The Best Glamping Sites in the Philippines
When one talks about camping, he or she will automatically think of setting up a tent, gathering wood for the bonfire, and hunting for game for a meal. However, that is merely an exaggeration. Glamping in the Philippines is rapidly becoming a trend because it offers the comforts of pre-pitched tents in secluded but comfortable areas. The campers—or glampers as they are called—also feast on meals like they were prepared in restaurants.
Glamping is somewhat like merging nature with a high-class suite. If you are interested in trying glamping, here are some sites you can consider going to:
Casa Antonio Vacations
Location: White Beach Calatagan, Batangas
Glamping at Casa Antonio means you’ll have the luxury of seeing their magnificent beach during your stay! At P4, 500 for two, their package includes three meals, a 24-hour maintenance and security, your own picnic table, access to the exclusive beach club and, of course, your tent with a mattress. In addition to that, glampers will also enjoy the luxury of going on a jet ski and renting kayaks for a relaxing sight seeing around the resort.
Bluewater Sumilon Island Resort
Location: Sumilon Island, Oslob, Cebu
It is leaning on the expensive side, but that is absolutely worth it because the glamping site is an entire tropical island! Glampers will be treated to white-sand beaches, ever-changing sandbars, and a natural lagoon with mangrove trees occupying said body of water. Amenities include a pre-pitched tent with two single beds, a closet, toiletries, a mini-bar, an electric fan and full meals. The package also includes round-trip boat transfers from Oslob to Sumilon and back. What’s more, Bluewater also offers scuba diving at the marine sanctuary and going on a tour in a nearby cave.
Nurture Wellness Village
Location: Maitim II West, Tagaytay, Cavite
Are you in need of a healthy dose of nature? Come to the Nurture Wellness Village in Tagaytay! This glamping site offers ecotherapy, or healing by nature. Their package includes a camping tent situated under the shade of trees, a facial or foot massage, toiletries, healthy power meals, and instant service in case you need help setting your camp. The place also offers activities like tai chi gong and a tour in their organic farm for the glampers to enjoy.
San Rafael River Adventure
Location: Talacsan, San Rafael, Bulacan
If you want to experience an exceptional glamping experience, consider going to San Rafael River Adventure.

They offer Day, Night, and Overnight packages and they have these so-called “Glamping with a Twist” packages. This is where glampers get to be in a floating cottage that can be taken on a river cruise.
