Camping does go elegantly in Asia when the 'C' gets replaced with 'GL'!
Discover nature’s paradise in transformational, glamorous glamping
Most would agree that the best parts of travel are the unexpected surprises that meet us where we never thought we’d find ourselves. Among the most powerful are moments in nature where we become transformed through the mysterious and intriguing, allowing us to unpack the peace they’ve provided during our busy, overstimulated and seemingly complicated lives.
Does luxury only mean five-star indoor experiences? We don’t think so. Come away with us to unboxed luxury.
Three glamorous glamping getaways offer the perfect, exotic, natural rescue for disconnected, dizzying modern lives. You pick––tent or treehouse? Your senses will enjoy soaking up the stars, the silence, sensual massage, and calls of the wild.
Glampers in Nagaland have their very own butler, a guest relations executive to help with all inquiries, and an in-house (or should we say in-tent) tour manager who customises guest itineraries daily, customising them to their unique interests. Luxury tents here enclose a cosy romantic bedroom, with stunning mountain vistas, complete with a four-poster wooden bed and en-suite bathroom.
A glamping deluxe treehouse wellness retreat just outside Ubud, Bali offers jaw-dropping views of the sacred Ayung River. Enjoy an alfresco bathroom that finds you bathing under the stars, fitted with chromotherapy lighting. Each treehouse includes a private veranda, high grass-roofed ceilings, and a recycled timber floor. Amenities include a private terrace pool and special offerings like the ‘Cuisine for Life’ program which provides training in producing the ultimate cuisine to support anti-ageing, improved sleep, and greater focus in life.
Accommodation in the untamed jungles of Cambodia finds guests living among warm breezes and forever views of an impossible amount of stars under the night sky. The luxurious glamper will find two spacious queen-size beds, comfortably accommodating up to four guests, as well as a private bathroom with a shower, bathtub, vanity basin, and mirror. You’ve never seen Siem Reap like this. A pair of attendants available 24-hours a day cater to helping you experience the luxury of peace including drawing you a luxurious bath. A private driver and day planner will help glampers go where they like, especially off the beaten path. www.glampinghub.com ◼
