You’re an adult now, so you can do anything you want. You can eat Roll-Ups for breakfast and wear your pyjamas to the supermarket. You can also sleep in a treehouse if you please. Take your pick…
The World’s Best Treehouse Hotels
Arguably Australia's best treehouse accommodation
Silky Oaks Lodge in Tropical North Queensland is home to arguably Australia’s best treehouses. Glass doors open out to the Daintree Rainforest, with verandas perched above the Mossman River. The treehouses aren’t just for sleeping though – the hotel restaurant and bar also sit high in the canopy.
A treehouse accommodation oozing in luxury
Pictures of Keemala speak for themselves – these treehouses ooze luxury. The pod-shaped, ‘birds nest villas’ are perched in the rainforest canopy, overlooking Kamala Beach. Monsoon showers, outdoor terraces and private lap-pools are all part of the experience.
A unique treehouse experience in Sweden
No two rooms at Treehotel are even remotely similar. Sleeping options include a giant bird’s nest, a UFO, or an ‘invisible’ mirror cube. The standout though is ‘The Seventh Room’, with its netted patio 10 metres above-ground. Eat breakfast up here among the pine trees.
For those wanting a 'treehotel' vibe
In southern Chile there is a treehouse that is almost too epic to describe. Less of a ‘treehouse’ and more of a ‘treehotel’, Nothofagus is so big that there’s even an indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi. Spend the night here before hitting the nearby ski slopes.
An affordable treehouse experience
This Malaysian resort is home to some of the more affordable treehouses in this list, while still maintaining an eco/luxe vibe. No two Treetop Chalets at Japamala Resort are the same, but all have balconies looking out to the South China Sea. Extras like homemade snacks and aromatherapy turndown services complete the experience.
An eco-certified treehouse experience on NZ's South Island
A deer breeding farm on NZ’s South Island is home to the eco-certified Hapuku Lodge. All of the luxury treehouses have been built from sustainable and salvaged timbers. The onsite, award-winning restaurant sources 75% of its ingredients from local farms.
