UPDATE: Treehotel are now offering their Mirrorcube treehouse as a turnkey solution available to the public

Don’t get me wrong, cities are great. Hell, I currently live in London and before my days are over want to spend a serious amount more time in New York, LA, Tokyo, Paris, Sydney and more, but when you need to really get away, it should be to the Treehotel, not the Waldorf.

An eco-based design hotel concept, each “room” is wonderfully individual with stunning design and even better views. With the plan to build 24 new treehouses over 5 years, a handful are already in place, and miles from civilisation offering the perfect, isolated getaway, just a touch south of the Arctic Circle. Although the nearby Britta’s Guesthouse, run by the owners of Treehotel, will serve up breakfast, lunch and dinner, and offers a spa, TV, internet, and a bunch of other home comforts you probably should go without. Pick of the bunch, the Mirrorcube, will set you back SEK4200 (around £420) a night, for two, which is somehow worth it.
