Portillo is easily one of Chile’s best ski areas, though the price of accommodation in the main hotel may not be to everyone’s liking. Luckily, the Octagon Lodge is perfect for small groups of economically minded skiers, who still want all the benefits of a holiday in Chile’s premiere ski resort. The Octagon is located just a few meters from the main hotel, and its guests are entitled to the same wide variety of services as everyone else. Octagon guests eat in the same dining room, can use the same gym, swim in the same heated pool, and kick back in the same fabulous bar. The difference is that Octagon guests get dorm style accommodation. Each room comes with around four bunks. Guests are charged per bed, rather than per room, making it perfect for lone travelers. Likewise, the cosy rooms are also great for small groups.

Accommodation at the Octagon is typically bundled with the Portillo’s famous ski packages, which include everything from meals to ski passes. Guests have unlimited access to the slopes, along with free access to the resort’s extensive range of facilities. Some of these facilities include a fully functional gym, heated pool and spa, games room, bar and childcare area. Everything comes included in the one package price, making your holiday as stress free as possible.


The Octagon Lodge features dorm style rooms with four bunks each. Each room comes with an ensuite bathroom, and a small living area in the center of the room. Some rooms can come with an additional bed on request. Meals are eaten over in the main hotel, where guests can also enjoy a range of facilities and other services. Among the hotel’s facilities are a heated spa, gym, childcare and even a cinema.
