Seek a peaceful retreat surrounded by a lush environment to re-charge. For those wanting to explore the great outdoors without necessarily leaving behind contemporary comfort, glamping is one perfect way to relax. Glamping helps you be one with nature without necessarily leaving you with only the bare necessities, so you’re sure to have a fuss-free stay. Want to spoil yourself with a weekend of carefree fun? Head off to these glamping sites around the region for a lavish experience.

Hoshinoya Fuji, Yamanashi, Japan

If you want to experience Japan far from the city crowds, then this glamping site just two hours away from Tokyo is the place to go. The first-ever glamping resort in Japan definitely highlights the glam with its cube-shaped cabins that give the best view of Mt. Fuji. Spend hours just lounging around and enjoying the scenic view without the toil that comes with camping. At night, you can gaze at the stars in their tents while basking in the warmth of their camp fires in the wooden terrace. Hoshinoya Fuji also offers activities like canoeing and forest tours for those who want a more immersive outdoor experience.

Sai Yuen Farm, Cheung Chau, Hong Kong

Those seeking some light outdoor fun should head out to Sai Yuen Farm in Hong Kong. Spread over 11 acres of land, Sai Yuen Farm serves as an outdoor adventure playground that offers a wide range of activities. Try everything from archery battles to a treetop canopy walk to enjoy an exciting afternoon. The farm also houses glamping sites and their tents come in four themes: Native American Teepee, African Safari Tent, Mongolian Ger, and Star Gazing Geodesic Dome. Banish your worries away with the plethora of unique activities in store. 

The Birdhouse, El Nido, Palawan, Philippines

Treat yourself to a well-deserved break by staying a night or two at The Birdhouse in El Nido. Nestle in their stylishly rustic glamping tents and just spend the whole afternoon taking in a great view of the sea. You can go explore the neighbouring islands that dot the area, or go snorkelling to see the island’s colourful corals. But if you’d rather just disconnect and relax, the resort offers a large library that you can browse through. When the sun sets, you can enjoy the glamping resort’s barbeque pit while playing classic board games with your friends.

Sekeping Serendah, Selangor, Malaysia

Experience simple forest living with Sekeping Serendah’s outdoor retreat. Just an hour from Kuala Lumpur, it’s the perfect place to go to if you’re seeking a quick getaway for the weekend. The resort houses 10 minimalist, airy “glorified tents” made of glass and wood to give you an unobstructed view of the jungle surrounding the place. Because technological amenities like WiFi and TV are not available at the site, you’ll be given a time to peacefully reflect and rejuvenate. After spending a peaceful night with the bright stars and forest sounds, you’ll surely get all the energy you need to come back to your daily routine.

Glamping Society, Singapore

Lastly, if you’re looking for a unique way to celebrate your special moments, why not have a short vacation at Glamping Society? The first-ever glamping company in Singapore is quite accessible, as it is present in two locations within the city. You can either head to their site at East Coast Park Area G or at Punggol Container Park to enjoy tranquillity even if you’re within the city. They are the one and only glamping site that offers stylish air-conditioned tents so you can beat the heat while having fun. For those celebrating special occasions, Glamping Society is ready to help out with their fuss-free packages complete with delectable dishes, décor, and even fun-filled activities.
