This Bolivian resort is built on the world’s largest salt flat – even the furniture is made from blocks of the seasoning favourite.
Staying in a hotel made entirely of salt – from the walls to the beds – is bound to leave you a little thirsty.
The Palacio de Sal hotel was built from one million 35cm blocks of the stuff over a two-year period and sits on the world’s largest salt flat, the Salar de Uyuni.
The Bolivian resort has 16 rooms, a dining room and a bar – you can guess what they are made of.
At least there is little chance of hungry guests running out of seasoning – especially as the menu is salt-themed, with the speciality being chicken salt.
However if you wanted to verify that the chairs and tables are indeed made from blocks of compressed salt, you could find yourself put through the mill – licking them is strictly prohibited.
If you’re feeling ground down, you can make use of the saunas and steam rooms – and, of course, salt baths.
