Glampitect Unveils Middle East’s First Portable Luxury Glamping Pod

Calum MacLeod set up glamping site design consultancy Glampitect nearly three years ago, expanding into the UAE in March 2021.

Since then, the firm has grown, culminating in this latest project in partnership with UAE engineering specialists Rescom.

According to a report, the ground-breaking unit was unveiled at the Dubai Hotel Show.

Manufactured by Glampitect’s emirate factory, the pods are 6.7m x 3.3m as standard, and the air-conditioned units have powder-coated aluminum tiles on the outside, flat-screen TV, and a modern kitchen, giving the feel of home away from home. 

The units are versatile and can be transformed in many ways and can be converted into any type of space, from a home office to a yoga studio or spa room.

The pods are built on a galvanized state chassis which permits them to be moved around and picked up to various places, another appealing feature.

The two Dubai-based companies are convinced that this partnership will contribute to accelerating the growth of glamping across the Middle East.

The pods are ideal for anyone who wants to start a glamping business.

“The transportable luxury pod is just the start for us. The big advantage is that it can be taken out into the desert or hard-to-reach places, so there is a high degree of flexibility,” said MacLeod.

It’s ideal for people looking to set up a glamping site or who have additional space in their house. It is much cheaper than setting up a hotel, and makes a quicker return on investment than a hotel, so will be a major asset for anyone wanting to move into the glamping business,” MacLeod added.

It’s just starting to take off here: compound annual growth rate for the glamping industry is 14.1%, and we’re looking to help accelerate that growth.
