Cyprus parliament is getting ready to vote in legislation on glamping which is where stunning nature meets modern luxury but also provisions stipulating the operation of hostels by law.
This is what Philenews reported on Wednesday, citing a draft bill which was debated before the House Commerce Committee on Tuesday, in the presence of deputy minister for tourism Savvas Perdios.
The bill is expected to go before the plenum soon.
Despite the presence of several hostels in the holiday island, there is no legal framework regarding their operation.
Glamping blends the words “glamorous” and “camping”, and describes a style of camping with amenities and, in some cases, resort-style services not usually associated with “traditional” camping.
Glamping has become particularly popular with todays’ tourists seeking the luxuries of hotel accommodation alongside “the escapism and adventure recreation of camping”.
