"There is absolutely nothing like this," says Peter Mack, founder and CEO of Collective Retreats.

"Just like how over the course of the last 20 years, design hotels reinvigorated and advanced the hotel industry, I believe that in the next 15 to 20 years, experiential hotels will do the same," says Peter Mack, founder and CEO of Collective Retreats, a startup that is attempting to redefine luxury stays in the great outdoors (also known as glamping).
Over the past year, Mack's company has opened five-star retreats in the mountains of Montana, the vineyards of Sonoma, and the ranch lands of Colorado, with four more planned to open by year's end in picturesque places where permanent hotels are not permitted. Peter Mack developed Collective Retreats in response to what he calls the "vanilla-zation" and "McDonalds-zation" of the hotel industry. A 10-year veteran of Starwood, he got the idea for a pop-up hotel business while he was VP of customer experience and innovation at Tough Mudder. Each year, more than 20,000 participants in the run through the mud would venture out to a small city, where $49-a-night motels had jacked up prices to well over $400. Price gouging, combined with an inadequate supply of rooms, irked Mack. "I remember asking myself, 'Why don't we just build our own hotel here out of tents?'" He did, beta testing Collective Retreats with a select group of invite-only guests over the past year before opening booking to the public in March. That same month, the company received an initial seed round of $2.5 million from various investors who sensed an opportunity in catering to travelers' growing desire for offbeat, Instagram-worthy nature vacations. That's the advantage Mack sees, in any case. "It was very clear to me that the whole hotel industry is broken," he says, with a tinge of hyperbole. "We have no intention to own real estate or even buildings," Mack says. "Traditional hotels are very plain and very boring," Mack says, sticking to his theme. While statistics suggest that there is a sizable chunk of consumers who are drawn to off-beat, unique travel accommodations, not everyone shares Peter Mack's doomsday view of traditional hotels. In the coming months, Mack intends to branch out into a whole portfolio of temporary residences, such as luxury airstreams and epic tree houses, some in remote international locations. (Though not at music fests. "It's really easy to throw up some tents at a festival and provide a place to sleep," he sniffs.) In 2018, a total of 10 new retreats of this type will be available to bookers. He'd also love to step outside of the countryside one day and enter cityscapes. "One of my dreams is to have a retreat in Central Park, surrounding Shakespeare in the Park," he says via email after our initial interview. His other long-term plans include "a surf retreat in Costa Rica, or Kauai, for example.
