The Best (Really) Little Hotels in the World
These stunningly sexy, diminutive vacation retreats pack maximum comfort—blissful beds, chic design, and unbelievable views—into minimal space. Yes, big luxury can come in small packages.
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.
