A one-of-a-kind Luxury 5 bedroom private residence contained within
a glass Geodesic Dome over-looking the Sacred Valley Of Peru
3000 m (10000‘) below.
StarDome is the private home and spiritual retreat of Bob Berman. Bob’s Mission is to introduce people to and help them optimize their innate ability to Self Heal. It has led Bob to his mountaintop retreat in the Sacred Valley of Peru and his close affiliation with the native Quechuan community there from whom he has learned that to truly heal, we must reconnect with ourselves. To do that, we must reconnect with Pacha Mama (Mother Earth).
At the invitation and with the help of the local Quechuan and their Apus (the Mountain Spirits), Bob has built the StarDome on one hectare (2.5 acres), 3000 m (10000’) on top of their sacred mountain known as Antaluca, which has not been visited by non-natives in 2000 years. It is a place of sacred reverence and connection to Pacha Mama.
A few times a year, Bob in fulfillment of his Mission, Bob invites select visitors to connect with themselves by connecting with the incredible energy of the people and land of the Sacred Valley. He has curated a unique 4 day StarDome Experience to facilitate Self Connection and Heart Opening through personal interaction with the local Quechuan culture and the healing energy of the Sacred Valley.
If you are among the select Visitors, here’s what you’ll Experience:
Day 1: Your Experience will begin with a personal pickup at the Cusco airport by Bob’s personal driver who will take you to the Palacio del Inka, a Luxury Collection Hotel. There, you will be greeted by Bob’s friend, Carlos Fernandez, one of the Managers of the Hotel where you will enjoy dinner and an overnight.
Day 2: After breakfast at the Hotel, you will be greeted by Bob’s Quechuan friend and guide, Cristian, who will take you on a personal guided walking tour of the important sites of Cuzco. The walk will end at one of Bob’s favorite luncheon spots. After lunch, Cristian will drive you to the StarDome with an ETA of 3 pm. The drive takes about 1 hour from Cusco. Upon arrival at the StarDome, you will be given a warm greeting (usually by Bob himself) and thereafter you’ll be taken to one of Bob’s 5 luxurious bedrooms. After enjoying an organic dinner of local fare prepared by Bob’s personal cook, Juanita, you’ll enjoy some fireside Quechuan story telling by native elder, Narcisco, before retiring for the night. Don’t forget to spend some time on the observation deck above your room gazing at the star filled Universe before climbing into your cozy duvet and bed...
