07th Feb 2020

Ever wanted to sleep directly under the stars? Here are five of the most beautiful bubble dome hotels to stay in across the world

We all love a good hotel break.

It’s the buffet breakfast, the little soaps and the overheated rooms that encourage us to part with our money.

While a good luxury hotel break is a tried-and-tested formula, have you ever thought about staying in a bubble dome hotel? These hotels are a novelty. You are at one with nature without being outside and you can ponder the lengths of the universe from the comfort of a bed.

Across the world, there are some stunning options when it comes to bubble domes – from watching the Northern Lights to lying on the edge of a canyon and even enjoying all of the nature Ireland has to offer.

We have found five of the best and most beautiful hotels to stay in across the world.

Don’t blame us if you spend all your money after reading this.

Mauritius is a tropical paradise. With white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, it’s an island you never stop looking at. However, its tropical edges full of greenery and personality are just as beautiful. Bubble Lodge is one of the most original ways to experience everything the island has to offer. Perched at the edge of a crater lake on the Bois Cheri tea plantation, you are truly immersed within nature.

Experience the world’s second-largest canyon, Capertee Valley, in these stunning bubble domes which are perched on a hilltop offering you panoramic views of the surrounding area. The three transparent, air-locked dome tents, are named after the constellations of Leo, Cancer and Virgo. Included are wood-fired hot tubs, comfy day beds and iPads filled with the perfect music to accompany your sunset enjoyment.

Jungle Bubble, Thailand

This resort is one of the most talked-about on the internet right now. Located in the Anantara Golden Triangle Elephant Camp & Resort in Chiang Rai, Thailand, the bubble domes are perched on a wooden deck above the forest giving you an unforgettable night observing Thailand’s elephants in their natural habitat. It’s luxury, and it’s nature – everything we could ever want.
