Glamping, in a nutshell, is camping without the hassle of setting up a tent and having basic amenities within your reach—you can even say it's the city people's version of "roughing it out in the wild." If that sounds like something you'd love to do, a visit to St. Jerome's The Hotel is in order. 

This one-of-a-kind hotel offers a luxury glamping experience for the urban-dweller. Strategically situated in the central business district of Melbourne in Australia, The Hotel is located on a rooftop space, outfitted with 21 spacious bell-tents, a sauna, and lots of space covered in grass made to recreate the same casual vibe at a St. Jerome's Laneway festival.

Its top-of-the-line amenities are what makes each stay worth more than just IG-worthy shots. The Hotel works with several homegrown brands to provide guests with the best of what Melbourne has to offer. These brands include Linen House for bedding, Temple Brewing Company for beer at the mini-bar and ASPAR by Aurora Spa for complimentary toiletries, to name a few.

There are three types of glamping tents to choose from: The Lodge, The Luxe and The Luxe Plus. Generally, the main differences between the Lodge and Luxe is that the Luxe offers a double bed option while the Lodge is the premium tent which comes with goodies you can share with your friends. Bringing kids won't be a problem, too—you can keep them preoccupied with bowling or laser tag offered by Strike while you're busy getting a massage. 

Going on a trip to Australia soon? St. Jerome The Hotel is located at Level 3, Melbourne Central Shopping Centre, Melbourne, Victoria. For bookings and reservations, click here. Special packages are also offered for first-time visitors, click here for more details
