There’s a wonderful variety of luxury tented camp experiences to choose from the world over. These are some of our all-time favourites.
Sandat Glamping Tents – Bali
Bali’s very first luxury tented camp was established in 2013. Exclusively located between the green rice fields of Ubud and its lush and marvelous jungle, Sandat Glamping accepts only a small number of guests at a time. This ensures absolute privacy as well as the preservation of the tranquility for which Ubud’s rice fields have become known.
The famous fields are home to 5 safari-style luxury tents overlooking a natural private pool and forest surrounded by colour-infused tropical gardens. There are plenty of awesome games to play and opportunities to simply sit back and relax too. Best of all is that the tented camp resort was constructed by craftsmen local to the region and as such, mindful of local fauna and flora.
Desert Luxury Camp – Morocco
If chasing authenticity is your thing, then look no further than the Desert Luxury Camp in Erg Chebbi, Morocco. The dunes of Erg Chebbi climb to golden sandy heights exceeding 150m, and the tented camp itself is huddled right in the burrow of the valley of dunes. The camp is remote and accessible only by camel, helicopter or 4×4 vehicle.
The camp itself is the absolute picture of decadence, with candles and silks completing the perfect picture of opulent Moroccan living fit for old-world Arab royalty. Evening dinners are prepared by Berbers, and with the utmost of culinary care. Each tent is a beautifully adorned enclosure to a large comfortable bed centre-positioned on a thick and luxurious pile of rugs. Tents are connected to bathroom tents kitted out with hand-held showers, a toilet and a stunning fossil basin. Morocco’s Desert Luxury Camp is exactly what its name suggests – the epitome of a lap of luxury.
