At an elevation of 11,975 ft. above sea level, La Paz is known as the city that touches the clouds, the gateway to the otherworldly Salar de Uyuni salt flats and to Bolivian wine country. Opening in early 2022, the MET Hotel will provide the perfect sanctuary from which to explore your incredible surroundings, whilst offering a glimpse into Bolivian culture from within its own walls.

Marrying together modern design with an emphasis on Bolivian traditions, the exterior of the hotel draws inspiration from the local ruins of Pumapunku and Tiwanaku with its layered concrete walls shaped like perfectly cut geometric stones. Once inside, guests will find a unique contemporary art collection adorning the walls, including only the work of local artists, curated by Mariano Ugalde of Salar Art Gallery.

Home to the capital’s first outdoor rooftop bar, MET Hotel offers guests the chance to sip on signature cocktail whilst taking in scenic views over the mountainous city.

The Rooms

Boasting 75 bedrooms and one penthouse suite, which offers with panoramic views over La Paz and comes complete with its own art collection, the designers of this brand-new luxury hotel have been careful to honor the country’s unique identity. Modern décor pieces such as the pillows, celebrate the rich weavings from the Jalq’a culture in Southern Bolivia, and in the bedrooms, rug patterns take inspiration from local historic textiles from Tiwanaku, an ancient city in western Bolivia near the southeast shores of Lake Titicaca.

After a day exploring the hustle and bustle of La Paz with Aracari’s expert guide, MET Hotel is sure to provide the ideal sanctuary for some much-needed rest and relaxation.

The Location 

Overlooking the breath-taking Andean Mountains, the hotel is centrally located in Calacoto, one of the city’s trendiest neighborhoods, nearby to Mi Teleférico, an aerial cable car that offers epic views over La Paz.

The Kitchen

The all-day dining destination, Dominga transforms itself from a lively breakfast venue to a warmly lit atmospheric space. Reservations for the restaurant’s chef table is highly recommended, as is the local fare with a modern twist, such as Paiche fish carpaccio, served with amazonian vinaigrette and marraqueta crostinis.

With an emphasis on local ingredients, Dominga offers a distinctive dining experience based on contemporary cuisine that can be paired with a fine vintage from its wine cellar. The bar allows guests a space to indulge in local wines and spirits and includes the world’s largest collection of Singani, Bolivia’s national liquor. MET Hotel will also include La Paz’s first outdoor rooftop bar named Azotea offering scenic views and craft cocktails.
