• Wanderland Popup Delivers Glamping for Special Events

    FROM THE Winter 2017 ISSUE

For those of us looking for something a little more glamorous than the traditional tentand-sleeping-bag experience, there is Wanderland Popup

Jason Thomson and Sonia Jozajtis founded their Asbury Park-based business with the motto “rest wild” in mind. Wanderland Popup offers three unique spaces: the Lotus Bell, the Sibley and the Mobile Guest Room. Perhaps the most popular tent, the Lotus Bell is handmade in New Zealand and was named after its Lotus-like shape. 

Wanderland Popup offers a truly unique glamping experience. Guests can expect high-end linens, Peruvian frazadas, Icelandic wool blankets, Turkish kilim pillows and rugs and more within their tents.

Wanderland Popup has created tents for a wide array of events. Just to name a few: backyard guest rooms, palm reading tents on the rooftop of a German biergarten in Asbury Park, bachelor/bachelorette campouts, craft/maker bazaars and dinner parties.

“You have the feel of a hotel room, yet you’re listening to the wind blow and the birds chirp,” says Thomson. “It’s really a connection to nature that you don’t get with a standard hotel. 

Retreats and off-site meetings present wonderful opportunities for groups to collaborate, strategize and build relationships away from their normal office environments. With proper planning, these sessions can be highly effective and even pivotal in setting a new direction. However, off-sites may present some unforeseen challenges that can quickly deflate the energy in the room if not anticipated and addressed in advance.
