CLIMB INTO A TREEHOUSE FOR A KENYA SLEEP-OUT

LION SANDS PRIVATE GAME RESERVE

John Hemingway said, “If I have ever seen magic, it has been in Africa.” If you’re seeking unobstructed views of one of the world’s most spellbinding landscapes, consider a sleep-out adventure. There are three luxury treehouses available as a special add-on for guests of the lodges at Lion Sands Game Reserve and Lion Sands Kruger Park, both located in South Africa. Your sky-high experience starts with a picnic at sunset while you wait for the great beasts to pass through. As dusk fades into a sky filled with “tinyeleti,” meaning “many stars,” you’ll crawl into your feather bed and awake to the coolness of the early morning.

GO WESTERN-STYLE GLAMPING ON THE DOLORES RIVER

DUNTON HOT SPRINGS, COLORADO

Hiding in a historic mining ghost town outside Telluride, Dunton Hot Springs is a fascinating resort combining an authentic Wild West ambiance with unmatched rustic elegance. Experience the romance of days gone by with trail rides into the San Juans, chef-prepared meadow picnics, or dips in the steaming 19th-century bathhouse filled by natural hot springs. In addition to their refurbished mining cabins, there are eight tents just a few minutes down the road, each sitting on 640 square foot platforms with all of the amenities of a luxury hotel, including 6’ soaker tubs and a nearby riverside sauna (pictured above). Available only in the summer, glamping at the Dunton River Camp is one of the most unique experiences one could have under the vast mountain sky.

ASK FOR A BED ON YOUR ROOFTOP TERRACE IN CABO

LAS VENTANAS AL PARAISO, A ROSEWOOD RESORT, MEXICO

Considered one of the best locations in the world to observe astronomy, the home of Las Ventanas features especially dark skies for stargazing opportunities. (That said, it is fitting that each suite has its own telescope). In the signature “Sleeping under the stars” experience, your private oceanfront or rooftop terrace is transformed into a twinkling oasis with a palatial bed, flowers and champagne. If that sounds extravagant, this may put it in perspective: the resort also offers the world’s first “firework menu,” allowing guests to illuminate the sky with a custom fireworks display, complete with personalized hand-selected music.
