World-famous peaks, snug chalets and epic walks in Cradle Mountain.

 

Growing up in Tasmania means I tend to be drawn to Tassie accommodation.. there are just so many beautiful locations, places to stay and wonderful pockets to explore and people need to know about them!

And today it's Peppers Cradle Mountain Lodge - the closest accommodation to the spectacular Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park. Set in the wilderness are 86 private timber cabins, from contemporary Pencil Pine Cabins through to luxurious King Billy Suites. Each provides the modern comforts you would expect and some are appointed with spa baths. The King Billy Suites and Spa Suites have king-sized beds and can accommodate up to three guests utilising an additional roll away bed. There are also family cabins, some with spas, sleeping up to five people that can be booked directly at the Lodge.

Be tempted by the delectable tastes of local Tasmanian cheeses over a glass of wine, have a romantic dinner, take a stroll on one of the 20 walking trails, wander through towering forests, gaze in awe at that trees older than mankind or indulge in a therapeutic massage or sauna.

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.

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.

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.
