A fun, quirky, individual hotel in the middle of Chile’s untamed wilderness, a stay in Elqui Domos is guaranteed to be a unique one. One of only seven astronomic hotels worldwide, it has been specially designed for stargazing in a region completely devoid of light and sound pollution. Elqui Domos is located in the Elqui valley, stretched between the Andes Mountains, where you can completely retreat from the world and revel in a feeling of isolation and intimacy.
The seven geodesic domes comprise of two stories, the first floor decked out with a living room and bathroom, the second floor a bedroom. All are equipped with a telescope. The uniformed design and style of the domes is simple and clean, your attention directed to the beauty outside the tent. With the bed raised as high as possible, resting underneath a detachable roof, stargazing the constellations from your bed in this cosy sanctuary is an absolute delight. A spellbinding experience you will not be able to replicate anywhere else.
Elqui Domo’s minimalist restaurant has a reputation for delivering delicious food and an impressive selection of Chilean wines. The hotel also houses a main dome with a lounge area and inviting hammocks dotted around the garden.
