This luxe observatory takes stargazing to another level
Domes are metal frames covered by a PVC tent, with the bed at the dome’s highest point, and a retractable roof right above. A living room and bathroom are on the ‘lower’ level and a deck is outside. Observatories have three levels, with big windows above the bed, and a deck on the top floor.
The main dome contains the reception area, restaurant, and a living room for guests to relax in. Outside, there’s a pool and barbecue site.
If you want to do some serious stargazing, you can book a tour of the astronomic observatory on property. You'll get a complete guide of the skies and a chance to use one of the Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes. Other activities include night-time horse-back rides through the desert landscape.
Rates at Elqui Domos range from $125 to $150 depending on the season. Now all we need to work on is how to get there...
