Samadhi Eco Resort in Chile - Epic Eco Travel

September 30, 2018 by Epic Eco Travel

Samadhi is a brand new Eco resort in Chile opening in December of 2018. Samadhi was founded in 2016 after 20 years of dreaming and planning by two life-long best friends. Their recycled shipping container cabins and tube rooms will allow you to wake up to an amazing view that transports you into the life of the forest and expansive landscape. The floor to ceiling windows will enhance your experience, offering a complete immersion into nature through clear panoramic views. The resort is already working on meeting the evaluation criteria defined by the Global Sustainable Tourism Council to be both EarthCheck Certified and S Seal Certified (Chile’s Distinction in Sustainable Tourism). Additionally, Samadhi is a proud member of Pack for a Purpose, an initiative that allows travelers to make a lasting impact at the local school. Samadhi buys local products when possible and uses energy efficient practices to help reduce carbon emissions.

After some research on the HelpX site and a great Skype interview with Samantha, we head to the small town of Vilcun to join the Samadhi Eco Resort! We will spend 4 weeks in an absolutely fantastic setting.
