New Bryce Canyon Stargazing Resort Lodges Guests in Futuristic Glass Domes

There’s already something eerie about the landscape in and around southern Utah’s Bryce Canyon National Park, thanks to all the Martian red rocks and stone spires known as hoodoos.

So a peppering of 62 giant disco balls may not look as out of place as you’d think. 

Actually, the glass domes are part of a new property from Clear Sky Resorts that’ll open to overnight guests on Thursday, August 1.

Each glass bubble is a lodging unit built to maximize views, both of the landscape and, come nightfall, a dazzling display of stars. 

“You will feel like you’re sleeping in an aquarium of stars,” enthuses Clear Sky Resorts cofounder Hal Feinberg in a press release. 

That’s not an exaggeration, either. Bryce Canyon has been certified an International Dark Sky Park by DarkSky International, which “recognizes the exceptional quality of the park’s night skies” and “astronomy-based interpretive programming.”

The new Clear Sky Resorts property isn’t located within the boundaries of the national park, but the domes do sit within their own 80-acre canyon just to the east, where the celestial vistas remain similarly spectacular. 

Each climate-controlled Sky Dome, available in configurations sleeping up to two or four guests, is equipped with blackout privacy curtains (so that lodgers remain the viewers, not the viewed) as well as kitchenettes and private bathrooms. Some units have decks and fire pits. 

An onsite glass-dome bar and restaurant will also show off the scenery through a wall of windows stretching 28 feet in height. A slate of available activities will include nightly stargazing tours. 

Set to open August 1, Clear Sky Resort – Bryce Canyon offers nightly rates usually starting at $525—though you can currently get 25% off a 2-night stay as part of a promotion to coincide with the opening.
