Fancy gently rocking to sleep on the waves? Or waking up in a treehouse? Or standing in a homely kitchen with a mountain view that you’ve never seen before? Travellers today are adventurous and are looking beyond staying in hotels. Instead, they are looking for off-the-beaten-path accommodation as it adds to their travel experience.
Here are some types of accommodation that travellers are taking to satisfy their wanderlust:
1. Keep it classy in a guest house
Guest houses offer cheaper rates, personalised services, quicker check-out times, and above all, an authentic living experience. Tegal Panggung Guest House, Jogjakarta is a blend between classic Javanese architecture and modern minimalist influences, this is the perfect getaway for family holidays, as they venture out to explore the former royal capital of Indonesia will be a breeze for family travellers. The Pavilion would be great for a cosy family experience.
2. Escape life in a villa
When we travel in groups, a villa is definitely cheaper, while being relaxing and getting you to the heart of any country. Aquila Nova Retreat in Melbourne, Australia is a quiet retreat as you stroll through the pristine rainforest and reconnect with your loved ones in this lush villa, nestled in the tranquillity of beautifully landscaped gardens and situated in the heart of the Danenong Ranges National Park. For a quiet evening in, roast marshmallows with family or friends around the fireplace.
3. Channel your inner Tarzan in a tree house
These are no longer just rickety lumber crafted into backyards, but provide an escape into nature while giving you a perspective from up there. Rumah Pohon Tree House in Bali is situated in Nusa Penida, an island away from the crowded Denpasar, this tree house is the perfect nest for a tranquil, intimate getaway with your loved one.

Take a walk on the beach and enjoy a variety of activities that are located close to this oasis.
6. Live the high life in a yacht

After a complete refurbishment and a technical refit, this historical yacht is now available for private bookings!
