This glass dome hotel lets you experience Machu Picchu like never before.

Is visiting Peru and the iconic Machu Picchu on your wish list? Well, adding a stroke of chic to that plan is the StarDome Peru! Set to open in February this year, the boutique hotel will feature a one-of-a-kind geodesic dome offering an unparallel experience to visitors!
Cofounded and slated to be operated by the local Indigenous Quechuan community in association with Berman, a retired lawyer from Toronto, the hotel is special as it is located in the Sacred Valley between Cusco and Machu Picchu.

It will offer visitors ample opportunities for cultural immersion and learning activities such as healing rituals and excursions to local Incan ruins while presenting incredible views of the surrounding environment from all rooms.

Commenting on it, a spokesperson for StarDome in a statement said, “It was through the local community and Carlos’s shamanic teachings that [Berman] was able to find healing and the inspiration to offer people the same opportunity.”

He further added, “With Gibaja’s knowledge of construction and architecture, as well as the local community all coming together, Berman’s personal home was transformed into StarDome, with a focus on celebrating Indigenous roots, honoring cultural traditions and beliefs, and connecting travelers with the energies that radiate through the Andes mountains.”

As stated by, there will be six different suite options(including the Garden Mountain Suite, the Garden Valley Suite, two Sacred Valley suites, the Royal Mountain Suite, and the standalone Royal Apu Suite) with each suite featuring a private stone shower, heated marble floors, traditional Incan tiling, handmade textiles and more.

Guests will further be welcomed for breakfast at the hotel’s restaurant, Apu, with options for personal dining also being available to them. The luxe yet remote hotel is open for reservations starting Feb. 1, and tariffs start at $399 per night.
