AllTheRooms and our friends over at Glamping Hub have collaborated to find a list of the best glamping spots in 2019. From the deserts of Morocco to the greenery of New Zealand and beyond, here are the top locations to get back to nature with a little added luxury.
Off the usually beaten path of Oregon destinations, this converted greenhouse rests in a peaceful pasture of the Willamette Valley to the east of the state’s capital Salem. Situated on a large 67-acre organic farm and equestrian facility, guests have free range to explore the many paths on the property. Because this getaway is in a converted greenhouse, the lighting and sound of the rain falling on the many windows is unbeatable. Couples also love the indoor hot tub, perfect for a late night soak on a Valentines Day getaway. For those wanting to get out and explore the Beaver State, there are plenty of opportunities to do so since Portland is only an hour away and some of Oregon’s best beaches an hour and a half.
While inexperienced glampers may hesitate at the word “tent”, this luxurious space on New Zealand’s North Island quickly puts guests at ease. It has everything you could need to be cozy and then some. The wide entrance into the lounge area reveals two couches and a small kitchen, while the bedroom has a queen-sized bed comfortably hosting a couple on a secluded escape. The romance continues outside as folks can snuggle up under blankets by the fire pit and stargaze or switch settings and enjoy the two-person hot tub in the private area behind the tent. While you’re on the North Island, make the most of the incredible scenery with these outdoor experiences.
Truly unique, this little glamping village offers the chance to leave the normal rhythms of life behind and settle into the stillness of the desert. While these tents are only about an hour away from the buzz and activities of Marrakech, guests will feel truly isolated with only their partners, fellow travelers, and sand dunes for company. All accommodations include king-sized beds, a private bathroom, and warm illumination provided by wrought iron lanterns. A cooking staff prepares traditional Moroccan dishes nightly and other staff members can help lead ATV tours of the surrounding desert.
Beachfront. Private island. Quaint cabin. Need we say more? Not only a great place for couples, the cabin’s two bedrooms and stock of board games (yes there’s a TV too but we recommend going full-on rustic) also make it a friendly spot for families with older kids. Guests have access to a private dock, which has kayaks, paddleboards, and a rowboat ready to be taken out on the water. Truly a top glamping destination in Washington.
An award-winning accommodation in the Australian state of Victoria, this glamping site sells itself as a unique way for families with kids to do something different with their vacation. Each bell tent has two separate tents — one is the master bedroom, while the other has two beds for the smaller members of the tribe. They are then joined by a common deck space. The entire family can keep entertained with the many things to do in Melbourne, plus the onsite swimming pool, tennis facility, game room, and outdoor playground.

For those unfamiliar with Slovenia’s beauty, google the name and you’ll most likely find images of a pristine blue lake surrounded by snowcapped peaks and an island with an ornate church. That’s Lake Bled and the backdrop to this glamping pick. These wooden, A-frame tree houses are incredibly stylish and comfortable, and come with hot tubs, views, and cozy beds guests may never want to leave. Those who do want to do some exploring can venture to the aforementioned Lake Bled, Triglav National Park, or the local golf course.
Nestled within a mountainous pine forest and in hiking distance of lakes and the gorgeous shorelines of Southern Portugal’s beaches, this is an ideal glamping spot for budding photographers. The surrounding region of Faro is also one of the most overlooked places in Europe, packed with impressive architectural cities lining the Atlantic Ocean. When you’re ready to leave your tent, make the most of the region with this range of experiences in Southern Portugal.
One of the best spots for glamping in Utah, a state known for their unlimited access to the outdoors and adventure, this collection of tents makes guests feel like they should be roughing it but instead unwind in king-sized beds. Tucked into the striking arid red cliffs of the Utah-Arizona border, glampers are constantly treated to great views — the stars at night tend to be unbeatable with the Milky Way clearly visible. About an hour away is the ever-popular Zion National Park and its legendary hikes Angel’s Landing and The Narrows.
Those looking for a Valentine’s Day escape in Texas should take a peek at this cabin outside of Wimberley. Making both Glamping Hub’s Most Booked Accommodations of 2018 list and AllTheRooms’ choice of Most Romantic Cabins in Texas should be a good indication that this is a quality place to stay. The secluded hot tub under the stars is a good place to start the night by sipping a glass of wine (or two), followed by the comfy bed in sight of a stone fireplace.
