Countries around the world are beginning to lift their lock-down restrictions due to the corona virus pandemic and many restaurants owners are scrambling to find solutions to remain open, while keeping their staff and customers safe.
This is a real concern that these business owners face as they continue to reopen their business with the thoughts of being shut down again running through the back of their minds. Local governments, town officials, restaurant owners, chefs, servers, and hosts are all searching for the answers.
The desire for a dining experience is never going to go away.
We believe that restaurant owners who will offer dinner in a “Bubble Huts” will achieve a unique experience for their customers while remaining socially responsible.
Dinner in a bubble hut will be a hit with your customers, imagine a romantic dinner for two “Under the Stars”. Or a small get together with your friends and family for a nice evening meal.
Bubble Huts provides a way in which restaurant owners can meet the CDC guidelines, draw attention to their businesses and bring back profits to their dining establishments.
Bubble Huts LLC has also recently partnered up with Phoenix Canopy & Shades LLC, another small business in Arizona. Bringing “new and innovated” products for professionals in the restaurant hospitality industry. They believe that the solutions they’ve come up with will help keep restaurants open and people safe.
If you are considering to start a glamping site business, these are a few things we think you should initially consider.
1. Your Location
Location, location, location is everything! I’m sure you have heard that phrase before. There is a lot of truth in that phrase and when considering to starting a glamping site there are some important questions to ask yourself.
What kind of “glamping” structures will I be using for my guest to sleep in?
How many sites will fit on the space that I have to work with?
What makes my geographic location inviting for guest to travel through and spend the night at?
2. Your Theme
As odd as that may or may not sound to you, having a theme is a sure way to set yourself apart from the rest of the hospitality competition.
What theme reflects me and the experience that I want to offer my guest?
Is this theme something I can reflect in my startup budget?
Does the theme match the kind of guest I’m looking to attract? ( Families with kids, couples, baby boomers or more of the hipster generation.)
3. Nature & Luxury
Glamping is all about experiencing nature while maintaining the comforts of a five-star rated hotel.
How am I going to create a natural outdoorsy experience while incorporating the comforts and luxury of a finer hotel?
4. Network With Other Local Businesses
Networking with other local business that offer deals, activities and amenities that your guest may enjoy
What local business are near me offer things things my guest might like to do?
Is this business one that I can network with the has mutual benefits for both myself and their business?
5. Use Eco-friendly and Organic
Being eco-friendly and using organic is something not only will your guest will enjoy, but our planet will too!
Does my site plans include ways in which I can leave a light footprint on the environment?
Is there any local markets and farms in which I can purchase fresh things for my guest to enjoy?
Are their natural products that my guest can use as toiletries?
Considering these points can be a beneficial start in the beginning stages of your planning. There are a lot of resources online that will guide you through the process as well, do your research.

So you will be sure to find just the right fit on just about any kind of budget.
While Airbnb offers more than just outdoor accommodations for guest to book a stay at, they offer some “Glamping” opportunities as well.
Whether its staying at an off-the-grid farmstay or a highly decorated bell tent, Airbnb isn’t left behind in the “Glamping” trend.
You will find anything from treehouses to bubble tents on Airbnb, as well as, traditional guest rooms, cabins and homes on this platform.
One of the first things to consider prior to booking a stay at a glamping site, is whether you are a adventurous outdoorsy type who doesn’t mind roughing it a bit or are you just wanting to stay in an alternative accommodation with the comforts of a hotel room.
#1What kind of accommodation is it?
To help reassure that you have a pleasant experience glamping, it will be important to have an idea of the kind of structure you will be staying in, especially during different times of the year and in different weather conditions.
And if the weather isn’t cooperative what alternative accommodations will be given to you during your stay or refunds.
Also, ask if the accommodation has air conditioning or heating for those times of year when the outdoor temperatures may be uncomfortable.
#2 Is there a reception area or a host on site?
Some glamping sites have a host on site 24/7 and some don’t, so be sure to find out. And if not, ask them who and how to contact someone in case of an emergency or problem.
And be sure to find out their policies and procedures for check-in or check-out or if you have any special requests or needs.
#3 What kind of safety measures will be in place?
We can’t always predict unfortunate situations and it maybe one of the last things we think of when planning our next vacation or trip but being aware of what is and is not offered onsite can help you better prepare.
Find out if the glamping structure come with its own individual locks or is the whole premisses protected. What is made available to protect any valuables you may have with you.
Whether you are using a fire pit or hot tub each glamping site should have rules and guidelines to follow, along with emergency contact numbers and safety devices on site.
#4 Does the glamping site offer electricity, wifi or cell service?
Not every glamping site is created equal so these are some very important questions to ask. Some sites come fully powered, semi-powered (solar) and some not at all.
So if you need to stay connected it is extremely important to find out what is available to you and what is not.
#5 Is there anything I need to bring or does the glamping site offer it?
You might be surprised at the amenities that are provided at the glamping site. But to be sure I would suggest fully reviewing the site’s description online and asking the questions if need be.
You might even ask what general stores are nearby for you to purchase items that you might need or have forgotten to pack.
#6 Are Pets Allowed?
If you’re wanting to bring a pet with you on your glamping experience, make sure animals are allowed and there’s an area for them to relieve themselves.
If you’re not an animal person, find out whether you can expect to see other people’s pets at the site, and if there’s on- or off- leash policy.
#7 What type of bathroom facilities will I have, private or will I be sharing it with others?
Again, not all glamping sites are created equal! Some glamping sites offer their guest their own bathroom facilities while others may have you sharing with other guest.
You may find that you have a bathroom with running water, toilet and a hot shower, just like a hotel room while others have a more primitive camping style to them.
Doing a little research prior to your glamping trip can go a long ways for sure.
Glamping maybe a buzz word that you may have noticed popping up on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram lately and you may be asking yourself, “what in the world is Glamping and where did this craze ever come from”?
Even though sleeping in unique accommodations may be new to some, people have been sleeping in all kinds of temporary semi-permanent structures such as tents and yurts for hundreds of years.
Some of the earliest records date back to the 1100s, Mongolian tribes would live in yurts during Genghis Khan reign, providing an ideal shelter from strong winds, precipitation, and sun.
They would stay in safari tents, often furnished with antique furniture, real beds, Persian rugs, and luxury bedding. These traveling guest were not so keen on leaving the luxury of their homes and so this style of luxury camp continued. Giving them the experience of spectacular views, nature and all the luxuries to accompany them.
The next date in history was around the 1900s when wealthy Europeans and Americans wanted a taste of luxury on their camping adventures to Africa.
This style of guest accommodations became more and more popular with groups of wealthy people, until nearly a hundred years later, where this trend has gained in popularity not only in the UK but within the USA as well, 2013 is when Glamping was truly established as a full-fledged luxury experience.
Glamping is a perfect blend of nature, luxury, and comfort!
You will find that there are various options to choose from when you decide to go Glamping. Unlike traditional camping, you can choose to sleep in a treehouse atop a large tree in a forest, a romantic gypsy wagon in a green lush field, to a cosmic getaway underneath the vast evening sky in a bubble tent. There are so many options to choose from and booking sites available online to aid you to find the perfect glamping site for your stay.
Unlike traditional camping of popup tents, sleeping bags, and outhouses, glamping offers unique sleeping quarters, with real furnishings and running water available for their guest.
Some glamping site locations offer room service, adventure tours, spa packages and more. The next time you are traveling and looking to try something new and unique, try a Glamping!
The glamping business future is a “bright one” in the USA. Weekender’s and tourists are choosing to stay closer to home rather than booking a trip to a foreign destination.
With the right space, whether it’s large or small, it can be turned into a profitable “glamping site”.
There have been a variety of glamping business models that have been proven to be very successful. And in fact, one of the best-kept secrets in this industry is that some of those models can achieve a return on investment and pay for their set up costs anywhere within the first few months of launching, which is quite a bold claim for any new business.
It offers an exciting new opportunity for entrepreneurs looking for a profitable business to start, which also brings benefits to their lifestyle as they are able to spend more time outside with less stress and more control over their future.
A benefit of starting a Glamping business are many, but specifically, it helps to diversify income generated from a piece of land and can be run alongside an existing business you may have.
And with the use of Airbnb’s popularity and booking platform, it makes a glamping business owners ability to begin booking guests to stay at their site.
Two popular sites that we recommend for business owners to use are Airbnb and the Glamping Hub online booking platform.
New businesses have the tools and knowledge available to them now, allowing them to learn quickly, build confidence, avoid pitfalls and jump ahead of the competition.
I recommend this book The “Ultimate Glamping Business Guide” written by S. Riley.
From my experience of helping new glamping businesses launch into the USA market, I have identified key areas that lead them to success.
One crucial factor is to remain unique and refrain from copying what everyone else is doing. Be original, use your imagination, create your site to be a place where you would want to spend an extended weekend or vacation at.
After all, that’s the beauty of a Glamping business: it comes in many different forms and fits different traveling budgets.
A satisfied customer will keep coming back for more and are more than happy to share with all of their friends and family members about their experience at your glamping business site. And let us not forget the power of social media!

Obviously your startup budget and the style of site you are going to have, will probably be the deciding factor in your decisions. The great news is, no matter your budget there is a bathroom design that can work for you.
Some have elaborate setups, while others go with the more simplistic bathrooms.
There are a few things to consider when setting up a private bathroom within a bubble tent.
How many rooms will your bubble tent have?
How large do I want the bathroom to be?
Will the bathroom includes a toilet, sink/vanity, shower or bathtub?
Will the site have running water and sewage?
Will the bubble tent be placed on decks?
What type of flooring will be in those tents?
For glamping sites without running water or sewage, you can use a composting toilet or dry electric one. And a hand-washing basin with a water dispenser as seen in the photo below.
You can find plenty of ideas and options in creating a private bathroom for your guest that can fit any budget.

Glamping has taken on its very own category in the travel industry. What had started out as a trend in Europe has turned into a full-blown phenomenon that is reaching all across the globe.
Glamping is a combination of the great outdoors and luxury similar to that of a 5-star hotel. There are different habitats and levels of luxury one can actually choose from for their traveling experience.
Glamping allows travelers to connect with nature in their own way, and some Glamping sites are pushing the limits of how these travelers experience natural landscapes in comfort.

Glamping sites range anywhere from a simple canvas tent set up in a wooded forest to an Ice Hotel in Sweden.
There multiple styles and destinations a traveler can choose from and websites to help you find what you are looking for.
