9 Places to Sleep in Luxury under the Stars

At one, you can press a button and the roof over your four-poster bed will slide back to reveal the night sky.

1. SkyLodge Adventure Suites, Cuzco, Peru. Climb 400 feet or hike an intrepid trail to transparent capsules that hang from a cliff at the top of a 1,200-foot mountain, offering a vast view into Sacred Valley.

2. Linkwasha Camp, Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe. Sleep in a sumptuous bed on a wooden platform in the African bush. It’s alongside a pan where elephants drink through the night.

3. Bangkok Tree House, Bangkok, Thailand. With a mangrove forest for walls, the “View with a Room” at Bangkok Tree House offers a tranquil night under the stars in one of Asia’s busiest cities.

4. Finn Lough Resort, Northern Ireland. Tucked into a forest beside a lake, the bubble domes at Finn Lough allow for cozy views of the night skies even when it’s chilly outside.

5. Skyscape, Omahau Hill Station, Twizel, New Zealand. The glass roof and walls at Skyscape reveal your closest—and farthest—neighbors: tufts of native scrub bushes on the grassy plains and distant hills of Mackenzie Country.

6. Tinyeleti Treehouse, Lion Sands Game Reserve, South Africa. This romantic open-air “treehouse,” alongside the Sabie River, is like a luxurious hotel room—minus walls and a roof.

7. Soneva Jani, Maldives. Private villas, built on stilts over an impossibly turquoise lagoon, offer daytime views of the reefs below; at night, the villas’ roofs slide open to reveal a universe of stars.
