If you’re a craving a salty snack, it’s probably best to stay away from this luxury hotel constructed entirely from salt cubes.

From floor to ceiling, wall to wall, and even assorted furniture, Palacio de Sal—or “Salt Palace”-- may one of the tastiest hotel properties in the world. 

Located on Bolivia's eastern shore of the Great Salar de Uyuni – the world’s largest salt flat— the  hotel was built with the abundant natural resources that surround the property. The hotel buildings are comprised of a million blocks of salt and took two years to construct, according the Daily Mail

Initially created in the mid 90s, it has since been fully remodeled to include a full service spa, billiard room and dining hall.

While cozying up in a salt-lined bedroom might sound like roughing it, each room contains all the modern amenities of a luxury hotel with its own solarium. At the spa, guests can rejuvenate at the hotel’s steam rooms and saunas—but of course the hotel is known for its cleansing saltwater baths.

Prices start at just $142 per night to sleep beneath a dome of sodium chloride bricks.
