For a truly authentic getaway from the hustle and bustle of city life, nothing beats a bedroom in the sky surrounded by trees instead of skyscrapers.
Unplug and recharge in one of these unique treehouse stays in New Zealand.
1. Hapuku Lodge, Hapuku from HotelsCombined
Snooze atop the canopy in Hapuku inside your very own treehouse.
Perched 10 metres off the ground and armed with large glass windows, you'll spend hours soaking up stunning views of Kaikoura’s dramatic mountains and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. Guaranteed.
Star rating: 5-star
Features: All rooms boast a two-person spa bath, fireplace and balcony. There's also an on-site restaurant so you'll never have to leave.
Why do we love it? It might look like a couple's retreat but this treehouse is family-friendly with babysitting services and even a kids' pool.
2. Rainforest Retreat, Franz Josef from HotelsCombined
Rainforest Retreat has rooms for everyone, from backpackers to luxury travellers, but the ones you want to be in are the treehouses. There are only two: the deluxe spa treehouse and the Kamahi 4-bedroom treehouse which fits 10. Head's up, time to get that group going.
Close to natural beauty such as glaciers and lakes while being in the town centre makes this a popular choice in glacier country.
Star rating: 4-star
Features: Restaurant and bar on-site, game room, kids' club, barbeque facilities.
Why do we love it? It's conveniently located near the Franz Josef township where you can take flights up to see the glacier and experience a completely different environment.
3. Tree House Lodge Bed & Breakfast, Cheviot from HotelsCombined
Fancy sipping wine in front of an open fire and beneath tree trunks older than you?
The Tree House Lodge is beautiful both inside and out. For views of the rolling hills in the morning and stargazing at night, go for the superior chalet.
