Hold on to your hats…or your lunch if you’re scared of heights! Take a look at this hotel, the adventurous, Skylodge Adventure Suites. I didn’t know whether to title this blog post, unique hotels or downright hair-raising!
Well, let’s take a deeper look and see what they offer, shall we? Here’s what the site has to say about the suites.
“Have you ever wanted to sleep in a condor’s nest? Here is the next best thing! A transparent luxury capsule that hangs from the top of a mountain in the Sacred Valley of Peru.
Located in the Sacred Valley of Cuzco, Peru, the exclusive Skylodge Adventure Suites offers you the chance to sleep within a completely transparent hanging bedroom, that allows you to appreciate the impressive view of this magic and mystic valley.
To sleep at Skylodge, people must climb 400 mt. of Via Ferrata or hike an intrepid trail through ziplines. One night at this place will make your dreams come true. Packages includes breakfast & gourmet dinner with wine, transportation from Cuzco and our professional bilingual guides.
Continuing with Natura Vive´s philosophy of sharing a mountain experience with people of all ages and capacities, in June of 2013 we opened the unique and first ever hanging lodge in the world, The Skylodge Adventure Suites.
The Natura Vive Skylodge is composed of three exclusive capsule Suites with a total capacity of 8 people. Our vertically hanging transparent capsule suites are situated at the top of our 1200 ft mountain with a 300 degree view of the majestic Sacred Valley. Hand crafted out of aerospace aluminum and weather resistant polycarbonate, each suite comes complete with four beds, a dinning area and a private bathroom .
Measuring 24 ft. in length and 8 ft. in height and width, the capsule suites are composed of six windows and four ventilation ducts that ensure a comfortable atmosphere. Safety is insured by having the exit portal located in the upper part of the craft.
The design and features of each suite provides our clients with first class service and complete comfort. Our alternative lighting system consists of four interior lamps and a reading light all powered by solar panels that store energy in batteries. Each suite has a private bathroom separated from the bedroom by an insulated wall. Inside is a dry ecological toilet and sink, where you can still enjoy the gorgeous views through the 1.8 meter diameter dome. The dome also has curtains for privacy from the curious gaze of passing condors (your sky neighbors). Fine quality mattresses, cotton sheets, down pillows, and quilts ensure a warm and pleasant night 400 meters from the ground.”
So, are you scared out of your mind, or ready to pack your bags?
See you there!
