Le Domaine Des Bulles
At Le Domaine Des Bulles, an eco-lodge in Martinique, guests can choose from three clear domes: Air, Mineral and Water. Surrounded by lush, tropical greenery, this resort offers a tranquil respite from cookie-cutter all-inclusives of the Caribbean. Relax with a massage at the spa and a soak in a private Jacuzzi or splash pool before turning in for a magical night under the stars. Enjoy breakfast on the terrace after a relaxing night’s sleep. From $159 per night.
Wilderness Hotel Nellim
Situated in Northern Lapland in Finland, the Wilderness Hotel Nellim has traditional hotel rooms, as well as coveted Aurora Bubbles. It's easy to spend an entire evening gazing at the stars or watching the aurora borealis dance across the night sky from the warmth and comfort of your own glass-enclosed room. By day, go cross-country skiing, visit a reindeer farm or go on a husky safari in this delightfully serene winter wonderland. From $364 per night.
Whether you go to Iceland for the midnight sun or the northern lights, a stay in one of eight clear bubble lodges at Buubble is the way to go. Just a 70-minute drive from Reykjavik, the largest bubble sleeps up to two adults and one small child. Switch off the lights, lie back and enjoy a colorful late-night sunset in summer or a vivid green aurora borealis in winter. At this time, a stay at Buubble can only be booked as part of a Golden Circle Tour. From $568 per night.
Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp
In the Wadi Rum Desert of Jordan, there’s no better way to enjoy the desert nights than as part of a stay at the Full of Stars Hotel, an extension of the Wadi Rum Night Luxury Camp. Each bubble tent includes a king-size bed, a private bathroom and views of the scenic desert valley and dramatic sandstone mountains at Wadi Rum. Add on a camel ride, sand boarding or an exhilarating 4x4 ride across the desert. From $282 per night.
If you’ve ever wanted to live in a bubble, Attrap’ Reves makes it easy with four locations across France where you can book a stay in one of five different bubble-like pods. These eco-friendly plastic bubbles are made from recyclable materials that set up and take down quickly, allowing for minimal impact on the environment. All bubbles include a telescope and a star chart, perfect for after-hours celestial viewing from the privacy of your climate-controlled pod. Add-ons include wine service and a soak in a private Jacuzzi tub. From $128 per night.
Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort
At the Instagram-worthy Kakslauttanen Arctic Resort in Finland, a stay in one of 65 glass igloos is on many bucket lists. Sleep under a sky full of twinkling stars or a magical midnight sunset (and sunrise). Glass-enclosed igloos sleep either two or four people, with larger igloos including an en-suite bathroom. Depending on the season, guests can enjoy a reindeer safari, hiking, ice fishing or chasing the northern lights. Just a five-minute drive from Santa’s home, a visit is a must-do. From $410 per night.
Hotel Aire de Bardenas
In central Spain, overnight in one of nine bubble rooms at the Hotel Aire de Bardenas (the hotel also has cube rooms). By day, enjoy a guided hike at nearby Bardenas National Park, the largest desert in Europe, or book an olive oil tour to learn how extra virgin organic olive oil is made. By night, put your phone away, relax and enjoy the serenity of a sky full of stars. From $311 per night.
Just off the coast of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean lies the tiny island of Mauritius, which is home to Bubble Lodge.

From $363 per night.
Levin Iglut-Golden Crown

Experience the magical Arctic polar region and stunning aurora borealis from a toasty warm (and surprisingly spacious) glass igloo. Each igloo includes a private bathroom, wi-fi and a kitchenette, even a motorized bed that can be adjusted for prime northern lights viewing. From $622 per night.
Book a stay in one of the Forest Domes at Finn Lough in Northern Ireland to escape civilization and feel truly immersed in nature, if only for a weekend. A stay includes a four-poster bed, an en-suite bathroom and a hearty morning breakfast. There’s also a telescope in each room for enjoying the night sky from the comfort of your own dome.
