Glamping Redefined

This high-end luxury safari tented villa, nestled on its own hill site which is named after and home to our 9 hornbill birds, comprises of 10 exclusive tents and a villa attendant station and a pop-up bar (coming soon). Each Tented Villa is set up with luxurious, locally made furniture from sustainable teak forests, and is equipped to function as indoor living - sleeping and bathing areas, fitted with a unique air-conditioner for your extra-large bed, meant to keep you comfortable but not take away your glamping experience, as well as having a separate outdoor shaded lounge area, private swimming pool and a beautifully designed outdoor shower area as well.
