Whenever we hear the word “tipi” we immediately think about those conical homes that are attached to Native American culture. Found in the Great Plains, these homes are perfect for nomads or people who can never settle in one place.
Nowadays many hotels have adapted the design and concept of the tipi and turned it into an accommodation perfect for glamping. These hotels let you mix the great outdoors with the conveniences of modern life such as wifi and a gourmet breakfast. This is why this is a popular vacation choice for many people. Tipi hotels can be found all over the world and are not just limited to the United States. Their prices differ but the experience is still the same: a world-class stay at an exotic location in the privacy of a tipi.
