Indulge in a unique and unforgettable experience by spending a night in a bubble, perfect for a romantic escapade! With an opportunity to stargaze at night and appreciate the lush greenery during the day, the Bubble Hotel offers an unparalleled experience.
Out of the ten bubbles, only one has a private pool, and it is highly recommended to book this option for its stunning views of the surrounding jungle and valley. Apart from the infinity pool, this bubble also features a swing and a hanging net, making it an ideal choice for a romantic retreat.
Wildlife is abundant at the Bubble Hotel. We saw monkeys swinging in the trees, lizards, geckos, butterflies, birds, etc. However, it’s important to note that mosquito repellent is a must-have, as they are quite numerous in the area.
Additionally, you can expect a comfortable night’s sleep in the air-conditioned Bubble, with the added convenience of WiFi access and electrical sockets both inside and outside the bubble to keep your electronic devices charged.
For an extra fee, you can elevate your bubble experience with beautiful floral arrangements and candlelight décor near the infinity pool. Additionally, there are plenty of fun activities to enjoy during your stay, such as flying kites, blowing big soap bubbles, releasing Chinese lanterns, and much more.
