‘Kosmos’ All-Inclusive Stargazing Resort Breaks Ground Near Great Sand Dunes National Park

Kosmos luxury glamping resort just broke ground in the San Luis Valley of Colorado, with plans to install a full observatory, spa, and stargazing villas — for $700 to $1,200 per night.

A new luxury glamping resort broke ground on April 8 in Colorado’s San Luis Valley, high in the Rocky Mountains. When complete, it will boast spa and health and wellness amenities, uniquely designed villas, and the main attraction — according to the resort’s founder, Gamal Zalaquett — a full-size planetarium and observatory.

The massive Kosmos Resort project will sit just outside of an International Dark Sky Park (IDSP).

“People are looking to disconnect from the city and connect with themselves, with their significant others, or connect with nature, with the stars,” Zalaquett told GearJunkie. “We want to provide everybody with the tools to do that. And I think we’re going to do so in a very well-rounded way.”

The cost to stay at this immersive “astro-tourism” luxury glamping resort will range from $700 to $1,200 per night (tax included). Zalaquett said the resort will eventually be all-inclusive, so once you’re there, all amenities, services, tips, food, and drinks will be paid for.

While Kosmos has officially acquired building permits and started construction, Zalaquett confirmed the project is still raising money. When complete, he estimates the total cost at $11.5 million. Zalaquett says he’s hoping to welcome his first guests in January 2025.
