Do you love nature and its intrinsic beauty but don’t consider yourself the camping type? Perhaps you really don’t want to sacrifice your love of luxury. There are some amazing options for your travels. Consider a stay at any one of these ten incredible outdoor hotel rooms on your next trip.
In 2017, Null Stern hosted another successful season with their upgraded double room on the Göbsi summit at Gonten in Switzerland. The concept was developed by Swiss conceptual artists Frank and Patrik Riklin and Daniel Charbonnier. They’ll launch another in 2018 with a location that is yet to be announced, however, you can join the waiting list.
Loisaba Wilderness Lodge
Considered to be an excellent destination for a newly-married, nature-loving couple for their honeymoon, Kenya’s Loisaba Wilderness Lodge places you right out in the elements on an elevated platform in the open air of their 60,000-acre private wilderness reserve. The views from their mobile Starbeds are stunning, as is the entire experience.
Las Ventanas Al Paraiso
Popular among celebrities (though don’t let that be a deterrent), Las Ventanas Al Paraiso is known for their exquisite service and accommodations due in part to the fact that their outdoor room is low commitment. You’ll enjoy the bed on the terrace, but can move indoors to your other bed if you desire.
L’Albereta Relais & Chateaux
While technically not completely outside, the Cabriolet Suite at L’Albereta Relais & Chateaux allows its guests to press a button and have their roof open completely above their bed so you can enjoy the stars. You’ll find yourself immersed in what feels like a Fellini set without the cameras.
Adrère Amellal Desert Ecolodge
A true eco-lodge, the only power at the lodge is the generator in the kitchen. This immersive experience feels both primitive yet luxurious. Your bed may be on the roof or out in the desert and dinner is at crystal-laden tables in a bowl between dunes.
Situated near Utah’s Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, Amangiri is in a protected valley of the desert and was built to weather in the same manner as the land on which it was erected. Their six rooftop suites feature an outdoor area with three walls and sweeping desert views as well as a private pool perfect for those midnight dips under the stars.
Located on the pristine shores of Lake Malawi in one of Africa’s unspoiled and untouched areas in Mozambique, Nkwichi Lodge offers a Lake of Stars bed which will allow you to take in the wondrous beauty of the African night sky. Nkwichi is more than just a lodge, it is an immersive experience.
Considered to be five-star luxury in perfect harmony with nature, Ladera Resort also ranks highly as an impressive cliffside hotel. What may be most impressive is that each of the resort’s 32 suites has its own, private plunge pool. Always a great destination in the Caribbean, Ladera Resort is boon to the beauty of St. Lucia.
Outdoor hotel rooms do not have to be overly rustic. They are a great option for something different that will allow you to enjoy some luxury while communing with nature. So, which of those listed appeals to you most? If you’re adventurous enough to stay in an outdoor hotel room, perhaps you’ll be interested in these six immersive experiences for adventurous travelers.
