Organic Hideaways Pvt Ltd. has opened Eco Glamp at Kanatal in Uttarakhand. Eco Glamp offers a once-in-a-lifetime Glamping experience of living in the outdoors in Geodesic Domes with utmost safety and luxury hospitality amenities. With this opening Eco Glamp also becomes India’s largest Glamping retreat, that is also eco-friendly and sustainable.

Eco Glamp at Kanatal is also the first such hospitality project to get approval under the Uttarakhand Government’s Single Window Clearance System Portal facilitating mechanism for investors. The portal is a medium of information for investors on Government policies, incentive schemes and the availability of infrastructure. Eco Glamp has maintained the ecological balance to restore the environment with erecting Geodesic Domes & Himalayan Safari Tents which are 100% temporary structure offering the best of comforts.

Speaking on the occasion Sanjay Sharma, CEO & Founder, Organic Hideaways Pvt Ltd. said “What we are offering is a completely new experience for all, so be it the leisure traveller, expat community, corporate, inbound, CEO/CXO community, or the honeymoon couple or even small groups looking for novelty or that getaway for once-in-a-lifetime memories with comfort. We have opened 9 luxury units in the 1st phase (out of 17) which are fully insulated to control the harsh chilling weather”.

Glamping… is a portmanteau of the word’s “glamour” and “camping”. It is termed as a point “where stunning nature meets modern luxury,” a way to experience the remote and wild without sacrificing comfort. It is camping’s fancier offshoot. It’s just like sleeping outdoors with upgrades that take the edge off roughing it. Before the pandemic, glamping was already a travel trend on the rise. Glamping getaway is like once-in-a-lifetime memories, comfort, loved ones, and total immersion in nature.

Vipin Mamgain, Founder, Organic Hideaways Pvt Ltd. We are just six hours drive from either Delhi NCR or Chandigarh tri-city and two hours from Rishikesh and the Dehradun Airport. Eco Glamp offers all the amenities that a Luxury Hotel offers. We also have on offer a multicuisine restaurant specialising in local Tehri delectables along with Indian, Chinese, South India, Bakery and Continental Cuisines”.

“Kanatal has been known as an adventure location for long, especially for trekking in the jungle, safari, Sky Cycle / Zip-line and other adventure activities like, Surkanda Devi Temple by Trek / Ropeway or Jet Ski / Speed Boats / Para Sailing in Tehri Lake and its snow peaked winters. With Eco Glamp We just have added another dimension for people to stay here” further continued Sharma.

The growing popularity of glamping appears to be directly proportional to changes in the way we vacation in post pandemic, with wellness tourism, adventure vacations and even corporate retreats making big inroads in the travel and tourism industry, with all three pioneering the glamping.

Kanatal located in Uttarakhand at 2590 Mtr altitude and 75 Kms from Dehradun Airport and 40 Kms from Mussoorie and five hrs drive from Delhi, very scenic setting surrounding by mountains and Jungle, with breath-taking views and scenery. Kanatal starts from Kaudia range and goes up to Saklana Range, still unexplored hence is intact with nature’s beauty.

Sanjay Sharma continued “We will be increasing the overall Domes to —–and have already identified more locations to build these sustainable resorts. We plan to make —-such similar retreats across the length & breath of the country and are seeking more partners to develop the concept further”.

Sanjay Sharma is a Masters in Tourism and a sustainable Tourism Consultant with expertise in Glamping, Aqua & Adventure Parks development.

Glamping industry worldover is projected to grow @10.9% as per CGAR till 2031 to USD 7 billion, and in the last one year it has grown and surpass to USD 3.4 billion from USD 2.3 billion making it a very progressive industry for investors.
