Camping has changed over the years from the rough and rugged weekend adventures to the ultra luxury glamping phenomenon. Now there is a new trend, camping resorts, where you can experience camping without having to actually own any of the expensive equipment. Just pack your bags like you are going to any regular resort and find yourself immersed in nature for a truly unforgettable experience. Let’s explore the hottest camping resorts all over the globe and maybe you will give it a try.
Malaekahana Beach Campground – Oahu, Hawaii
Experience Hawaii’s incredible nature and weather by staying at possibly the most beautiful campground I’ve ever experienced. Spend half the time enjoying Hawaii’s warm waters by snorkeling with sea turtles and the other half enjoying the lush 160-acre wildlife refuge. Truly get back to nature on your vacation with the perfect camping trip to Hawaii. Offering a wide variety of camping experiences from hammocks and tents to yurts and cabins.
Boutique Camping – Ireland
This cute resort in the Irish countryside is a great way to enjoy nature at an affordable price. Accommodations range from tents to yurts and cabins, so pick your pleasure and you’ll be happy with it. The yurts are so cute and functional with wood burning stoves and running water. That’s about all you can ask for in a camping situation.
Jekyll Island Campground- Georgia
If you want a full on summer camp experience for adults, then Jekyll Island in Georgia may be your best bet. The 18-acre property has 206 campsites and they range from shared bunkhouses to private huts. Even RVs are welcome to experience the joys of summer camp. Eat meals in the cafeteria and drink booze and sing songs by the campfire at night, sounds fun to me.
Selinda Canoe Trail – Botswana
If you want a real safari experience that includes sleeping on the savannah with the animals, safely, then Selinda Canoe Trail is for you. You camp along the river banks and amongst the wildlife with exquisite meals prepared by an attentive staff, sounds good so far. You’ll see hippos and giraffes during the day and at nights you’ll enjoy the sounds of nature with a stiff cocktail in hand.
Sivananda Ashram Yoga Retreat – Bahamas
This resort is for serious yoga people and for those interested is an awesome experience. This ashram has a 5:30 am wakeup bell, guided meditation classes and all the yoga you can handle. There are all sorts of accommodation situations from tents to beachfront suites so everyone will be happy on the luxury spectrum. All rooms and accommodations have shared bathrooms so there will be sacrifices for some, buts it’s a yoga retreat, what do you expect?
Virgin Islands Campground – Water Island
Located a short boat ride from St. Thomas, the campgrounds on the tiny Water Island are the perfect beach camping experience. Enjoy screened in cottages or on a raised camping platform while the staff attends to your every need. This is truly a glamping experience but you are in paradise, so who cares.
Get out there and experience camping without having to buy a bunch of tents and such that you may use once a year.
