Magma's lakeside setting close to Pucon and eco-friendly, close-to-nature domes really appealed to us. The lakeside setting was wonderful (bring shoes to walk on the stones) but the domos don't work. They were baking hot during the day with the sun streaming in through the top opening and freezing at night. Sure, there was ac/heating but that's not eco friendly.... More

My wife and I did not know what to expect and were surprised by the "domos", igloo shaped cabanas by the lake. Very nice view, comfortable bed, nice people run the place. Bottom line... good value for the money.

I spent 3 great days at the Magma Lodge just outside of Pucón. Accommodations were in individual "domes" set in the woods by Lake Villarica. The domes are simply but interestingly furnished, with wooden floors, a comfortable bed with a big fluffy duvet, huge windows, and a circular skylight at the top of each one giving a view of the...

Magma Lodge has an amazing location right on Lake Villarica. The view from my dome was awesome. The dome was clean and comfortable. It had heat and (i think) ac. We were able to borrow their kayaks and paddle around the lake. Breakfast in bed was a great treat every morning! It was our favorite place we stayed in all... More

Fantastic, creative, unique. Really liked the accommodation here.  The bungalows, which are more like deluxe igloos, are comfortable, well-appointed and different from anything I have ever stayed in. All bungalows have lake views and some include an upstairs bedroom.  The breakfast is ok, the staff are friendly and enthusiastic. Pucon town centre is a short drive from the lodge.  Recommended,

Magma Lodge is set in a wonderful location with domes under pine trees a few meters away from the lake shore. It is an incredibly romantic setting where you can watch the sunset from your wooden balcony sipping a Pisco Sour. However, this in not a luxury hotel and your expectations regarding comfort should not be compared to one. The... More

Magma Lodge is a unique place, set in gorgeous surroundings on the shores of the beautiful lake. The rooms spread under the tall pine trees have been constructed as semi-permanent units on wooden platforms surrounded by a large terrace with washing-up area. But the most unique aspect of these rooms is that they are canvas domes, reminiscent of an igloo/slash... More

Great place to stay! The kids really loved the area around the DOMOS and the Canopy! The breakfast could be a bit better! In hot days the domos could get very warm but at night they cool down. Overall a great place to stay!

Great and very romantic place to stay in Lake district. Little volcano houses are new, clean and beautiful. Lovely interior. I prefer two floor ones although they are a bit more away from the lake. Bathroom was freezing, but we got a heater so it was ok. Staff is just amazing - everybody is so kind and helpfull, they are... More
