Tree houses as hotels are certainly not a new concept, but La Montaña Mágica (The Magic Mountain) Hotel is not just another hotel. Located within the Huilo Huilo Private Natural Reserve, Chile, it is without a doubt one of most unique hotels in South America. This whimsical eco-lodge is shaped like a volcano and complete with every modern comfort, and features cascading water that covers the exterior, giving it a fairy-tale like look. Makes you imagine encountering some character out of Lord of the Rings saga.
The hotel is decorated in a natural and cozy mountain style with local wood and stone. Windows, walls, doors and stairs are all carved out of the local rustic woods. Large windows of the hotel add warm tones to the wood. Each nine room is named for a different local species of bird and all of them have private well-equipped bathrooms.
The major attraction here is hot Tubs in the Forest, made of huge trunks of trees. They are filled with hot water and are set on a platform overlooking the forest. This is really a place to take a very good glass wine and relax.
The hotel facilities include: a restaurant with local specialties, bar, sauna, mini-golf court and internet access. Mountain Area’s Activities: hiking, trekking, horseback riding, rafting and mountain biking.
