Combining the luxurious comfort of the indoors and the thrill of wilderness, glamping (glamorous camping) allows individuals to immerse themselves in breathtaking landscapes without sacrificing convenience. To stay within unfiltered nature, away from city cacophony, camping is a really sought-after idea for new-age travellers. But the camping culture is now evolving into outdoor staycations with the glamour of luxury, opening an all-new avenue.
A brainchild of 5 travel-enthusiast college buddies, Moonstone Hammock is one of the first premier experiential stays in the country that’s upping the game of glamping amidst lush environs with luxurious amenities. With four properties in Alibaug, Karjat, Pawna, and Jibhi the company has established its presence in the most popular tourist locations near Mumbai and Pune. This glamping travel company has crafted its identity in scenic spots from metropolitan cities by curating all-inclusive itineraries with bonfires, live bands, kayaking in the river, beach cycling and movie nights under starry skies since 2016.
Away from the city lights with views of the lakeside, their experiential stay at Thakursai, Pawna offers to witness glorious sunsets over Tungi Fort. The movie nights on weekdays followed by a bonfire session with a live band, ticks an ‘experience’ for today’s tasteful travellers. With the breezy shores of Alibaug and a site flanked by coconut trees, they’ve introduced glamping by the beach with a poolside café and a library. With sandy toes and happy memories, pictures under the dreamcatcher and fairy lights, the travellers retreat. Moonstone Hammock’s glampsite in Karjat on the banks of river Ulhas beautifully caters the needs of different people — for those who seek solitude or on the contrary, the ones that want to meet new people and bond over bonfire and karaoke nights. From French-style forest cabins to simple on-ground tents, there is something here for everyone.
Moonstone Hammock is reinventing adventure tourism with its unique offerings and commitment to immersive experiences by allowing travellers to reconnect with nature while minimizing their environmental impact. So if you're not sold on the risky, rugged premise of camping, choose galmping instead for a few days of soothing leisure.
