5 Glamping sites for a crowd-free holiday

The best Glamping spots in Malaysia to give you a peace of mind

If planning a camping trip is something you’ve wanted to do, but you always feel put off whenever you think off the hassle of pitching a tent or the awkwardness in finding a spot as your ‘toilet’ – then glamping may be just right for you.

Glamping is a relatively new holiday trend that puts together the wonders of nature and the comfort of a luxury stay together. Basically, the ‘glamorous’ puts the ‘G’ in Glamping.

Especially with what’s floating around these past months, it may be wise to plan a vacation that’s far awaayyy from congestion. And what better to do that than in the jungle, WITHOUT the need to compromise on comfort?

It’s time for a wholesome new experience with these 5 glamping spots in Malaysia.

 

1 – Lost World of Tambun, Perak

Nope, you didn’t read it wrong.

Did you know that Lost World of Tambun has a section dedicated just for Glamping?! This area is tucked a little further out from the theme park, surrounded by trees on one side and giant limestone cliffs on the other.

And while the Lost World of Tambun attracts thousands of visitors a day, there are only a handful of campsites available. Campers will still have access to the theme park, night parks, and all the activities and shows included – but instead of heading home after a fun day out, they will retreat to a cosy tent.

The tents are equipped with a king size bed, lights, fan, power sockets; and includes a cabinet with mirror and basic amenities. Oh, and there’s even Wifi too! With a price, you can also add-on an air conditioner and a BBQ set for 2 pax.

Right outside the tent is a huge lake where you can go kayaking; and around the premises are other activities such as zip-lines and rope courses.

Just 45 minutes away from Kuala Lumpur, nestled in the foothills of Janda Baik is 7 acres of Glamping heaven.

The Tiarasa Escapes glampsite sits among towering trees and fruit orchards; with the vibrant rare birds and fluttering butterflies fluttering about.

There are 20 tented villas and 5 luxurious treetop villas in the premises with a river that cuts across the site. In the day, campers can explore the grounds with a ranger to spot the Woodpeckers and Cuckoos inhabiting the woods.

When night falls, the cinema rises. That’s right. The Moonlight Cinema is set up every night for you to have a unique movie night in the open air, comforted by picnic mats and comfy cushions!

Keep in mind that you’re in the middle of the jungle! That means there will be less light pollution to block the stars. Gaze at the nightsky through the Calestron telescope – an activity curated by one of the world’s most prominent physicist, Dato Mazlan Othman!

The highlights of nature and all the luxury of a peace of mind can be found at the Tiarasa Escapes.

The Gopeng Glamping Park gives visitors an all-encompassing camping experience with fun activities all day long.

The glampsite is enclosed with stunning views of trees, hills, and rivers. There are a host of activities and facilities available for you to make the most out of your time here. You can either choose to rent a bicycle or dirt bike to explore the grounds, or if you’d like to idle time away instead, make yourself comfortable on the outdoor furniture or the giant wooden swing.

Near the Gopeng Glamping Park are other outdoor activities such as water rafting and water abseiling which you can try.

But don’t worry, you don’t have to go too far to find entertainment. The glampsite itself will have fire shows and live bands in the evening, and not to mention a karaoke set for sing-a-long round the campfire.

The Tanah Aina Fahad Nature Escape is located along the Sungai Dong (Dong River).

This glampsite has a few varieties of tents available. For a solo stay, the Single Tent promises to ‘rejuvenate the senses’ and sits near the river and the water fountain. The Shared Tent is a longer tent with edgy design balanced with modern furnishings. For a trip for two, the Queen Tent and the King Tent both offers stunning views of the forest and the atmosphere perfect for couples to snuggle to.

The cool thing about this place is that the vegetables in your meals are grown in the resort itself, so you’re basically treated with a garden-to-plate healthy meal during your stay here.

Take the trek route through the heart of the jungle where you’ll walk on a suspension bridge over an ancient river, and let your mind immerse in the sound of the gushing river and singing birds.

In the evening, stay cooped in your cosy tent or lay out too watch the shimmering stars.

Boutel Orchard has arguably one of the more unique glamping tents you’ll see.

This glamping site sits on 5 acres of organic permaculture durian orchard, all cultivated organically, and all available for eating during the season.

There are 2 ‘tents’ to choose from. You have the Honeycomb, which is a 3 hexagon-shaped pods stacked together which fits about 3 adults, or 2 adults and 2 kids.

The other slightly more luxurious option is the Cube Cabin. This isn’t exactly a tent, but it still gives ideal views of the running river. The Cube Cabin comes with an attached bathroom, a pantry, a dining table for 4, and 2 queen beds.

For your leisure, there are hammocks strung up across the campsite and by the river. If you’re lucky to book at the right season, you’ll get to enjoy organically grown durians, mangosteens, rambutans, and a range of other fruits the Glampsite is tending to.

Some have mentioned that you can see fireflies at night, so keep an eye out for the flickering of lights!
