BUBBLE CHIC: Sleeping under the stars

BUBBLE CHIC: Sleeping under the stars

Sleeping out in the open, under the stars, with the heaven above you as ceiling without having to deal with the downside thereof like insects, and other threats, sounds too good to be true. But, no more.

Ever dreamt of sleeping under the stars in a transparent accommodation? This is now possible in Mauritius! Transparent bubbles in the middle of greenery provides the impression of having virtually no barrier between the heavens and you while still maintaining a certain distance from the unpleasant surprises in nature like mosquitoes. One unit of the accommodation consists of three bubbles organized into 2 rooms and a bathroom including an exterior shower, all of which is air-conditioned. The air is renewed throughout.

The first Bubble Lodge has been launched at Bois Cheri and is included in one of the phases of the “La Route du Thé”. It will also be installed on Ile aux Cerfs in the near future. Around 6 to 8 bubbles will be set up on the island.

The project was conceived back in 2006 by French designer Pierre Stephane Dumas. His firm Bubble Tree-Paris has went around the world in luxurious hotels and grand events like the launching of l’Oreal products. The firm was drawn to Mauritius because of its potential for eco-tourism.
