Eco-Tourism Catered to the Millennial Crowd
In order to draw millennial travellers and visitors, a beautifully designed place that is “Insta-worthy” is a prerequisite and the team at GLAMZ pays careful attention to that detail, using their previous experience as event planners to ensure the place is purposefully set up to look stunning in photos. Choosing domes and tents in white gives off a minimalist look, accentuated by quirky furnishings, props and colours - all of which imbue the place with a young, urban vibe. One can expect to find colourful hammocks, bean bags, inflatables and wicker chairs as part of their decor, making each corner of GLAMZ a perfect photo backdrop.
Driving Eco-Tourism with Luxury Camping
“A lot of the younger generation don’t really want to book hotels anymore because hotel rooms can be expensive. This is a generation who is adventurous; they go after things that are new and experiential. Like, sleeping under the stars in nature or enjoying a campfire. And this is what we’re all about at GLAMZ - a modern day camping experience.” Darren Lee, Chief Operations Officer, GLAMZ
