Glamping in Bali Indonesia

What is glamping?

Glamping is a portmanteau of glamour and camping and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping. Glamping has become particularly popular with 21st century tourists seeking the luxuries of hotel accommodation alongside the escapism and adventure recreation of camping.

glamping16Glamping – A fusion of glamour and camping – emerged internationally and came across the Atlantic over the last decade. Both independent properties and global hospitality brands have capitalized on an elevated demand for travelers who want to experience the positive aspects of camping without the “uncomfortable” negatives. Glamping pivots on a high level of service that focuses on the complete comfort of the guests. The amenities found at glamping destinations far exceed anything recreational campers’ experience

glamping2One proof point for how much glamping is growing as a distinct category of tourism is the search volume for the keyword “glamping.”  Just a few years ago, online consumers were rarely doing searches for “glamping.”  In fact, “glamping” wasn’t even officially a word until 2006.  Today, several million searches are done every year, and is ranked number one on the search results for this popular keyword.
