Get to know a bit more about the Hotel
Mallín Colorado, a cozy, secluded countryside with four cabins, constructed in 12 acres, facing the huge lake General Carrera, 4 hours south of the airport of Balmaceda and five hours from the city of Coyhaique.
From the hill upon, where the cabins are situated, you can appreciate the majestousity of the landscape and the panoramic views. The cabins are built with wide bow-windows incorporating the landscape to the inner decoration of the lodge.
Mallín Colorado is a unique log cabin resort, with fine oak floors and peeled cypress posts, wich give your stay a warm rustic elegance. These materials incorporate harmonically the landscape without "dirtying" it with strange elements.
We have equipped the cabins with all the comforts necessary for a complete relaxation time: box spring beds and authentic down, jacuzzi, burning chimneys, frigobar, etc.
The cabin Cypress (90 mts2.), for eight people, has a suite and two bedrooms with two and four single beds each and a second complete bathroom. Wide and comfortable living and dining room for big groups.
The cabin Ñirre (70 mts2.), for six people has a suite with private bathroom; two double bedrooms and a second complete bathroom. Living and dining room with burning chimney.

Mallín Colorado has been characterized from its beginnings by the excellent food that offers to its visitors. Home cooking is provided by the host family. They give each meal a special flavor. All the recipes are prepared exclusively using the products of the green garden and local meats and fish, prepared in a typical patagonian kitchen and in chilean clay pots. They highlight fine bakery like raspberry cakes, kneaded bread, butter cookies and many other fine delicattessen. Service to the cabins. The cabins have frigobar.
With the purpose that the visitor really exposes her spirit to strong experiences in contact with nature, PATAGONIA PACIFICA has organized varied outdoor activities, traveling remote roads, going into in the native forest or navigating on the crystalline waters of the Lake General Carrera.
