Sure, camping in the woods with no technology and bugs flying outside to keep you company is the ideal vacation for some people, but for others, it’s their worst nightmare. Glamping combines modernity with the connectedness to nature that camping provides, and these are just a few retreats who are acing the glamping game.
First opening in Vail, Colorado, Collective Retreats is all about helping people connect to each other and to nature in a way they thought was lost to modern technology. Now they have multiple locations, all of which are succeeding in their mission. They offer different style accommodations for whatever experience you’re looking for, as well as amenities such as nightly communal campfires, an in-tent coffee bar, and even 1,000 thread count sheets.
This modern-day retreat lies in Northern California, with a motto that says it all: “You show up, we pitch the tent.” Their tents are fully stocked, the ocean is just a walk away, and fire pits are ready for use. Tent prices are based on anything from views to size (many are family and pet-friendly), so get to booking and get ready to enjoy the great California outdoors in style.
“For nature served on a silver platter, go glamping,” is what Paws Up preaches, and they may be onto something. What sets this resort apart is the camping butler. That’s right, they have a butler on-call for whatever you may need throughout your stay. They also have cocktails ready for your fireside chats, a top-notch dining pavilion, and honeymoon-style tents complete with claw-foot bathtubs. For the more extravagant camper, this is the place for you.
This safari-inspired retreat encompasses sustainability with elegance to make for one relaxing week away. They have plenty to offer: WiFi, hot tubs, pristine fishing spots, and, of course, endless views. Not to mention the adventure aspect that Sinya offers, such as zipling opportunities and plenty of swimming holes to be enjoyed at your leisure.
