Mahal (/mɛˈɦɛl/), meaning “a mansion or a palace”, derives from the Urdu and Persian word mahal, deriving from the Arabic word mahall which in turn is derived from hall ‘stopping place, abode’.

The Lotus Mahal, the ultimate boutique experience. The Lotus Mahal will redefine luxury camping. It is like nothing else on the market, and Portobello Tents is, at the time of writing, the only company in the UK with one in rental stock.

Using three half shells of the current Lotus V.I.P, and one almighty peak in the middle, space in the Mahal tops some 60 square metres!

Not only can it be divided into private bedrooms with a central living room and dressing room, but it can also be hired as an open plan structure, utilising one Lotus as an alcove for DJ and dance floor, one for a bar, and the other for a lounge space. This versatility makes it an all round solution for anyone looking for something truly different for their wedding, event or party.
