There’s no feeling quite like the one you’ll get while sitting beneath your natural thatched umbrella, reclining in your bamboo chair, sipping a blended strawberry daiquiri, pina colada, or salted margarita. It’s just one of those rare feelings you get when you do exactly what you want to do – absolutely nothing. It’s the kind of moment we all look forward to, and never forget.

You can order one of our thatched umbrella and palapa kits today and you’ll be surprised by how many more of those special, “nothing”, moments you’ll find.


A palapa, is a fancy word for umbrella, really. It refers to an open-sided dwelling with a thatched roof. It’s similar to a tiki hut with the major difference being that tiki huts have three to four posts while palapas typically have one to two poles in the center - similar to an umbrella.

Palapas go by many names, some of which you may be unfamiliar. We’ve compiled a list for your reference, and entertainment: chichi, island hut, tiki shade, tiki umbrella, tea house, tiki bar, thatch gazebo, chiki hut, chickee hut, thatch hut, Polynesian hut, Hawaiian hut, grass hut, Africa reed hut, grass gazebo, tropical gazebo, Fiji hut, palapa gazebo, tiki shack, palapa hut, Balinese hut, palm hut, makuti hut, bohio, cabana, tropical shade, palapa shade, thatch umbrella, grass umbrella, Mexican umbrella, palm umbrella, Tahiti umbrella, Fiji umbrella, palapa umbrella, and island umbrella.
