When you were young, did you have a treehouse in your backyard? Perhaps you spent long summers in your exclusive “clubhouse” with your friends. Or if you didn’t (like me), you might have at least dreamed about having one. You can easily tap into that nostalgia as an adult by dining at one of these seven treetop restaurants at hotels around the world.
1. Haramara Retreat, Sayulita, Mexico
The open-air dining room at Haramara Retreat is nestled into the jungle canopy on a hillside overlooking the sea. The restaurant is open to the public, so both hotel guests and visitors can dine on organic, mainly vegetarian fare.
2. RIMBA Jimbaran Bali by AYANA, Jimbaran, Bali
This tropical property just opened the new Forest Bar, a treetop lounge crafted from sustainable materials. Guests at the hotel can enjoy a cocktail and food menu inspired by Brazilian and Caribbean flavors.
3. Anse Chastanet Resort, Soufriere, St. Lucia
At Anse Chastanet’s fine dining offering, the Treehouse Restaurant, breakfast and dinner made from produce grown on the property are served in a hilltop venue overlooking the grounds. Take note of the original artwork that lines the walls.
4. The Lodge at Chaa Creek, San Ignacio, Belize
One of the first eco-lodges in Belize, the Lodge at Chaa Creek serves dishes in its restaurant made from produce grown at its organic Maya farm. Sip a Sorrel Flower iced tea while relaxing at the veranda bar, which sits among the trees at the property’s riverside site.
5. Lapa Rios Eco Lodge, Puerto Jimenez, Costa Rica
The Brisa Azul restaurant at this resort doesn’t just sit in the trees—it’s also crafted from them. The main lodge, where the restaurant is located, was crafted from wood from fallen trees. Enjoy a gourmet menu produced with local ingredients.
6. Portofino Beach Resort, North Ambergris Caye, Belize
Dine on Euro-Caribbean fare prepared with fresh seafood and locally sourced produce in the romantic Portofino Restaurant. The restaurant is a favorite not only of guests, but also of locals and other tourists staying at nearby properties.
7. Aqua Wellness Resort, Rivas, Nicaragua
Beneath a thatched roof, Bromelia Restaurant serves Nicaraguan and American cuisine, including fresh goods from the on-site bakery. Expect delicious healthy dishes, as the resort is focused on wellness!
