Hotel Antumalal

Map
Km. 2 Camino Villarrica Pucón, Pucón,
Set in the eastern corner of Chile’s glacier-topped Lake District, Pucón was barely a blip on the travelers’ map when the Hotel Antumalal set the standard in 1950. More than 60 years later, the Bauhaus-style gem remains one of the iconic places to stay in a destination popular for adventure experiences and its proximity to Chile’s southern wine regions. Conceptualized by Chilean architect Jorge Elton, who collaborated with the Czech owners Don Guillermo and Catalina Pollak, the streamlined, cylindrical hotel is set improbably on the edge of a volcanic cliff on the southeastern shore of Lake Villarrica; panoramic windows along the outer edge allow for unobstructed views of the chestnut and pine trees and the deep blue lake. The 16 rooms, complete with log-burning fireplaces, sheepskin rugs, and retro furniture (tree-trunk nightstands; original 1950s tables), may be on the smaller side, but not surprisingly, most travelers spend their time outdoors. More than 12 acres of forest surround the property, and guests take in the nearby waterfalls and gardens from the hotel’s stone paths and private terraces.
