We’ve gone over sustainability, now let’s talk luxury. Though it may not look very palatial from the outside, once inside guests can settle into the suite’s open-air sitting room, enjoy the private ground-floor bathroom, and end their day in an upper-level sleeping area. The latter features a sumptuous king-sized bed and a two-person hammock: what better way to get into the swing of things? The treehouse suite overlooks a private beach and can sleep up to three people – yes, it’s both family- and lifestyle-friendly.
As one might expect, luxurious resort living doesn’t come cheap – good thing most vacation stays are measured in days or weeks and not months or years! Here’s how the numbers crunch: prices range from $445 to $620 per night depending on the season though meals and optional yoga classes are included.
Visitors will want to stretch their legs, of course, and for that there’s the magnificent Playa Viva resort itself. The “sustainable boutique hotel” occupies 200 lush and manicured acres including a natural river estuary and an Aztec archaeological site. A turtle sanctuary, an untouched coastal forest and mangrove ecosystem support a wide array of wildlife. Bring your wallet and your camera; leave your cares and materialism behind. (via WENN)
