Our Twitter follower @TanerKay showed the above pic to us with a very poignant question: “I would love to stay here but how do you go to the bathroom at night?”
We were stumped. All we could manage was a “Whoa”. We’re not used to being so speechless. Then we did some digging on this doozy of a place.
Where is it? Apparently, it’s an adventure resort called Waldseilgarten Hoellschluch located in the Bavaria region near Munich. From May 1st this year, guests can come and get their thrills from climbing trees, doing ropes courses, hiking, and all types of adrenaline-pumping activities before retiring at night to platform beds in the trees (for more sedate types) or the higher “portaledge” tents shown.
Know up front this is not for the dainty sort.

Good news for those adventurous types! Peru's Cusco, one of the most sacred and spiritual places on earth gets a new Luxury Collection property,Libertador Palacio del Inka, right in the heart of the temples and ancient ruins.
Set to open its doors in June of this year, the 203 room renovated hotel will welcome guests that want a little relaxing before they head into the hills or a pampering reward after they worked their dogs on a hiking trip. If the renovated rooms aren't enough, a visit to the Travertine marble and tornillo wood spa can rejuvinate any weary body.
Poised directly across from the Temple of The Sun, the stone building features traditional Peruvian construction techniques built without using any mortar. Don't worry, the building itself is 35 years old, so it has stood the test of time. Showcasing Spanish colonial architecture, the super European center-court will have you feel like your walking back in time and still getting comfy in a modern designed building.
HotelChatter and Jaunted Contributing Editor Claire Duffett is now reporting from Cambodia and this week she is giving us the low-down on the hotel scene. Any questions about accommodations? Send 'em to us and we'll get them answered for ya.
Look closely. Tucked at the bottom of this mountain covered in dense foliage sits an arch of bungalows connected by an outdoor veranda. A few weeks ago, our friends at Jaunted wrote about an escape at the foot of the Cardamom Mountains in Southwest Cambodia called Rainbow Lodge.
Dubbed Yellow, Orange, Red, Green, Indigo, and Blue, the hotel's six bungalows each has a porch, a large bathroom, and clean, smooth tile floors. It's roughing it for those who don't love to rough it. The facilities are brand new (it opened earlier this year) and everything at this eco-friendly lodge runs on solar energy.
We know how hard it can be to get exercise while traveling (especially when hotels charge extra for the fitness center!) In fact, the scale tends to tell the truth about vacation dining. Backroads Travel Company has an answer to this problem: Northern California Winery Biking Tour!
That's right. In addition to sipping wine and living the high life, vacationers will get their exercise with 20-30 mile daily rides through Sonoma Country during this weekend tour of Alexander Valley right in the heart of wine country.
At the end of the day, kick back at the Geyserville Inn, a family-run inn with views of mountains and vineyards and a jacuzzi for sore muscles.
For some people fishing requires a cooler of canned beer, a couple bros, and a local lake or river. Then there are those "Big Tunas"-- heads of mega-corporations, sultans, magnates, and independently wealthy gadabouts-- that won't settle for mediocrity in any corner of their lives.
For those special souls there is a private fishing lodge 185 miles southeast of Anchorage Alaska only accessible by private plane called The Newhalen Lodge.
Ironically, the accommodations themselves are not particularly special. Bedrooms are shared, with wood-paneled walls, shaggy tan carpet and dorm-room linens on the beds. In their defense however, the people that are going there are not ones to sweat decor.
Cubicle Dreamin' is a feature in which we ask the hotel mavens to take some time out of their busy work day, surf the Internet, and tell us what hotel they wish they could beam themselves to right that very second--all on the slave driving companies dime, of course. Oh, like these people aren't surfing aimlessly anyway--at least now their purposeless clicking will be cobbled together into useful hotel stories--we hope. Have a destination hotel you are just dying to leave your cube for? Send the story our way.
In this episode, Hotel Maven Monica Guy returns to Chile. Enjoy.
Split the cubicle in half: I'm dreaming of two superb hotels at opposite ends of the longest, skinniest country in the world - Chile.
Let me gush:
