Luxury property with Royal guestlist, spa and stunning views
On a wooded point overlooking the lake, between gardens, terraces, and waterfalls sits Hotel Antumalal. In the style of the 1950s, the furniture blends native wood, iron, and rope, creating a unique style.
Meaning "corral of the sun" in the ancient mapuche language, Antumalal's vibrant and modern architecture fits harmoniously with its setting. The main sitting room extends above a cliff with an entire wall of glass overlooking the lake. Wood-paneled walls, soft white carpets and an immense fireplace create an elegant yet simple ambiance.
Wood is used as a decorative touch throughout Antumalal's interior décor-from the walls, to the tables, lamps and chairs.
This property is so elegant that it has hosted visits from a star studded guest list, including Queen Elizabeth II.
Every bedroom is furnished with a large wall-sized window (instead of a television):
the landscape is framed in each room
Each of the 22 rooms is paneled with native wood and warmed by a fireplace, offering a cozy environment from where you can enjoy spectacular views of Lake Villarrica. Each room has a private bath, fireplace and a panoramic view of the lake.

BAR & RESTAURANT
Since 1950 the Restaurant Parque Antumalal has been a culinary tradition in Pucon and the IX region. Originally attracting visitors far and wide to sample its traditional European kuchenes y tortas, the restaurant has evolved over the years to offer some of the finest dining in southern Chile.
The hotel was built on a rough and challenging rocky hillside, only 2 km from Pucón. It was a graceless piece of land that the architect and owners transformed into the lovely native park that surround the building today. The construction of Antumalal began in 1945 and lasted 5 years. The design was conceived by Guillermo Pollak, his wife Catalina, and the Chilean architect Jorge Elton, who had recently graduated from the school of architectures of Universidad Católica de Chile. At this time, the influence of the Bauhaus style influenced the designs of a new generation of professionals.Antumalal was a pioneer in the development of Pucón as an important tourist center.
Chilean airlines, fly in only one hour from Santiago daily to Temuco. From Temuco you can rent a car or request a transfer to the hotel, which is about an hour and a half away. (In summer there are several direct flights from Santiago to Pucón).
The Hotel team can propose and book a wide variety of activities including;
CLIMB VILLARRICA VOLCANO
Snowcapped Villarrica looms majestically over Pucón at 2,840 meters (9318 feet) above sea level. The excursion begins at 7:30 a.m., when you meet with professional guides who will accompany you to the summit of the volcano.
Equipment and transportation are provided. After a four- to six-hour climb, you will be able to look into the crater of an active volcano—perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The summit offers a spectacular view, with other active volcanoes—Llaima, Choshuenco, Quetrupillán, Lanin, and Lonquimay—visible on the horizon.
End the day with a relaxing soak in the pool at Hotel Antumalal, a drink on the terrace, or a well-deserved therapeutic massage.
