Glamping – ‘glamorous camping’ is a new way of experiencing natural and untamed parts of the world in comfort. Similar to camping there is often no electricity but what makes it special is that you have a comfortable bed and amenities such as running water. If you want to disconnect from the world of technology, the fast pace of life and over-work, Glamping is an experience for you!
You will stay in an open plan cabin with a Queen size bed with comfortable cotton sheets, lots of pillows and extras such as books on Caribbean wild life, binoculars, games if you get bored (which won’t happen) and snorkelling equipment. There is a kitchen attached at the back where we provide everything you need to cook your own meals such as pots, pans, a small cooker, water for cooking and washing up and drinking water.
Barbuda is the perfect place for Glamping because we are a very small island with no mass tourism or huge hotels. We are the complete opposite to our sister island Antigua. Frangipani Glamping is based on the Atlantic side of Barbuda where it is a little more rough and rugged than the Caribbean sea – but great for bird watching, snorkelling, fishing and searching the beach for random treasures!
The Cabana is a 3 minute walk to the beach over one sand dune where you can swim, snorkel, go out in the canoe, go fishing, beach combing or just relax on the beach in our Caribbean beach hut. We provide all this equipment and there is a fish pot (traditionally used by Barbudans to catch fish) that often has a lobster or two in it for you to cook, on one of our open fires with locally produced charcoal, or in your Cabana kitchen.
