- Out-of-the-ordinary architecture, sleek decor and the sharpest service – MARK C.O’FLAHERTY discovers four inspiring global retreats
More than a little sci-fi, this collection of five treehouses has become a place of rustic pilgrimage for architects, designers and coolhunters. Stay in the Mirrorcube – a four-meter-squared, bright white birch room with a mirrored exterior, which makes it both dazzling yet close to invisible amid the treetops. This being Sweden, there’s also an on-site, super-modern sauna.
Insider tip: Book three nights and stay in different rooms – try the UFO, the Blue Cone and the Bird’s Nest for three unique nights’ sleep. From SEK3300; treehotel.se
