Who wants to stay in a prissy hotel when you can sleep in a treehouse instead?

Rainforest Tree House

Location: Alajuela, Costa Rica

Damage: S$109/night

How better to experience the lush beauty of Costa Rica than to shack up in the foliage of surrounding trees? Aside from giving you an amazing view, staying here also grants you access to natural hot springs nearby. When not hanging out on your balcony with the capuchin monkeys and hornbills, feel free to explore activities like ziplining and white water rafting.

Houseboat

Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands

Damage: S$289/night

In a city known for its canals, it might be a better idea to stay on the water instead of a stodgy old hotel. While it might look like a houseboat on the outside, it’s more modern apartment on the inside with all the facilities you might need. Just be careful not to trip into the water when returning home.

More after the break...

Location: Pokolbin, Australia

Damage: S$375/night

Train lovers, indulge yourselves by booking a few nights at this beautifully restored carriage from the 1900s. Able to accommodate up to two couples, experience old world charm, but don’t expected to be waited on hand and foot as this is more of a self-catering experience. Not convinced? The seven vineyards in the vicinity should do the trick.

Geodesic Dome

With lakes to explore and small farms to visit in the area, this is a destination for people looking to get away from the concrete jungle.
