If you think sleek infinity-pools and thatched-roof bamboo villas are over-done in Bali and that the whole point of travelling is to get out of your bubble, the right way to do that might just be by sleeping in one.
These Instagrammable romantic bubble domes are installed in a jungle clearing, that overlooks the sea and come with a private gazebo for dining, a swing, and an outdoor hammock bed.
While there are bubble hotels popping up around the world, in photogenic locations all over the world like Iceland, Sydney, Baja, and Mauritius, to name a few, let me share the experience of living in a bubble hotel in one of my favourite holiday countries – Bali!
Comprised of six small-to-medium bubble tents perched on a beach south of Uluwatu, Bubble Hotel Bali is the current blogger host-spot and what all the Instagrammers are raving about.
For a mini-moon, this one can help you strike of not one, but two things off your bucket list - to spend the night under the open sky with Bae as you fall asleep to the music of crashing waves and to go camping in a giant see-through bubble!
With transparent walls and nothing but a bed, the tents boast of magnificent ocean and sky views.
While there will be other bubbles near yours, they are almost entirely concealed by different types of palm trees. You can ideally choose from three different types of bubbles: small, big, and 'big with curtains'. (yes, for those keen to maintain a level of privacy, some tents have curtains, while each bubble is surrounded by trees for added seclusion.)
The inflatable rooms are powered by electricity and, while the vast majority of visitors' belongings will be stored at reception by staff, there are security boxes for the bits and bobs you need to keep with you. The bubble itself is blown up by a constant stream of air from a generator that will constantly be making a humming sound.
When you enter and exit the bubble you have to be extremely careful both doors are zipped open together or the bubble would deflate on you! Inside there is a double bed, a small air conditioning unit and a side-table.
The bigger bubbles also come along with a day-bed, a swing, a camp-fire shade and an breath-taking infinity swimming pool.
Of course, you must be curious about the toilet.
Honestly, when it comes to amenities, things here really go back to nature. Each bubble tent has its own outdoor shower and toilet, protected by little privacy screens. (Just don’t leave the door open when you pop out to use the bathroom – unless you want to see how your accommodation looks when it’s deflated.)
