The Best of the Rest: Hotels We’re ScopingAuthor:Lindsey Shook
|Tree Huggers • Harads, Sweden|
For a wooded escape with a bit more luxury than a two-person tent, Treehotel in Northern Sweden offers six private tree houses for guests. Five different architects signed on to design the structures, which feature a variety of whimsical themes, from a twig-covered “bird’s nest” to a mirrored box that reflects the surrounding forest to a UFO that appears poised for touchdown.
Outback Upgrade • Tasmania, Australia
The swoop of the roofline at Saffire Freycinet—a 20-suite luxury hotel on the east coast of the Australian island of Tasmania—dramatically frames the rise and fall of the Hazards Mountains behind it. Designed by Tasmanian architectural firm Morris Nunn and Associates, the modern, organic structure offers stunning views at every turn.

Spanish 101 • New York, New York
Like a kiss for each cheek, a pair of Salvador Dalí’s Dalilips sofas greet expectant revelers as they enter Salon, the lounge at New York City’s Tribeca Grand Hotel. The distinctly European greeting is appropriate for the space, which has been transformed by designer Winka Dubbeldam into a permanent exhibition of work from 15 of Spain’s hottest design firms, including BD Barcelona Design Furnishings, Lladró and Nani Marquina. Conceived by Surface magazine publisher Richard Klein, the lounge was unveiled during New York Design Week.
