It is all very well staying in the best five star hotels and taking day trips to visit natural wonders but haven’t you wished during those early morning starts that the hotel had been built a little bit closer. Our Blink Dome Camp is the answer to this and then some. A temporary luxury structure built ON the Bolivian salt flat, Salar de Uyuni, it is a collection of futuristic-looking white pods containing everything you would need for a lavish trip, with the added feature of having unbeatable 360 degree views of one of the world’s most unusual natural beauties. It is tailor-made travel to the extreme and you will have quite literally never experienced anything like it.
The beauty of the Dome Camp is in its remote and secret location, somewhere in the mystical Salar de Uyuni. Salar de Uyuni is the world’s largest salt flat in Potosí, Bolivia. The closest town is Uyuni, which can be reached from the city of La Paz by a quick one hour flight. The salt flat itself is the most breath-taking destination in South America, home to things that need to be seen to be believed. There are lakes every colour of the rainbow, an abandoned town under an ominous volcano and even a Train Graveyard. With alpacas, llamas, vicunas and flamingos the only creatures you’ll see for miles this astonishing place makes for a secluded, luxury destination unlike any other.
The rooms are large white tented suites decorated with wooden design pieces which celebrate the indigenous influences in Bolivia. The structures have been sourced to suit the high altitude and cold climate environment of the salt flat perfectly and have interior heating and incredibly comfortable beds to keep you toasty warm as you sleep under the stars. The private bathrooms use solar panels to recycle their water, keeping it hot as well as environmentally friendly. The most impressive part of the rooms (and of the whole camp) is of course the unique and completely undisturbed views over the vast expanse of salt. Watching the sun rise over Salar de Uyuni from the comfort of your bed is an experience that our Blink Dome Camp, and nowhere else, can give you.
Why we like it
It is probably clear to you already why we love this place. Not only is the Dome Camp a stunning feat of design that is both completely practical and totally luxurious but it is more importantly something truly unique. A modern pod that compliments and contributes to its already surreal surroundings, there is honestly no better or more private way to see Bolivia’s salt flat. This nomad luxury living is the way of the future and you will get to experience it with us first.
