The 5 million star hotel Bubbles in Iceland
Let your childhood dream of sleeping in the nature become reality, Enjoy the aurora & stars in the winter and the midnight sun & nature in the summer. Founded in November 2015 by Robert Robertsson, Buubble is a unique lodging option about an hour outside of Reykjavík, Iceland. This is the ultimate way to sleep under the million stars.
The project is about creating ideal conditions for relaxing and dazzling for the big city of the world. The idea is based on utilizing a log cabin to create shelter for the balls so that you can take advantage of the whole year. Then it would be for nature lovers during the summer and northern lights / star fans during the winter.
Surrounded by the forest on all sides, winter visitors who are lucky enough to catch the Northern Lights can watch the entrancing show from the comfort of their beds, while summer guests are immersed in wildlife and the midnight sun. A quiet ventilation system keeps the bubbles inflated, circulating air and keeping the interiors from becoming too humid, while a heating system keeps them cozy throughout the winter.
“The bubble structure is kept inflated by a slight over-pressure from a noiseless ventilation system. It permanently renews the air inside 2-7 times the volume per hour and this way it prevents humidity. The system has heating elements with thermostat so the bubble stays warm all winter.
In the winter we have the stars and the northern lights but in the summer we have the amazing green forest with all its wonderful birds, butterflies and great scenery. We will provide you with a sleep mask if you think it will be too bright in the middle of the summer.” – Buubble
Some childhood dreams stay with us for our whole lives. Sleeping under the stars or watching the aurora borealis dance is one of those lifelong dreams. To fulfil these dreams the Bubble concept was born.
Forget the city, forget work and enjoy watching the aurora borealis dance for you. We can of course not guarantee you will see the lights but if they show up you will have a magical night.
In the winter we have the aurora or the stars but in the summer you are going to be in the proximity to nature, wonderful birds, butterflies and great midnight-sun scenery.
One day in a bubble. Double bed. Shared service house with two water toilets & showers, and a self-service kitchen. This is not like a normal hotel. No food included.
