The valley on which the hotel is located is renowned for its sharp, clear skies and pleasant weather and as the hotel is located on the valley, the hotel can actually offer a stunning view of the sky when the night comes.
The hotel itself comprises several single wooden-structured cabins which provide translucent fabric domes, enabling an unforgettable experience which encourages a close connection with nature and unique night-sky viewing while lying beneath the stars.
The hotel is one of the seven astronomic hotels worldwide and it is the only one to be located in the South Hemisphere.
Situated in VicuÃ±a, Chile, Elqui Domos is an astonishing hotel whose rooms are 7 geodesic domes which are furnished in a two storey plan on the inside.
