Happy Monday!

Happy Monday!

We hope that you had a nice relaxing weekend.
This weeks blog is highlighting a past project that we are proud to be apart of: 4 Rivers Eco Lodge

Exclusive Tents International along with the owner of 4 Rivers Floating Lodge, Cambodia, really managed to get the imagination running wild with the creation of the worlds first ever floating lodge.

4 Rivers Floating Lodge is more than your dream retreat. The real beauty is the unique experience this resort offers to clients. Exclusive tent's designs along with the carefully crafted features of the floating deck enables the resort to relocate as they wish. Within a short amount of time the entire resort can be relocated anywhere along the Tatai River in which it resides. The freedom lies within the tents ability to share not only a section of the river with clients, but to offer them an experience unlike any other and to really embrace the river experience in full. Leaving a minimal footprint with no long lasting impressions to the environment is a huge focus of ours as was theirs. This project really opened our eyes to the success it has had in achieving such a delicate feat while also maintaining the luxury that is expected with any other 4 star resort.
Were not here to simply sell you a tent, we're here to imagine, explore, and help you create your vision of "Living Under Canvas." No landscape is off limits and no clients vision is impossible.

Here is a testimonial from our good friend and client Valentin Pawlik, Owner of 4 Rivers resort in Cambodia:
"The resort leaves no footprint on the environment. We can pack up and move it out easily. In about one month we can move the entire resort and you will never know it was here.

An Unforgettable Journey

Happy Thursday!

One of the most important detail’s to remember when developing a glamping retreat is that travelers are now seeking more than just reaching a destination. They are looking for an experience. So you must do your best to not only make the tents as unique as possible. But to also develop the land and the entire layout of the retreat to be an unforgettable journey for your clients from the moment they first pull up to your property. 
We have found that with some strategic and careful planning almost every property has the ability to really capture and highlight the natural surrounds of the area.
Recently, on a trip to evaluate land for a customer in which they intend to develop a large glamping resort, It was a pleasant surprise to find that there were a ton of natural assets already on the property. Including many trees, plants, and large boulders which are all able to be used throughout, to ensure that each tent is designed to submerse itself into the area in the most appealing way possible. Also why exploring the property we found a really cool dried up creek bed, which might be easily overlooked as a key resource to the property to the untrained eye. Yet, since thinking out side the box is what we do, we found that it could be filled with water, then pumped back and forth to create a unique flowing water source throughout the property. This will not only add an awesome ascetic feel, and sound to the land. It will also give water and life to the trees and make the property much greener and more vibrant than it already is.
These natural assets, minor details, and the strategic placement of your tent's are really what create the synergy with the land, and merge your retreat with the surrounding environment. This is what living under canvas is all about.

It's Friday!

It’s Friday!
We hope that each and everyone of you had an awesome week, and are looking forward to a relaxing weekend.
One question that appears to be pretty common amongst our clients as of recent has been. “ Other than purchasing and setting up the tent, what else needs to be considered financially to complete our retreat? “

Yet another for Sir Richard Branson's resort, in Morocco ...

Happy Thursday,
Sir Richard Branson's resort, Kasbah Tamadot, in Morocco's High Atlas Mountains has added yet another tent to their collection.The newest addition is a beautiful wood pole frame Shawu Tent. The installation and set up was completed this past weekend.Now its on to the interior decorating and applying the finishing touches so the tent is ready to host guests.
If you are considering a wood pole framed tent there are a few thoughts to ponder. First of all ascetically wood poles are beautiful. The ceiling liner may also be removed to allow the natural look of the wood frame to be visible and appreciated. With a wood pole framed tent, the canvas is supplied in panels that need to be fitted and trimmed to size on-site and then stapled to the frame. Making the tent more of a permanent structure. Being that if one wants to move the tent for any reason, all the canvas components will be damaged and need to be replaced whereas with a steel frame tent the canvas components can be taken down without causing damage to the fabric. Setting up a wood pole frame tent is also more time consuming than that of a steel frame and does require a skilled carpenter who knows how to work with wood pole structures. If you do like the look of the wood poles yet still want the ability to take down your tent relatively easily you may want to consider going with vertical wood pole beams supporting a steel roof frame.
Whether you choose the steel legs or the wooden poles 'The world is our canvas' and raising the bar in what is possible, is our specialty.
