Located in the middle of the Huilo Huilo Reserve in Chile, the Nothofagus Hotel & Spa is a wonderfully quirky tree house hotel specially built for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a touch of class in the immensity of the Patagonian Andes’s environment.
As the name suggests, this unique tree house hotel is built in the shape of a Nothofagus tree, also known as a southern beech, which is native to Patagonia. Made entirely of wood, the Nothofagus Hotel & Spa rises into the tree canopy and blends in with its natural environment, almost becoming part of the forest itself.
Comprising 55 rooms and distributed over seven floors, each room of the Nothofagus Hotel & Spa has its own private balcony with spectacular panoramic views out into the forest and beyond. Every single room also has its own en suite bathroom with natural heated spring water. The first two of seven floors host the standard rooms with twin or double beds and ensuite bathrooms. Level three and four feature the Superior Room categories which also come with a balcony.
Each circular floor looks down upon the lobby, where a single southern beech tree grows through the middle, towards the open sky above. Floors can be accessed via a gentle circular ramp with a smooth slope that winds through each level of the hotel like the interior coils of a tree, or via the panoramic lift. This is where Eco-friendliness meets true luxury with a bar, restaurant and full spa facilities.
Guests who want to make the most of their stay at the Huilo Huilo Reserve can book one of many self-guided tours around the reserve to the nearby La Leona’s Falls, the Trail of the Spirits, Huilo Huilo Falls and wildlife trails to see deer and wild boars. Nothofagus Hotel & Spa is located 2 km from The Volcanoes Museum and 65 km from Panguipulli Bus Terminal. Guests flying into Santiago airport, will need to next fly out from the International Airport Comodoro Arturo Merino Benitez to arrive at either Valdivia or Temuco. After a one and a half to two hour flight, from those locations, it is necessary to either rent a car or reserve a shuttle from the hotel ahead of time.
