that serve as accommodations.
Kachi offers the best in luxury with cuisine by the chefs of Bolivia’s Gustu (a repeat winner on Latin America’s 50 Best Restaurants list). Each geodesic dome has clear panels that offer unobstructed views of the sky. Each dome comes with a private bathroom, luxurious interior, and heating. The bed is centrally placed to provide optimal sky viewing. Guides on-site offer educational classes on the constellations and Andean cosmology.
And the reason why people really want to come here is to mountain bike across the flats in the wilderness, hike the Kachi and Incahuasi islands, and discover 2,000-year-old mummies at Alcaya.
