since its inception in 2011, international developer luxury frontiers has brought tented ‘glamping’ resorts to beautiful destination across the globe. with the rise in ‘glamorous camping’ and travelers looking for more eco-friendly hotel stays, the san francisco/johannesburg-based firm presents some of its projects, which offer guests the opportunity to become immersed in the great outdoors.

luxury frontiers focuses on building tented architecture resorts that still provide all the necessary amenities a traditional hotel offers. from upmarket tented camps, treetop suites, to light-on-earth building concepts, the firm’s philosophy is to ‘live fully, tread lightly.’

‘glamping is much more than pitching a fancy tent,’ notes luca franco, CEO of luxury frontiers. ‘glamping is booming worldwide and on track to be a $1 billion industry by 2023. people are craving off-the-grid, eco-sensitive travel and the most important lesson we’ve learned is that it’s vital to attach meaningful, authentic experiences to the tent. developers are looking at a wealth of opportunities to attract high-end travelers.’

tents have been designed as permanent, semi-permanent, and fully dismountable structures. to accentuate their tented architecture, luxury frontiers’ projects include memorable amenities such as freestanding bathtubs, outdoor showers and plunge pools, and decks with al fresco lounging areas.

luxury frontiers’ projects span across six continents, and include sites in the USA, zambia and costa rica. most of the tented resorts range from four to 45 units, and about half of those offer at least one multi-bedroom unit. average daily rates (ADRS) tend to range between USD $500-2,000, and on average, resorts with 25 or less units experience double the ADR of larger resorts.
