Growing up, a couple of planks and a piece of rope in the back garden could make a treehouse awesome enough to while away the entire summer. But now we’re a little older, a little wiser and a little more reliant on the finer things in life. Like WiFi. Here at Center Parcs, you can enjoy enjoy a forest holiday in your own luxury Treehouse, complete with hot tub, physiotherm room, games den, minibar, Sky TV and, of course, WiFi.

But our Treehouses aren’t the only examples of jaw-dropping architecture in the forest. Take a look at our rundown of the five most envy-inducing treehouses around the world.

  1. The Korowai treehouses, Papua New Guinea

Not the most luxurious or outrageous treehouse on our list, but these structures lack in infinity pools and mezzanine bedrooms they more than make up for in height. The Korowai people build their canopy homes at a knee-trembling 50 metres above the ground. That makes even our High Ropes Challenge look tame! Makeshift ladders are constructed using branches and vines to access the homes, which are built so high up so as to avoid swarms of flies and the territorial advances of neighbouring tribes.

  1. The Mirrorcube, Sweden

We’ve heard of architecture reflecting the natural environment around it, but this modernist treehouse takes the concept to a new level. A perfect cube with walls clad in reflective glass, this unusual structure boasts panoramic views and appears to be camouflaged in its surroundings. But if you’re thinking “imagine the bird strikes…” don’t fear! The Mirrorcube is coated in an infrared material that is invisible to the human eye, but acts as a warning to feathered friends and stops them from flying into it.

  1. Alnwick Garden Treehouse, Northumberland

Commissioned by the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland (so you know it’s fancy), this treehouse is found at Alnwick Gardens, the largest public open gardens in Europe. The treehouse is predominantly a restaurant, serving locally sourced fine dining to 120 covers. But there are also classrooms for seminars and special events, a juice bar as well as private rooms used by the family. Each area is joined via treetop walkways and rustic rope bridges.

  1. 4TREEHOUSE, Canada

Looking like a huge Japanese lantern floating between the trees, 4TREEHOUSE in Ontario, Canada, is suspended 20 feet above the forest floor by steel cables. The wooden frame weighs two tonnes and comprises 5,000 square feet. The lattice design of the walls is designed to imitate the light filtering effects of the tree canopy above, limiting the amount of natural light that can penetrate.

  1. The Epic Treehouse, Oregon

When Foster Huntington decided to settle down after travelling around the USA in his van for three years, he didn’t do the usual thing and buy a house. Instead, he decided to build himself a treehouse. With the help of carpenter friends, he constructed one of the most spectacular and fun treehouses ever built, complete with outdoor hot tub and private skate bowl! The whole project cost Foster over $100,000, but with WiFi and 4G, it’s now his unspeakably cool home.
