For centuries Kings, Queens, Princes and Sultans have always had the rich and exotic tradition of living and sleeping under canvas in exquisite luxury. Our philosophy is to revive the romanticism and magic of staying beneath the sky.
Each of the 225 spacious bell tent bedrooms at The Grand Folly Hotel are styled and equipped with all the facilities you’d expect of a hotel room, it just happens to be under canvas.
All rooms have been styled for comfort and luxury, each including a seating area, proper beds with quality, comfortable mattresses, deluxe duvets, crisp fresh linen, soft towels, bedside tables, lights, blankets, clothes hanging space with complimentary dressing gown(s), luxury toiletries.
Our spacious rooms may be beneath the stars but guests can still expect all the services and facilities of a luxury boutique hotel such as concierge, room service, housekeeping and (if requested) laundry services.
