Elqui Domos
Elqui Valley, Chile

Who needs a TV when a giant retractable skylight installed at the foot of the bed perfectly showcases the Elqui Valley's famously clear night skies? In addition to gazing at the jaw-dropping starscape from the room, guests at these ultra-contemporary (modern rockers, blonde-wood conversation pits) but petite (small living space, a loft sleeping area and deck) tri-level cabins can venture out for poolside astronomy-primer classes or nighttime horseback-riding tours. There's even an observatory on-site, but nothing beats drinking a local craft beer on your terrace and peering through a telescope at the night sky.
