SHORT-STAY, HOLIDAY RENTAL AND RETREAT SUCCESS

Welcome to the world of extraordinary outdoor accommodation, glamping and retreats for small business owners

Glamping Consultant Sarah Riley Highlights a “Tourism Turnaround”

I’ve been immersed in hospitality services, glamping and marketing for over 20 years previously jointly-managing a 5* boutique hospitality business. Offering coaching, private consultancy and business advice, I hope to inspire other people to achieve their dreams of a successful, unique holiday rental. 

I’m deeply passionate about the industry and the great outdoors. Despite working hard spinning the two companies I have founded; Inspired Camping and Inspired Courses, as a family we are most at home in the great outdoors and love to escape to the wilderness, foraging for wild foods and hidden treasures when we can! 

Why is ‘glamping’ so perfectly placed in the holiday market?

The #TourismTurnaround is about the recovery of the holiday industry after the Covid-19 pandemic. Not surprisingly, due to the current global situation and associated travel restrictions, the “Staycation’ trend has gradually increased in popularity throughout 2020....

Hideout Bali: A Unique Bamboo Glamping Business

Secluded in the mountains of the Gunung Agung volcano, Bali, the breathtaking all-bamboo, eco-friendly Hideout is found. 

The Hideout family consists of six individual, architecturally wondrous houses, each remotely hidden in the jungle, surrounded by luscious rice fields, flowing rivers and tropical greenery. 

 

Where did Hideout come from? 

The first Hideout (Hideout Bali) was born in 2014 from the love two people had, not only for each other but for nature and it’s beauty. Their dream of creating an ecologically sound bamboo hideaway was made into a reality by teams of bamboo workers from local Balinese villages.

During its conception, the two lived on site for months, with no running water or electricity, just solely embracing the sense of adventure, authenticity and “off the grid” experiences that Hideout is all about.

In the following years, Hideout grew, with the addition of five new hideaways, each just as striking and oozing...

COVID-19, The Tourism Industry, Unique Holiday Rentals And Glamping Businesses

With the constantly changing COVID-19 situation around the world, it is clear that we are collectively facing one of our biggest challenges. A challenge that will result in many of us making changes to our way of life and the way our businesses operate.

The added challenge is that we are all at different points of understanding and experiencing this situation.

Some have had direct experience of it while others think the worldwide response is unnecessarily generating panic.

The Economic Impact And Planning For A Turnaround
