Glamping in India!

 

In Rajasthan, India, Aman-i-Khás, a camp of 10 canopied tents, is perched on the edge of Rajasthan's Ranthambore National Park - India's sanctuary for wildlife and natural beauty.

The air-conditioned ‘tents’ have soaring six-metre-high canopies, elegant interiors, the most luxurious marble bath tubs and custom-made furniture, these tents are seriously divine – Glamping is the only word to describe them!

Gorgeous soft cotton curtains divide the beautiful space into sleeping/bathing/lounging zones. And the hot tip is that tent number one is the most private as it’s set the furthest away from the main camp! Fall asleep in your king bed, listening to the calls of the wildlife.

The Dining Tent cooks traditional Rajasthani cuisine, inspired by the royal kitchens of the Mughal emperors, with most meals created using vegetables and herbs grown in the camp's own organic garden. Lit by flickering candles at night, the Dining Tent has one large communal table and several smaller settings, but dinner is just as often served outside beside the roaring fire.

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

The pool is a sight to be seen, a sparkling oasis in the middle of the wilderness, a place for relaxation and rejuvenation or just an afternoon spent on a sun lounger. And once you are feeling refreshed pop over to the Lounge Tent where there is a wide selection of novels, magazines, games, and music or the Spa Tent, where Massages and treatments are available.

 
Aman-i-Khás x Dot + Pop
 

The fireplace is the camp's focal point, a large open plan and equally stunning space which is surrounded by cushioned banquettes for a relaxing evening taking in the stars, with a cocktail of course… afternoon G&Ts and post-dinner whiskies are poured in the Dining Tent and served around the fireplace each night.

Travel Tuesday | Bush - Shacky

 
Shacky
 

Shacky - simple tiny houses with all the comforts of home but none of the stress. Designed for a truly unique getaway experience, Shacky helps you discover the hidden gems of Australia.

These tiny houses are typically homes that range in size between 10 and 40 square metres. Beyond the literal, it's the concept of downsizing to live more simply and to appreciate the important things in life.

We love the idea of taking a break and staying in a tiny house, downsizing and stripping the foundation of a home or accommodation down to the bare basics, allowing you to live simply and appreciate what's most important. 

Shackys have been designed to maximise comfort, and encourage interactions between the guest and the environment. Whether with a loved one or just yourself, a Shacky stay offers a true getaway like no other.

Today we have featured Shacky, The Olive Grove, in Victoria's High Country, just a 2 hour drive from Melbourne CBD. Nestled within a beautiful olive grove, wake up to streaks of golden sun filtering through the trees. Explore picturesque hills, say hello to curious sheep and most of all, take time to relax, recharge and go back to basics.
