PERU OPENS UNIQUE GEODESIC DOME RESORT IN THE ANDES
A collection of magnificent geodesic domes have been positioned high in the Andes Mountains of Peru.
Travellers wanting to enjoy one of the world’s most unique accommodation experiences can do so at StarDome Peru.
The luxury boutique hotel and retreat centre is positioned in the Sacred Valley between Cusco and Machu Picchu and began accepting reservations for its six geodesic domes on February 1.
Guests can reserve multi-day retreat packages or individual night stays with introductory prices beginning at $399 per person.
The resort offers visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in the surrounding culture and learn activities – such as healing rituals – from the Quechua community and take trips to Incan ruins.
Each of the geodesic domes offer breathtaking views of the surrounding landscape from all rooms while the StarDeck goes one step further with floor to ceiling glass walls, a 360-degree view and a telescope for guests to explore the sky.
The geodesic domes’ structure includes a bottom floor with access to five guest suites and a top floor offering the StarDeck.
Suites include the Garden Mountain, Garden Valley, one of two Sacred Valley Suites and the owner’s personal hideout, the Royal Mountain Suite.
