A RENOVATED caravan dubbed "Palm Springs meets Pontins" has opened in the UK – with sequin curtains, neon lights and velvet sofas.
Located in a caravan park in Birchington Vale, the fancy caravan, called Club Jupiter, features three double bedrooms, making it perfect for a group holiday near the seaside.
Inside the caravan is a large living area, with a retro six-seater sofa and modern kitchen which includes a fridge and cooker.
Each of the three bedrooms also has a different theme – The Jungle Room features a small double with bamboo furniture and faux plants, while the Space Disco room has sequin walls, neon signs and a mirrored ceiling.
The Lonely Heart Saloon room has a double bed, with features including cowgirl wallpaper, a neon heart shaped mirror and bright pink ceiling.
The caravan also a shower and toilet, as well as a private outdoor seating area.
Guests at the holiday park can make the most of the heated indoor swimming pool, bar and restaurant, as well as evening entertainment.
Club Jupiter was designed by three women based in Margate – interior stylist Emma Jane Palin, BBC3 presenter Whinnie Williams and travel journalist Anna Hart – who bought the caravan for £24,000, and spent another £12,000 renovating it.
They decided to do it up during lockdown, when most of their work was put on hold due to Covid, finding bargains including a £10 table on Facebook Marketplace and a kitchen sink found in a skip.
Speaking to The Times, when asked what kind of people they expect to book the caravan, they said: "Basically us. We thought it would be groups of female friends, twenties to mid-thirties, who wanted to get away and spend some time together."
They added: "Caravans are seen as beige and boring and we thought, let’s create something that’s the complete opposite of that and will have people desperate to stay in a caravan."
It is now open for bookings, with stays starting from £200 a night which works out to £33 per person.
