Glamping Hub Beachfront Tree House Rental – Zihuatanejo, Mexico
If you’ve followed this blog for a while, then you already know I’m head over heels for Mexico. It’s such a beautiful country, and I keep discovering new reasons for me to go back asap. For example, I need to try treehouse glamping at this beachfront tree house in Zihuatanejo in the state of Guerrero, called Playa Viva.
Imagine waking up with the view of waves crashing on the shore just metres away from your bed, and read a book on your hammock while perched six feet above the ground. It’s a very Tarzan-like dream, isn’t it? Yet, at the same time guests have all the comforts including a private bathroom, and a shared pool and wi-fi.
Glamping Hub is my go-to site when I look for glamping destinations because there are just so many cool ones, including treehouse rentals! My bucket lists keeps expanding…
We like it because: The resort is committed to sustainability and the restaurant specializes in farm-to-table cuisine, with healthy and organic dishes.

Treehotel – Harads, Sweden
Not your typical tree house resort: the treerooms at Harads are environmentally friendly and styled with groundbreaking designs by some of the best Swedish architects.
My favourite treehouse is the Mirrorcube, where the mirrored walls reflect the surrounding forest and guests are pretty much invisible.
All the treehouse cabins feature combustion toilets and are powered by hydroelectric energy; the property also features a treesauna!
We like it because: Treehotel manages to perfectly mix nature, contemporary design and sustainability, and during the winter you can experience the Northern Lights like nowhere else.
Rates start at $500 per night.

This place is perfect for all of you who like the city, but want an oasis to relax in, and what better choice than a fully sustainable hotel located in “Bangkok green lung“?
