When it's not possible to find full size, traditional hotels, pop-up hotels could be the solution. The concept is already taking off in Europe where festivals and outdoor events are popular, and now Design Hotels is taking to the beach with the launch of the Papaya Playa Project. The temporary "pop up" camp offers 99 rustic cabanas on a half-mile stretch of Caribbean coastline in Tulum, Mexico. The concept: to gauge interest in luxury travel on a whim.
The pop-up beach cabanas start at $25 a night and goes as high as $675 a night - the difference depends on your preference. The pop-up accommodations range from small cots in a dormitory-like setting to private casitas complete with feather pillows and down blankets.
The resort opened on the Caribbean coastline in Tulum, Mexico, this week and will remain open for six months.
