Bali'€™s Sandat Glamping Tents is among five new property members announced by Secret Retreats on Thursday.

Said to be the first glamorous camping (glamping) resort in Bali, Sandat Glamping Tents is located 5-kilometer away from Ubud and boasts five safari-style luxury tents and three lavish Eco-Lumbung rice barns, adorned with Italian touches and modern comforts including king-size bed, en-suite bathroom and a deck with an infinity pool overlooking forests and the river. Resort staff will know exactly which guestroom requires assistance as each also has its own unique bell or musical instrument with which to catch staff attention.

'€œThe idea of glamping in Bali was an inevitable for us. We were captivated by the island'€™s wild and untouched nature, culture, traditions and the local people'€™s smiles. Here, among lush green forests and paddy fields, golden wheat fields, fiery sunsets and birds that sing in our trees, we always look forward to sharing our slice of heaven," gushed Sandat Glamping Tents owners, Emanuela and Federico Padoan.

Other new properties joining the Secret Retreats community are Noel Rodrigo'€™s Leopard Safaris located in Sri Lanka'€™s Yala and Wilpattu Parks, featuring stylish South African tents; Glenburn Tea Estate in Darjeeling, India, started by a Scottish tea company in 1859; Khwan Beach Resort in Koh Samui, Thailand, which opened just last year; and Luang Say Cruise & Lodge on the Mekong River in northern Laos, said to offer custom-built luxury riverboats that can accommodate up to 40 people each.

'€œWith the addition of Sri Lanka as a new destination in our collection, we now represent properties in every country around Asia. Our goal to gather the 100 best small boutique hotels in Asia is getting closer,'€ said Secret Retreats director Stéphane Junca.

Describing itself as a collection of unique properties, Secret Retreats currently represents a community of 75 properties across 15 Asian countries, ranging from hotels, inns and villas to camps, cruises and restaurants. (kes)(+)
