Free Spirit Spheres

Floating in a grove of cedar and maple trees, the Free Spirit Spheres offers treehouse accommodations in the rainforest of Vancouver Island. Each of the three suspended domes varies in size and comes equipped with sleeping for two, a dining table, built-in speakers, purified drinking water, and a circular window to admire the lush coastal environment. The first two models are hand-craft from Sitka Spruce, while the newest addition is made from a vivid yellow fiberglass with a black walnut interior and more spacious living area. When you're ready to leave your pod, Horne Lake Caves, Parksville Beach, and the Lighthouse Country Regional Trail are all at your disposal.

  • Treehotel

    Getting back to nature doesn't have to mean getting back to sub-par accommodations. The Treehotel offers seven unique treehouses, each built with an eye on sustainability. They include a mirrored cube, a UFO-shaped room, and a bright red building strangely named The Blue Cone. The latest addition is the aptly-named 7th Room, designed by Snohetta and featuring multiple rooms centered around a netted terrace, furthering the treehouse feel. Apart from the modern interior designs, the hotel also offers a tree-based sauna and hottub, various outdoor activities, and easy access to the restaurant in nearby Harads, Sweden.

  • Huus Gstaad

    Set over half a mile above sea level in the Swiss Alps, Huus Gstaad is a terrific mountain getaway. Formerly known as the Steigenberger Hotel, the 136-room property has been transformed by Norwegian designer and architect Erik Nissen Johansen, who carefully blended traditional materials with modern design. On site amenities include a "living room" with 500 books, a fireplace, and outstanding views, a contemporary bar, a spa, and multiple eateries. Outside, meanwhile, you have access to over 150 miles of skiing slopes and trails, and during warmer months, rafting, rappelling, and biking.
