Hotel Antumalal is a mid-century masterpiece–an architectural gem resting amid three acres of gardens and forest. Its lovingly preserved structure and furnishings recall a time when Pucon was the secret hideaway of Chile’s patrician families, literati, and celebrities.
From its hillside perch, the hotel overlooks a fairy tale landscape of Patagonian woodlands, the snowcapped Villarica Volcano, and the sparkling shore of Lake Villarica. The name antumalal means ‘sun farm’ in the Mapudungun (the Mapuche tongue)–a reference to this location’s unforgettable sunsets.
Just 1.2 miles from the town of Pucon, Antumalal is within easy reach of some of the region’s best dining and outdoor adventure options.
The hotel was conceived in the 1940s and completed in 1950. Its architecture was influenced by Bauhaus and Frank Lloyd Wright. Picture windows fill the public spaces with light, and take full advantage of the lake views.
Guests at Antumalal can explore its garden paths, viewpoints, vegetable garden, and a lakeside beach. Native vegetation predominates the hillside, punctuated by volcanic rock pools and flowerbeds.
