Naked Stables Resort

Perched on a hillside at the foot of Moganshan, the Naked Stables Resort mixes luxury design with primitive techniques. The hotel is made up of 121 treehouse villas, constructed from stone masonry, traditional mud walls, and reclaimed timber frames. Surrounded by a bamboo forest, each room is immersed in the natural surrounding with generous glazing and private balconies. Ranging from casual poolside dining to European cuisine, a trio of restaurants serve a variety of fare made with ingredients harvested on-site. Entertainment includes the usual horseback riding, yoga, hiking, biking, golfing, and fishing, as well as some traditional activities like tea picking, bamboo weaving, and pottery — or you can opt to get behind the wheel of a Land Rover and rip through the longest all-terrain driving track in China.

  • Bergaliv Hotel

    Rising above the treetops on the Åsberget mountains, the Bergaliv Hotel has finished the first of four lofted cabins. The 33-foot tall stilted structure is constructed from a mixture of heart-pine and spruce, situated on a former ski slope. The interior offers accommodations for two on the lower level. Sheathed in raw birch plywood, the modest space carries a minimalist aesthetic consisting of just a simple kitchenette, dual window seat, and living area that also doubles as sleeping quarters. Above, a viewing platform rests below a gabled roof. Stripped of any barriers to the outdoors, the open-air space affords near endless views of the Ljusnan River valley below.

  • Arctic Bath

    Free floating in the summer and frozen in place during the winter, the Arctic Bath is a hotel in the middle of the Lule River. Resembling a bird's nest, the circular structure is built around a central bath. But you won't seek refuge from the frigid Swedish climate here — the water is kept at a cool four degrees. After a refreshing dip, guests can warm up with a visit to the sauna or spa. Although the hotel also offers a shop, lounge, and restaurant, the main attraction is what's above. Its location allows for uninterrupted views of the Northern Lights.
