I’ve never been big on camping on account of having to sleep on the ground in a dewy tent, which inevitably turns into an incubator come sunrise. That said, I love the outdoors and I’m always down for an adventure, I’m just nursing a mean case of asthma.


A couple weeks ago in Mexico however I landed at Serenity Luxury Eco Camp by Experience Hotels at Xpu-Ha Beach and had my first ever Glamping experience with tents the size of cabins, king size beds with pillow tops and properly heated showers.


This place is actually one of the coolest properties I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. 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).


The camp is 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 the shrimp tacos and guacamole from a horizontal position every day.


While on the topic of food, I would also like to mention one of Serenity’s breakfast dishes that is basically nachos with an egg on top – my very definition of a breakfast of champions. It is so delicious.


So if you’re not Bear Grylls but you’re down for some outdoorsy stuff, check out Serenity Eco Camp, you’ll love the change of pace.
