Very nice choice! It is a small hotel with breakfast and dinner included. You will need a 4x4 if you’re driving in winter. Pros: - Very friendly staff - Delicious dinner and desserts - Well located (near the sky tracks) - Beautiful landscapes - Nice Dining - living room environment with a big fireplace in the middle. - Very nice...

The MI lodge is located at location with supurb surroundings when sitting in one of the hot tubs looking at the white mountain tops when the sun is going is truelly breath taking. The lodge itself has one HUGE disadvantage: the rooms. As the location is a perfect place if you are looking for relaxation the rooms of the lodge... More

Dear, Thank you very much for your comment. We're going to find a solution to isolate the sound in our rooms. We would like to know in which room you stayed because we made some changes in the past and the other guests said they had no problem with the noises. Thanks in advance for your reply, Have a nice...

This hotel oozed charm. The staff were great, rooms were great, the food was exceptional! It is located just far enough away from the action to relax in nature but with the convenience of being close enough for a walk into town. The ski area is about a 20 drive away and they have a great service to call on... More

To call this place a hotel and restaurant is a joke! Our room (s) were in a crudely refinished bathroom with the old faucets still in the wall. A curtain separated our "room" from the hallway. Can you believe a bar in Chile that doesn't know how to make a pisco sour? Ugly served meals in an ugly dining room.... More

Literally everything about the lodge was just wonderful! Not only was it a very comfortable lodge but the food and service were top-notch! All the meals (including desserts) were excellent. Enjoyed the outdoor heated hot tubs after skiing every day! However, I would have to say that the true highlight of this lodge is the quality of the service from... More

MI Lodge is a wonderful place to vacation. The staff is enthusiastic and helpful. Whatever you may need, they try to find some way to help you out. The food is great. The cheese souffle that was served one night as an appetizer deserves special mention. Also the soups. The lunch-time crepes were all good, and a couple of them... More

Great lodge, superb food, lots of activities for kids and parents. The French-Chilean food was top notch. The observatory and star gazing was fun and informative. My 8 yr old loved the indoor skate ramp and the ping pong, as well as the zip line at the Eco Park. Wife loved the biomass heated hot tubs. Toddler was welcome and... More

We rang this Lodge from the car having found it in Lonely Planet, Chile. We were keen to have a 'mountain' experience in Termas de Chillan & had originally thought we might stay at the Gran situated up on the mountain, we were very glad we did not go ahead with that plan. MI Lodge is fantastic, well appointed, spotlessly... More

I had such a great weekend at the M.I Lodge! The owners are great people, made me feel at home all weekend. Food was amazing, location was good, very quiet and peaceful. Outdoor hot tubs and the observatory topped off the weekend. Will definitely will be staying there when I go skiing in the winter!

We spent 4 rainy mid-December days in this comfortable lodge. The road up from Chillan is paved; the last few km into the lodge is on a network of gravel roads, rough at times but well-marked. The lodge itself is a true haven of good-living in a valley surrounded by mountain views, including a fine always snow-capped volcanic cone. The... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Situated in the Shangri-Là Valley, where the story tells that the life is eternal, M.I Lodge takes advantage of the unique beauty of the wood millennium, mountains, volcanoes, river of lava, fauna and flora. The lodge is situated only 8km from the ski center “Nevados de Chillan”. We speak English, French and Spanish. The lodge has 7 "superior" rooms and 2 "standard" rooms. Rooms have a capacity from 2 to 6 persons per room with private bathroom, double-glazed windows, central heating and many with a view of the Andes Cordillera. The maximum capacity of the lodge is 42 persons. The main room is composed of the dining area, lounge and bar. Large glass windows allow one to take advantage of the heat of the all-day sun and magnificent view. The central fireplace gives an original touch to this space. The open plan kitchen is in view to all and entices the appetite with its delicious aroma. The lodge’s terrace offers a panoramic view and is ideal to rest quietly on. ... more   less
