Awesome Glamping in Margaret River

Let’s go glamping!

I love the idea of camping, but not everyone in the family would agree. Glamping, however, is a compromise. Technically, we are still camping close to nature. The glamorous part is that our camping tent is furnished with beds, ensuite bathroom, and kitchenette.  Now, who wouldn’t say no to glamorous camping?

We chanced upon Olio Bello Lakeside Glamping along our Margaret River road trip and decided to stay overnight.

Olio Bello Lakeside Glamping offers modern luxury outdoor accommodations in the heart of Margaret River. There are a total of 6 bungalows nestled right beside a lake within an olive plantation. There is also an alfresco cafe which opens from 11.30am till 4.30pm.

Our bungalow was one of the closest to the lake with an extended deck. In case you are expecting loch ness, it is nothing grand. It still exudes a sort of beauty and serenity like what a retreat should be.

We were first taken away by the beautiful interior deco of our bungalow, unexpectedly. As the website mentioned “safari-style bungalows”, we were expecting exotic animal prints decorated all over. It was, however, not the case. Rather than say safari-style, it was more of a rustic style.

The kitchenette was minimally equipped with an electric kettle, a microwave, mini-fridge, and necessary tableware.  The furnishings seemed almost brand new; hardly any signs of wear and tear.

Overall, it was an enjoyable experience. We truly disconnected from technology and embraced nature. There were no TV and WiFi. We enjoyed taking walks among the thousands of olive trees that surrounded us. We watched the sunset, played board games, and munched some snacks as we cozied up by the fireplace.

This is our first try at glamping. I’m afraid it has already set a very high standard for any future glamping trips to come.

Life has taught me to cherish every moment, and I capture memories with my iPhone. Amidst my busy lifestyle, I enjoy going on holidays with my family and binge on anime now and then.
