Incredible glamping spots, from the Maldives to Dubai

Love the great outdoors? Get back to nature with a night spent under the stars at one of these incredible glamping spots

Trailer treasure

This outdoorsy Dubai enclave has had a trendy makeover by Meraas to lure adventure seekers, complete with cosy lodges and vintage trailers to bed down in along the bank of Hatta Dam. After a restful night’s sleep, get active by setting off on a mountain bike, going zorbing, ziplining, or whizzing down the shoots at the water jump park – you can even test your skills at axe throwing. It’s all part of the Hatta Wadi Hub experience.


Welcome to the jungle

Do the Maldives, safari-style, by staying in the Jungle Tented Villas at Fairmont Maldives Sirru Fen Fushi. In this secluded spot, you can brave the wilderness from your rustic abode, albeit with a few little luxuries on hand, including an outdoor rain shower and roll-top tub. The atoll is a 50-minute seaplane ride from Malé International Airport. 


Carmo’s Boutique Hotel

Discover the traditions, cultural heritage, and distinct architecture of the beautiful Minho region of Portugal at this boutique hideaway, which is nestled in the hills of Ponte de Lima, the oldest town in the country. Ditch the more traditional rooms in favour of the Portuguese Colonial style luxury tent experiences and you’re sure to feel at one with the beautiful countryside. The property is just 40 minutes from Porto.
