25 of the Best Luxury Worldwide Glamping Retreats

Host Writer
Published 15/03/2021 25 of the Best Luxury Worldwide Glamping Retreats


Glamping' - or glamorous camping - is a concept that originated in the UK back in the early Noughties... becoming so popular that the word was officially added to the Oxford English Dictionary in 2016!

The concept has since taken off worldwide (because who knew that combining the natural beauty of the countryside with hotel-style luxury would catch on?)

But as fabulous as that sounds, knowing you can take a glamping holiday just about anywhere in the world doesn't exactly narrow down your options!

So, we've done the hard work for you, with our hand-picked selection of luxury glamping spots, beautifully spread right across the globe.
