Check-In

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

If you think you’ll be park­ing it at some five-star chain or trendy life­style resort, pack away your Prada heels, be­cause this trip is all about get­ting back to na­ture. Not ready to part with your Wi-Fi and hot baths yet? Check into San­dat Glamp­ing Tents (glamp­ing = glam­orous + camp­ing)—the first of its kind in Bali, fea­tur­ing lux­u­ri­ous sa­fari-style tents, thatched roofs and canopied bed­rooms, all el­e­gantly crafted with bam­boo and ma­hogany.

Sit­u­ated in ut­ter seclu­sion in the cor­ner of a quiet rice paddy, you’ll feel as if you’ve pitched your tent on the open fields of Ubud, with the stars vis­i­ble by day as well as by night, and the only signs of life com­ing from a stray farmer weav­ing his way through the neigh­bor­ing rice pad­dies. After en­joy­ing a swim in your infinity-edged pri­vate plunge pool, reach for the wind chimes on the bed­side ta­ble (there are no phones here) to ring a mem­ber of staff for a wel­come drink—the per­fect start to your week­end in Ubud.

$2,087 from se­cret-re­treats.com; in­cludes break­fast. Jalan Subak Sala Ban­jar Sala, Ubud, Bali, In­done­sia, (+62) 82-440-81998, glamp­ingsan­dat.com
