On May 26, the Super Flower Blood Moon eclipse will dominate the sky. The biggest full moon of the year, it will turn a reddish color when it moves into our planet’s shadow. This monumental event can be celebrated at these four properties.
A popular destination for stargazers, Maine’s Mount Desert Island is home to The Claremont hotel. Full-moon aficionadas are whisked away for a luxury lunar tour aboard The Liberty, a 47-foot boat with ample deck space. “The moon casting its light on Somes Sound is a magical experience,” says hotel director Jana Bissonnette, “and worth planning a vacation around.”
Beachside Hotel & Suites
Watch the full moon rise over the Atlantic Ocean at the Beachside Hotel in Cocoa Beach, Florida, where stargazing occurs along the property’s lazy river. The event is led by amateur astronomer Mark Marquette from the American Space Museum, who shares moon lore and stories from antiquity.
Conrad Punta de Mita
Mexico’s Conrad Punta de Mita offers one of the chicest spots for lunar watching. Guests can book an oceanfront dinner influenced by the moon’s phases, as a farmer guides them through the benefits of the locally sourced ingredients.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba
Honor the full moon on a traditional trajinera boat in the blue-green waterways at Riviera Maya’s five-star eco resort Banyan Tree Mayakoba. Feast beneath the stars during the signature dining experience aboard Ixchel, named after the Mayan goddess of the moon.
