There are few hotels in the world that have received the media attention quite like that of the Treehotel in recent years. It has appeared on television programmes, featured in numerous art, design and fashion publications and welcomed celebrities. Yet, even with all of the hype, the Treehotel is a property where you and I will feel comfortable and which I would recommend for families and couples alike.

Conde Nast Traveller recently wrote their review of the hotel and here is mine.

My first impressions:

As you pull into the parking area of the Treehotel the remarkable feats of architectural design remain hidden in the forest. You can feel the anticipation and excitement building without even stepping foot inside.

Your first connection with the Treehotel is through a charming guesthouse, which also houses the reception and restaurant. In stark contrast to the modern tree rooms themselves, the guesthouse oozes old-world charm with antique pieces, doilies and floral decor. It is an environment that brings back memories of your childhood, visiting your grandparents house, and in which you cannot help but to feel relaxed and welcomed.

From here you are led through the woods to your tree room.

The rooms:

There are 7 rooms at the Treehotel (Mirror Cube, UFO, Birds Nest, Blue Cone, The Cabin, The Dragonfly and the 7th Room).

My favourite rooms were The Cabin, the Blue Cone and the Mirror Cube.

The Cabin:

Elevated in the trees, the focus of this narrow, modern room is its panoramic floor-to-ceiling window and rooftop terrace. From the moment you enter the room your eyes are transfixed on the far-reaching scene, over the trees to the river valley beyond. The room has a double bed and bathroom (toilet and sink).

Blue Cone:

From the outside this ground level room leads you to believe that it is the least exciting of all of the tree rooms. Looks can be deceiving. The view from this room is spectacular. I could easily while-away the hours reading my book and taking in the view. You do not see any of the other tree rooms from here, it is just you and nature. The room has a double bed and bathroom (toilet and sink).

Mirror Cube:

Inside and out the Mirror Cube is a show-stopper. Built around the trunk of a tree and accessed by a suspension bridge, the room reflects the surrounding forest and sympathetically blends into its environment. As you approach the door, you can see yourself and a lush backdrop that seems to go on and on. Inside the room is fresh, spacious and the views are excellent.  The room has a double bed and bathroom (toilet and sink).

Highlights

The food:

I had many highlights from my time at the Treehotel but I was really taken-aback by the quality of the food served. The dishes were wholesome and used local and seasonal produce. They offered an insight to the local region. I would highly recommend Half Board or Full Board to anyone staying here.

The activities:

A stay at the Treehotel can be as active or relaxed as you desire. It is a place where you can forget about the time constraints of everyday life, enjoy the serenity and rejuvenate in a natural setting. Or, you can learn a new skill and set your heart racing with a host of activities.

Regardless of the time of year there are opportunities galore. Fishing, horse riding, fat biking, moose safaris, zip-lining, rafting, Sami cultural tours, dog-sledding, snowmobiling, northern light safaris are just some of the activities on offer. Many experiences can be tailored to your needs and offered on an exclusive basis.

Genuine welcome:

It is clear that the enthusiasm and passion of Kent and Brittas, the owners of the Treehotel, has been passed down to the team who manage the property on a day-to-day basis. The love and excitement of working at this world-famous property is encapsulated in everything they do and in the genuine welcome that they offer their guests. You may arrive as strangers but you will leave as friends.

Overview:

The Treehotel is a year-round destination. You can combine a stay at the Treehotel with a stay in Stockholm or a stay at the ICEHOTEL (to name but a few of the options available). You can even incorpoate the Treehotel in a longer, multi-centre fly-drive itinerary.

For honeymoons, artists, active couples and families it is a perfect choice.
