Glamping in the City

by Natasha Wolff | May 23, 2013 12:00 am

Traditional wilderness camping received an up-market facelift with the advent of “glamping” several years ago, but now the trend has made its way to the city. Fifth Avenue hotel AKA[1] has introduced a five-star glamping experience for city-dwellers in their penthouse suite. The “bedroom under the stars” package[2]—located on a 1,000-square-foot terrace – features a plush Queen-sized bed beside a wood-burning fireplace, and amenities like a one-hour couples’ massage, an al fresco dining room from Quality Meats, a plasma-screen TV, a private music performance, a telescope for stargazing, and midnight snacks from Jacques Torres[3] and Veuve Cliquot[4]. The outdoor bedroom experience starts at $1,999 per night and is available Memorial Day through Labor Day.
