Rule your own domain just like when you were a kid: from a treehouse.

Some of the best things about childhood have happened in treehouses, like slumber parties and telling scary stories. Now you can relive the magic of playing high above the ground at this resort’s beautiful treehouse suite.

The Papaya Playa hotel in Tulum, Mexico, features plush accommodations, a beach club with a live DJ, and nearly a mile of private beaches for its guests, but the best room at this hotel has to be its special treehouse in the middle of the jungle.

The suite was designed by owner Emilio Heredia in collaboration with Design Hotels.

Guests climb up a beautiful, carved wood, spiral staircase to reach this unconventional lodging, which has a reading room for guests to relax and take in the scenery.
