Taking the rough out of camping

Showers, clean loos, starlit gigs and wellness weekends. Being outdoorsy is literally no sweat these days!

It’s been a long week. You can’t wait to get out, unplug, and look at the sky without 50 highrises (and 20 cranes) in the way. You want one of those breaks where it’s just you, fireflies, a campfire and some barbecue.

But what you don’t want is sleeping on stony ground, wrestling with a tent and going without a bath. And you certainly don’t want to return on Monday with muscles aching from trying an adventure sport.

Relax. You’re not lazy, and you’re certainly not alone. As more Mumbaikars get bored with cookie-cutter resorts (buffet dinners, crowds, filthy pool – who can blame you?) but don’t want full-on adventure, a new way to get away is emerging.

Camp companies are planning quick, cushy holidays to let you get close to nature, without roughing it out. They’ve got clean bathrooms, sea-facing tents, live gigs and cookouts. And if you still want adventure, there’s that too.
