AIR BUD

The Air Bud model is a revolutionary polycotton inflatable tent requiring no central pole and using Air Beam technology - it's the smallest version of the Lotus Belle, 3 metres in diameter with standing height in the middle. The porch is included as standard.

The Lotus Air Bud is designed with easy camping and festivals in mind - it should not be pitched on a semi-permanent basis and should be used for a few days' camping here and there. It is not designed for long-term pitching. It comes inside a "wheelie" backpack for easy transport and storage.

The Lotus Air Bud utilises air pole technology which means it has no metal poles. It inflates in less than 5 minutes, is extremely sturdy, durable and you can stand up inside. This is a 2 - 3 person tent, with space for bags and so on, or a palace for one! 

Hari says ... "I think it is my favourite thing I've designed ever yet. So easy to put up and take down, really its the best thing ever when you just want to get home at the end of a rainy weekend. And the water just beads off the canvas like magic, its amazing".

Mobile glamping

We love our Airbud because it’s a proper little glamping tent (head height is important for comfort) yet is perfectly car portable. It goes up really quickly, and we put all the guys to one set of pegs as we don’t camp up mountains in gales. The inner lining is a really nice plus, yes, it really is silky, but what I like most is that it gives the illusion that the tent just stays up; ‘where are the airbeams?’ I think it adds warmth (logically it would) as this morning it was notably colder out than in. We have a roof cover just to keep it ‘clean’; ‘glamping’ sites must use them as they protect tents that are up from spring through autumn from the UV (much as I wear a hat to do the same) but our tent is a weekender so UV is less of sa issue, but bird droppings and soggy leaf fall are. I think our ‘Bud’ will outlast us. I take the roofcover from our 5m classic Lotus Belle (not really portable, more of our garden gin palace) and pitch it using a three metre telescopic awning pole and some spare pegs, it makes a large ‘matching’ living space joining our ‘Bud’. Now that’s really ‘glamping’. The nylon roof covers are pretty cheap and make a great accessory, and once more if it’s just an ‘add on’ for camping trips rather than up all season it’ll last a decade. Hopefully I can upload a photo and give you a clue, it’s our Airbud with the aforesaid 5metre roof cover as our living space. PS the tent, liner, roof covers, pump all fit in the one bag as we don’t take the porch, if we pack carefully…..

Thank you so much for taking the time to review our Airbud Peter - you certainly have a Lotus Belle collection and we love that! Once again, super helpful tips shared and we look forward to hearing many more over the years :) x The Lotus Belle Team

Worth every penny

I bought one of these last year, it felt a bit extravagant at the time, but it has honestly been worth every penny. It is sooooooo easy and quick to put up and light to transport. It's been to festivals, parties, back gardens and camping holidays. I take it anywhere at any opportunity. I love it, and so does everyone who sees it. Thank you!

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave this review - we are so glad your Lotus Belle is serving you so well in your many different spaces :) x The Lotus Belle Team

Extras & Accessories

  • Porches

    Porch / Awnings are a great way to extend your living area out front (and also at the rear of any deluxe model). They make a great place for keeping cooking equipment and storage of wet weather gear.

  • Roof Covers

    Essential if you are pitching under or near trees, they are made from fully machine washable nylon. These are the same shape as the roof of the Lotus Belle and act as a protective shield.

  • Cocoon Linings
