These Stunning, Sustainable Hotels Are a Design Lover's Dream
Wanderlusters, if you're on the hunt for your next vacation (or honeymoon spot!), look no further than Treehotel, from sustainable tourism company Bee+Hive. The eco-friendly getaways, located in Harads, Sweden, are simply to-die-for (and most run about $450/night). They're perfect for any stylish adventurer — and between their minimalist builds and stunning Scandi decor, perfect for a dose of decorating inspo!
The Blue Cone: Find your four closest friends and stay in this cheery red treehouse. Take the bridge to access your digs, where you'll be greeted with rustic birch and timber interiors across the bedroom, loft, bathroom, and living room. Take in the breathtaking views in the minimally decorated setup before making your way over to the nearby treehouse sauna for the ultimate (elevated) treehouse adventure.
The Cabin: This picturesque pad, nestled in a capsule on a hillside, is a can't-miss. It's ideal for a pair looking to stay together thanks to its double bed and bathroom. (Spoiler alert: The best part lies beyond the interior.) Head to the rooftop where you'll find a dreamy, private outdoor terrace, perfect for taking in the sunsets.
The 7th Room: Journey up a 32-foot staircase for 360-degree treetop views. (Psst! When the season's right, you can see the northern lights.) Features in this home include two double beds, a sofa, lounge and bathroom, all accented in a simplistic, yet charming back-to-the-woods style. Then, for brave visitors, there's a net (yes, net!) patio to provide the experience of seeing nature from the ground up.
The Dragonfly: Suggest this one to your boss for your next all-hands meeting. But seriously, Treehotel positions this pick as its largest property, packed with seating (with a table for 10 and two group rooms) and tech equipment for all your conference needs. The coolest part (other than the fact that it doubles as a workspace) is the exterior made out of sheet metal that naturally camouflages with the forest around it. How about that for fitting in!
Mirrorcube: If you're in it for the views, a 13 x 13 x 13 square-foot box of reflective glass walls will do the job for you. We mean, any angle you look in this home, you're bound to see mile and miles of undisturbed bliss, which is something we can get totally on board with.
The Bird's Nest: TBH, this one made us do a double-take. The nest-like accommodation is so hidden, the only way to access it is with a retractable ladder entrance. But don't let the concealed exterior fool you — the interior is spacious and homey with wood paneling spread among its bedrooms, bathrooms, and living rooms. Happy nesting!
The UFO: This is the most unique spot yet, making the mirror-like boxes and nests seem commonplace (okay not really, but we can pretend!). It's designed to look like a UFO on the exterior and can sleep up to five guests on their trip. Step inside and you'll find a modern vibe due, in part, to the compostable material making up the walls. Trust us: A stay in this sustainable place is worth adding to your bucket list.
