Fusing the fun of camping and the serenity of connecting with nature with the luxury of a hotel stay, this is one experience not too be missed.

Each tent will boast plush mattresses (available in king and single sizes), quality bed linen, bamboo furniture Armadillo & Co rugs, solar lighting, Biology Skin toiletries and a host of extra creature comforts.

And if you’re feeling peckish, this secluded gem will also host a pop-up version of Three Blue Ducks. Although the restaurant menu hasn’t been revealed yet, you can be rest assured it will be lip-smackingly good.

“There’s something really exciting about cooking a large cut of meat or freshly caught fish and inviting guests to interact and be part of that experience,” Three Blue Ducks co-owner and head chef Mark LaBrooy told Concrete Playground.

There’s only one catch: The pop-up hotel is only open from November 19 to December 6, so if you want to get a taste of glamping without leaving the CBD, you better book fast.
