7 Must-See Bubble Dome Accommodations Around the World

There's been a lot of talk of bubbles this year, but did you know that you can vacation inside of a literal bubble? These see-through domes are taking glamping to new levels of style and popping up in breathtaking destinations. You get all the luxuries of glamping tents and cabins but with the addition of unobstructed views of scenic countrysides and starlit night skies. From the isolation of Iceland to the mystical sandstone landscapes of Jordan’s Wadi Rum, here’s seven of the best bubble dome accommodations to check out.

Bubble Puerto Rico

Ponce, Puerto Rico

Nestled amid a tropical rainforest outside the coastal city of Ponce, Bubble Puerto Rico bills itself as an ecological, magical stay. A stay here is about getting in touch with nature while enjoying luxury amenities. The entirely transparent bubble features a four poster bed, perfect for watching the sunrise, spotting birds, and stargazing. It has air conditioning, charging ports and curtains, for when a little extra privacy is desired, but everything else is outdoors. Guests cook in the open air and bathe and relieve themselves al-fresco, too. A private pool, suspended hammock bed and access to a secluded river make it easy to while the day away.

Capertree, Australia

Exclusiveness and secludedness beckon above the dramatic Capertree Valley, which just happens to be the world’s second-largest canyon. There’s only three dome tents at Bubbletent, each carefully positioned so as not to intrude on the other. All come with a wood-fired hot tub, telescope and either a floating bed, hammock or love swing. Freshen up in the outdoor shower safe in the knowledge that only the valley’s 237 bird species might be watching. When night falls, it's time to stargaze from inside the bubble and roast marshmallows next to the fire pit. A complimentary iPad comes installed with themed playlists and a constellation app.

Buubble: The 5 Million Star Hotel


Your dreams of sleeping in the wild seemingly thousands of miles from anywhere come to life in a remote Icelandic woodland. Buubble has two locations within a 90-minute drive from Reykjavik. The UFO-like domes have large beds — kids under six can share with parents — and heating to help combat the Arctic chill. Iceland’s extreme seasons present enchanting feasts for the eyes all year round. Watch birds and butterflies flutter in the trees and lie beneath the midnight sun in summertime. In winter, the aureola borealis often makes an appearance and paints a magical dancing image on the night sky.

Dream Dome at Ridgeback Lodge

Kingston, Canada

Deep within the wilderness of New Brunswick’s Kingston Peninsula is an adult-only resort where disconnection and rustic vibes are guaranteed. The Dream Dome at Ridgeback Lodge is half dome, half tent, with log cabin-style decor. There’s no television, no telephones and no internet — guests have to post their social media updates when they get home. Views face out to the front of the bubble, rather than toward the sky, and replicate a live cinema for admiring the colors of a scenic forest. Inside, there’s space to live, cook, cozy up and sleep. Outside, you'll find a barbecue and an optional Japanese wood-fired hot tub.

Premium domes at Finn Lough go the extra mile with an ensuite dome bathroom and free standing stone bath. By day, visitors can follow a forest trail to a hot tub, float room and saunas, go lake fishing, and enjoy waterside sundowners.

Surrounded by a sprawling desert and fascinating sandstone rock formations, the Full of Stars Hotel could easily be mistaken for Luke Skywalker’s homeland of Tatooine. Eleven inflatable pods sit on individual raised wooden decks and face the craggy red peaks of Wadi Rum. The pods are well-equipped with a king size bed, intimacy curtains, air conditioning, private bathroom, and shower cubicle. Lodgers can wake up with the sunrise over monolithic peaks and drift into a slumber to the twinkling of a million bright stars. There’s also the bonus of Jordanian breakfasts and meals included in the nightly rates.
