Tree houses are one of the most popular types of glamping. Modern architecture and construction has allowed tree houses to be erected in the most diverse places in the world. Immersed in nature, tree houses envelop the true definition of glamping as they are each unique, luxurious and awe-inspiring. Our eye this week is on TreeCasa Resort as they recently announced the opening of its secluded eco treehouse community perched high amongst the tropical Central American forest. This treehouse resort is the epitome of healthy travel. Located 10 minutes from Nicaragua’s adventure capital, San Juan Del Sur on the southwest coast, the 36-room property features two pools, an orchard, organic garden, garden-to-table restaurant, poolside bar, two yoga decks, two lounges, meeting space, horseback riding and a maze of hiking and dirt biking trails.
“A trip to TreeCasa is like summer camp for the soul, a place where travel experiences leave you permanently transformed,” said Douglas Jackson, President and CEO, TreeCasa Resort. “Our vision was to create a sustainable yet comfortable experience that showcases the natural beauty of Nicaragua while simultaneously introducing a way for visitors to connect to each other, the destination and to themselves.”
TreeCasa is surrounded by Ceiba Pentandra (Kapok) trees, considered in Mesoamerican tradition to be sacred in energy, and celebrated for its medicinal benefits. Guests can choose a stay in the serene main tree house or in one of 35 canopy suites. The rooms are styled with hand-carved furniture, stone countertops, a king or two twins beds and a large bathroom and a spacious balcony equipped with a hammock for relaxing and enjoying unrivaled mountain views.
The property features two hillside yoga decks where visitors can reflect and renew, or enjoy a moment of silence. After reviving that inner glow with free daily classes for guests, wander through wooden decks on a shaded path of trees to visit native birds, butterflies, insects, fish, amphibians, mammals, a wide array of native birds, and even a family of local howler monkeys that call TreeCasa home. The more adventurous can head for the hills on two wheels or on foot on the newly developed mountain bike and hiking trails, created for every skill level. Travelers seeking relaxation may enjoy romantic poolside dinners, a sunset picnic or even a bonfire.
TreeCasa was designed to enhance sustainability and utilizes elements of wind and water through a greywater catchment and recycling system. In an ongoing commitment to sustainability, the surrounding buildings were created using local, natural, indigenous materials and techniques combined with modern technology.
The menu at La Cocina de TreeCasa, the resort’s signature restaurant, takes pride utilizing local ingredients by reflecting the day’s harvest from the resort’s expansive organic garden and orchard.
“TreeCasa is so much more than just a tropical resort, it’s an eco-cultural hub where people can come to be inspired by like-minded individuals who value conversation, eco-forward thinking and emerging design talent,” said General Manager Alam Cordero. “It is a true testament to the strong passion from a close community of makers, builders, artists and sustainability engineers. It’s a place you never really leave because you take a part of it with you in your heart and leave your own unique thumbprint behind.”
