10 Cool Glamping Spots Around the Philippines
Experience the outdoors in style!
(SPOT.ph) Glamping (a.k.a. "glamorous camping"), a trendy way to experience the great outdoors without having to really rough it out, seems to be getting more and more popular in the recent years. New glamping resorts keep popping up all over the Philippines while older ones are getting on the bandwagon by offering fab tents as accommodation options.
These resorts bring you as close to nature as you can get, but with just the right balance of amenities and experiences to give you a taste of adventure aside from a chance to rest and relax.
Here are more glamping spots around the country to check out:
Riverfront Garden Resort
Barangay Pinagsanhan B, Maragondon, Cavite
Rates start at P2,000 (for two to three people)
Just two hours away from Metro Manila, Riverfront Garden Resort is the perfect destination if you’re looking for a quick weekend escape. They have rentable day beds for those who can't stay overnight, and while they provide glamping tents with mattresses and fans (or air-conditioning!), they encourage you to go off the grid and be at one with nature—there’s no WiFi on the premises!
North Beach Camp
Sitio Aprot, Barangay Caparispisan, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
Rates start at P1,800 (for two people)
North Beach Camp is quite a drive from the city as this resort is located in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. It’s so remote that the camp is powered by solar panels. But that only means you’ll be able to connect with nature even more. They have five glamping huts that can fit up to two people each, but you are allowed to bring your own tents in case you want to round up the whole gang.
Solangon Beach, San Juan, Siquijor
Rates start at P1,500 (for two people)
Comfortable amenities, spacious tents, and stunning views are what Glamping Philippines offers to their guests. Their gorgeous bell tents can fit six to 12 people, which are perfect for big groups. The magic of glamping with them is actually the location. It’s right along Siquijor’s beautiful beach, and never far away from the intriguing city spots, waterfalls, and even a butterfly sanctuary.
8 Suites Tagaytay
Lot 7, Ridge View Subdivision, Barangay Iruhin, Tagaytay City
Rates start at P4,500 (for two people)
Want to experience Tagaytay in a whole new way? Skip the usual hotspots and book an overnight’s stay in one of 8 Suites’ glamping tents. Aside from being Instagram-worthy, they also give every guest a feel of outdoor luxury. The resort even has fairy lights put up to set a romantic mood at night while you sleep under the stars.
Barangay Ping-as, Alitagtag, Batangas
Rates start at P10,000 (for four people)
The glamping accommodations at Noni’s Resort aren’t your usual tents, they’re cabins complete with private infinity pools, fire pits, and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of Taal Lake and Mt. Maculot. You don’t even have to worry about the elements dampening your holiday because you'll be safe and sound inside your fully air-conditioned glamping tent.
El Dionisio Paraiso
Banilad, Pinamalayan, Oriental Mindoro
Rates start at P500 (for two people)
If Puerto Galera is a little too crowded for your taste, but you still want to spend a weekend in Mindoro, Pinamalayan’s coast boasts similarly beautiful views. You can spend your time right by the water in one of El Dionisio Paraiso’s glamping tents. They’re more straightforward tents than you'd usually see when you go camping, but they’re fitted with mattresses for a more comfortable stay. They’re also one of the most budget-friendly options on this list.
Liwliwa, San Felipe, Zambales
Rates start at P5,000 (for three people)
Looking for a destination where your furbabies are also welcome? Then The Glamp should be on your list. Their air-conditioned tents come with a massage, a bonfire set-up, and a s’mores kit—a classic must-have for any camping activity.
Sitio Tuason, Barangay Catangnan, General Luna, Surigao Del Norte
Rates start at P3,200 (for two people)
Rest your body after a long day of surfing in one of Lampara Siargao’s glamping tents. It’s fully air-conditioned and just a few minutes away from the island’s popular Cloud 9 surf spot. It’s in a prime location too, as it’s not too far away from other well-known (but far less crowded) surfing areas like Tuason Point, Quicksilver, Jacking Horse, and Hawaiian Jacks.
Tawala, Panglao Island, Bohol
Rates start at P600/person
Glamping Alona, which opened in February 2019, offers classic glamping-style accommodations as well as plenty of common areas where you can spend quality time not just with nature, but with fellow intrepid travelers. You have the option of sharing a tent with a stranger (a.k.a. soon-to-be-travel-buddy) or rent a private tent with a queen-sized bed. Guests also have access to the resort's swimming pool; entertainment area with a billiard pool, dart board, and video games; and an in-house restaurant.
Glamping Etcetera Philippines
Lumot Lake, Cavinti, Laguna
Rates start at P2,900 (for two people)
Looking for a one-of-a-kind glamping experience? Glamping Etcetera offers geodesic dome tents that come with luxury mattresses, soft linens, a private bathroom, and toiletries. Guests can also use the kayaks, floaters, fishing rods, and body boards for free. The almost futuristic dome-like structure adds a nice twist to experiencing sleeping under the stars or waking up to a beautiful view of the lake.
