Want to take on the wilderness without giving up on creature comforts? Then glam-camping is just the thing for you
At Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort in Oslob (a four-hour drive from Cebu City), nature meets luxury with a white sand beach, sandbars, lush mangrove area and amenities including a pool and campfire spot. Each tent comes with two beds, a closet, bedside table, toiletries and even an ice-cold minibar. Enjoy a stay with full-board meals.
8 Suites is a stylish boutique hotel that offers stunning views of Taal Lake — but the property has also kicked things up a notch with glamping services. The tents alone are pleasing to the senses — think bohemian-style interiors, designer linens and fairy
lights — and can fit two to four people. Enjoy free breakfast meals, s’mores and tea and coffee.
The Glamp, a luxury site, opened early last year in San Felipe, Zambales (three- to four- hours’ drive from Clark; five from Manila). The rental fee ensures the works — breakfast, a bonfire, s’mores kit, a massage and all the hotel amenities that come to mind, including air-conditioning. Your doggie pals are also welcome to stay.
Anguib Beach, with its several beach camping grounds, is tagged as the Boracay of the north. Check into Anguib Beach Club for something comfy that comes with a luxe touch. After you’ve had your fun on the white, powdery sands, retreat into a beachfront tent that comes with air-conditioning and spa-like amenities.
The province, reached via CEB port Puerto Princesa, is dotted with glamp sites. For a top experience, head north (about a five-hour drive) to The Birdhouse in El Nido. Situated near Marimegmeg Beach, guests will need to trek up 150 steps to get to their “nests”. Be greeted by beautiful views of Bacuit Bay and other islets. Each nest comes with its own lounge area.
