Blog Part 4 of 5 Reasons why Exclusive Tents is right for you.

Blog Part 4 of 5 Reasons why Exclusive Tents is right for you.

Its true… No destination is off limits when you have an Exclusive Tent.  A few details that should never be forgotten when designing a luxury resort are that ‘privacy' and 'views' are two of the most important features to individuals seeking an experience and looking to escape the ‘real world’ for a few days. We all know that when purchasing a home or business property that location is huge. One resort that perfectly combined the environment along with our designs to reach the ultimate secluded yet glamorous getaway is Minaret Station in New Zealand.

Location,Location,Location: Your tented retreat deep in the jagged peaks of the Southern Alps above Lake Wanaka is nothing short of an adventure from the beginning. Helicopter is the only way to and from the resort as well as your only glimpse to some of the most scenic parts of the South Island. "We want our guests to share all of the aspects of the Southern Alps that meant so much to us growing up in this special environment,” Matt (the director of tourism for the station) says. "Whether that be the change in the pure mountain breezes, waking up along with local wildlife, or soaking in the sounds of the nearby river entering the boulder-strewn gorge on its way down to the lake. In these tented suites, you experience the magic of the high country.” The largest perk in having an Exclusive Tent is that much like camping you feel well connected to, and are able to become one with the surroundings, instead of feeling isolated and secluded while inside your room.

Whether you want a private island paradise or your own tree top retreat in the jungle, Exclusive Tents International can make your great idea a reality. ‘The world is our canvas’ and raising the bar in what is possible is our specialty.

Exclusive Tent's withstanding the test of time.

Happy July!

As a consumer living in the 21st century it seems that we're constantly bombarded by fast paced marketing gimmicks, and sold over priced products that are designed quickly and inexpensively to be out of date or unusable with in a few years. Too often companies are taking this 'fast food' approach and are more concerned with the quantity showing complete disregard for the quality of there product. Here at Exclusive Tents, we take a more wholesome approach focusing on quality, durability, and customer satisfaction. We believe in giving you what you pay for.
Currently we have clients that have had their tents standing for 17+ years. One question that is often asked is, what kind of wear and tear is common amongst our tents? Exclusive Tents unique designs are created in such a way that you will never have to completely replace the entire tent at once(except in the rare case of a natural disaster of course). If you find a component on the tent that needs replacing, you're able to remove the individual piece and replace it with ease at a very low cost.
Whether your thinking about establishing a 5 star resort or wish to create an eco friendly structure at your families favorite vacation spot, we want to provide you with trust and comfort in knowing that your perfect structure will be around for many years to come.
