New openings are kind of our thing. We love a new hotel, restaurant, venue or café opening and bring as many as possible to you. New urban hotels seem to appear almost daily and that makes sense considering the ebb and flow of city life however, when a hotel pop ups in a secluded corner of nature (think: deserts, mountain tops, seaside cliffs), our interest in doubly piqued. Another mild obsession of ours (and yours, we know) is glamping. Gone are the days of hauling your own equipment hundreds of miles into the middle of no where and here are the days of arriving to your destination already set-up and ready for use. Oh yeah, and with real beds and showers to boot.
We got word that a new glampsite was opening near the entrance to Grand Canyon National Park and were instantly intrigued. Imagined by Under Canvas, the brand responsible for putting glamping on the map in a big way, this new Grand Canyon glampsite was going to be bigger than ever with special touches like a welcome tent outfitted by West Elm and a yoga deck. The Venue Report has been long time supporters and fans of Under Canvas and their knack for scouting some of the most beautiful locales in the country for their luxurious camping meets hotel experiences. Moab, Yellowstone and the Glacier National Park are just some of the current outposts.
