Here's a Sneak Peek of Domescape: The First Dome Glamping Site in the Philippines!

There are days when you want to “rough it” and be immersed in nature without sacrificing every day luxuries like a comfortable bed or a clean bathroom. For such a day, glamping—the term coined for glamorous camping—is the answer. Gone are the days when you have to pitch your own tent and start a fire from scratch; all you have to do today is scan through the host of getaway options available and pick one that appeals most to you.

And if dome glamping is something you have been dying to try, worry not because it has arrived in the Philippines! Domescape, the first-ever geodesic dome glamping site in the country, was established last March and is NOW OPEN to the public! The expansive site in Nasugbu, Batangas sits on a 1.5-hectare private property surrounded by lush foliage. Originally the owners’ retreat house where they host friends’ get-togethers and family reunions, Domescape is sharing their space this summer in Airbnb for travelers seeking a unique glamping experience! (If you don't have Airbnb yet, you can sign up here to get PhP1,600 travel credits, which you can use to book Domescape!)

Whether you’re a group of friends or a family looking to enjoy the outdoors without sacrificing the comforts you’ve been accustomed to, Domescape is the perfect hideaway where you can unplug for a while and get in touch in nature. Less than 3 hours away from Manila (and an hour way from Tagaytay), the secluded glamping site offers luxurious geodesic dome tents with individual swimming pools for travelers looking for a piece of wilderness and little bit of pampering too.

Each dome is spacious (6 meters diameter, 3 meters height) and is equipped with comfortable beds, a mini refrigerator, coffee-making equipment, a microwave, and a lounge area offering a view of the verdant nature outside. The domes have different configurations—the one we stayed in had an adjoining bathroom and cooking/dining area, but other tents have the bathroom and the kitchen inside. With its size, the dome can comfortably accommodate up to 6 persons. And yes, I know you’re waiting for this: they have air-conditioning, LOL!

The proprietors thoughtfully created the domes with a chic, calming, and contemporary design dominated by wood, whites, and blacks. I loved the exquisite details, including the pieces made from salvaged trunks or branches of trees. It’s so stylish and beautiful that I just fell in love at first sight. I loved the sense of harmony with nature that the room offers despite being a little modern. A few steps away, and you can share space with dragonflies, birds, and frogs—alongside music from the wilderness.

The swimming pool is all-natural, with water sourced from the nearby stream—it was clean, incredibly refreshing, and free of the irritating smell, feel, and taste of chemicals. There’s a small planted area that doubles as a natural filtration system. I have never been to anything like it and I love it!

Guests can cook and eat in the adjoining kitchen/dining area—as of the moment, Domescape doesn’t have a restaurant yet so those who wish to stay may bring their own food. I recommend preparing marinated meats and then just grilling them on site. There’s a convenience store (7 Eleven) about 10 minutes away from the glamping site for stuff you might need—like snacks, sauces, tube ice, and booze. (Insider tip: they have samgyeopsal grill—see if you can rent it or possibly arrange a meal for your group.)

(Sorry for the super ugly food photos. I was so excited to eat, HAHAHA. Make sure you buy some lomi while in Batangas! Okay?)

The bathroom is fitted with a washbasin, a toilet with bidet, and a shower, and amenities like shampoo, conditioner, lotion, and body wash are provided. Towels are also available in the room.

I love the fact that the tents have no TVs and that the mobile signal comes and goes. It gave me a chance to disconnect for a bit and simply enjoy the things around me: our incredible room, the relaxing pool, the feel of the sun on my skin, the coolness of the water, and the fresh Batangas air. At night, they even start a bonfire where you can sit around, drink, and make s’mores. I truly had a great bonding time with my brother and my longtime friends—something I rarely have in today’s cyberspace-obsessed world!

If you’re looking for a break from the usual beach resort and you want to experience something new this summer, let Domescape bring you a little closer to nature alongside a lavish space you can briefly call your own. Get your much-needed sense of seclusion as you make new memories with friends and family to take back home.
