Nestled in 12 acres of private gardens and woods above the shores of Lake Villarrica close to Pucón, Hotel Antumalal is a unique experience in itself - a true modern classic with the extraordinary backdrop of a snow capped volcano.
Built in the late 1940’s, Bauhaus style, Antumalal’s vibrant, modern architecture fits harmoniously with the setting. Walls of glass overlook the lake alowing light to flood in, and wood-panelled walls, soft white carpets, fireplaces and unique 50’s style furniture create an elegant, clean ambiance enjoyed over the years by amongst others Neil Armstrong, James Stewart, Emma Thompson and the Queen & Prince Philip.
Each bedroom, panelled with native wood and warmed by a fire, has a wall-sized window for perfectly framed landscapes. Linens and rugs are locally made, and flowers come from the garden. Each en suite room has a fireplace, walk-in closet, bath robes, hairdryer, telephone, flat screen television, bathroom products and mineral water. Homemade chocolates await guests every evening.

Dishes are prepared with the freshest local ingredients, including seasonal organic produce that is harvested daily from the vegetable garden and greenhouse.
