About

They say that there are seven wonders of the world -- they’re going to say we’ve created the first earthly wonder of the universe. How? 

FAQ#1 How much will the rooms cost?    

  • Answer: A recently aired broadcast mentioned a room price of $750. Guests will not be paying $750 per night. That is the VIP presidential suite price. Typical prices will be a lot more affordable and under $300 depending upon seasonality. -

Be amongst the first to stay the night in a Space Ship for an unforgettable experience 

So as we designed the hotel, we took the time to stretch ourselves and push all the limits to make every inch of the hotel the most extraordinary it could possibly be. After months of planning, we’ve stretched our imaginations to come up with a hotel that surpasses our wildest dreams. 

UFO Colony Concept
UFO Colony Concept

The most memorable figures throughout contemporary culture like Walt Disney are not remembered by the things that they wished they had done -- rather, they are remembered by the things that they did; the moments of glory looking upon their accomplishments, glancing at history and being just crazy enough to do it. 

Let me tell you more about this incredible UFO HOTEL, just outside Las Vegas in the California desert. Just where you would expect to find a UFO Hotel shaped like an enormous alien spacecraft. 

This first of its kind boutique UFO Hotel will include a restaurant, gift shop, spa, pool, pool bar and 31 themed rooms. The rooms will all have themes that correspond with space travel (an asteroid field), alien worlds (a floating city) and the functional parts of the ship such as a weapons room and a transporter room.

 

Entering the UFO Hotel Tour, you are in a spaceship and you are already in the future. This is everything you ever dreamed of and more. Bring an open mind and be prepared for the journey that will give you a fully immersive experience. Here are a few sneak peaks of what you will likely see when you take the tour.  

The UFO Hotel sleeping rooms are a fully immersive experience. Finally have your dreams come alive and feel like you're an actual passenger on a life-like spaceship! Whether its a weekend vacation or a quick overnight -- you're sure to have a getaway that's out of this universe!

Each of the 31 guest rooms will be unique so you can choose the room that offers you an unforgettable experience which cannot be matched in any hotel on this planet. 

The UFO Hotel after hours entertainment will transport you to another world where you will pass those long hours in space by having a bit of fun. This is a part of the world just down the road from Las Vegas where some of the greatest shows create the most enduring memories.  

Club UFO Hotel

The Hotel grounds are designed to give you the full experience with more to see an experience with every step. Lots of picture taking likely to go on because you know that no one is going to believe you when you tell them what you saw and experienced. We plan to bring you the very best in on open air and stage entertainment with well known artists and stage personalities.

Our concert and performance venues are destined to become historical events that bring people together from everywhere on the planet. 

Getting married in one of our planned wedding venues will be a date to remember forever. Pick the planet you most want to get married on and we will set a course to fulfill your dreams. 

Out Door Wedding at The UFO Hotel
Out Door Wedding at The UFO Hotel

Since the beginning of human culture on this planet, we’ve always been extremely fascinated with what lies beyond the clouds -- the stars mocking us, giving promise of something...well...more. Visionary authors like HG Wells have told tales like The Ware of the Worlds and extraordinary directors like Steven Spielberg with the masterpiece, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. 

People have been spellbound at this promise and will continue to dream -- and hope -- that there is some small chance it’s real, that there’s some small chance that we’re not alone. Luis Ramillo is building The UFO Hotel and he needs your help to raise the funds required to advance the project to the next phase. 

Even though Luis has already purchased the land, obtained site approval and spent years planning every detail, it's not that easy to get a loan for a project of this type. It takes something more to prove there is a audience for this type of unique attraction and experience. 

We need you to show the community and prospective investors that we have a dedicated following who have shown their support by giving this project a significant start on funding. Without a clear message, this extraordinary hotel will not be built. 

Even if you can’t contribute with money, I can’t tell you how much I would appreciate any support you can give. Please forward this campaign to anybody who may be interested! Share and post on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and any other way you desire. The more shares we get, the more people who know about it, and the more Kickstarter will be likely to share our campaign! In all seriousness, a few clicks of your mouse can do a lot to help this project. Contributors will be remembered on our digital wall of appreciation -- thank you all for your help!

Following the development of the UFO Hotel, we'll bring you the Mothership Mall. We'll tell you all about it in the future. 

The UFO Hotel has forever been destined to be the first piece of Baker’s alien colony and the first earthly wonder of the universe.

Luis Ramallo Story

The American Dream has given hope to millions -- jobless, broke, struggling to feed families all over the world. The faintest glimmer of promise echoes from the Statue of Liberty's torch -- taunting all that dare take that fateful leap; crossing onto the land of the Stars & Stripes with pennies in their pocket and a head full of dreams. 

On one such fateful occasion, a young Luis Ramallo, an electrical contractor traversing the globe to find work to take care of his family -- took one such leap after hearing from a friend that California held promise of work, and so much so that he would be able to bring his whole family here and start a life. After having brought his family over as promised, 

Luis discovered Las Vegas, a literal mecca for electrical contracting. Risking everything, he got himself a license to contract in Nevada. The day that Luis spent his last $100 on a newspaper ad served as a turning point in what some would call a miracle. The bids started to come in, 8 calls a day, the work flowing in. Luis had made it and in less than 3 months he'd grossed nearly $20k and was on track to finally have the life he always dreamed of with his family until fate knocked on Luis' door one more time.

Luis' friend recommended to him that he start selling beef jerky -- an as such, Luis gave it a try. They just so happened to be near Area 51 known for its alien presence.  

"He believes in it before seeing it," says Martin Luis' son, who, like two of his sisters, works for his father. "That's the difference between visionaries and spectators. That's him. He's the visionary." 

 Luis started to see success selling beef jerky and one day a sheriff asked him for his identification and he handed the sheriff an alien green card. "Ah an alien in Area 51 huh?," said the sheriff. That sparked the idea for the name, Alien Fresh Jerky. 

So for the past 10+ years, Luis has been selling Alien Fresh Jerky to hundreds of thousands of people who come by his store in Baker, CA. On average, 750,000 people come by his store every year. All the while, Luis has continued working on his dream to create the most unique UFO Hotel in the world. 

He dreams of this UFO Hotel being the ultimate family destination for both young and old who enjoy science fiction and who want to experience and touch the future. 

While we are only asking for $175,000 in this campaign, we need much more to develop this incredible project. Initial funds are going to create a detailed set of plans and construction drawings followed by a wide range of permits needed for the construction. 

We would love to see the passion of people of all ages and from all walks of life show their interest and passion for a much deeper scifi experience than you will find on the planet today. 

Why become a UFO Hotel Backer?

In simple terms, we can’t do this without you. By joining the community of UFO Hotel Backers, you are contributing to a dream that will be shared with thousands of people who have always wanted to step into the future and experience what being on an alien space ship would be like. 

For some, your contribution will be in the satisfaction that you had a hand in bringing something new to this world and for others, you will enjoy visiting, bringing your friends and or your family to enjoy a truly memorable experience.  

My mission is to give people a place that takes them away and unlocks their imagination. Dreams and possibilities are the foundation for everything else.

Risks and challenges

I have always believed that everything happens for a reason. Although I went through a lot of harsh periods when I first started with the Alien Fresh Jerky business, today, I am so grateful that all these difficulties happened to me then. Now I know the Baker area and the rules inside and out, so I will be able to minimize the problems we face while building the UFO Hotel. Because I am now a native and I have earned the trust of the locals, I can make project into something remarkable with a community’s help. Because of my experience, persistent attitude, and entrepreneurial mind and spirit, I am completely confident in my ability to make this project a success.
