You will have an over the top room with a rain shower, indoor and outdoor tubs, fireplace, sitting area and mini bar. Imagine yourself with a private riverside view or lake view and a Michelin rated chef preparing fresh local cuisine, most from onsite from the Vira Vira Hacienda’s gardens and ranch. You will have two full days included tours to observe the weather in the area. The tours are tailored to what you want to see and do. There are volcano hikes, fishing, rafting and many other offerings.

A total solar eclipse will pass overhead midday December 14. The Hacienda Hotel Vira Vira – is set in a beautiful and unique location close to Pucón, Chile. It features a 23 ha native park along the shores of the Liucura River and offers an oasis of peace and recreation. The Vira Vira Hotel brings a new concept of vacation to life – we call it “The Elegance of Adventure” which means that a large range of exclusive activities and excursions are part of your “all inclusive” stay with the Hotel.

“The smell of wood and pine will awaken your senses for days,” said Daniel Oppliger after staying at the Vira Vira for two nights. “It was like Sandals on steroids.”

The location is perfect for the eclipse, slightly elevated from the lake and ringed by the volcano and national parks.  The open space at Vira Vira will make for fantastic photography and observing the solar eclipse.
