Glamping in Thailand

As some of you know, my sister, Bri, lives in Australia, and this year we decided to have our annual get together in Asia. After a lot of research and indecision, we settled on Thailand and decided to spend some time up north in Chiang Mai, followed by a couple of weeks on the island of Koh Samui. While researching where to stay on Koh Samui, we stumbled across a place called Khwan Beach Resort and were immediately obsessed with the fact that they offer glamping, which is basically super posh camping. We decided to make one of their glamorous tents our last abode before heading home, and the following is a photo essay of our first glamping experience! 

The first thing we did was roll up the sides of the tent for that open air experience

I loved showering outside when it rained. There was something magical about getting a man made and natural bath all in one.

Looking back through the gate at our tent. The bowl on the ground by the veranda was filled with water for washing off our sandy feet.

This beautiful pool served as the center of the establishment with all of the tents and villas situated around it.

We spent four days at the Khwan and loved every minute of it. When we left the staff gave us a going away gift and packed us a lovely breakfast to go since we had to leave before regular service hours. They also helped us purchase our return ferry tickets to the mainland to catch our flight home. All in all it was a very successful first glamping experience and I can't wait to do it again! If you have any glamping recommendations, send them my way :)
