Posted on: July 14th, 2022

Are you looking for something distinctive to add that special touch to your outdoor space? Whether it’s a resort, a water park, a theme park or a restaurant, a palapa umbrella will add elegance to any outdoor space. It’s an effortlessly chic solution.

Exploring The Possibilities of Palapas

The word palapa has a tropical vibe, which is certainly appropriate. After all, a palapa thatch is designed for warm, humid nights when you want to make the most of any breeze that blows your way. Traditionally, palapa thatch is often found on a beach. Some larger versions feature a tiki hut sitting area with a palapa roof. But a quick way to enjoy a transformation of any space is with a palapa umbrella. They are stylish, tropical umbrellas draped in lush thatch. The variations make the design possibilities of palapas practically endless.

Enjoying the Benefits Of Palapa Umbrellas

Palapa Umbrellas are a simple way to add character, comfort, and shade to a residential or commercial space.  Whether it’s the patio of a restaurant or hotel, the deck of a pool or a private residence, palapa thatch has so many benefits.

  • Cooling power: Palapa thatch umbrellas increase comfort by cooling the space beneath them. When hot air rises, it’s able to escape through the umbrella. Add that effect to the shade and the cooling breeze, and you’ll enjoy temperatures as much as 10 degrees cooler below the umbrella.
