The reasons behind constructing the tree house units at Belize Treehouses were manifold. When Caves Branch Jungle & Adventure Lodge needed to expand, instead of cutting down valuable, pristine rainforest, we decided to build among the trees. Thus, Belize Treehouses was born – a resort complex made up of elegant rooms set high up within the jungle canopy. Since many of our guests are new to the concept of treehouse accommodations, we make sure to provide floor plans on our website to give them an idea of what the rooms look like. See the infographic below for the layout of a Canopy View Treehouse unit, created from the unit’s floor plan (please click to zoom!):
After climbing a flight of steps to the front door of the Canopy View tree house, you gain access to the inside of the unit via a short corridor. Just off this corridor is an outdoor shower, on your left as you enter the unit. The corridor leads to the lower deck, where there is a sitting area. From the lower deck you can climb a short stairway to the bedroom, which has a king-sized bed overlooking the lower levels. Adjacent to the bedroom is a luxuriously appointed bathroom containing a separate shower closet with screened-in outdoor views. From both the bathroom and the bedroom you can gain access to the living room, which contains a large, spacious sitting area and a bunk bed tucked against one wall. On the second floor is a private deck with a two-person soaker tub accessed by a stairway off of the main floor bedroom. This unit, as well as all other units on the property, also includes:
- Electric lights and fans
- Hot and cold water
- Electrical outlets for charging batteries
- Screens on all windows to keep out jungle critters
- Furniture made from local hardwoods and cane, and finished with natural materials
- Regional marble from Mexico and Guatemala
- Exquisite local art pieces
The Canopy View units are located farther uphill than our other rooms; however, they are worth every step of the climb, as they afford a magnificent view of the valley below. See our photo gallery page for 360ᵒ virtual tours of our accommodations and jungle views from the units.
There are also regular rooms – ground-level jungle bungalows and cabanas, for those who have reservations about sleeping among the treetops, as well as jungle suites. However, most of our guests rave about the treehouse experience:
“We splurged for a treehouse suite – best money spent ever. I still miss the jungle shower.”
“We stayed in the Tree House room, so much better than I had imagined! Huge room, with netting acting as 3 of the walls so you really heard the sounds of the creatures at night…SO COOL!!! It did take a little to get used to, and the night of the lightning storm was the craziest we have ever had.”
“This place is absolutely beautiful! So tranquil and serene. If you want to experience the jungle in Belize than this is certainly the place to do it! I stayed in a two bedroom treehouse that was incredible! The room was very spacious and the beds extremely comfortable. They even manufacture their own soap on property, which is wonderful. In saying that, I was able to take my first bath ever outside! Over looking the jungle canopy with a warm breeze…….amazing! The treehouse had an outdoor shower as well, which of course I made use of. The property is wonderful, so lush and green. They had a schedule of adventures that you can choose from daily, so there is no boredom! The swimming pool was a great way to relax as well. The food was wonderful and the staff very accommodating! I can’t wait to return and enjoy this jungle paradise again!”
