Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira
When founders Michael and Claudia Paravicini discovered a swath of virgin land along the Liucura River, just a one-hour flight from Santiago, they immediately knew that they needed to share this paradise with others. They conceived of Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira to be a natural oasis for adventure lovers. From the hotel’s doorstep, guests can hike to volcanoes, horseback ride through ancient forests, and white water raft or kayak down the roaring river on 50-hectares of pristine wilderness. With the environment in mind, the Paravicini’s also built the Hacienda farm in order to stock the Hotel restaurant with sustainable, fresh, natural ingredients. As much attention was paid to each individual room. Handcrafted with care, the room you occupy will be unlike any other on the property. All are decorated with Chilean woven throws, roughly-hewn desks and stools that reference the natural surroundings and add contrasts to the silky pine floors and walls, and glass sitting areas for admiring the outdoors and bird watching. Suites are set on the river with outdoor slate patios and some with riverside Jacuzzi.
