Nestled in lush trees on the border of Kruger National Park, Ngala Treehouse offers a memorable way to experience Africa’s wilderness. The solar-powered multilevel construction is entirely off the grid, but it provides all the luxury amenities you’d find in a five-star villa. Its best feature is the sleep-out viewing platform with a retractable screen that’s perfect for alfresco dining, stargazing, and observing wildlife, including the Big Five (don’t worry, a thorn security fence surrounds the house, and guests are only a phone call away from their dedicated tree house attendant).

Overlooking a mile of pristine Pacific coastline, Playa Viva is an eco-luxury destination with 18 rooms and six new bamboo tree houses suspended in the air among palm trees.

Playa Viva became an instant sensation when it launched its original oceanfront Jet Treehouse. Sitting six feet in the air, it features a king-size bed, private bathroom, lounge area with a hammock, and unobstructed ocean vistas.

Conceived by Scandinavia’s leading architects, Treehotel‘s eight treetop rooms are architectural gems cocooned deep in the Swedish woods.

Treehotel’s newest room, which opened in June, is the Biosphere by Danish design firm Bjarke Ingels Group (BIG). They installed 350 bird nests directly on the room’s facade to help “strengthen the biosphere and natural habitat” of birds in Sweden. The tree room has glass walls, a rooftop terrace with 360-degree views of the forest, and see-through floor paneling.

When one of England’s most renowned country hotels, Chewton Glen, was looking to modernize its guest experience and add a few more family-friendly options to its accommodation offerings, it reached out to award-winning design studio Blue Forest.

So, Blue Forest designed the tree houses to look like floating lily pads peeking through the lush forest. Each has a natural, curved shape and comes with a spacious balcony overlooking the woods and scenic Chewton Bunny valley. The accommodations are also furnished with a hot tub and plenty of seating. Inside, locally sourced woods and materials ensure the structures blend in with their surroundings. Wood-burning fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, kitchenettes, king-size beds, and marble bathrooms remind guests that, despite the rugged surroundings, they are still in one of England’s most prestigious hotels.
