If you’ve been to Jordan before, chances are you’ve visited Petra and had several instagrammable moments in front of the infamous Treasury. But for those in the know, seeking a luxurious and one of kind experience, spending a few nights under the stars at Petra’s newest hot spot, the Bubble Luxotel, will surely top your list during your next visit!
Setting The Scene
Imagine waking up every morning to stunning views and going to sleep each night under the stars. Perched high on a mountainside, with panoramic views of the Petra Mountains, the Bubble Luxotel is conveniently located 7 miles from the Petra ruins. The semi-white bubbles, perfectly accented by the warm hues from the sun, paints a picture of what I envision a space settlement to look like on planet Mars.
The Suite Life
The Suite-Life at the Bubble Luxotel features 20 partially see-through bubbles with uninterrupted views of the mountains, an expansive deck with two loungers and a Jacuzzi.
The bedroom is sectioned off with the illusion of an open ceiling, perfect for privacy and star gazing at night.
There’s also a living area (with amazing views), a work space and a private bathroom.
Food & Beverage
Options at the Bubble Luxotel are quite limited and mainly consist of traditional Arabic cuisine, soft drinks and local juices. Do not expect a lengthy menu with tons of international dishes. Choose between the main dinning hall or have all meals served directly to your Bubble.
Activities & Amenities
The Petra Ruins are conveniently located within a 10-minutes drive from the Bubble.
Spacious and unique Bubbles – Free round-trip transfer to/from Petra Ruins – Star gazing at night – Serene and private location
Things To Consider
No nearby restaurants/shops (as expected given the remote location) – Staff, although friendly, are a bit inattentive – Lack of diversity in dining options (for the picky eaters)
Tips Before You Go
- If you’re traveling during the winter months, be sure to walk with extra layers as the Bubbles become quite cold during the night. There are sufficient blankets available, however, this may not be enough for those who do not handle the cold weather well.
- Alcohol is not available at the property (during my stay).
- WiFi can be weak at times.
- Picky eaters and those with an aggressive appetite (like myself), be sure to walk with some additional snacks.
