The accommodation is one of the most exciting things about glamping. Most travelers feel tired after a day of activities and fun, especially if they indulged in adventures. While some people love to rough it and do not mind sleeping on the ground, most people would love to sleep on a soft bed in a room with the essential amenities.

It helps to get a good night's sleep and feel refreshed and rejuvenated for the next day. Glamping gives you several choices when it comes to comfortable and luxurious accommodation. In this article, we are going to discuss some of them, so that you can make the right choice the next time you go glamping.

Luxury Resorts

Luxury resorts are one of the most intelligent choices for accommodation for glamping. These resorts are located at strategic locations with multiple options for activities and adventures. The accommodations are full of luxuries beyond what regular resorts offer.

Some of them have different options for your stay, such as huts, lodges, tents, and several others. You can enjoy the unspoiled wilderness during the day, yet feel relaxed and pampered at night in one of the most comfortable glamping accommodations.

Farmhouses

Farmhouses are another popular option of luxurious accommodation for glamping. They are either newly built or the existing infrastructure is renovated for the ultimate rural glamping experience. People love the rustic settings of farmhouses while they experience the daily activities of rural life away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Farmhouses are usually large with lofty interiors, which makes them ideal for large groups and families. Some of them also offer unique experiences like cheese making or wine tasting.

Airstreams

Airstreams are vintage trailers that are iconic to the American RV culture. These trailers can be easily distinguished from regular ones due to their rounded and polished aluminum exteriors. These days, Airstreams can be found placed in permanent locations amidst natural surroundings for glampers.

Some of them still have retrofitted interiors, while others have been renovated using modern amenities. Airstreams are also available for rent if you wish to hook one to your truck and go for an RV trip.

Glamping Pods/Domes

Several glamping destinations have started to offer these quirky looking dome/half-dome shaped accommodations. Glamping pods offer several luxurious amenities, but they are much less expensive.

Most glamping pods are eco friendly, which makes them ideal for those who do not wish to leave a carbon footprint in the natural surroundings. Some glamping domes are made with heavy-duty tents, while some others are shaped like an igloo. A large part of these domes is see-through, which makes them ideal for stargazers.

Tents

Tents have not been excluded when it comes to glamping. However, these are not ordinary tents that you can carry with your backpack. Glamping tents are permanently fixed accommodations that offer luxurious amenities, such as comfortable beds, ensuite bathrooms, and even hot tubs. You won't have to bother about pitching the tent after a long day of adventure. All you need to do is get in and relax.

Tipi

Tipis look like elongated conical tents that stay warm during cold weather and cool when it is hot outside. However, even though glamping Tipis are shaped like the one used by the nomads, the insides are nothing like them. These Tipis are made from more durable materials and offer luxurious amenities, which makes staying inside them a memorable experience.

Treehouse

Treehouses can take your glamping experience back to your childhood. Modern treehouses offer all the bells and whistles of luxurious accommodations, and yet they can take you back to the days of carefree fun and backyard adventure. Plus, most glamping treehouses offer an awe-inspiring panoramic view. Treehouses are often situated in places where you can find wilderness all around you.

Yurts

Yurts are one of the oldest forms of glamping accommodations and date back to Mongolia when Genghis Khan ruled most of Asia. They are another form of luxury tents, but they are round and often larger. Yurts also offer eco-friendly accommodation that doesn't leave a large carbon footprint on the natural surroundings.

Huts and Cottages

Huts and cottages are also part of the old tradition of glamping. They are often situated in extremely remote locations. Traditionally the luxuries are limited to a comfortable bed, ensuite bathroom, a kitchen, and a fireplace. But these days, you can find huts and cottages that offer several other luxuries. In any case, they can provide an exceptional glamping experience to any modern-day traveler.

People are getting more imaginative with glamping accommodations every day. Destinations are creating unique ways to ensure that glampers can enjoy the natural surroundings and yet enjoy luxurious comforts at the end of the day.

Some glamping destinations focus on providing eco-friendly accommodation, while others concentrate on luxuries so that you can choose the type that suits you the best.
