Open-Air Hotels Where You Can Sleep Under the Stars

Is there anything more magical than looking up at a sky full of stars? No, which is why you need to see these open-air hotels around the world.

Is there anything more magical than looking up on a quiet night to see a sky full of stars? We think not, which is why you need to check out these five open-air hotels, all of which offer some of the best opportunities for stargazing in the entire world—right from your own bed.

L'And, Portugal

Ten of L’And’s 22 suites feature retractable roofs like the one above. Surrounded by a vineyard in Montemor-o-Novo in Portugal, you can expect next-level meals at a Michelin-starred restaurant, total relaxation at the Caudalie Spa and what might be the best wine tastings you’ve ever experienced. We have a feeling you’ll fall asleep easy here.

L'Albereta, Italy

Overlooking northern Italy’s Lake Iseo and the vineyards of Franciacorta (where you have to try some next-level sparkling wines), the five-star ch√Ęteau includes a state-of-the-art Espace Chenot spa and an Italian bistro. But look up from that Milanese veal chop, because the most spectacular offering is its Cabriolet Suite, which features a retractable roof above a luxurious bed.

Elqui Domos, Chile

Calling all serious stargazers: Elqui Domos, in Chile’s Coquimbo region, doesn’t mess around when it comes to astronomy. In addition to offering domed structures outfitted with a zip-away ceiling panel, the hotel also boasts an astronomic observatory that houses Celestron and Schmidt-Cassegrain telescopes (translation: really fancy telescopes).

Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort, Finland

These rooms aren’t technically outdoors (Finland gets pretty cold, you know), but Kakslauttanen’s glass igloos—which are available from mid-August to April—are spacious, heated and provide incredible views of the sky. Before settling in for a night of staring at the sky, take advantage of the resort’s many super-fun activities, like dogsledding and ice fishing.

Lion Sands Private Game Reserve, South Africa

OK, so you have to be pretty brave to stay in this tree house (which was built in 1933 as a photographer’s platform), but if you’re gutsy enough to try it, you’ll never forget it. Guests can have dinner at Lion Sands’ lodge before being escorted more than two miles to the tree house, armed with mosquito repellent, torches and a two-way radio and then left alone until morning. And since we know you’re wondering, yes, you’ll probably hear more than a few lions roaring throughout the night.
