The concept of “Glamping,” also known as glamorous camping, brings the comforts of a luxurious city hotel to the middle of nowhere, thus allowing families to experience nature without completely “roughing it.” Say goodbye to traditional camping because there’s no need to pitch a tent, unroll your sleeping bag or cook dinner. Everything is pre-prepared for you so that you can enjoy nature like nature intended.
Glamping gives families full control over where to go and what type of activities to fit into their schedules. Due to high demand, more glamping sites are popping up in mountains, on the branches of trees, along the white sandy beaches of an island and pretty much anywhere where nature reigns supreme. Essential items like towels and bedding are always provided and some tents even include a Jacuzzi. Glamping turns an ordinary tent into an extraordinary home.
Properties range in terms of both location and interior design but many amenities remain the same. For example, this rental in Jimena de la Frontera
, Spain is completely surrounded by hills, fruit trees and a wild olive forest. Inside the Thai style wooden lodge, there is a twin bedroom with a spa bath and an outside kitchen. Breakfast is served in an open gazebo. Similarly, this Waiheke Island rental
in New Zealand is remote yet still accessible to many nearby attractions including Mudbrick Vineyard and Oneroa Village. An ensuite bathroom with a large vanity is an added perk.
