“This hotel has a lot of history and feels like something of a national treasure. The Bauhaus-style building features wood-panelled rooms and suites, while chalets and a villa also dot the grounds. Fireplaces and handmade Mapuche rugs are a cosy touch, and large picture windows offer spectacular views. I loved that you can bathe in hot springs. The unique design of this property is particularly fascinating – and very photography-worthy.”
