A Hotel Built of Salt Blocks
Sitting on the edge of the largest salt flat in the world, stands an amazing and unusual hotel and spa built with one million blocks of salt.
The Palacio de Sal (Palace of Salt), located in Bolivia, took two years to reconstruct after being dismantled in 2002 and almost everything is built from the salt flat. This includes the chairs, tables, beds and even the swimming pool and golf course.
The hotel has 16 twin rooms and 8 double rooms, a sauna, steam room, whirlpool and of course, their own saltwater baths.
A hotel spokesperson states, "Our dining room is indescribable. Guests can enjoy our exclusive and exquisite meals prepared on the basis of salt, flame and lamb meat from the region, or salted chicken."
Some parts of the hotel need to be maintained and rebuilt each year after the rainy season due to water damage.
