Who is Glamping Hub?
Glamping Hub was founded in 2013 and became a fully functional booking platform in 2014. From 2014, we’ve dedicated ourselves to curating the largest collection of unique, nature-based vacation rentals – giving travellers a five-star experience – with the amenities they expect from a hotel, but in the middle of the great outdoors.
Our global, 80-person team is made up of more than 10 different nationalities who help both guests and owners who advertise on Glamping Hub. We work from two offices: one in Seville, Spain, and the other in Denver, Colorado. Each department within Glamping Hub works together in a modern and close-knit working environment, striving towards the common goal of giving our customers a one-of-a-kind glamping getaway.
What types of properties advertise on Glamping Hub?
In over 115 countries, we have 35,000 hand-picked rentals, featuring unbeatable outdoor locations and luxury amenities. Glamping, or glamorous camping, can mean many different things, and our offerings run the gamut. Glamping Hub has everything: from classic glamping accommodation, such as tipis, yurts, tree houses and safari tents, to more traditional rentals, like a woodland cabin or an oceanfront villa.
Who are your travellers?
Our guests are not just looking for a bed to sleep in; our accommodation —and the dedicated hosts that own them— form a part of this unique experience they’re about to embark on. When booking with Glamping Hub, our guests are looking for a place where they can make a meaningful connection, both with nature and the loved ones they decide to travel with. While our guests do sometimes choose glamping as a way to celebrate a special occasion, such as an engagement, an anniversary, or a family reunion, what they truly are looking for is a one-of-a-kind trip that extends beyond the destination they’ve chosen.
