Channel your childhood with these magical tree house hotels

Jun 05, 2017

They were the traditional childhood hideouts, where private clubs formed and secret handshakes were created, where secret stashes were hidden and friendships became more important than family. The treehouse has been capturing children’s imaginations for decades and if you were lucky enough to have grown up with one yourself, or were friends with someone who did, then these tree house hotels are going to bring back some fond memories. And don’t worry, there aren’t any “No Girls Allowed” signs in front of any of these ones.

1. Keemala, Thailand

Inspired by the Rung Nok (Nest) Clan who reveled in an opulent lifestyle, the 8 Bird’s Nest Pool Villas offer some sea, rainforest and resort views and include an expansive bathroom with monsoon shower and a stand-alone bathtub with a view. The villa size is 185m² including pool and outdoor sun deck.

The Birds Nest Villa was named after the rung-nok clan, or nest clan, a group of musicians, artists and actors who were thought to be superior to others and were able to predict the future. The luxury hotel is set in the trees and does have a luxury nest-like quality, but it’s definitely not your average backyard treehouse.

Set on the edge of the Ayung River in Bali is a community of 18 homes that have been hand-constructed of bamboo. It is a thriving community of people who live permanently on-site but there is also the option to rent one of these magical houses for your own holiday.

Without the distractions of television, Wi-Fi and other forms of technology, you’re really going to be transported back in time and remember simpler days when imagination was the key to entertainment. Sit and watch the birds flutter by in this Daintree Rainforest tree house.
