You Can Camp in a Bubble in a Vineyard
There are plenty of cool places where dedicated booze lovers can rest their heads, whether you’re into luxe accommodations inside a distillery or dream of sleeping in a barrel an agave field. Now, wine lovers can slumber amongst the vines in a big clear bubble. Say hello to the Campera Hotel.
Located in Ensenada, Mexico, which is part of Valle de Guadalupe wine country, Campera Hotel is a cluster of 10 personal bubbles where you can retreat after a long day of sipping vino. While we would totally consider Campera’s accommodations glamping, they certainly keep comfort in mind. Each bubble is pressurized and climate controlled with heating and cooling systems, and they’re stocked with local soaps and creams. Wifi is on the way, according to the website.
There are two types of rooms available, the Bubble Suite and the Bubble Room. They’re basically the same, except the Bubble Suite’s bathroom is located inside, while the Bubble Room’s bathroom is outside. But both types of bathrooms are private to that particular bubble. The “roof” of each bubble is clear, so you can see the stars above and the vines around. Don’t worry, though, the plush, four-poster beds are surrounded by curtains, so you do have some privacy.
While the bubbles are small—they don’t contain much more than a bed or a bed and a bathroom, in the case of the suite—chances are you’ll be spending very little time inside anyway. Valle de Guadalupe is full of amazing restaurants and boasts more than 80 wineries. There’s even a golf course nearby where you can go hit some balls before retreating to your own spherical home. Once inside your bubble, you can enjoy a nightcap from the minibar—it’s stocked with white and red wines that are made from the grapes surrounding Campera—while gazing out at the star-studded sky.
Rates start at $145 a night for a Bubble Room and $180 a night for a Bubble Suite. Rooms are available for booking on Airbnb.
