With Earth Hour once again just around the corner, Hilton has released a hand-picked list of its luxury hotels, best suited for stargazing.
On 30 March 2019, the world will celebrate Earth Hour and Hilton is sending out an invitation to join the movement. Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, and Canopy by Hilton — part of Hilton’s luxury and lifestyle brands — all represent several of the best spots across the globe to stargaze in luxury. Check out the star-studded list:
Grand Wailea, A Waldorf Astoria Resort
Remote, natural and feeling like a million miles away from the hustle and bustle, Hawaii offers some of the best opportunities for stargazing anywhere in the world.
The stars are always out at Grand Wailea, a luxury oceanfront resort set on 40 acres of tropical gardens bordering Wailea Beach and surrounded by the wild nature of Hawaiian island living. The hotel features nine pools, surrounding beach, balconies, and a lazy river, ideal for lounging under the stars.
Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah
Astronomy has always been an important part of the UAE’s culture and heritage, dating back to the time when Arab explorers used the stars to navigate.
Positioned on the serene shores of the Arabian Gulf and boasting dramatic views of the Hajar Mountains, Waldorf Astoria Ras Al Khaimah promises crystal clear skies where guests can gaze up at the stars and planets.
Conrad Maldives Rangali Island
Did you know that in the Maldives you can see stars from both hemispheres?
Applauded by Time Magazine as one of the ‘World’s Top 100 Greatest Destinations in 2018’ and home to the world’s first undersea residence — THE MURAKA — consider getting back to nature at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island.
The property falls under Hilton’s brand, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, and has created a space with a distinctive design that flows harmoniously with the natural environment for an uninterrupted view of the night sky.
Conrad Bora Bora Nui
In French Polynesia, Bora Bora is the best location to view the stars in the southern hemisphere thanks to almost zero light pollution.
A blissful and luxurious resort, Conrad Bora Bora Nui is the ideal place to spend a few hours stargazing in peace and quiet. Located on a private island Motu To’opua, guests can experience a long private stretch of soft white sand beaches nestled between the soaring backdrop of Mount Otemanu and the mesmerising lagoon.
Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre
The Northern Lights, or Aurora Borealis, make Iceland one of the most spectacular places in the world to enjoy a clear star-filled sky.
Canopy by Hilton Reykjavik City Centre’s rooftop terrace has one of the most iconic views of this beautiful and charming city and the sky at night. The hotel is known for its incorporation of local elements and unique style, where all rooms and suites are decorated in shades of the ocean and volcanic rock.
Situated in the buzzing heart of Iceland’s capital city, the hotel was the first Canopy by Hilton property in the world.
