Treehouse, travel, hotels

You probably wanted a treehouse when you were a kid. Maybe you got one, maybe you didn’t. One way or the other, treehouses remain alluring to most adults—so much so that many hotels all over the world are now offering their guests the chance to sleep high above the ground in luxurious, treehouse-inspired accommodations.

Here are five amazing treehouse hotels that will help you reconnect with nature—all of which were recently opened or remodeled.


Baobab Treehouse at Xigera Safari Lodge | Moremi Game Reserve, Botswana

Imagine sitting 33 feet above the stunning Okavango Delta, watching African wildlife roam by below you.

That’s exactly what you’ll get at the new Baobab Treehouse at Xigeria Safari Lodge in Botswana.

This incredible dwelling, which opened in January, was inspired by a painting of a baobab tree by South African artist Jacobus Hendrik Pierneef. While it’s not actually built into a tree, it’s designed to look like it is, with a spiral staircase twisting through a cylindrical “trunk, streel branches that will gradually rust and blend in with the surrounding foliage, and a canopy that includes a luxurious bedroom, bathroom, and outdoor space.

Treeful Treehouse Sustainable Resort | Nago City, Japan

Treeful Treehouse Sustainable Resort, which is being built by a father-daughter duo in Nago City on Japan’s postcard-worthy Okinawa island, was supposed to be open already, but was unfortunately delayed due the pandemic.

The good news is that it remains on track to open soon—and when it does, it’s going to be something special.

In addition to the standard bedrooms and bathrooms you’d expect, each of these solar-powered treehouses will feature wall-to-wall windows, hammock swings, and even an exercise deck. All of that will be cast against the lush wilderness of one of the most beautiful corners of the Japanese archipelago.

The Treehouses at Lanrick | Perthshire, Scotland

Amid the stunning scenery of central Scotland, not far from Edinburgh and Glasgow, you’ll find The Treehouses at Lanrick.

Each of this resort’s treehouses has its own theme. The Treecreeper, for example, features industrial chic décor, complete with exposed copper piping, corrugated sheet metal, and lots more. The Nuthatch, meanwhile, is more rustic, with a wood stove, a copper bathtub, and a gorgeous terrace.

The resort also features a farm shop, where you can stock up on fresh bread, milk, eggs, butter and more, and it’s all just minutes away from the expansive wilderness of Trossachs National Park.

Løvtag | North Jutland, Denmark

Denmark’s Løvtag recently added three treetop cabins to its roster of accommodations, and they look absolutely beautiful.

Each cabin is built around a living tree, and features a small but fully-outfitted kitchen, a bathroom and outdoor shower, a bedroom, and a rooftop terrace. The area surrounding each cabin, meanwhile, is a pristine Scandinavian wilderness. What could be better than enjoying your money coffee to a chorus of chirping birds, high above the forest floor?

The Mohicans Treehouse Resort | Glenmont, Ohio, U.S.A.

Unlike the other treehouses in on this list, this one will not require U.S. citizens to jump on a plane.

Ohio’s 77-acre Mohicans Treehouse Resort has added several new treehouses to its roster of accommodations during the pandemic, and they look like must-visits.

Each of these new treehouses is unique and features its own extensive list of perks. Our personal favorite? The Silver Bullet: a 31-foot, vintage Airstream trailer hanging 25 feet off the forest floor. It features a bedroom, a bathroom, an outdoor shower, and even a sauna. You might arrive stressed out, but you definitely won’t leave that way.
