Glamping is a relatively recent phenomenon in the broader landscape of the tourism industry. The term ‘glamping’ comes from the words ‘glam,’ or ‘glamor,’ and ‘camping.’ That’s just what it is – glamorous camping.
It all started in 2005 in the UK, which should be regarded as the birthplace of glamping; from there, the trend of luxury camping has spread throughout the world. It is particularly popular in America, though Europe has its fair share of exclusive facilities offering this kind of accommodation.
What is glamping all about?
At some point in their lives, many people feel the need to return to nature, but without giving up the civilized comforts and conveniences which they’re accustomed to.
Glamping offers enthusiasts a more reasonable sort of adventure – the kind an ordinary campsite just can’t provide – with a spacious, air-conditioned interior, hardwood floors and plenty of comfortable furnishings. Glamping is about rest and relaxation, not dirt and difficulty. With more and more resorts offering glamping options each year, you certainly don’t have to choose blindly.
Guests who want to get close to nature with glamping also have access to all the usual amenities of a luxury resort; the difference is, they’re surrounded by beautiful nature, and can feel as if on a deserted island, only to go back inside the tent and enjoy all the glamorous amenities of the 21 st century.
Polidomes, a globally recognized manufacturer of spherical tents, has discerned the needs of the demanding customer and introduced the Polidome 18, Polidome 20 and Polidome 30 geodesic domes into its product portfolio. Each of the above offers different spatial conditions which can be equipped with luxurious furnishings and a wide range of amenities. Transparent fronts offer an additional advantage in this case – who wouldn’t enjoy stargazing from a comfortable armchair? Why not!
Glamping opens up incredible possibilities for camping enthusiasts – our Polidomes luxury spherical tents can be set up in the middle of the woods, or atop a skyscraper in the middle of the urban jungle.
Polidomes geodesic tents are excellent barrier against nosy onlookers, insects, and the heat of the sun – things no self-respecting glamper would allow to spoil their comfort.
