This masterpiece by architect Alejandro Bustillo sits on a grassy knoll surrounded by three lakes with a backdrop of cliffs and snow-covered mountains. Spacious, tastefully appointed rooms in the historic main building feature locally crafted, one-of-a-kind furniture pieces, while those in the newer Lake Moreno wing incorporate a more modern aesthetic. The reading room, bridge room, immaculate Llao Llao Salon, and other public areas are equally appealing. Local wood—alerce,
cypress, and hemlock—has been used for the walls along a 91-meter (300-foot) hallway, where paintings by local artists are displayed. A lunch or dinner reservation will also get you in to see one of the world's most beautiful hotels.
