Hotel Tayka del Desierto, Uyuni
- Rates & Booking
LocationAddress: Desierto de Siloli - Sud Lipez
"El Hotel del Desierto" (spanish for Hotel of the Desert) is only 90 minutes away from the Red Lagoon (Laguna Colorada), amidst a beautiful scenery of high Andean desert landscapes.
Tayka del Desertio is not actually in Uyuni at all - in fact it's a full day's drive out of town. However, it's listed under Uyuni because despite being a full day away, it's still the closest town!
The design of the Hotel Tayka del Desierto (Ojo de Perdiz) blends harmoniously into the stunning landscape in which it has been built - the impressive Siloli desert expanse with its untouched towering mountains in the background.
The main attractions in the area are Laguna Colorada and Laguna Verde, as well as the volcanic fumes of Sol de Manana, thus providing our guests with a great number of activities to choose from while staying at the lodge.
This site is easily accessible from Uyuni (220 km) and San Pedro de Atacama, Chile (Atacama Desert, 200 km).
The Hotel Tayka del Desierto may be the most remote hotel in existence. There is literally nothing anywhere within many miles of this place. You are almost on the Chilean border. It exists solely to support the tours of Bolivia's remote and rugged desert southwest, and the supplies are all shipped in from Uyuni.
The hotel was built by four local families and is very much in tune with its environment, with friendly service and local food.
Room FacilitiesThe rooms and common areas are cozy and comfortable.
Capacity : only 47 guests in basic but comfortable rooms. There are solar panels on the roof that generate electricity and hot water in the evenings.
Don't expect luxury and all the trappings which seem essential to the modern traveller. Enjoy this lovely place with great character and a lot of charm.
Allow at least two full days to explore this area. Consider at least 5 days/4 nights for a more complete expedition (eg. Uyuni Salt Flats + Sud Lipez). Ask us for our special extensions to Chile, Argentina and Peru.
