Recently, treehouse hotels have become very popular to stay in while traveling!
You will find building designs and ideas that range from functional to luxury, sustainable to unique, and affordable to expensive. Some of the properties are built on or hung from trees, however some are even grown from the trees or built directly into a tree. How incredible would it be to come back from your trip and be able to tell people that you slept in a treehouse? The following is a look at some of the best tree house hotels in the world.

This extraordinary treehouse hotel was designed by Japanese architect Kobayahsi Takashi. Believe it or not, it was created with the sole purpose for communication with outer space. How cool is that? You can find it nestled in the treetops of Okinawa. This “plexiglass portal to the universe” is an extremely popular attraction at Japan’s rustic Beach Rock Resort.

The Mirror Cube in Sweden might possibly be the most minimal treehouse in the world. It is a fascinating hide-out amongst the trees that is camouflaged by mirrored walls, which reflect their beautiful surroundings. The base consists of an aluminum frame around the tree trunk and the walls are covered with reflective glass. To prevent birds from flying into the walls they have been covered with an infrared film.

It does not get much better than that!
