Imagine nature, adventure, luxury and comfort all packed in one trip. The relatively new concept of glamping — a portmanteau of glamorous and camping is proving its appeal as an alternative to those who wish to upgrade from the conventional camping experience where the breathtaking nature meets modern luxury. Glamping sites also offer exclusive amenities and even top-tier services so customers can focus on indulging in the splendid scenery or unique local cultures.
As a response to the growing glamping interest among the Vietnamese middle class and Gen Zs, luxury camping sites in the country are expanding in number and assorted services and activities they can provide, making this a fresh and exciting idea for enthusiasts to cross off their bucket list.
Just because the long holiday is over doesn’t mean you stop planning for a getaway. We listed five luxury camping destinations of various styles and locations for you to choose from, with the price range included.
Tanyoli Amusement Park
Tanyoli, which shorts for Tango Your Life, is an outdoor tourist destination perfect for those who wish to immerse in the nomadic lifestyle in a vast and magnificent landscape of grasslands and mountain ranges at one of the driest, sunniest places in Vietnam.
Located in Dinh Cape or Mui Dinh, Thuan Nam District of Ninh Thuan Province, 30 km from the city center of Phan Rang - Thap Cham and around 345 km from Ho Chi Minh City, the 15-hectare park covers a Mongolian-style camping village and activity areas where tourists can practice archery, horseback riding, go kayaking or even rent a utility task vehicle to discover the golden sand dunes.
Situated in a rather deserted location, Tanyoli Amusement Park is an escape from reality and a chance to reignite our connection with nature. Tents and bungalows of different capacities are equipped with air conditioners, bathrooms and lighting systems, with the renting price per night varying from VND350,000 to VND1.3M.
With a favorable location on a secluded hilltop overlooking the Tri An lake, Tropical EGlamping in Dinh Quan District, Dong Nai Province, 96km from HCMC is the perfect weekend escape from the bustling and hectic life in the city.
Only started operating in November last year, they have received lots of support and positive feedback from customers. With a peaceful view of Tri An lake at sunset, Tropical EGlamping elevates the experience with AC-equipped glamping tents, a campfire, a barbecue and a bar area, making it undoubtedly a desirable and peaceful retreat.
Besides glamping and catering services, Tropical EGlamping also provides glamping equipment in great numbers for planned tours or teambuilding events. The renting price for a tent is around VND1.6M per night.
CampArt by #MoJen
A social media-popular glamping destination with more than 60,000 likes on their Facebook page, CampArt in reality welcomes no more than 30 guests per day to ensure the privacy and luxury camping experience of their guests.
Located in Vang Valley in Lam Dong province, 15km from Da Lat city center, the camping site is characterized by minimalistic tents, intricate setups and a makeshift bar modified from an old food van. With a pine forest and the Suoi Vang Lake in its surroundings, the camp gives off a dreamy and tranquil impression, all the more enhanced by the typical chilly weather of Da Lat.
With a relatively upmarket price of around VND900,000/pax/night, CampArt provides a service of extensive camping amenities, high-quality two-layer tents and a Western-style self-catering menu of steak, smoked goose breast, pasta and soup for dinner.
LAK Tented Camp
Ideally located on a hill facing Lak Lake, the largest natural lake in Vietnam, the 4.8-hectare LAK Tented Camp in Dak Lak province, Central Highland Vietnam prides itself as a luxurious eco-friendly glamping location only an hour drive from Buon Ma Thuot airport.
With 15 tents, four lakeview bungalows adorned with fabric patterns and symbols from the local ethnic group M’nong and a few other accommodation options, the service offered at LAK Tented Camp is that of a high-end resort, including indoor and outdoor dining facilities and bars.
Created with concerns for the unique local culture and sustainable development, the camp gets resources onsite, from homegrown vegetables to natural water sources and employs the locals to create more jobs and opportunities.
Aside from providing tent and bungalow options, ranging from VND1.8 to 3.4M, the resort also offers packaged tours for visitors who wish to experience the local lifestyle and engage in outdoor activities like kayaking or cycling.
