We love the look of this new eco resort in Okinawa, Treeful Treehouse, set to open in 2021

Travel-restrictions aside, this looks like the perfect new destination for nature-loving yogis aching to get away.

Treeful Treehouse, set to open in spring 2021, is a brand new sustainable luxury eco resort in Japan's subtropical southern prefecture of Okinawa.

Designed with the concept of bringing its guests closer to nature, it will offer secluded private rooms nestled amongst the jungle canopy alongside a communal Aerohouse space and activities for visitors to explore the local area.

The communal Aerohouse is equipped with bathrooms, rest and relaxation rooms and a kitchen connected to the treehouse rooms via a series of floating walkways and jungle paths. The resort's Floating DNA Catwalk, inspired by the vertebrae of a spine, connects the ground to the tree deck making the resort accessible to wheelchair users.

Located in rural Nago on the north side of Okinawa Island, it may well be the future of eco-friendly travel. All rooms have been individually crafted to sit seamlessly within the natural environment, built around the existing flora in the area, whilst still providing a luxurious glamping-style setting and modern facilities.

The wooden treehouse rooms boast 360 degree views and an outside seating area complete with cosy hammocks ideal for night-time stargazing. The unusual egg treehouse room, inspired by boats and crafted by a local yacht builder, will offer guests the chance to sleep within a truly unique cocooned space up high in the trees.

Once open, the resort will offer guests a series of excursions and experiences to explore the local area including jungle trekking, kayaking, paddle boarding and yoga.
