Located in the heart of Chile’s Lake District and tucked away within a private 22 hectare estate, this excellent &Beyond property is one of the top options for a visit to this stunning region. It doesn't take long for most guests to feel completely rejuvenated and recharged once they step into this peaceful oasis.
The reserve is swathed with natural lagoons, rivers and sensational views of the Villarrica Volcano. Vira Vira is part of a working farm and produce from the organic vegetable garden, state-of-the-art cheese factory and freshly-grown produce finds its way to a fantastic menu of Chilean-inspired dishes.
Daily excursions include trekking in the nearby national parks; horseback riding in the cordilleras and scenic helicopter flights over the Villarrica Volcano. Those visiting Chile in the winter have the option for heli-skiing though South America should not be compared with the European Alps or the US for die-hard skiers. Fly fishing can also be arranged as well as mountain biking, and a variety of water sports.
The lodge aims to deliver a feeling of warmth and charm alongside a combination of traditional and contemporary design. Enormous windows in the main lodge allow for light to fill every room and bring the views in. At night fire pits give a soft glow while guests gaze up at a blanket of stars from one of the outdoor hot tubs. A world-class spa provides a deeper level of relaxation as well as daily yoga classes.
