Surrounded by coffee, cardamom and pepper plantations in the heart of a tropical rainforest, Green Magic Resort is a dream come true for kids at heart. Consider this your own private playground and choose from one of the four two-story tree fort accommodations, located about 80 to 90 feet off the forest floor. One of the tree houses is accessed by an indigenous cane lift that uses a unique water counterweight, while a second accommodation is reached by a hanging bridge. Each lodging was built by Paniya tribesmen using local materials and traditional techniques, and although they're simple (prepare yourself for cold showers), they're loaded with charm. Because these sometimes swaying houses aren't for everyone, the resort also has villas and cottages for those who want to keep their feet planted firmly on the ground.
