Tropical jungles, picturesque beaches, and mystical culture - all of this you will find on the Island of Gods, even if you're staying in a regular hotel. But if you're looking for something heartfelt and cozy, like tents, campfires, and guitars, that's available here too. Introducing campings and glampings in Bali.
These two trends in the tourism industry offer an alternative perspective on staying amidst nature with varying degrees of comfort. Glampings, unlike traditional campings where guests are provided with tents and basic amenities, offer unique accommodation options such as stylish tents, canopies, domes, and wooden bungalows. They are usually equipped with all the essentials for a comfortable stay, including comfortable beds, private bathrooms, electricity, hot water, and sometimes even air conditioning and Wi-Fi.
In Bali, you can currently find quite a number of very good glampings and a few camping spots. However, when it comes to camping, you should understand that staying in a tent without air conditioning during the day in Bali can be quite challenging.
Bali Jungle Camping
If you want to have a unique camping experience, in this case, glamping, you should consider trying out Bali Jungle Camping. This environmentally-friendly resort is located in Desa Padangan, Tabanan, a two-hour drive from Kuta. You can also rent cottages there if the intriguing campsites don't suit you. Bali Jungle offers a variety of activities: hiking to Bali's second-highest peak - Mount Batukaru (800m, minimum 2 people), yoga, picnics, Balinese massages, bike rides, and Balinese cooking courses, which include visits to the local market early in the morning. The cost of additional services is around 200,000 IDR. Accommodation prices range from 480,000 to 980,000 IDR per night and include two types of tents: Geo Dome Tent and Parachute Tent. You can make reservations on their website.
Sang Giri- Mountain Glamping Camp
This glamping site is situated in the mountainous region of Jatiluwih's rice terraces, which are recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Guests are offered the opportunity to stay in a camp hidden within a dense tropical forest. You can choose from several types of glamping tents (deluxe and grand deluxe), all of which provide views of the rice terraces and the Jatiluwih mountains.

A camping site with a mesmerizing view of Mount Batur, its caldera, and the lake. You can even enjoy the view without getting out of bed. The place is located approximately two and a half to three hours' drive from Kuta. Upon arrival, you'll need to navigate stairs and pathways, so it's better to arrive during daylight.

The cost of the camp starts from 925,000 Indonesian Rupiah. Interestingly, the camping policy prohibits alcohol. I doubt they'll kick you out if you have a glass of wine, but this point is mentioned on the booking page.

Romantic luxury glamping in Ubud. The cottages have everything you need and even more, such as an outdoor jacuzzi. The camp is located far from noisy areas, providing ample opportunities to enjoy the tranquility and wild nature of this mountainous region in Bali. The tents are more akin to rooms in a five-star hotel, and their cost will indeed remind you of those hotels. One night here comes at a substantial five million Indonesian Rupiah, but satisfied customers and the rating of this glamping site suggest that it's worth it.
Customer review: "I had an amazing weekend in beautiful Ubud. We stayed at the most luxurious tent camp 'KAVNVA,' and it was stunningly romantic and healing. With the best jungle view, and all the staff were very friendly and willing to help, it couldn't have been better. Thank you very much!"
