For those seeking lush rain forest and idyllic beaches
Whether you want to properly reconnect with family and friends or you simply wish a vacation to get closer to Mother Nature, there are few better ideas than staying in a treehouse hotel. Why not use the freedom of flying privately to stay at two tree house hotels in totally different settings, in two different countries on the same private jet trip?

To the James Bond island of Jamaica (filming is taking place there right now on the next Bond movie), enjoy exclusive use of Kanopi House, which can sleep up to 16 in the various size treehouses they have placed thoughtfully around this pristine 6 acre rain forest. The dramatically sloping waterfront jungle garden has its own private shore right on to the famous Blue Lagoon. The day trip possibilities include the unforgettable experience of rafting gently down the Rio Grande river and stopping off for a riverside rustic lunch at Miss Belinda’s Kitchen. You can include a helicopter trip up to the Blue Mountains for either a sleep over in a funky mountain eco camp or five star boutique hotel, ready for a sunrise trek to the 3,000m+ peak of the Blue Mountains. Back at Kanopi House, soak up the sun for a couple of afternoons on the beach at Frenchmen’s Cove, San San or Long Bay. Take a jungle river trek up to Reach Falls and lunch in the bush after river swimming. Most off all, cool out in the treehouse living room at Kanopi House and watch the Caribbean Sea waves break gently over the reef around Monkey Island, and see the outline of Alligator Head in your sunset view - it’s a view you will never forget.
How many days do you imagine? 3 or 4 days in Jamaica? And then, on the chopper back to the aircraft to fly on to Tulum.
This very special project was driven by the founder of Design Hotels, the genius Claus Sendlinger. He, along with a curated group of international creatives, collaborated to create a very special house to gather in a place that they dearly loved. Most of all, it has a strong sense of place and history; in respect and support of the artisanal traditions and craftsmanship of the Yucatan region.
Here, you’re on the edge of the Caribbean Sea and the tree tops of the Sian Ka’an Bio-sphere Reserve; a national park home to native jaguars, panthers, crocodiles and dolphins. A spectacular terrain of Mayan ruins, pyramids, canals and lagoons. Plus, the world’s second largest barrier reef which runs from Mexico to Honduras giving shelter to an array of coral and sea life.
Tulum Treehouse can accommodate 10 in comfort and is no doubt best enjoyed on an exclusive use basis, where the menus and services are entirely based on your preferences and only you and your guests are in residence. The crowning glory of the treehouse is the rooftop terrace - high in canopy of the trees on the jungle’s very edge. Get active if you wish for eco-excursions exploring the jungle or making bubbles with a plan of private scuba diving.
