Thanksgiving is all about the three F's: food, family, and friends. It's time to throw a new tradition in the mix, however, though this one happens to start with a G. Taking your crew to a glamping site for a unique celebration away from home is the perfect way to start a new tradition this Thanksgiving. Choose an exotic escape out of the country or a cozy cabin getaway in the States—there's no wrong way to add this exciting new element into your annual Turkey Day festivities.

These are five different ways to celebrate Thanksgiving this year in true glamping style, each of which highlights our favorite-of-the-moment that also availability for Thanksgiving 2015!

Beachfront

You can't get any closer to the beach than in these waterfront cabanas in Honduras that extend off the Island of Roatan out over the Caribbean Sea. The Thanksgiving meal may lean more towards seafood than turkey, but you'll soon forget about the holiday's traditional dishes in favor of local cuisine that goes down all too easily after a full day of eco-adventures and water sports.

Exotic

An exotic Thanksgiving vacation takes on a whole new meaning at this two-story luxury cottage with its own private balcony and veranda in the Himalayas of India. With plenty of room for a small family, enjoy having all of your meals prepared for your every day, accommpanied by otherworldly views of the picturesque scenery that surrounds this special glamping site.

Forested

Dwelling underneath the stunning, massive oak trees that oversee the elegant yurts at this glamping property in sunny Southern California, you'll love the contrast of Thanksgiving food with warm, California weather. Prepare to feel pampered by the Turkish cotton robes and organic bath products provided for each and every guest, particularly after the site's daily yoga and meditation classes or a vigorous hike through the property's woodlands.

Mountainous

Montana is home to this picture-perfect, impeccably decorated upscale barn loft, which sits just 15 minutes from Glacier National Park. With views of the mountains of the Swan Range right from the accommodation, you'll have no problem relaxing while gazing upon the area's vistas after preparing the perfect Thanksgiving Day feast in the luxury rental's fully equipped kitchen.

Tropical

alt

Escape down to Mexico for a tropical Thanksgiving right outside of Puerto Vallarta in a luxury, lofted, treetop bungalow, which is both surrounded by gorgeous flora and just three minutes walking from the beach. You'll have perhaps your best post-Thanksgiving meal nap yet, laying back into one of your accommodation's hammocks, easily falling into a deep, warm slumber.
