The First Hotel made of Salt in the World Uyuni, Bolivia

El Palacio de Sal  00347727


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 100% made of salt (walls, ceilings, tables, chairs and others) was materialized in what he called Palacio de Sal.
With a unique and sui generis 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, a touristic attraction worth to be known.


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

Dining room

With windows that provide a frame for the salt flat with unique images, in a nice cozy ambient, the dining room has the amenities to enjoy our exclusive and exquisite meals prepared with base on salt.
We invite you to discover a unique flavor in all of our meals, made with llama and lamb meat from the zone or our house specialty: salt chicken.

Bar, viewing point and game room

The majesty of the hotel hits from its lobby, which rises imposing on salt, providing as well visitors as we who are from here, a warm welcome as a prelude to an experience that we guarantee you will be unique and exotic.
The bar and game room invite you to enjoy unforgettable moments while you play pool or have a relaxing time contemplating the immensity of the Salar around the heat of a fireplace.
As a special attraction we invite you to contemplate the immensity of the Salar, starry nights that exalts the spirit, the sunsets and the color changes in the salt flat, from the viewing point which is accessed from a lobby staircase made made of salt. A stunning 360 degree view specially conditioned to enjoy each moment as unique.
