A Magic Geyser / Mountain Hotel (that you really can stay in)

So this is some Lord of Rings… er, shoot.

There’s a mountain that has a freaking geyser in it that you can stay in overnight.

And it’s an actual hotel.


This hotel, located in Chile (not to be confused with a similarly named one in Costa Rica), has a rustic style, but with high-end amenities.

Rates on the off-season are around $175 USD a night, and include a welcome drink, plus use of the spa facilities.

There’s only thirteen rooms in the whole place, but it’s an experience unlike any other.

From the video:

When we first came across this green, mountain-like resort, we had to do a double take to see if it was for real! Called the Magic Mountain Lodge, the 13 room hotel looks like it came straight from middle earth. The lodge sits in the private Huilo-Huilo Biological Reserve in northern Chile’s Patagonia and is a celebration of the rich natural heritage that the preserve aims to protect. And get this– visitors enter the establishment on a suspended rope bridge and are greeted by a cascade of water coming down from the cone shaped green roof.

The Lodge sits on a diverse forest region in northern Patagonia and is a base camp at the Hulio Hulio preserve for ecotourists looking to spot a puma or explore the local waterfalls. The hotel is cone shaped with dormer windows peaking out of its vegetated and stone façade. A water spot on top pours over the roof, drenching the plants and anyone at the base of the building. The playful design is intended to evoke an ancient legend that speaks of a magic mountain in the area that grants wishes.

In addition to all this, there’s a restaurant and bar inside, and a selection of hot tubs made out of tree stumps.

I’m feeling relaxed already, so if anyone wants to send me to Chile… now’s the time to do so.
