Hoteliers are moving away from the traditional hotel experience and opting for something new: glamour in camping, AKA “glamping.” A rise in novelty, one of a kind tents has piqued the interests of many travelers. This type of accommodation does not come cheap, sometimes up to $5k a tent, but it lures in guests to areas such as Costa Rica or Thailand, giving a unique and memorable vacation to the traveler.
Not only do guests receive a tailored experience, but hoteliers are generating more money – up to 40% more in revenues compared to the traditional brick and mortar hotel. Construction costs are also as much as 50% lower. (Bloomberg, 10.16.18)
