Jardines de Mallku Cueva

image

This hotel was a real surprise.  I did not expect such comfort south of Uyuni.

Jardines de Mallku Cueva is in Villa Mar, some x miles south of Uyuni and x miles northeast of the Sol de la Mañana “geyser” field.  That puts it about 90 minutes from Sol de la Mañana, so if you want to actually be there at dawn, you’ll need to be on the road at 5:30 – early, but not a bad deal considering what I’ve heard about the options near Laguna Colorada.

Anyway, to get back to the hotel, Jardines is built onto the bottom of a cliff face and at least one of the rooms has the stone of the cliff as one of its walls. It’s pretty cool looking.  The rooms are not big, but when keeping warm is a top priority, that’s an advantage.  They have water-based radiator heating in bedrooms and bathrooms, which is nice, and electric blankets for those really cold winter-at-13,500 ft. nights.  Tonight the mercury is expected to hit 12° F.

The food is is also very good with dinner and breakfast buffets included in the rate and a staff that seems to make every effort to be helpful.
