Globetrender reports help you understand the changes that are taking place across the travel industry, so you can anticipate what consumers will want in the future, and prepare your business accordingly.

Our qualitative research goes beyond quantitative stats and surveys that can go out of date quickly, to provide richer, more reliable insights into the future of travel.

Innovation is at the root of every trend, so we are always looking at what is new and disruptive. If you aren’t an innovator or an early-adopter of a trend, then you will be behind the curve and missing out on opportunities to flourish.

Aman Camp Sarika, Utah

EXCERPT: Wilderness Hideouts

“Travellers are increasingly searching for true escapism, and it’s looking like glamping will be a key benefactor of that trend. From a value of US$2.07 billion globally in 2018, the glamping market is projected by Verified Market Research to achieve a CAGR of 10.71 per cent from 2019 to 2026, when it will be worth an impressive US$4.6 billion.

“Aman is well placed to pick up some of that windfall with the 2020 launch of Utah’s Camp Sarika, a collection of just ten canvas-topped pavilions occupying a 600-acre site that abuts five national parks. For all the raw, elemental beauty that surrounds it, the camp will still, crucially, offer the exemplary luxury so-called #amanjunkies have come to expect. Think a restaurant, lounge and spa suites, and private plunge pools for each guest tent.

“In Oman, Anantara’s Al Baleed Resort Salalah is making a virtue of the fascinating, diverse landscape that surrounds it to launch its own luxury mobile camping adventure in partnership with Oman Expeditions, which is run by founder and ex-British Royal Marine Sean Nelson.

“Guests will roam from mountains to desert to sea, perhaps setting up camp one night by the base of a towering sand dune with just a swirl of dazzling constellations to admire overhead and everywhere the sound, so seldom experienced, of deep, true silence.”
