Give In To Glamping At These Beautiful Luxury Camps In India

Sleeping under the twinkling stars, taking long walks amongst lush, untamed greenery or simply simply seeing wildlife in its natural habitat, camping offers opportunities that are unique and truly worth experiencing. However, there is also a less glamorous side of nature like mosquito bites, uncomfortable sleeping options and, of course, nature calls in the wilderness. The solution: Glamping that offers the luxuries of a five-star hotel in the lap of nature. 

Plush tented accommodations with modern facilities and comforts along with fine dining options, spa treatments, and plunge pools make these nature stays a pleasure. You can enjoy the environs as well as get some much-needed rest and recuperation. Looking to explore the beautiful and diverse flora and fauna, the country has to offer?
