Sleep Under the Stars At This Luxury Bubble Hotel in Jordan
By Rachel George
Step into a bubble of luxury amenities for a one of a kind hotel experience at the Bubble Luxotel Petra, located in Jordan.
The ancient city of Petra was named one of the seven wonders of the world in 2007 and is known for its pink sandstone cliffs. Scenes from the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade were actually filmed there in 1989.
The hotel has 20 large bubble suites on sandy mountain grounds with a pinkish-orange sky, paired with a warm, friendly welcome from the hotel staff. Each suite is equipped with a private outdoor hot tub, a secluded sun deck and transparent walls for your own personal view of the Petra Mountains.
Settled on a mountainside, each bubble also has a dining room and living room. The bedroom has an open ceiling. Sleep in bliss underneath the stars as the plastic exterior turns see through at night.
This is the perfect destination for a baecation or a weekend of relaxation and meditation.
To get to the hotel, you must take a 3 1/2 hour shuttle through the desert and the Dead Sea.
As you can imagine, it can get pretty hot in the desert, therefore the domes are completely covered with shade sheets to keep cool during the day. The hotel provides coats for when it gets chilly after the sun goes down.
There’s no room service and breakfast/ dinner is served buffet style. Only soft drinks are sold but alcohol is an option at the request of the hotel.
If this is looking like the ultimate destination for you, grab a hot cup of tea and a blanket and watch the sun set over the mountains in your luxury bubble while the sky changes colors for an unforgettable vacation to remember at the Bubble Luxotel Petra.
