Glamping levels vary from the basic to
the very deluxe, says Fife. As an example
of the latter, she mentions one of Colorado
Yurt's installations, Escalante Yurts, a yurt
glamping resort in southwest Utah. The
yurts at this location have full bathrooms,
kitchenettes and luxury furnishing.
Because of its proximity to the Grand
Staircase National Monument and the
surrounding canyon country, the resort
is popular with outdoor adventurers and
families, Fife says, adding that a 20-acre
expansion is planned.

Firelights Camp in Ithaca,
N.Y. (a high-profile glamping
destination), a platform
pitched-wall glamping tent
from Colorado Yurt Company
is constructed from 15-ounce
Sunforger marine boatshrunk
cotton canvas. The tent is under
a fly, which is made of 19-ounce
vinyl laminate on a polyester
substrate with a polyurethane
topcoat. The structure requires
a platform, ridge pole and
outriggers. It can also be
pitched with an internal frame.

tent from Colorado Yurt Company. The structure was

Other terms-such as "experiential
accommodation" and "experiential
travel"-are becoming more entwined
with glamping, says Tom Butterfield,
sales and business development manager
for Eco Structures. Headquartered
in Fremantle, Western Australia, the
company designs, manufactures and
supplies a variety of environmentally
sustainable glamping accommodations.
"[This] is essentially taking you out of
a [hotel room] and transporting you to a
tent that has been placed in the center of a
location you've traveled so far to experience,
all without [stinting] on the luxuries of the
four- or five-star hotel experience," he says,
explaining those concepts.
The company's flagship glamping
product is the Eco Tent. Customers
are able to customize these structures,
which are available in kit form, by
selecting a variety of components and
accessories, like bath-pod en suites, sliding
glass front doors, luxury vinyl flooring
and extended decking. Standard features
include RT12 canvas walls and ceilings,
WPC (wood plastic composite) internal
and external flooring, shade net roof fly,
floor joist and bearers.
The tents, which can serve as
permanent structures and comply with
Australia's highest building code standards
(they're engineered and manufactured to
the maximum cyclonic wind rating for any
structure) are being used in large resort
developments, smaller boutique retreats
and holiday parks, as well as wineries,
adventure camps and even Boy Scouts
of America camps.
DEMAND ACCELERATES
Butterfield says Eco Structures has been
fielding inquiries from the larger hotel
chains, predicting these brands and others
will begin opening up 50- to 100-tent/
room resorts "around the world at an
accelerated pace." Fife says Colorado
Yurt is getting daily inquiries about its
