Experience the glamour of camping at the chic tent hotel, La Mangrove, in South Goa.
Looking for an exceptional place for your bestie’s bachelor / bachelorette trip? Have an occasion to celebrate? Need an urban life detox? Simply wish to tick glamping off your bucket list? Whether it’s one or none of the above reasons, you should make a trip to La Mangrove in Goa. It transports you directly into the magical world of natural beauty and serenity.
Nestled in the cosy lap of nature, La Mangrove takes out the roughing out from camping. This beautiful eco-luxury boutique hotel by the river has 4 chic tipis (conical tents made of skin, cloth or canvas on a frame of poles). And they have been tastefully done up and offer you the basic comforts of a glamping vacation.
The maverick couple, Maud (Dutch-German) and Thibault (French), have combined their passion for travel, culture and eco-consciousness to create La Mangrove. While building this stylish campsite, they have used natural materials as much as possible and taken steps to optimize the use of resources.
Staying here lets you get close to nature and be at the heart of an environment-friendly lifestyle. Even if it’s for a few precious days.
The 4 stylish tipis by the river are a sight to behold. What beauties, white on the outside and elegant on the inside. From the 4 tents, two tipis have king size beds and the other two have twin beds or a king size bed. All the tents have their own attached outside bathroom, an open sky shower, sink and eco-toilet. To top it, the river and mangrove view adds an unmistakable charm to your stay.
In addition to the tents, the property has a lounge terrace facing the mangrove. It has an exclusive sitting area where you can unwind on the comfortable lounge beds.
And when hunger strikes, head to the restaurant where you can savour Indian, Tibetan, Asian and Continental cuisines.
