Treehotel – The Weirdest Hotel in the World

Treehotel - The Mirror Cube

Sometimes sheer luxury can be beat with a large portion of uniqueness and originality. Treehotel is an innovative and completely original hotel which consists of 24 unique themed rooms scattered around the woods around Harads. Built in 2010 and designed by some of Scandinavia’s leading architects, Treehotel also features five tree rooms, a tree sauna for up to twelve people, situated among the centuries-old pines.

Upon checking in at Britta’s Pensionat, it’s a five-minute walk to Treehotel. Treehotel is located in the tall pine forest with spectacular views of the Lule River. The tree rooms are suspended 4-6 metres above the ground and are accessible by ramp, bridge, or electric stairs.

Every room is unique, with its own particular style of architecture, furniture, lighting and fabrics. The rooms are designed in such a way to show a harmony with nature and the entire resort is environmentally friendly. Here’s a short breakdown of some of the more interesting rooms that make up the resort:
