Ibaraki CocoHawaii Glamping Resort: Luxury Meets Nature in a Hawaiian Oasis
This time we introduce CocoHawaii Glamping Resort Ibaraki (formerly known as EAST COAST FINEGLAMPING Ibaraki Hitchinaka), which is operated by FINEGLAMPING Co., Ltd.
The company is a company specializing in the management of luxury camping facilities. It was formerly known as Dream Garden Co., Ltd. It is mainly engaged in landscaping garden design and construction. It officially opened in April.
The design concept of CocoHawaii Glamping Resort Ibaraki is to “provide a tropical luxury camping vacation experience closest to Hawaii.”
Many guests’ first reaction upon check-in is, “Is this Hawaii?” When hearing that guests felt comfortable, as if they were at a tropical resort, and were completely satisfied with their stay, we are convinced that our mission is to serve them by Providing a “Hawaiian style luxury camping vacation experience”. CocoHawaii is located in Ibaraki Prefecture, with convenient transportation and easy access from the city center to the resort. At the same time, it can provide you with an extraordinary experience as if you are in Hawaii. Want to spend a relaxing time glamping in harmony with nature?
The project has 6 sets of 6-meter accommodation balls and 4 sets of 4-meter transparent balls.
- Climate challenges:
Precipitation: Ibaraki Prefecture’s climate is a temperate maritime climate, with relatively large annual precipitation. This may impact the speed of construction and routine maintenance, particularly the selection and maintenance of coverings and insulation materials.
Temperature changes: Temperature changes in the area can be large, and it is necessary to ensure that the dome structure and insulation materials can adapt to temperature changes in different seasons to provide visitors with a comfortable accommodation experience.
- Terrain Challenge:
Ground smoothness can be an issue and proper ground preparation is required prior to construction to ensure safety and stability.
As projects aim to provide a close-to-nature camping experience, a balance may need to be found between maintaining the natural terrain and environment while providing necessary amenities.
- Construction and daily maintenance challenges:
Speed of installation: The construction time of the project is 1 month, which may require efficient construction and installation processes to ensure completion on time.
Material Selection: The materials selected needed to be able to withstand Ibaraki Prefecture’s weather conditions while meeting the design concept and visitor comfort needs.
Maintenance of transparent balls: The accumulation of oil and dirt on the transparent parts may affect the visual effect and visitor satisfaction, requiring regular cleaning and maintenance.
Facility Maintenance: Good maintenance is key to ensuring visitor satisfaction and keeping facilities running well. This includes cleaning, repairing, and updating facilities, as well as dealing with any structural or facility issues that may arise.
- Customer Satisfaction and Expectation Management:
Since the design concept of the project is to provide a “Hawaiian-style glamping vacation experience”, it may be necessary to manage customer expectations through design, service, and marketing strategies to ensure that they are satisfied with their vacation experience.
