5 Glamping Spots In The Philippines You May Not Know About Yet
Glamping is that sweet spot between luxury travel and camping when you can enjoy the wilderness without having to go full-on Bear Grylls. It means you can wake up to the sound of birds and the smell of trees, but don’t have to sleep on a skinny sleeping bag with your legs sticking out of your tent. More importantly, it also means you don’t have to dig a hole every time you poop. Glamping in the Philippines has definitely grown more and more popular over the years. Popular glamping spots in the Philippines like Easy Adventure in Baler and Crystal Beach Resort in Zambales have made it to countless Instagram posts and blogs. At the same time, new glampsites keep the glamping game exciting for all of us. Here are five glampsites you may not have heard of yet—bookmark for your next escape!
This relatively new glampsite has only four spacious canvas tents (or “nests”) dressed in a sunny, island-luxe style and opening up to stunning views of Bacuit Bay. Located on El Nido’s Maremegmeg Beach, it’s the perfect jump-off point to enjoy El Nido’s famous islands and lagoons and catch the sunset. It’s also near enough to El Nido town, but nestled high up on a hill so you still get peace and quiet. Between all of that, it’s pretty much impossible to decide what the best part of The Birdhouse is. The good news is, you can enjoy all of that (and more) when you come for a stay.
As far as glamping spots in the Philippines go, this may be the most unique one. After all, who wants to go glamping in the city? But if it’s in a city like Baguio, surrounded as it is with pine trees and mountains, you still get the feel of being in the Great Outdoors, minus the effort of actually getting there. Located in a rooftop in one of Baguio’s quieter neighborhoods, B.Glamp has a great mountain view. And with 2-person to 6-person tents around central bonfire pit, the camping feel definitely comes to life. If you’re a backpacker exploring the region, and you find yourself in Baguio for a few days or a weekender looking for something new to do, this is a great option to try!

Tablas Island in Romblon is arguably one of the hottest destinations in the Philippines this year. If you want to see what all the fuss is about, Tablas Point may be your best starting point. The open-air “safari tents” have queen- or king-size canopy beds, a sitting area, and a terrace so you definitely won’t be roughing it. Nanny services, massage services, and speedboat rentals are also available among other things, so your getaway is as relaxing as it is exciting.
4Ultra Winds Mountain Resort
When it comes to glamping spots in the Philippines, Ultra Winds gives you both luxury and isolation. Nestled among trees on a mountainside in Bukidnon, Ultra Wind’s Safari tents promise breezy days leading to cool, starry nights. With each tent big enough to fit up to five beds, it’s the perfect choice for that long overdue barkada summer outing. The resort itself also offers a zipline, horseback riding, and, most importantly, K A R A O K E. After all, just because you’re in the wilderness doesn’t mean you can’t let out your inner diva.
5Sand and Stars Beach Resort
The name itself tells you what you can expect from this glampsite. Only an hour and a half away from the popular surfing spot that is Baler, it’s a great alternative for those who want something a little quieter. The resort does have airconditioned cottages on offer. But the colorful beachfront tents filled with cozy pillows are infinitely more inviting. As far as glamping spots in the Philippines goes, this is one of the most laidback options.
