“Really Fun Stay!”
Reviewed 26 July 2013

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 of Chile. Would definitely stay again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the second dome on the left side of the property (facing the lake) and had a BEAUTIFUL...

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.

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 domes are effectively luxury tents which obviously affects the termic and acoustic isolation. I did not mind the differences in temperature since you can always use the air conditioning and the separate heater but I was a bit disappointed with the noise of the passing cars in the background. It was not very loud but it takes away the sensation of being fully immersed in nature. If it wasn't for that I would have given it a 5 rating.

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 tee-pee. They are quite spacious and cleverly designed, those accommodating familes have a mezzanine with a double bed. The bathrooms are not very big, but well equipped and maintained. The common area is a confortable lounge (with a T with a bar and restaurant with a very large outdoor wooden terrace facing the lake where meals are served (breakfast and "a la carte")' Guests can enjoy the beach, lovely walks, fishing from the pier and kayaking/canoeing.
The young management and staff are very friendly and helpful. They can help organise transfers from Temuco airport and help in chosing and reserving the many activities which the region offers (rafting, fishing, hikes, visits to the different "termas" etc..).
Everybody in our family truly enjoyed our stay, including our 2 teenage boys.
I highly recommend a stay at Lodge!

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 just great. Nobody speaks english, but that is so in most places in Chile.
Don't bring kids - it is a romantic / honeymoon place.
Breakfast in bed every morning for no additional cost. We really enjoyed the place and even changed our travel plans to come back and stay few more days.
