If camping just isn’t your thing, you may want to consider an alternative. “Glamping” is the term coined to describe a whole new way of interacting with nature without giving up creature comforts. In the simplest terms, it’s luxury camping, and it spares no convenience.
“Glampers” don’t want to rough it the way traditional campers are used to camping. Websites like Glamping.com and AirBnB.com are appealing because they allow people of all means to take advantage of sleeping underneath the stars in high style.
Luxury Sleeping Arrangements
There’s a variety of accommodations to choose from for high-style camping. They include :
- Villas and Huts
- Cubes and Eco Pods
- Eco and Safari Lodges
Each accommodation offers its own unique take on glamping. Rentals typically have some, if not all, of the following amenities included in their prices:
- Luxury Bedding. Ditch the sleeping bag and rest peacefully on a soft mattress instead. Larger yurts can accommodate large families by providing an ample number of places to sleep including oversized futons, hammocks, and foldaway beds.
- Kitchenettes. You don’t have to spend hours testing your outdoor skills by trying to build a fire. Simply walk into the kitchenette area of your lodge and cook a meal from scratch. Pots, pans, dishes, and utensils are usually provided free of charge.
- Private Showers and Baths. Many campsites have public showers. If you don’t want to wait for hours for the water to heat back up after several families showered ahead of you, you’ll love the idea of the private shower and bath.
You can use the AirBnB app to locate tents, yurts, teepees, treehouses, and Airstreams worldwide. If you have questions, you can communicate with your host through the app or website.
