Staying in a new futuristic lodge on the Bolivian salt flats

Kachi Lodge is the first permanent site from the fly-camp wizard Vincent Raisière

For years, if you wanted to visit the deserted reaches of far-north Finnish forests or sleep under a sky sagging with stars in the Arabian Peninsula’s Empty Quarter (and had the six-digit wherewithal required), Vincent Raisière was your man; his company, Amazing Escapes (, has long specialised in fully bespoke (and fully indulgent) fly camps (from $9,900 per person). Now he’s bringing his know-how and style to a permanent site. The six futuristic domes of Kachi Lodge (from $1,980 per person) sit at 3,600m on the Uyuni Salt Flats of Bolivia like a very chicly appointed Martian folly. There is a communal lounge, food by chefs from Gustu, La Paz’s coolest restaurant – and deep-dive experiences in the surrounding Salar region, from exploring 1,200-year-old mummy tombs to salt-collecting tutorials from locals.
