Nature Meets Modern Luxury: 3 Breathtaking Glamping Sites in Bukidnon to Visit All Year Round
Bukidnon is known as a thrill-seeker’s destination. To enjoy the beautiful views of this landlocked province, such as Kiokong White Rock Wall, you might need to do a Vertical Bivouac–cliff camping. To reach that part of the ledge where you will spend the night, it might take you two to three hours of a slow but steady climb.
Of course, an extreme adventure such as this is not for everyone. But it doesn’t mean that you won’t enjoy the beautiful nature of Bukidnon. You can always go for glamping (glamorous camping)–a more luxurious way of camping where you are supplied with luxurious amenities to ensure your immersion with nature is pleasurable.
If you are planning your next trip to Bukidnon with family and friends, here are a few glamping sites in the province worth visiting:
Kumaykay River Farm Dahilayan
If you want to wake up surrounded by greenery and the sound of flowing water, then the Kumaykay River Farm glamping experience is for you. This farm is originally a private dining destination, but soon they have added glamping amenities, increasing the number of tourists visiting the farm.
There are spacious glamping tents on the farm with a brick wall in the middle and a wooden floor reminiscent of a Bahay Kubo flooring. A unique feature of glamping tents in Kumaykay River Farm is the spacious indoor bathroom with a breathtaking view of the lush greens outside.
Tents here connect to an outdoor terrace where family and friends can eat dinner or party together while feasting on the sound of nature. This experience is similar to the everyday experience of residents in Verdana Homes in Laguna, an exclusive subdivision surrounded by verdant spaces.
You can dine, get a massage, bathe in the river, and stroll around the farm during your glamping visit. Glamping rates in Kumaykay River Farm start at PhP 5,000 for four people, including two complimentary breakfasts.
