By now, we may have already familiarized ourselves with the entire concept of glamping based on what we have read and watched online. The challenge now is to find a perfect place to experience it. Good thing Davao City is just a flight away.
Misty Heights in Marilog District, Davao City offers you a one-of-a-kind experience of what is glamping and how it should be enjoyed. Glamping is a portmanteau of glamourous and camping, hence the word glamping. This camping site in the highlands of Davao City treats you with glamourous camping facilities in an area blessed with panoramic, unobstructed view of the region’s crisp beauty of the mountains.
Their geodesic dome (geodome) is all that you need for a perfect staycation with nature and loved ones. Geodomes are modern glamping structures that offer enough space and comfort for your next outdoor getaway. It’s indeed a modern way of enjoying glamping and Misty Heights just opened their first geodome to the public.
You will find yourself amazed at how cozy the camping experience is. Their geodome comes with 1 queen-size bed and 2 double size beds on its loft. Imagine comfortably lying on the bed at night while staring at the night sky and the stars through the dome’s glass windows – that’s just heavenly! It is also furnished with an AC unit, mini-fridge, coffeemaker, microwave oven and a toilet to make your stay as comfortable as it should be.
Though the place has 3-persons tents and cabins too, they will only serve as an overflow for the geodome and bamboo houses’ guests to rent, if need be.
Sounds too much for a camping, right? But no, this is the entire thought of glamping and everyone is welcome here especially if we want a break from everything that’s bugging us – work, family problems, anxieties. The place is oozing with the kind of peace and calmness we need to temporarily isolate ourselves from the rest of the world.
One thing that you will have to consider when visiting Misty Heights is that there is no WiFi or phone signal in the area. You will have to walk back to the main road (approximately 100 meters) to possibly get a network signal. But isn’t it the whole point why we go to camping places like this?
You won’t be disappointed with the view that you will get from dusk to dawn. Bask yourself in the scenes of hills from afar cloaked with green vegetation, clouds hovering just above it, and the entire wide blue skies. At night, you can set up a bonfire and spend the night with your loved ones.
The place has also a pavilion where you can eat your meal. Misty Heights serves delicious food ranging from your favorite breakfast classics to mouth-watering house specialties. Alcoholic beverages are not allowed. When the place isn’t busy with the campers, they can accommodate people for breakfast and lunch and has very limited slots in observance of the minimum health protocols.
This glamping camp strictly imposes the “no booking, no entry” policy.
