These Glass Pods Have The World’s Best View Of The Milky Way

No curtains necessary.

Are you finding it difficult to get a good night’s sleep? Maybe you’re living near a busy road or perhaps you just need a get away for some peace and quiet. In New Zealand, there’s an exceptional place to rest your head, with one of the world’s most magnificent views of cosmos.

PurePods are sleekly designed glass sleeping pods that are available in some of the most magical spots in NZ. Curtains and blinds have been ditched in the glass rooms, instead boasting uninterrupted and unbelievably scenic views of the country’s magnificent landscapes and clear skies.

As for in-house entertainment, there is none, so treat yourself to a digital detox and relish in all that nature has to offer. You won’t find any TVs, movies, or Wi-Fi, just a Bluetooth speaker for your favourite relax tracks.

The most popular over-night option is the Manakau Pod – featuring unbeatable views of the Seaward Kaikoura Mountain range. Situated 20 minutes inland from Kaikoura, a leisurely hike through grove trees is the main mode of transport to the room, right in the middle of a peaceful paddock.

So, as the sun starts to set, unwind, get cosy, and soak in all that New Zealand beauty. It’ll set you back $455 ($490NZD) per night, but feel free to treat yourself to a sleep-in because checkout isn’t until 12PM.
