If your idea of camping is checking into the St. Regis in Aspen, Colorado, ‘glamping’ might be your thing. Short for ‘glamorous camping,’ glamping is an opportunity to get close to nature, with a comfortable bed, luxurious bathroom, and depending where your staying, an actual roof over your head.
Our favorite duchess is a fan of the activity, enjoying a romantic getaway with William while in Australia. Leaving Prince George with his nanny for the evening, the couple stayed at an exclusive retreat during their night off near Ayers Rock. Longtitude 131 is situated at the entrance to Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park with 15 canvas-topped tents spaced around the red dunes. It was said the couple woke up to watch the changing sunset over the rock, a sight of a lifetime for sure.
While the term glamping might sound silly, the amenities are no joke. At Longtitude 131, “all tents feature king beds with superior cotton linens, telephones, wireless internet and the modern essential of climate control.” The couple could lounge in bathrobes while enjoying the in-suite bar and iPad with entertainment. There is even housekeeping and signature turndown service, which beats setting up a tent on the hard ground any day!
