Can't decide between a spa retreat or a weekend getaway to the wilderness for your next event? Well, now you won't have to. Terra Glamping is pulling out all the stops this summer so guests and groups can enjoy the outdoors in luxury. Located in Cedar Point overlooking Gardiners Bay, Terra Glamping: East Hampton has everything your group will need to relax in style and enjoy the great outdoors.

The Cedar Point resort will feature 30 fully furnished sleeping tents with one to two queen-sized beds and six-foot decks with seating and views of the water. There will also be two lounge tents with couches, books and board games, a dining tent, bathroom and shower facilities, a fully stocked grilling area, a fire pit and additional outdoor furnishings including hammocks. Every morning at Terra Glamping: East Hampton will begin with a continental breakfast of fresh coffee, fine teas, local pastries, fruit, yogurt and homemade granola. At night, guests can gather around the campfire and enjoy a gourmet s'mores bar.

In addition to the relaxation accommodations, Terra Glamping: East Hampton has guests covered when it comes to activities. From sunrise yoga, live music and movie nights to wellness festivals and farm-to-table dinners with guest chefs, there's something for everyone in your group. Kayaks and stand-up paddle boards will also be available for guests to take out on Gardiners Bay.

Terra Glamping co-founder and CEO Rebecca Martin says Terra Glamping: East Hampton is ideal for groups because they offer an additional 15 event tents, which have two queen beds in them for a total of 65 beds. Beyond the sleeping tents, Terra Glamping: East Hampton has an indoor lounge, outdoor lounge, grilling and dining area, and there are also spaces for breakout sessions. "We can provide full catering options for every meal of the day, including cocktail parties; A/V equipment for corporate retreats and mifi devices to connect to the web; a wide range of entertainment options such as bringing in an astronomer, live music, fire dancers, sunrise yoga instructors or any other entertainment," Martin says.

Martin says Terra Glamping: East Hampton will be an ideal getaway for all kinds of events, from corporate retreats and product launches to weddings, photoshoots and more.

“We have dedicated event staff who are assigned to each client and help facilitate everything from arranging travel to the site to outside camp activities such as boat cruises, kayaking or SUP, and they are onsite during the entire event," she says.

Terra Glamping: East Hampton will be operating throughout summer 2019, beginning May 24 and ending October 27. Though this is the only Terra Glamping location that will be open this summer, previous sites have been in Northern California, the Rockaways in New York City and the Catskills in New York State. Terra Glamping also hosts private events in New York City and beyond.
