Last year we highlighted some of our favorite luxury treehouses around the world. This year, we scoured the globe and found eight more treehouses you can stay in for a night of pretending you’re a kid again.
Located in the remote reaches of the Okavango Delta, but just close enough to camp for you to feel comfortable, Kanana’s sleep out tree house is the best way to experience the vast African night sky. It overlooks a waterhole that is home to hippo, crocodile, and varied bird life during the annual rains. In the dry season, once the water recedes, the plains host a variety of game day and night.
Chewton Glen’s six treehouses sit suspended 35 feet above ground on 130 acres near New Forest National Park and there is nothing rustic about these. Every bit as luxurious as its five-star hotel just minutes away, the six treehouses offer a secluded, homey feel. Take in those canopy views with floor-to-ceiling windows and spacious outdoor terraces complete with hot tubs.
Post Ranch Inn, California
Post Ranch Inn’s treehouses are freestanding structures built on stilts nine feet off the ground. Built of wood, steel, stone, and glass, they are rustic but luxurious with king-sized beds, wood-burning fireplaces, and private decks, set in the coastal wilds of Big Sur, California.
Patagonia Camp, Torres del Paine, Chile
Patagonia Camp added to their lineup of yurts with two suspended up in the trees by stilts. These treehouse yurts include a private bathroom and terrace with central heating and incredible views of Lake Toro and the Paine Massif.
Tongabezi’s secluded tree house is expansive and luxurious. Set among the branches of three Ebony trees overlooking the Zambezi River, the tree house’s facade is completely open to take in those stunning views of the river. Its king-sized bed is draped in mosquito netting and the bathroom’s claw foot tub is perfectly positioned to take in the views while you soak.
Resorts World Sentosa, Singapore
The two TreeTop Lofts at Resorts World Sentosa are perched almost 40 feet above ground, tucked in a canopy of native trees. This nature-lover’s hideaway is the picture of luxury and exclusivity, with spacious rooms, en-suite bathrooms, and private outdoor terraces. They even come with their own personalized butler service.
The 36 treehouse suites at Silky Oaks Lodge offer some of the best views of the Mossman River and rainforest you’ll find. Set on the edge of the Daintree National Park, the lodge draws much of its inspiration from the surrounding area, the oldest living rainforest. The treehouse accommodations are cozy and built with local timber. When you aren’t soaking up nature from your treehouse suite, you can venture into Daintree National Park for hiking, go mountain biking to Mossman Gorge, or swim, snorkel, or kayak in the river in front of the lodge.
Inspired by the 2008 documentary “The Tree Lover,” Treehotel is a village of treehouses in the middle of the Swedish woods. Opened in 2010, each of the Treehotel’s seven rooms was designed by different leading Scandinavian architects. Each room is free-standing, suspended 13 – 20 feet off the ground, surrounded by miles and forest. They were built without chopping down any of the trees on the site too, making this Treehotel one seriously cool, eco-conscious getaway.
