About the Hotel
Imagine living high up in the treetops, surrounded by the rich green foliage and rolling hills. There you are sitting on the wooden patio sipping some whiskey looking at the setting sun, cocooned in the silence of the forest. Sounds blissful right? Stretching across thousands of miles and several countries, the Amazon River basin is home to a diverse range of species. Travellers from all over the world are flocking to this exotic isolated jungle to experience the bliss of nature at her very best. A vacation at the Treehouse hotel in Peru offers guests just that. Read on to know more about the Treehouse Lodge in Peru and why is it the perfect vacationing spot for tourists this year:
Peru is a country that has it all. The place has a rich culture, deep-rooted heritage, diverse landscape, dramatic architecture, vibrant wildlife and a mix of pretty interesting people. The recently opened Treehouse Lodge in Peru only adds on to its attraction. Designed to give guests a panoramic view of the entire Amazonian basin, the hotel is set amongst 345 acres of pristine jungle reserve, up to 67ft off the ground. Tourists can book a room at the lodge as a part of the Rainforest cruise and spend their days at the gravity-defying treetops perched high up in the air.
The Treehouse Lodge is perhaps the most eco-friendly yet modern of accommodations constructed by hand and without the use ofany heavy equipment, in Periuan rainforests. Sitting smack in the middle of a jungle, the lodging consists of ten main bungalows all connected by wooden raised platforms cable bridges. The roof looms over the hotel at a height of about 40ft when seen from the bottom floors. The second floor includes a ceiling fan where you can lie down and rest for a while. The entire structure is enclosed inside a mosquito mesh allowing guests to enjoy the ambiance without having to worry about catching deadly diseases. The accommodation runs on solar power, although there is an electric generator for emergency situations.
For a place that’s set in such a remote location, it is surprising that the Treehouse Lodge actually manages to provide all the basic amenities and luxuries of a luxury hotel. The rooms are equipped with showers, sinks, comfy beds, chairs and even low-voltage freezers. There are a total of 10 bungalows here that you can choose from. We have mentioned a short but comprehensive report on each of them below:
Dos Ramas is among the most accessible and peaceful locations of the Treehouse. It sits 35ft above the ground and is 17ft wide. It stands over a lagoon that flood with water during a high tide, offering a very isolated tranquil stay for travelers. There are two large branches that enter the bungalow through the windows giving the place a very primitive, raw feel.
Lingua Vista sits 40ft off the ground and is built around an Oje tree surrounded by jungle vegetation. The rooms are approximately 18ft in diameter, furnished with the best quality king sized beds, fans, chairs, table, and extra cots if you want them.
Rio Vista is perhaps the only bungalow in the entire Treehouse alcove that offers a view of the Yarapa River. From here, you can catch the locals fishing or hunting, spot a dolphin or simply watch the tide during a full moon. Standing at a decent height of 40ft, the lodge is built on an ancient Oje tree and is 19ft in diameter.
Casa Grande is the largest and by far the most elegant of bungalows in the Treehouse. Standing at 25ft above the ground, the lodge 22ft in diameter and is pretty spacious for a family or a large group of friends. The charming holiday home has a similar design to the treehouse of the Swiss Family Robinson, albeit with the luxuries of a modern hotel.
Bungalow 5 has got no exotic name and is a mere 25ft above the ground. The accommodation is perfect for guests who want a quiet and peaceful holiday away from the din and chaos of the city. The rooms are equipped with king-sized beds, extra cots, ceiling fans, chairs and a balcony providing a scenic view of the nearby bamboo and palm trees.
Casa Alta is the highest bungalow at the Treehouse standing at 65ft above the ground. It towers over the jungle and is handmade by the local architects of Peru using only the natural organic wood and materials. The place is a haven for all nature lovers who love the adrenaline rush of exploring the wildlife of Amazon.
The Soledad stands tall and is the second highest accommodation in the Treehouse. Nestled amongst the trees, the bungalow gives you a beautiful view of the rainforest from all sides. You can spot monkeys, watch exotic birds and other creatures of the jungle quite frequently. The lodging stands 60ft above the ground and can easily accommodate a family of four.
Staying true to its name, the Cradle is positioned 30ft above the ground, inside numerous branches that are structured to form a beautiful natural holiday home. The bungalow is a bit isolated from the others and large enough for eight people. It is set a bit deeper into the jungle, providing a more authentic, primitive experience to the guests.
The Serena bungalow is situated 40ft off the ground housing up to 3 people in rooms that are 18ft wide in diameter. The beds are comfortable, coming with the finest linen and feather cushions. Even the rooms are very spacious and aesthetically pleasing.
Set about 50ft from the ground, the rooms are of 18ft in diameter and can accommodate three people comfortably. You get the option of choosing one large king sized bed or two medium twin ones depending on your requirement. The bungalow is situated on the river banks and comes with an open balcony for an amazing 360-degree view of the nearby foliage.
The hotel arranges for excursions and expeditions for guests who want to explore the fauna and flora of Amazon. However, you won’t miss out on much if you chose to stay indoors. The place is practically flooding with wildlife! From your bungalow itself, you can spot five different species of monkeys, pink and grey dolphins, sloths, macaws, parakeets and sometimes even a jaguar or small tigers. Here you can have all the adventures you’ve only read about or watched in a national geographic documentary. Swim in the Amazon, fish for piranhas, take a canoe trip to the dolphins, take a walk through the jungle, explore the nearby local tribes, observe the exotic birds around, visit the local communities of Jibaro and Kukama- there is never a dull moment at the Treehouse Lodge.
The warm humid lazy afternoons are the perfect time to stay indoors and relax at the local spa. Rejuvenate your senses and prepare for the night-time safari or nature cruises through the foliage. The jungles of Amazon never sleep, while during the days you can watch the birds, bees, and monkeys. The night is reserved for the nocturnal creatures and endangered insects who come out to prey and hunt for food.
