Antigua Travel Guide | Experience Wild Lotus Glamping Beach Camping

Wild Lotus Camp is a luxury campground located at Valley Church Beach on Antigua Caribbean Island. There are very few places in the world that can offer such a unique beach lovers experience. In my travel book Wild Lotus Camp is ranked #1 Best Place to Unplug and “Just Be” by the Caribbean Sea.

The campground has five private tents located on a pristine white sand beach.

Wild Lotus Camp is a small family owned an operated business based in Antigua. The grounds are clean, cared for, and secured. Upon arrival the owners will review the property and accommodations with you, everyone is very friendly and easy to communicate with. 

Each tent on the premises has its own private outdoor shower, and running water sink area. The water is heated using solar power. For a hot water temperature it would be better to shower when the sun is high in the sky. The toilet facilities are located a few feet away (maybe a 1 minute walk) in the pink painted building. 

Just off the beach is a local restaurant and juice bar, also in a building painted pink.  

These boutique tent accommodations are secured with pad locks and the main gates to the parking lot are locked at night. 

Wild Lotus is the perfect place to unplug from the demands of the world and rejuvenate with the simplicities of good universal energy and clean elements.  

It is a life enhancer to mindfully add tranquil moments to our memory bank. During hard mental times of stress, and life tougher times, it is nice to withdraw good vibes from our memories to help us thru tough times.

A way to do this when you visit Wild Lotus Camp is to books a stay with one of the yoga wellness retreat packages. The Yogi Closet hosts an Ayurveda Yoga Wellness Retreat at this wonderful location. Click Link for retreat booking with Wild Lotus Beach Camp

You can also self practice and mentally capture the moment by having a seat in the sand or chair and look out onto the horizon, just breathe into the space.

Slowly and Deeply Inhale. Intentionally take in all the sounds, feels, and smells of the natural elements around you; including  the sound of the ocean waves, the gentle chilly breeze blowing off the sea. Notice the salty-sweet smell and  taste of the air filling your lungs. Feel the soft sand beneath your feet. Capture it all in the senses like a snap shot of being present in this moment.

Slowly Exhale, release all the static noises, and any chronic negative thoughts of the mind. Mindfully blow them out and release them to the sea, to be carried away in the tide.

Admiration of the sunset on the ocean horizon brings awareness to time and being present in the moment. In the blink of an eye the sun is gone, releasing the energy duties of the night shift to the moon. 

Beach Vibes and Nearby Things To Do

When visiting Wild Lotus there are nearby things to do that can easily be arranged by the facility staff. The hotel offers arranged excursions, with the yoga retreats, as well as yoga classes. 

The beach is not typically “packed to capacity” it has visitors that are shuttled down from the other nearby hotels. There are water activities such as jet skiing and chartered cruises that are offered by independent companies. 

SheerRocks restaurant is a dining experience that was highly recommended as a place to eat when visiting Antigua.
