Looking for an escape from the hustle bustle of the city life? There’s nothing better than having a quality time with your loved ones that comes with a memorable outdoor experience. So, skip the usual movie dates, lunch or dinner dates and weekend staycation this time around for your next bonding moment and go on camping. Not just an ordinary camping but with a touch of glamour.
Glamorous camping also knows as “glamping” combines the intimacy of camping and the luxury of resort-style amenities and services. The concept of glamping can be traced wayback the early 1900s in Africa. Because there are a limited number of hotels in the area, the campsites developed an alternative way to provide the comfort and luxury of hotel accommodation to travellers.
In the Philippines, glamping has quickly become the ultimate travel experience when it started a few years ago. And for couples, this is one of the romantic experiences you should include on your bucket list.
When people hear the term camping they can’t help but think it’s hard to sleep comfortably. Because of this, they choose staying in hotel rooms rather than in tents. But forget about this perception. As a matter of fact, glamping lets you enjoy the comforts of a bedroom on outdoor tent. The moment you step inside your tent, you’ll immediately feel at ease because of the cozy mattress complete with pillows and blanket.
Glamping takes the stress out of camping, leaving you lots of time to have fun together. Setting up your tent will never be a problem. There are camp butlers who will take care of it for you. Aside from a ready-to-stay tent upon arriving at the camp site, bonfire at night will also be prepared by the camp butlers. So you don’t need to worry if you don’t know how to make fire from woods.
UNSPOILED QUALITY TIME
Contrary to a restaurant dinner date or a hotel staycation, glamping provides an avenue to build unforgettable memories with your loved ones because there’s no distraction. You can take a walk, try the resort / campsite amenities and services or simply enjoy the nature together.
“There’s nothing like being alone with your loved one. And how do you nourish your relationship? By having focused time with each other,” says Cathy Turvil, owner of Nurture Wellness Village.
If you’re planning to try this romantic outdoor experience for your upcoming anniversary, birthday or surprise escapades, Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay is among the pioneers that offer glamping in the Philippines.
