The Tree Hotel

I stumbled across this crazy futuristic hotel project the other day, and knew I had to feature it on Travel Lightbulb! There's no better way to introduce it, than to show you a photo.

How amazing is that? The hotel is located in the town of Harads in Sweden, which is just 60km below the Arctic circle. It consists of completely crazy individual rooms, each designed by a different Swedish architect. It has been named on the prestigious Conde Nast Traveller Hot List for 2011, and perhaps the most stunning room is the mirrorcube (pictured above). It reflects everything from the forest around, making it almost invisible. The idea of the owners is to create a comfortable, well designed hotel which allows visitors to live in harmony with nature - and they certainly seem to have achieved it.

The room pictured above is another of my favourite rooms - imagine sleeping in your own spaceship! Within five years, the owners hope to have even more rooms, each by different architects. If they're anything like the structures that are already there, this will be a totally inspirational hotel. Wow.

So do you like the look of this hotel? Have you stayed in a treehouse? Where is the most obscure place you've stayed?
