Glamping (that’s glamorous camping if you haven’t heard of it) is becoming more and more popular. Combining a camping trip with a little extra luxury can make for a relaxing vacation—especially when you find the perfect spot to hang your hammock.
So when you start planning your glamping trip, be sure to look into these locales.
Each of the treehouse units includes a comfy room with a veranda, fan, private bath, and yes, you guessed it: a hammock. They sit along the edge of the water, deep in jungle, high above the ground supported by stilts (necessary thanks to the flood season). There are plenty of activities to participate in too, including picnics in the jungle, canoeing, tree climbing, alligator spotting and more.
Unless you stay in the Canopy Honeymoon Suite or one of the Jungle View Rooms, be sure to pack your own hammock—and you’ll definitely want to considering the incredible views here. Be sure to treat yourself to a massage or go on one of the excursions, like a horseback ride or the tropical canyon tour.
On the hillside of the Baba mountains, when you stay here you’ll have amazing views of the Mediterranean Sea no matter where you stand in your glam tent. Each tent is complete with a bedroom, bathroom, veranda, hot tub, air conditioning, and yes, a hammock, so you can kick back and enjoy the view.
In the middle of the mountains on the Limpopo Province of South Africa, this glamping location has the option to spend the night in their hammock camps. Hammock camping, stargazing, bird watching—it all adds up to make a great getaway.
Treetop camping is awesome. Treetop camping in a suspended canvas hammock? Incredible. And there’s even a continental breakfast up in the trees.
Located on the Island of Espiritu Santo off the coast of Baja California, this glampsite is reachable by a 2=hour boat ride and each visit only includes up to 10 people at a time. Besides the beach, kayaking, fresh fish and spacious tents, you’ll get ultimate relaxation by kicking back in your beachside hammock.
An outdoor shower, a Japanese-style Ofuru soaking tub and outdoor veranda complete with a fire pit, and, yes, hammocks—this is a gorgeous retreat atop a 300-foot ridge overlooking Lone Man Creek.
The largest building in the Corcovado Lodge is the Hammock House. Yes, you read that right: a hammock house. Complete with a bar, a roomy deck and several lounging hammocks you can enjoy your drink and great view in.
