Anyone can stay in a luxury hotel during a vacation, but only the most creative (and those who aren’t afraid of heights) tap into their inner child for a unique travel experience in a luxe tree house hotel. From the jungles of Asia to the East Coast woodlands, tree house hotels give you the rare opportunity to pass up cookie-cutter resorts for a travel experience that’s distinctive and exceptional. So hop on your private jet today and experience one of these amazing treetop masterpieces.
Treehotel | Harads, Sweden
The Treehotel is where “imagination becomes reality.” Built by leading Swedish architects in the small town of Harads, the tree house accommodations are like nothing you’d ever expect. The elevated suites look like a bird’s nest, a red farmhouse, UFO and building blocks. The most epic suite is the Mirrorcube. It has a mirrored exterior that reflects its natural surroundings and uses special technology that prevents avian accidents. Access to your tree house depends on the suite that you book and may come in the form of a bridge, ramp or escalator. (http://www.treehotel.se/)
The Aviary at the Wheatleigh Hotel | Lenox, MA
There is no better way to see the fall colors than from the Aviary suite at the luxury Wheatleigh Hotel in Massachusetts. The two-story tree house in the Berkshire Mountains is a former aviary with a ground-floor entrance. Its opulent features include a limestone and glass wet room with an antique soaking tub, BeoVision entertainment system, circular staircase, 360 degrees of windows and a private terrace.

Tree House Suite at the Tree House Lodge | Limón, Costa Rica
Charter a private jet to Costa Rica’s Caribbean coast, and you’ll find the Tree House Lodge and its 10-acre beachfront property within the Gandoca-Manzanillo Wildlife Refuge. The two-level Tree House suite is built from fallen trees and offers eco-friendly solar heating. The shower is built around the twisted roots of a gigantic century-old Sangrillo tree. Tour the rainforest during your downtime or sit still on the veranda and watch nature come to life before your eyes. If you’re lucky, you may see a curious sloth slowly peeking in on you.

Tsala Treetop Lodge | Plettenberg Bay, South Africa
Looking over South Africa’s Tsitsikamma Forest is the high-design glass-and-stone Treetop Lodge with 10 private tree house suites. Each accommodation offers a log fireplace, private deck, floor-to-ceiling windows and an infinity-edge pool that looks out over the treetops. If you need something a bit bigger, consider a luxury Treetop Villa with outdoor and indoor showers, private deck, infinity-edge pool and the haute amenities that you expect from a five-star accommodation.

Tranquil Resort | Wayanad, Kerala, India
You’ll find the Tranquil Resort on a 400-acre private estate in the Kerala rainforest that also serves as a working vanilla and coffee plantation—imagine the exotic, intoxicating scents. The 500-square-foot tree houses with private verandas are built around the flowering trunks of Royal Poinciana that bloom throughout the accommodation. The larger, 1,080-square-foot villas sit 35 feet off the ground using stilts, are kid-friendly and offer two verandas, two bathrooms and furniture made from coffee wood.
