Let’s face it, no one’s going to Mars anytime soon, despite Elon Musk’s best efforts. That hasn’t stopped people from imaging what hanging out on martian soil might be like, though.
The Sun City Camp in Jordan’s Wadi Rum desert is designed to be an alien experience on Earth. The resort is set on red-dirt land, which we have to admit, looks curiously similar to the Red Planet’s surface.
Visitors can stay in Bedouin-style tents, but if you’re looking for a truly otherworldly glamping experience, the better bet is grabbing a Martian Dome, a geodesic structure modeled after Buckminster Fuller’s famous design.
Each of the inflatable domes is tricked out with a terrace, private bathroom, and a king-sized or double bed facing a wall of windows that looks out onto the red land. Squint and it almost looks like you’re on Mars, if Mars had gravity and orange juice for mimosas in the morning.
