We love her vision and passion in life so we asked her to write something about her Xperience with us and how she came up with this beautiful idea. Sally-Ann Intuition, a deep sense of knowing, a feeling, a core wisdom, call it what you like – I had it when I first came across this unique property I am about to tell you about. I have named her Eagle Dream Lodge, knowing that this would be a place of [...]

Luxury Glamping Victoria? Our test team put it to the test and recently went glamping on Phillip Island. And they were so excited, that they wanted to blog about it. But before you read this, keep in mind that our test team's first language is Dutch. We didn't want to correct the text since it has a lot of character and it didn't feel right to "alter" their story. Roméé Hi, I’m Romee from the test team. We went a few weeks ago to Phillip Island. At the beginning, we had to drive almost 1,5 hour. During the trip, I [...]
Introducing the newest product range from GlamXperience- the Glamtainer. This really is an ‘out of the box’ approach to shipping container conversions and I’m absolutely in love with them! Here’s why… I’ve heard people refer to shipping container conversion as the ugly industrial brother of the man cave. It's strong, durable.

To me, sleeping under canvas is sleeping in harmony with all the elements of nature, giving you the ultimate feeling of freedom and well being. My first real glamping experience was in Portugal. I was asked by the owners of five Luxury Safari Tents, to style these for them with an authentic French bath and hotel quality finishing's. I love my job :-) Once I arrived I was really excited about the idyllic spot. The campsite was completely remote with no WIFI or phone connection. We had to climb up a one kilometer hill in order to get one dash reception [...]
The world we live in is changing quickly. People are searching for new experiences and trends. Tourism worldwide is highly dependent on these megatrends and it has to find answers to these challenges to keep up with consumer demand. How can the concept of glamping take part in these numerous global challenges? If the camping industry wants to attract the so called ‘Millenniums’ generation they will have to focus to the core values of camping but with the adjustment in needs for this market. Operate sustainable, emphasize on socializing, exploring the outdoors and tap in to the needs of the [...]

On our final day in The Netherlands the local TV station interviewed us and our business partner Luxe Tenten about our immigration to Australia, which makes a great keepsake for our friends and family to look back on in the future. After a 12 hour flight, 2 days in Singapore and another 7 hour flight, we finally arrived in Melbourne. The first week we had a lot of appointments, and we had to arrange everything for [...]
