From unique sea voyages to secluded forest retreats, the allure of the great outdoors has beckoned many in recent years, including the glitterati of Hollywood.
This trend, which combines the rustic charm of camping with the luxury and amenities of a five-star hotel, has seen a surge in popularity among the stars.
One of the pioneers in this trend, Celebrity Cruises introduced a first-of-its-kind glamping experience aboard their ships, where guests can enjoy the “Celebrity Glamping” experience on the top deck of the Celebrity Flora and can sleep under the stars in the Galápagos Islands.
This innovative experience offers two luxury cabanas, one fitted for sleeping and the other for al fresco dining. Guests can enjoy a campfire-inspired dinner, curated cocktails, and a naturalist on hand to point out the constellations in the night sky.
“Four star-struck guests per night will be able to book the top deck onboard experience and participate in this one-night-only adventure,” wrote Celebrity Cruises in a press release.
“The reservations include two luxuriously inviting cabanas, one fitted with a double bed for sleeping, and the other for enjoying a mouthwatering, alfresco meal.”
Meanwhile, for those celebrities who prefer their feet on solid ground, Glamping Hub introduces a myriad of luxurious camping options. Their curated collection, tailored for the stars, showcases some of the most opulent glamping sites around the world.
Amenities can include private hot tubs, panoramic views, personal chefs, and more. It’s no wonder that many celebrities, seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of Hollywood, are drawn to these secluded spots.
The appeal of glamping, especially among celebrities, is evident. It offers an escape from the digital world, a chance to reconnect with nature, all while not compromising on the luxury and comfort they’re accustomed to.
For campground, glamping, and RV park owners, the rise of such luxury outdoor experiences among the elite serves as both an inspiration and a guide. The success of ventures like Celebrity Cruises’s “Celebrity Glamping” and Glamping Hub’s curated collections underscores the evolving expectations of today’s travelers.
These ventures highlight the importance of offering unique, immersive, and luxurious experiences that cater to a discerning clientele. By observing the amenities and experiences that attract celebrities – from curated cocktails to personal naturalists – outdoor hospitality businesses can glean insights into the preferences of the modern glamper.
As the world continues to evolve, and as the lines between luxury and rustic blur, it’s clear that glamping is more than just a trend – it’s a lifestyle choice that resonates with many, from Hollywood’s elite to those simply seeking a touch of glamour in their outdoor adventures.
