The Salt Hotel: Please do not lick the walls



In the dining room of the Salt Hotel of Bolivia , the salt is always on the table. In fact, the salt is the table.

Along with photographer Robert Dam , Oddee's crew went on July 2008 to this unique hotel located over the Uyuni Flats --world's largest salt flat--, in the southwestern part of the country .

The hotel was built in 1993 by a salt artisan who saw a mint in the number of tourists looking for places to stay while visiting the flats. The lodge has 15 bedrooms, a dining room , a living room and a bar.

The buildings's roof, and bar are built of salt and even the floor is covered with salt granules. The walls are made of salt blocks stuck together with a cement-like substance made of salt and water. During rainy seasons, the walls are strengthened with new blocks, while the owners ask the guests to avoid licking the walls to prevent deterioration.





The Hotel's Swimming pool. Really.



Please don't lick the... too late














Oh come on, it was begging for it...
