The Magic Mountain Hotel

Rising out of the Chilean forest is a volcanic shaped hotel complete with water in the place of lava


Though the hotel is shaped like a volcano, spews water from its top, has a cable bridge leading to its front door, and often has an fantastic covering of moss and plant life making it look like a hobbit home, what makes the Magic Mountain Hotel truly magical is its location.

Located within the Huilo Huilo Private Natural Reserve, the hotel is nestled among the natural world. Among the things at the reserve are the Huilo-Huilo Falls, Pudu, the world's smallest deer species, and the longest zip line system in South America.

The Magic Mountain Hotel itself is built from local wood and stone and each of the nine rooms are equipped with modern amenities, large windows to look out at the forest, and each room is named after a different local species of bird.

Among the offerings of the hotel are hot tubs "made out of huge trunks of trees, dug out, and then filled with hot water perched on a deck overlooking the forest." A mini golf course is built into the forest itself, using the natural world as the obstacles, and there are various outdoor activities such as horseback riding, rafting, and hiking.
