While camping may not be for everyone, its less rough version, called glamping, adds a touch of luxury to traditional vacations in tents. It’s a great way to diversify the target group of the camping sites.
Read the article to see why it is a win-win opportunity for holidaymakers and, even more so, for hospitality business owners.
Glamorous camping appeals to people who do not fancy sleeping on the hard ground or pitching a tent in the middle of pouring rain. Glamping site owners offer them a luxury break under canvas where guests can just lie back and enjoy their holiday. It’s not a one-way street. Many glamping sites now enjoy prosperous times both in terms of excellent business turnover and reputation. Below you will find answers to why so many families and couples are ready to pay higher prices for a glamping experience and how the glamping trend can benefit your business.
Glamping is a fun and relaxing thing to do. It’s a modern twist on the traditional camping experience enabling families to recharge their batteries without stressing about packing and unpacking all the camping equipment. For couples who need some romantic, quality time together, glamping provides quiet surroundings, beautiful views and unlimited possibilities to enjoy each other’s company. It’s hard to find a better place to spend time with people you care about. And for anyone who wishes to get inspired and reconnect with nature, glamping balances the mix of rural delights and hotel comforts in the wilderness.
How can you benefit from providing a perfect place to relax?
If you are into hospitality, glamping can be one great business idea to satisfy the needs of various target groups such as: parents, couples, business travellers, digital nomads, and individuals. Also, it will allow you to make profits all year round. Here’s a handy blog post checking if you have what it takes to start.
You are halfway there if you already run a campsite, hotel, holiday park or caravan site. All you need are just a few unique glamping structures to kick off and diversify your current offer.
When people go glamping, they will look for unique natural surroundings, be it the countryside or a sweet retreat. If guests want to head further afield to enjoy the beauty of the local landscape and pure fresh air, all it takes is one step out of their dormitories. But it’s not the only way to appreciate nature. The most advanced glamping structures allow them to enjoy the local scenery from the very interior almost without limits through Panoramic Bay Window or a Skylight Window.
How can you benefit from the natural surroundings of your glamping site?
Your guests will be happy if you provide them with easy access to nature. Which also entails choosing the right type of structure. Invest in eco-friendly glamping tents with large windows overlooking the landscape and solar ventilation systems. Install them on wooden platforms for a 100% nature-friendly approach, and don’t be surprised to see your glamping spots booked out to the last one.
The thing with glamping is that it lets people forget about their daily grind by introducing hands-on hotel amenities to maximize guests’ comfort. Many glamping accommodations are equipped with wood-burning stoves, curtains, lamps, rugs, comfy beds and elegant decor. The best bit is that the prices for one night are reasonable. The luxury and experience are worth every penny. Still, the glamping sites usually stick to affordable prices relative to the offered amenities.
Also, glamping resorts are not totally unplugged in case visitors need their everyday tech, e.g. Wi-Fi network for guests on a workcation.
How to estimate the price of a glamping structure?
Companies selling glamping structures (e.g. yurts, tents, domes) strive to make the entire purchase and assembly process comfortable and easy for aspiring glamping site owners. Most of the time, you can set it up on your own to avoid additional costs. It will take you just a couple of hours with the help of 2-3 people.
