I’ve never been big on camping on account of having to sleep on the ground in a dewy tent that turns into an incubator come sunrise.
However, a couple weeks ago in Mexico, I landed at Serenity Luxury Eco Camp by Experience Hotels at Xpu-Ha Beach and had my first ever Glamping experience. Tents the size of cabins, King size beds with pillow tops, spa baths on the deck and properly heated showers.
This place is actually one of the coolest resorts I’ve gotten to stay at. While it’s fully equipped as a resort, it still offers a unique ‘outdoor’ experience that 100% feels like an escape from the city. The grounds are decked out with Balinese artifacts and designed based on the original African Glamping concept (Yes, apparently Glamping started in Africa – news to me).
The camp is also just a 5-minute stroll to Xpu-Ha beach, a local hot spot lined with outdoor bars and restaurants on the sand. You can lay in the sun drinking Margs until your heart’s desire. They’ll also deliver lunch to your chair, so obviously I ate shrimp tacos and guacamole every day. I should also add that for breakfast they do a dish that’s basically nachos with an egg on top, which is my very definition of a breakfast of champions.
So if you’re not Bear Grylls but you’re down for some outdoorsy stuff, Serenity Eco Camp has your name on it.
