by | October 26, 2021

While usual beach getaways would lead you to resorts with bahay kubos or fancy houses as your accommodation, these container vans offer a different type of stay if you’re looking for something new.


The Glamp Vans

Managed by one of the country’s pioneering teams in beach glamping, Casa Antonio, The Glamp Vans at Calatagan offers a different kind of accommodation that will let you enjoy the beach to the fullest. Think of a serene beachfront stay with no signal – you’ll be fully immersed in the beauty of the sea and in the company of your family and friends.

Nestled on a fishing village, the beachfront glamping site comprises two 40-feet container vans with different rooms. These vans offer an alternative to the usual beach glamping tents, and they’re made of salvaged driftwood too!
