A look at StarDome Peru

What makes this property particularly unique is its geodesic dome structure that looks like a giant bubble nestled in the mountains. But rather than go the glamping route, as other dome hotels have done, StarDome Peru has made its accommodations all about luxury – think: heated marble floors, private stone showers, plush beds stacked with handmade blankets and traditional Inca-inspired tiling from renowned ceramic artist Seminario.
Guests can choose from six unique suites at StarDome Peru. The Garden Mountain View and Garden Valley View suites offer the best value starting at $399 per night. But for just $100 more, you can soak up a never-before-seen view of the Sacred Valley by staying in one of two aptly named Sacred Valley View Suites.
The crown jewel of StarDome Peru, however, is the Royal Mountain View Suite. Designed for hotel owner Bob Berman (founder of Toronto’s high-tech healing center, Soul 7), the massive suite is adorned with a double Jacuzzi and has its own private entrance to the StarDeck (more on this later). subject in a moment). Its panoramic floor-to-ceiling windows also offer breathtaking views of mighty Mount Veronica, the highest peak in the Urubamba mountain range. A one-night stay in this exclusive suite starts at $799, but chances are you’ll want to stay much longer.
