Glamping combines glamourous and camping to create a modern take on this traditional holiday. The experience is all about exuding luxury, creating a truly five-star holiday while allowing you to get closer to nature.

The key elements of Khao Sok glamping include:

Luxurious accommodation

The defining point of any glamping holiday is luxurious accommodation. From spacious safari tents to cosy yurts and lavish treehouses, it’s all about creating an amazing experience for guests. For a truly memorable holiday, the accommodation will be equipped with the highest-quality amenities such as plush bedding, elegant furnishings, private bathrooms, and electricity.

Amenities and services

Of course, it’s not just about the accommodation. To create a genuine five-star luxury outdoor experience glamping also needs to include a wide range of amenities and services to elevate the holiday. This includes gourmet dining options, spa treatments, and recreational activities such as wildlife safaris, adventures, and guided tours.

Scenic locations

Alongside luxurious accommodation, these holidays are backdropped by stunning scenery, and fewer locations in the world are better than glamping in Khao Sok. With exceptional views, abundant wildlife, and opportunities for outdoor recreation it is a wonderful destination for everyone.

Customised experiences

Luxury camping is all about creating experiences tailored to the guest. Glamping will allow holidaymakers to customise their adventure travel to their unique needs and preferences. Whether it’s a romantic getaway, family adventure, or solo retreat, you will be able to create your dream holiday.

Attention to detail

What sets glamping apart above all, though, is the attention to detail. These providers will go above and beyond to ensure that every aspect of the trip is exceptional and helps you create memories that will last a lifetime.

With these five key areas, it should be no surprise that luxury camping in Thailand is on the rise. Recent surveys found that glamping currently makes up 5% of Thailand’s tourism revenue, with the industry expected to be worth THB 3.2 billion by next year.

What makes Khao Sok glamping so special?

Established in 1980, Khao Sok is one of the most spectacular national parks in the world. Just a few hours north of Phuket, the park covers an astounding 739 square kilometres and features rainforests, lakes, limestone cliffs and waterfalls. This sprawling region also has incredible biodiversity, being home to a vast number of wildlife and plants.

It is for these reasons that it is one of the most popular regions for adventure travel in Thailand, giving guests the chance to get up close and personal with the natural world. As the first luxury tented camp in Thailand, opening the facility at the turn of the century, Elephant Hills has become synonymous with luxury.

Basing the concept on the proven African-style safari tents, Khao Sok glamping provides guests with an exceptional holiday experience. Each spacious tent has large, comfortable beds and linen and is finished with elegant wooden floors. Each tent also has electricity powered by sustainable solar and wind energy and a fully equipped ensuite with hot and cold water.

Despite all that luxury, guests will still feel like they are in the midst of nature, only separated from the spectacular scenery by canvas and mosquito nets. This creates an amazing experience, allowing you to not only see but also hear the fascinating sounds of the rainforest.

Completing the experience, each tent is equipped with handcrafted furniture, underlining the exceptional attention to detail that makes Khao Sok glamping a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. Tents also come in a range of sizes, including singles, doubles, twins, triples, and family spaces, ensuring everyone can find the perfect accommodation type for their dream trip.

While no expense has been spared when creating the Khao Sok glamping sites, these facilities have been developed to be as sustainable as possible. Each site is committed to minimising its impact on the environment, utilising renewable energy sources, supporting local communities, and donating to conservation projects to ensure the region’s natural beauty remains for years to come.

Experiences for the whole family

Five-star accommodation is only part of any Khao Sok glamping experience, as the national park hosts an incredible array of activities and experiences for the whole family. Booking one of the recommended tours is the best way to explore the region, with each trip including accommodation, meals, activities, entry fees, tour guides, and transfers from either Phuket, Krabi, Khao Lak, Surat Thani, Khanom, and Koh Samui.

One of the highlights of any adventure holiday in Thailand is the chance to meet the majestic Asian Elephants that call the region home. During these trips, guests will be able to gain fascinating insight into their lives, prepare meals to feed them, and learn about the comprehensive conservation projects the park is implementing.

Another very popular activity for adventure travellers in Thailand is hiking through the tropical rainforest. The Khao Sok National Park has a number of trekking routes for all ages and abilities, ensuring everyone can witness the breathtaking natural beauty on offer.

For those looking to explore the park from a different perspective, canoeing, kayaking or rafting down the Sok River is an experience you will remember forever. You can even hire someone to do the paddling for you, allowing you to sit back and take in the spectacular scenery that will be all around you. A boat trip on the Cheow Larn Lake is another wonderful water-based activity, allowing you to see the majestic limestone mountains emerging hundreds of metres above the glistening lake.
