Fodor's Expert Review Elqui Domos

Camino Público Pisco Elqui Horcón, at Km 3.5, Pisco Elqui, Coquimbo, 1760000, Chile Fodor's Choice

Though the walls of these modern pods are made from heavy, translucent material, this is far from camping; each dome has a skylight so you can gaze at the stars from the comfort of your bed on the loftlike second floor. On ground level is a modern-minimalist sitting room, complete with minibar, as well as a private bath. Additional activities here range from meditation, Reiki, and massage to midnight horseback-riding expeditions—and there are also telescopes on-site, for studying the starry skies. A hearty, healthy breakfast is included in the rate and served in the complex's restaurant, where you can enjoy a great view of the Elqui Valley as you eat. Activities and the restaurant are also available to nonguests.
