Accommodation : Glamping

Does glamping really count as a luxury vacation? Surely a night under canvas is an economy option? If you pick your tented camp carefully you can immerse yourself in all the joys of being under canvas in the wilderness (nature, watching the stars etc) whilst still enjoying all the luxuries of an exclusive resort. In the best tented resorts, expect a huge and comfy bed dressed in the finest quality linens, a high-end private bathroom, deliciously opulent furnishings, hot tubs, infinity pools as well as essentials like electricity and running water. For Four Seasons or Aman-esque levels of luxury, try one of the resorts below.

Here is my pick of the best places to glamp in the world, where you do not need to give up a single luxury.
