From Camping to Glamping: Our Guide to Luxury Wilderness in Bali

Glamping Nusa Penida

So, you’ve booked your flights to Bali and your bags are already packed through sheer excitement alone. Firstly – congratulations! You’ve taken the first step toward the most stunning and culturally enlightening trip of your life. Why not further immerse yourself into your Indonesian getaway by ‘glamping’ during your life-changing stay? A portmanteau of ‘glamorous’ and ‘camping’, experience Bali in style through combining resort stay luxuries with the adventure of roughing it outdoors amongst some of the finest wildlife this side of the equator. Sound good? We know it does.

La Cocoteraie

Seasoned Bali travellers may want to adventure to another of Indonesia’s 17,508 islands – why not catch a boat to Gili Trawangan? On an island with no motor vehicles, La Cocteraie lies secluded within a coconut plantation. Take a horse-drawn carriage to the white beaches or the WW2 relics that hide across the island. If horses aren’t your style – the entire island can be walked in an hour, so you can take in the sights and sounds of the island at your leisure.

Divulge in the on-site restaurant and bar or relax by the pool after a day of discovery. This tropical paradise is suitable for the whole family, and there’s even the family cat Coco if you really want to get to know the locals!
