Our Room, High Up on a Tree!


Both Masood and I found ourselves excited like children, checking out everything in the tree house.  After putting down our bags, the guy who showed us our tree house excused himself to return ten minutes later with two glasses of chilled lemon juice.  Masood tried the swing first, and didn’t leave it until, um, he felt like leaving it.

So, we got the following facilities in the tree house:

  • A dressing table (but the lighting was better in the bathroom, so I used the mirror there).
  • A small closet – with a lock and key – which contained a couple of hangers for clothes and an extra pillow.
  • A cute center table created  around the tree trunks in the middle of the room.
  • A table and couple of chairs (though food isn’t allowed in the tree house since it could attract monkeys).
  • A comfortable bed with a net (protection against mosquitoes), blankets,  and pillows.
  • Two fresh towels
  • Attached bathroom so there’s loads of privacy  and you don’t have to walk in the dark at night (yay!), plus there’s a heater for warm shower too!
  • Water and electricity
  • A ceiling fan (plus they provided us a desk fan right away when we asked them).

We totally didn’t expect all these things to be available in the tree house!  I immediately pulled up the blinds to let natural light in.  I also love how they have put up nice curtains.  It made the place look so cozy.

    So this is what you saw inside? Baahar se toh jhopad-patti dikhra tha.. but it looks pretty good from inside….

    • nadia says:

      Yes, it looked very good! And the room was very clean too. AND we also saw a huge spider on the curtains. I don’t know much about spiders, and was afraid that this one was poisonous. But Masood acted as if it was just a regular bug!

  3. 'liya says:

    I was going to say, that’s a really big spider! Very important question: were there a lot of bugs or was that spider kinda just the only one… I’m really hoping you say there weren’t a lot lol.

    I love the place, it’s beautiful. You guys made the right choice by staying there. That’s such a cool experience, now you can say you’ve slept in a tree – how many people can say that 😀 Okay so now I know exactly where I want to stay when we go to India one day hehe… I’m going to bug V about this from NOW.

    Thanks for sharing this, I love it!!

    • nadia says:

      It was a big spider! But thankfully, it was the only bug around (or the only one I saw).

      And yes, we can say that we’ve slept in a tree 😀

      I highly recommend it! I’m sure V won’t say no 😀

    • nadia says:

    This is so awesome 😀

  12. Leena S. says:

    now, coming to ur post. This seems heavenly..simply awesome!! I cant believe they have ‘pretty much’ all the facilities that u expect from a hotel. And the swing!! Gosh, I just want to visit a tree house like this so badly…obviously it would be better if it had no spiders 😛
    So, did u get to see all the wild animals roaming all around ur tree house? 😀

    • nadia says:

      Leena, we honestly didn’t expect all these facilities to be available in the tree house, and then to see everything so nice and proper, it was truly a pleasant surprise!

      We saw wild animals, but thankfully not around the tree house 😀

  13. uneekmuslimah says:

    Awww Masha Allah … Nadi it’s sooooo cozy and neat and pretty … BUT the spiderrrrrrrrrr …. Oh boy this one thing gives me creeeppppssssss :s

    • nadia says:

      Sis, Masood was praying dhuh’r and this spider was right next to him! I didn’t know what to do, so I just kept an eye on it. But when I pointed the spider out to him later when he was done, he just ignored it!

  14. Hajar Alwi says:

    Assalamualaikum dearest Nadia~~~! I love the tree house!!! Especially the attached bathroom! Who would have thought of a pink-colored attached bathroom in a tree house?!!! Brilliant! Now who says that tree houses are for kids??? Grown-ups should have our very own tree house(s)!!! Honestly, I don’t mind having a couple of these right behind my backyard. 😛

    • nadia says:

      Walaikum Assalam dearest Hajar 😀

      Yes, the bathroom is pink 😀 But believe me, I was so relieved to see the bathroom within the tree house. Plus the running water.

      Yes, grown ups have the right to tree houses too 😀

      And yes, I want one in my backyard too. But I have to start with having a backyard first 😀

  15. GeekiSiddiqui says:

    Much nicer than I expected…..I’m just not sure about that spider….I wouldn’t have my vacuum to fight off bugs…..hmmm……

  16. 'liya says:

    V is very impressed with the spider pic lol.

  17. Lat k says:

    It’s so beautiful! I was really expecting to see you hold a toilet bucket in hand! haha! 😀 It’s definitely a much more decent toilet I could expect at a tree house.

    Pics are fantastic and I love the slide show you’ve put up.It’s a vacation well-spent.

    • nadia says:

      LOL – I was planning to do just that, holding the bucket out of excitement of finding an attached bathroom! Good thing the husband was there to bring me back to my senses 😀

  18. This is really beautiful, Nadia! absolutely love it, esp the pink bathroom! that musta eased all your loo worries eh?

    this is an amazing place. The washroom up in a tree! I wonder how they did the plumbing lol.

    But seriously, your pictures should be in a tourist book!

    • nadia says:

      Mezba, we saw pipes coming out from under the tree house that went into the soil. Maybe I should’ve asked the owner for details 🙂

      Thank you for the compliments on the pictures. I need that kind of motivation to improve myself.

  21. Atie says:

    Masya-Allah! I am in love with this place again and again and again…… I must go there one day… Thanks, sis, for the lovely pictures and brilliant descriptions of the tree house. It really look marvelous!

    thanks for coming over my site. regards to you and masood!

    🙂 san

  25. Aminah Ali says:

    oh my! How come I missed your these absolutely mesmerizing posts?! That’s something perfect for my senses *Dreaming to go there*. I prefer greenery and all that serenity it brings, who knew you can even go and rent a tree house?! Oh my oh my… that sounds like a crazy imagination coming live subhanAllah! Didn’t know something like this actually exists, and in our neighbour country 🙂 😀 I shall start telling and then nagging my husband LOL

    BTW I can only see one pic of the bed? Where are the pink bathroom and the spider and the dressing…?

    • nadia says:

      Hello Aminah! Yes, it’s like a childhood dream come true! Sorry about the pictures; it was a form of a slideshow on my older blog and didn’t get imported here. Now I’ve put them up just for you 🙂

      I do hope you get the chance to stay at this resort. Let me know if you are so that I could call them ahead and notify them about your arrival.

  26. Aminah Ali says:

    Aww thank you sooooo much Nadia! That’s really sweeeeeet of you 🙂 many thanks, shukran, merci, shukriya

    That bathroom is really impressive, in a tree house that is. MashaAllah everything’s so wonderfully designed.

    Yeah if we make our plans, I’m definitely gonna bug u a lot. 🙂 I wish we had such things here in Pakistan

    • nadia says:

      You are most welcome, Aminah! You know, one of my biggest concern before we actually saw the tree house was the bathroom. I read in a blog that the guy had to walk several feet from his tree house to go to the bathroom, and that really scared me because what if I need to go in the middle of the night? But alhumdulillah, we got an attached bath in the tree house. How amazing is that! You should see the look of relief on my face 😀
