In recent years there’s been a growing trend for hotels that really immerse us in nature. Take for example the six senses spas that often feature natural mineral rich pools and waterfalls.

Another emerging trend is the tree house hotel. What better way to immerse yourself in nature than to sleep in the treetops, surrounded by wildlife?

The problem is, a lot of these hotels are a bit on the pricey side, meaning many of us simply can’t afford such luxury. Luckily, there are some choices that won’t set you back too much. Five of the best, costing between $100-200 a night, are featured on this map of the best tree house hotels.

Here’s a closer look at the hotels that made the list.

Treehouse Cottages

Situated in deepest darkest Arkansas near the tiny town of Eureka springs, Treehouse Cottages offer a number of bespoke treetop residences for a very reasonable price.
Every treehouse comes with its own hot tub, kitchenette and private bathroom, and of course undisturbed views of the beautiful surrounding Arkansas woodland.

Skyhouse Retreat

Situated about a five-hour drive south of Perth, Skyhouse Retreat is set in the beautiful coastline woods of Western Australia just minutes away from gorgeous sandy beaches.

It’s been specially designed with floor to ceiling glass walls, allowing you to spy on the teeming wildlife. Expect to see ospreys flocking to their nests and little possums clambering up and down the nearby trees.

Bangkok Tree House

Just a few miles out from the busy city, Bangkok Tree House is the perfect place to relax and recharge your batteries after the hustle and bustle of downtown.

This is about as close to nature as you can get. The tree house hotel is only accessible by foot or boat, and there are some options that allow you to sleep directly under the stars.

Ariau Amazon Towers

That’s Amazon as in the rainforest, not the website! Guests at Ariau Amazon Towers can access four miles of treetop walkways to explore the world’s largest forest.

The accommodation is built high up in the canopy in a huge complex of treehouse apartments. With 280 rooms elevated between 10-20m off the ground, this really is the ultimate treehouse.

Sanya Nanshan Treehouse Resort

This quirky treehouse resort is situated on the tropical Chinese island of Hainan. The rooms are nestled in a coastline forest of tamarind trees, giving beautiful views out to the South China Sea.
The treehouse sleeps 16 to 20 people in 7 separate spaces on 3 levels. It’s pretty basic living, but with a beautiful tropical island to explore, why would you want to stay inside?
