Built on stilts among the trees and accessible via a gang plank, each Tree House has two suites, which can be combined if desired. Studio Suites are smallest, but still offer 61 sq m of open-plan floor space, with floor-to-ceiling windows, a king bed, seating area, and a terrace with outdoor hot tub 35 feet above the ground.
Loft Suites sound like a perfect escape for a family with (younger) children, with a galleried upper bunk level overlooking the living room of the suite. Hideaway Suites separate the living area from the bedroom by a covered glass walkway. Combine a Studio and a Loft Suite or a Loft Suite and a Hideaway Suite and you have your very own Private Tree House.
A small kitchenette in each suite and the daily breakfast hamper brought to your door means you can maximize your time high up in the canopy. All the facilities of the main hotel are a short walk or golf buggy ride away.
While we love the idea of hiding away in our own Tree House, we're not sure our bank account would enjoy the experience as much: Studio Suites start from £600-£700 (about $940-$1,100) a night, with a Private Tree House from £1,300-£1,900 (about $2,000-$3,000). Two-night minimum stays apply over weekends. Next to the description of the Tree Houses on its website, the hotel tempts with a 4-for-3 Summer Offer, but clicking through it turns out that Tree Houses are excluded. Rates in a Bronze room are moderately less expensive, starting from £280-£460 (about $440-$720).
