There’s camping, and then there’s “glamping.” For anyone who loves the idea of staying in the great outdoors but also relishes the creature comforts of a luxe resort, glamping (glamorous + camping, get it?) may be the answer. Here are four places to rough it in style.Four Seasons Tented Camp, Golden Triangle, Thailand
Elephant trekking through Thailand’s tropical jungles is on the itinerary at this elegant, 15-tent retreat overlooking the mountains of Laos. The resort features a pool, two spa pavilions, and gourmet food you’d expect from a Four Seasons resort, tents or not.
Fairmont Mara Safari Club, Kenya
Located near the Masai Mara National Reserve in Kenya, this 50-tent camp offers game drives and even hot-air balloon rides over the savannah. The walls may be canvas but the beds are four-poster, and each tent features a private viewing deck from which you can spy hippos and crocodiles.
Clayoquot Wilderness Resort, British Columbia
Stay in one of 20 well-equipped tents (including family-friendly suites) at this seaplane-accessible resort outside Vancouver. The conservation-minded “campground” features massage tents and offers such activities as hiking, kayaking, and wildlife viewing.
El Capitan Canyon, Santa Barbara, California
Glamp on the beach in breathtaking Santa Barbara. By day, you can borrow one of their beach cruisers for a seaside ride or swim at the pool. By night, you can prepare one of their barbecue kits at your fire pit, then gaze at the stars from the deck of your 12x14-foot safari tent.
