Solar-powered and Sustainable-this Bamboo Treehouse Rocks!

Where are you going for your next holiday? – because I think I’ve just found MY choice for summer!

Lying beneath a canopy of palms swaying lazily in the breeze and with views overlooking the beautiful Pacific ocean lies this cylindrical Treehouse suite belonging to the Playa Viva sustainable resort, just north of Acapulco, Mexico.


Recently opened, and constructed almost entirely of Bamboo, this 700 square foot solar-powered treehouse is,

‘designed to visually intrigue and highlight sustainable strategies to deliver a natural immersive guest experience,’ according to Deture Culsign.

The palms act as living piers to hold up the structure built 6 feet off the ground, the bedroom ‘perch‘ boasts a king bed that can be divided into 2 singles (plus there’s a couple of daybeds for moochers!), there is a built-in 2-person hammock, and the private bathroom is partially open-air for sky views while showering.

It doesn’t come cheap however, so start saving: Rates are $445/$520/$620 for Low/High/Holiday Seasons respectively, based on double occupancy. (I’m assuming those are US dollars so Aussies multiply those prices by roughly 1.3).

Still, I wouldn’t mind a couple of weeks of doing nothing if I had a place like this to stay. Where do I sign?
