10. LOISABA, KENYA

Explore Kenya’s wilderness by camel, river raft or mountain bike, and then fall asleep beneath a canopy of stars at Loisaba. Popular with honeymooners, Loisaba’s  two sets of ‘star beds‘ are completely exposed to the elements, standing on an elevated, open-air platform in the middle of the 60,000-acre private wilderness reserve.

9. LADERA, ST LUCIA

Nothing prepares you for the view of the forested Piton mountains rand blue Caribbean from your room at St Lucia’s Ladera. The hotel’s 32 suites are constructed of tropical hardwoods, stone and tile, and all have a private (heated or non-heated) plunge pool and an open wall, allowing fresh breezes from the forested hilltops and spectacular panoramic views.

8. JADE MOUNTAIN, ST LUCIA

And we stay in beautiful St Lucia for the next hotel on our list. Exceptional infinity pool suites make Jade Mountain one of the Caribbean’s most mesmerizing resort experiences, especially for honeymooners. With the fourth wall entirely absent, Jade Mountain’s 29 suites (called “sanctuaries”) are stage-like settings from which to embrace the full glory of  the Pitons  and the Caribbean Sea.

7. LAS VENTANAS AL PARAISO, A ROSEWOOD RESORT, MEXICO

Los Cabos’ most famous and luxurious hotel is known for unparalleled service, exquisite accommodations and unwavering attention to detail. Each of the penthouse suites has a wide terrace where a king-size bed has been set up. Guests can begin their evening admiring the night sky from their outdoor bed and end it in the other bed inside, or just stay on the terrace to watch the sunrise.

A gorgeous bay on the Bodrum Peninsula is home to hillside Amanruya, a tranquil resort that is run by Amanresorts, widely acclaimed as the world’s most exclusive ultra-luxury hotel chain.

5. L’ALBERETA, ITALY

High on a vine-lined hilltop in Lombardy, L’Albereta Relais & Chateaux is an ivy-masked villa with more classic Italian glamour than a Fellini film. Hit a switch in the Cabriolet Suite and the roof opens up to let the Brescian sun warm your king-size bed below. The suite also has a balcony facing Lake Iseo.

4. TSWALU KALAHARI, SOUTH AFRICA

Imagine sleeping in a luxury king-size bed in the middle of a game reserve, surrounded by the calls of nocturnal animals, with nothing between you and the brilliant stars of the Kalahari night sky. This dream can become reality at Tswalu Kalahari’s sleepout deck, called ‘The Malori’, a luxurious terrace built high above the ground to ensure protection from the occasional wild animal.

3. NKWICHI, MOZAMBIQUE

Nkwichi Lodge offers a rare chance to savour an unspoilt corner of real Africa in one of the continent’s most pristine and untouched countries, Mozambique. Set on a deserted, virgin beach surrounded by breathtaking baobabs, or on a private rock island close to the shore with Fish Eagles soaring overhead, its ‘Lake of Stars’ bed  is the perfect way to see the wonders of an African night-sky.

2. AMANGIRI, UTAH, USA

Another Amanresort made it into our top 10 list. Tucked into a protected desert valley with sweeping views towards Utah’s Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument, this resort boasts no less than six open-roof suites. Each is shielded from the wind by three walls and provides an unmatched view on the vast desert sky. These suites also have a pool, for those who enjoy midnight swims.

1. IVORY LODGE LION SANDS, SOUTH AFRICA

For the ultimate African Bushveld experience in lavish comfort, we recommend you to stay at one of the ultraluxurious treehouses within the private Lion Sands wildlife reserve.  Guests are led to the treehouse at sunset, where drinks and a sumptuous picnic dinner await them, and are then free to enjoy a night under the stars to truly experience nocturnal Africa in its rawest form.
