Started in Lembang, now glamping camp Bandung has expanded to southern Bandung, namely Ciwidey and Pangalengan. Glamping or Glamour Camping has been a trend in recent years when people want to experience sleeping outdoor without the hassle of carrying and setting up a tent. You even get comfortable beds and an ensuite bathroom if you book a large tent. Plus, some glamping is part of a resort equipped with one or two restaurants.

Green Hill Park Ciwidey is located inside TWA (Taman Wisata Alam) Cimanggu in Ciwidey. Taman Wisata Alam is a protected natural park used for conservation and tourism. Hence, most of the accommodations in Green Hill Park nestle inside a pine forest. Since Cimanggu is well known for its hot springs, soaking in the hot spring pool will be one activity you don't want to miss :)
There are several types of accommodation in Green Hill Park. One of them is glamping, where you can choose to book a massive tent that looks more like a barrack. It equips with several mattresses and a private bathroom. Or, you can opt for a smaller one that can accommodate four people.
Spending time here in a group is more fun where you can play paintball war or trekking around the park

Glamping Legok Kondang Lodge is the most luxurious glamping camp Bandung. However, it seems somewhat biased to call them glamping since each room looks more like a cottage than a tent. The only thing that makes them look like a tent is the canvas tent used for the roof. Anyway, the facilities here will definitely spoil you, such as a private bathroom with a bathtub, a private heated infinity pool, floating breakfast, and fireplace on the terrace.
The location of Glamping Legok Kondang Lodge is a bit remote, but it means you can fully relax in peace and quiet with a stunning view of nature. Of course, children still get some fun in the playground or go to strawberry picking in the nearby nursery.

Another glamping camp Bandung near Glamping Legok Kondang Lodge is Bubu Jungle Resort. Bubu is the Sundanese word for a traditional contraption made of bamboo to catch fish. Hence, you will see every cottage has a giant bubu surrounds it, including the camping pod.
Although it is called a camping pod, it looks more like a tiny cottage inside a giant bubu. Its small space can fit in 2 people with a private bathroom, wifi, cable tv, and bluetooth speaker.
As a resort, Bubu Jungle Resort offers plenty of facilities, such as swimming pools, floating breakfast, jacuzzi, bonfire, and barbecue. Plus, you can book an outbound program, paintball, or ATV.

Ciwidey Valley Resort used to be a good glamping camp in southern Bandung. It has several types of accommodation, and one of them is glamping. You can choose between a small tent that looks like a tepee (an Indian tent) or the big one. This resort has a heated swimming pool that resembles a small waterpark. Children can play in the playground and a small labyrinth in the middle of the resort. It also has an aviary, but it's dirty without any special bird inside.
Over the years, this resort slacks on maintenance. Many guests complained about the hygiene and cleanliness of the resort. Plus, the swimming pool is often too crowded since it also opens to the public.

Pineus Tilu Riverside Camping is the latest glamping camp Bandung. The location of this glamping is inside the Rahong pine forest, Pangalengan. Nine big tents nestle beneath the canopy of pine trees on the banks of the Palayangan river.
The tents will not be damp because every tent stands on top of a wooden platform. Every platform is sufficient for one big tent and a dining area facing the river. Each tent has a divider that separates the tent into a bedroom and a living room. The capacity of each tent is up to six people. Electricity, communal bathrooms equipped with warm water, and barbecue sets are facilities you will get when you spend a night in Pineus Tilu. Plus, the cell phone signal from the major providers (Telkomsel, XL, etc.) is quite strong.
Don't forget to bring some food for dinner, since Pineus Tilu only provides breakfast!
Inside the 4.5 hectares of Rahong forest, there are six areas for tourism. Paintball, flying fox, rafting, tubing, fun games, offroad are some activities you can join here. Other places of interest nearby are Situ Cileunca, Wayang Windu Panenjoan, and Malabar tea plantation.
You see, glamping is a very loose term. Glamour Camping often means you will not sleep in a tent! Most likely, you will get a modified cottage with canvas tents as its roof and sometimes walls. Therefore, make sure you do a quick check to make sure the glamping camp Bandung you like is up to your expectation :)
Finally, the idea of glamping is to experience the outdoors. No matter how clean the camping ground is, it is prone to bugs and such. So, you'd better bring some mosquito repellent and bugs spray. Some guests suggest using sticky straws to catch flies.
