Like camping and sleeping under the stars but need a bit of luxury...make that a lot of luxury?

The Granite Belt has entered a new world of glamping (camping) indulgence with the opening of Alure Boutique Villa’s Luxury Tent.

An Australian first, the tent comes with every convenience you would expect from a five star villa and provides a never imagined camping experience.

The secluded 56 m2 African safari tent is best described as a tented villa. The interior was cleverly designed by Stanthorpe architect Alwin Haagner from Alwin Architects and lavishly decorated by renowned Brisbane designer John Glynn from The Design House.

Imagine a tent with:
  • Fabric draped four poster bed complete with king sized pillow topped ensemble and luxurious bed linen
  • Mood lighting at your fingertips
  • Full kitchen with European appliances including the best in espresso coffee machines with seriously good coffee
  • Full bathroom with an illuminated Hansa Clear Lux Duo shower system, heated towel rails, fluffy towels and every product you would ever need including L'Occitane toiletries and a GHD hair straightener (camping is no longer an excuse for a bad hair day!)
  • Eco fireplace and ducted air-conditioning for perfect climate control
  • Entertainment centre with a 50” plasma flatscreen TV, stereo and iPod dock
  • Laundry facilities with washing machine, iron and ironing board (if you must)
  • Outdoor decks complete with a bbq and entertaining area and a private outdoor spa
  • And even a chandelier!

Respecting the environment and guest comfort it has been insulated, designed and positioned for maximum passive solar efficiency. Rain water is captured and used throughout, with waste water recycled for use on the landscaped gardens.

Located in the stunning high country of the Granite Belt only five minutes from Stanthorpe, Alure’s luxury tented villa is surrounded by spectacular granite rock and natural bush which provides a perfect haven for kangaroos, koalas, birds and other wildlife.

Imagine enveloping yourself in the unique combination of luxury and nature – seeing wildlife from your four poster bed, lounging on the deck with a glass of local award winning wine or soaking up under the Milky Way in the outdoor heated spa – it’s a perfect getaway.

So don’t put up with outdoor bathrooms and camping kitchens, experience Alure's version of camping in style today!
