Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira Pucón
Pucón has turned into a hypnotic escape for nature lovers and adventure seekers for ages. The city is fairly but hit out into the surrounding countryside and you’re rewarded with a bucolic picture postcard hideaway in which dewy-nosed volcano and cows peaks vie for the attention among lush meadows and mystical woods — all this wizardry of nature is showcased at the grounds of Vira Vira that sprawl across the shores of this Liacura river. It is a 90-minute drive from the closest airport (Temuco) that can be a 60-minute flight in the capital. Hence, getting here requires preparation but you’re rewarded with easily the best thing to happen to the Chilean Lake District’s resort scene thus far.
Style & personality
Implementing a near perfect balance between state lair and super-soaked-luxury hacienda, elegance detract from each fastidiously thought corner. The house is an ode to the property it occupies and also a lucid labor of love; the proprietor bunch are definitely head-over-heels infatuated by both the area and their undertaking. Warm and welcoming, fashionable and refined, nothing is left to chance. Interiors have a unique mixture of regional artwork and Mapuche artefacts and on colder times you will find roaring fires indoors and outside. We love the hot tubs scattered around the grounds that provide spectacular sundowner chances to take at the star of the series — character.
Service & amenities
The Swiss owners, Michael and Claudia Paravicini invest the majority of the year on site, meaning the service is exemplary and as friendly and warm as the hosts themselves that are usually about to say hello. It’s possible to combine Claudia, a trained yoga instructor, for the morning classes — a superbly private clinic, testimony to the personal attention you get here.
There’s not any pool, but with a river running past the doorway and a good deal of star-soaked spa you likely won’t miss this. The overwhelmingly comprehensive excursion menu can be expertly implemented by excellent regional guides, showcasing everything from trekking to neighborhood weaving and horse-riding to rafting — download prior to going and pick carefully, or remain for a month!
All 18 rooms are impressively large with blonde woods and neighborhood hand-woven materials mixing with the perspectives out of the floor-to-ceiling windows. The riverside suites have wood-burning stoves and outdoor hot tubs — really some of the very beautiful hide-away-from-it-all rooms I’ve observed, and the brief walk from the major construction assists the unplugged vibe.
The rooms at the main resort are also brilliant, channelling the exact same interior design, only a bit smaller but with beautiful balconies and spacious windows angled to allow the morning sunlight flood in. To get a more relaxed vibe there’s also an choice to keep in one of the first rooms of their owners’ hacienda; and also to get a super-special event there’s the magic, hidden-away Ruca Suite.
Food & beverage
Food here actually is in a league of its own. The carefully planned place menus certainly consider duration of stay of balancing and guests dinner and lunches. The beautifully arranged blossom power dishes trickle with edible flowers from the garden; native and global recipes have been blended into simple ambrosial fusions.
Pretty much all components are out of the grounds’ lovely vegetable garden or home-reared livestock, testimony to the farm to fork ethos. It is healthful food for gourmets and certainly worth crying about. Superb. Breakfasts follow the subject — a fantastic buffet with yogurt out of the on site dairy and exquisitely baked breads. Ensure that you purchase one of the green juices in keeping with all the healthy vibe.
