The reputation of Siquijor, an island province in Central Visayas, is one that is surrounded with mystique. It doesn't help that a 400-year-old balete tree straddles its main highway, often scaring off guests with its fascinating tales of spirits and ghosts. But once you give it a chance, you'll find out that this island also boasts of a tropical paradise that's just waiting to be discovered. The best way to experience it? By pitching a tent along its many white sand beaches; or better yet, by setting up a luxurious bell tent with Glamping Philippines in Solangon Beach, San Juan.
Glamping Philippines soft-opened late in 2017, but its grand launch is scheduled for December 17. It offers a number of accommodation options, including a six-meter classic bell tent, which can accommodate up to six people; extra-large tents, which can fit up to 12 people; and a beachfront dormitory, which has air-conditioned rooms and a shared kitchen.
Campers can cook their own meals at the resort's fully-equipped kitchen complete with spices and utensils. They even have their own stock of freshly caught fish, such as yellow fin and blue fin tuna; as well as hamburgers, sausages, and imported Brazilian tenderloin steak for barbecuing.
All tents have a breathtaking view of the sea perfect for taking photos of the sunset come dusk.
Glamping Philippines is in Solangon Beach, San Juan, Siquijor. For more information, visit Glamping Philippines' website.
