Perched on a mountainside and overlooking the Sacred Valley of the Incas in Peru, South America, the transparent luxury capsule bedrooms of The Skylodge Adventure Suites offer a stunning evening view of the Milky Way and a dramatic 300-degree morning spectacle. The Skylodge Adventure Suites consist of 3 sleeping pods that are hung from the top of a hill in the Peruvian region of Cusco and can accommodate 12 daring travelers per night.
To reach this mountain paradise, located amid the Peruvian Andes, visitors must climb 1,312 feet (400 meters) of Via Ferrata. The arduous climb can take roughly an hour and a half, however, you are permitted to take your time and have breaks for snacks or photographs. If you claim yourself to be a restless adrenaline junkie, there is an alternative route through an adventurous trail of zip lines.
Except for adrenaline-fueled overnight stays inside the 24 feet long and 8 feet wide bedrooms designed to handle extreme weather conditions, this magnificent hanging lodge offers private bathrooms and a bubble-shaped dining pod where you will be served delicious Peruvian food for breakfast and dinner, prepared by your guides. You will also be offered a bottle of rich wine to help you distract yourself for a couple of minutes while stargazing.
The Skylodge Adventure Suites in Cusco, Peru, will exceed all your expectations as the absolute bucket list adventure. It can also serve as a perfect stop-over before venturing below and onto Machu Picchu, a true icon of Inca civilization. The most important structures of the establishment which was built in the 15th century are the Intihuatana, the Temple of the Sun, and the Temple of the Three Windows.
If you are ready for a real adventure, make sure that you plan well in advance as the lodge tends to be fully booked for a long period of time. We suggest visitors reserve their $435-per-person overnight stay few months prior to their planned vacation. Except for lodging, the cost covers transportation, climbing on day one, snacks, a three-course dinner, breakfast the following day, and an hour of rappelling/ziplining.
