Glamping startup opens office in Dubai

UAE is first stage of global expansion for UK-based Glampitect


18-month-old Edinburgh-based startup Glampitect has set up a Dubai office as its first stop in a global expansion plan that includes Ireland, Australia, and the United States.

The firm helps clients design of glamping - or glamorous camping - sites from conception to completion, including planning permission, building warrant, and site setup.

Dubai facilities will comprise luxury canvas lodge-style units measuring up to 40 sq.m., all with air-conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, and the latest in five-star amenities.

The company believes that the growth of glamping, or eco resorts, as they are called in the Middle East, is massive and demand is outstripping supply. The demand in Dubai is probably greater than anywhere else in the world right now, the company said.
