StarDome has always been more than a hotel. The business started as a means to benefit people who are in search of something: spiritual connection, answers to questions, or even just a stable job.
The late co-founder, Bob Berman, met current owner, Carlos Gibaja, while in search of answers to his wife’s passing. Carlos introduced Bob to the sacred land on Mt. Antanuca, giving him space to use his pain to connect to the Apus. Bob allowed himself to open up to what the spirits had to say and as a result he accessed much-needed healing.
It’s with this exact power and spirituality upon which StarDome was inspired. Bob and Carlos intended that each willing person have access to the same healing. And it's in honor of Bob's spirit and in aim of this mission that we continue to provide a space for it.
The staff at StarDome is a family. From ensuring job security to sharing chicha during work breaks, our goal is to make sure each member feels valued and supported.
We recognize the importance of resources to education, and of education to a person's opportunities in life. A portion of our profits goes to local schools in Ollantaytambo, in hopes of increasing opportunity in the community from which StarDome received its own.
StarDome was built to connect the Apus with those open to authenticity and abundance. There is no place like StarDome, and we want you to access the healing our home can provide!
