October 9, 2020 OTA News No Comments Email Email

After being at home for an extended period of time, some travellers are no doubt ready for a new adventure! With travel over the summer down by 89% year-on-year(1), travel dreams beg to be revived. Recent research conducted by Booking.com shows that towards the end of 2019, Hong Kongers were dreaming of an active trip outdoors (27%)(2). Even before the pandemic, 52% of Hong Kong travelers were planning to stay in a unique accommodation, like a treehouse, at least once this year.

With a mission to make it easier for everyone to experience the world when it’s safe to do so again, Booking.com has delved into its more than 29 million listings in more than 155,000 destinations around the world to present four incredible tree houses guaranteed to reawaken that childlike sense of adventure and help travelers rediscover nature again in time to come. From sleeping high among the treetops in the Costa Rican rainforest to relaxing at a luxurious retreat in Thailand, there is a tree house to thrill every type of traveler as it becomes safe to travel again.

Under Canvas Glacier, Montana, USA

With tree houses and luxurious safari tents that will appeal to a wide range of travelers, this gorgeous glamping getaway is known for its breathtaking glacier-carved peaks and more than 700 miles (1,126 km) of hiking trails. Surrounded by dramatic vistas and pristine natural beauty, this part of northwestern Montana is still a bit off the beaten track and ideal for those in the mood for an aspirational travel adventure. The campground provides the necessary essentials to ensure an authentic and comfortable experience in the forest, including camp cots, sleeping bags, safari chairs and even lanterns. Just a short drive away, the Hungry Horse Reservoir is a hidden gem, perfect for recreational water activities in the summer or simply to enjoy stunning views of the rugged terrain and the snow-capped peaks to the east in the winter.

Teniqua Treetops, Western Cape, South Africa

Before the pandemic, almost three quarters 73% of global travelers intend to stay in an eco-friendly accommodation at some point in 2020. With that in mind, this eco-friendly tented treetop resort near Seven Passes Road, the oldest mountain pass in South Africa’s Western Cape, is not only sustainable but also quite literally surrounded by greenery. Nestled among 86 acres (35 hectares) of pristine indigenous forest along the Garden Route between Knysna and Sedgefield, the property takes their environmental impact seriously, seeking to minimize their energy usage and impact by employing a number of sustainable practices, including dry compost toilets and by using biodegradable, eco-friendly detergents. These treetop suites make for a relaxing and whimsical road trip pitstop for those exploring South Africa’s iconic Garden Route by car. Stretching from the Western to the Eastern Cape, it’s one of the most scenic coastal routes in the world, with stunning mountain vistas and sparkling lagoons to discover around every scenic turn.

Huilo Huilo Canopy Village, Huilo Huilo, Chile

Nestled in the middle of an eco-reserve in the Patagonia region at the southernmost tip of Chile, the wooden bungalows at this forest escape offer intimate views of the surrounding landscape and an amazing opportunity to observe the area’s unique wildlife in their natural environment. While guests do need to provide their own sleeping bags at this rustic retreat, these beautiful shelters make for a convenient home base for trekking through the majestic peaks, valleys, lakes and rivers the area is known for, including the massive nearby Lake Pirihueico, which is ideal for kayaking and other water sports.

TreeHouse Villas, Ko Yao Noi, Thailand

Surrounded by lush tropical forest, with dramatic cliffs as a backdrop and a nearby private beach, the treehouse villas at this exclusive, adults-only resort on the island of Ko Yao Noi in Thailand are anything but rustic. With a secluded location between the popular destinations of Phuket and Krabi, it’s all about attention to detail and pampering, as each villa comes with its own private plunge pool and exclusive hammock-shaped bathtub. Regardless of whether you want to indulge in a soothing massage, practice your yoga or trek through the surrounding rainforest, at this island escape you can personalize your tree house experience for maximum relaxation and rejuvenation.
