But usually, families and groups come here to sit comfortably back and relax. In this case, they can rent picnic huts, cottages, or sheds in the place or avail of hammocks for a cozier afternoon.

There comes the point when we can’t certainly decide where to go this summer. Whether we want to stay in and enjoy a luxury hotel’s amenities or camp out and relish the great outdoors. In these uncertainties is where glamping flourishes.

What exactly do you get when you go glamping? Practically the same thing as camping, only with luxury hotel amenities like carpet matting décor, tea, and fairy lights, cozy mattresses in satin sheets, adorned with fluffy pillows and woolen blankets. 8 Suites also offers complimentary coffee, tea, and smores, entrance to their infinity spa, and breakfast for couples or groups. Counter to the disconnection that comes with camping, you get free Wi-Fi in 8 Suites! 8 Suites also accepts bookings for other particular purposes.

About Viktor Austria
Viktor would love to receive an extra hour a day as a Christmas gift. That way, he won’t have to struggle over splitting his 24 hours among making brand copies and campaigns, writing children’s stories, going to the gym, commuting around Taguig, and feeding his two overweight cats. He hates the hustle culture, that’s why he’s thankful for friends who have time to spare on weekends, preferably over spicy ramen and cold bottles of beer.
