Or maybe you want a a luxurious tent, a hilltribe home, or a catamaran. The option is all yours.

2. Charming Hillside Luxury “Cave” in Koh Phangan
This rather luxurious “cave” artfully combines granite, wood and earth. While the earth bag walls elegantly fill gaps between large boulders, the double roof structure is elliptic in shape and rests on two massive Sandalwood poles, which previously served as main masts on a sailing boat. Warm natural light finds its way in through down lights and a large glass front. Corners are entirely absent, and a feeling of peace and tranquility prevails. The villa features a large stylish outdoor kitchen that overlooks the surrounding jungle. It comes fully equipped (stainless steel kitchenware), but instead of electrical appliances you will find a wood fired brick dome (pizza) oven on the kitchen counter. (www.airbnb.com/rooms/154308)

This air-conditioned tent is located near the river in Mae Sot so you can relax with nature and swim in clean water. There is a fridge, TV and minibar and private bathroom in the tent area.
4. Hilltribe Secluded Cabin in Nature, Chiang Mai
