A tree house at Green Magic Resort in Kerala, India


Green Magic Resort

Surrounded by cardamom and pepper trees in the heart of a tropical rainforest, the Green Magic Resort is a dream come true for kids at heart. Consider this your own private playground and choose from two-story tree fort accommodations, located about 80 to 90 feet off the forest floor. The tree houses are accessed by an indigenous cane lift propelled by a unique water counterweight and are connected by hanging bridges. Each lodging was built by Paniya tribesmen using local materials and traditional techniques, and although they're simple (be prepared 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.
