I shared a video tour of the Tree Top Loft in one of my post here but just in case you've missed it, you could also view it on my YouTube account. I've attached an audio clip to the video this time round so instead of hearing the incessant chirping and screeching of insects, you would be greeted with jazzy tunes.
Join me for a photo tour in Part 1 of Staycation at the Tree Top Lofts - Virtual Tour!
I love this roomy bag a lot. It saw me through my short trips and beach getaways.
We did not know that the Tree Top Lofts was under the exclusive check-in and waited quite a bit at the reception counter before somebody directed us to the correct counter. See, there is no sign of "Tree Top Lofts" on the signage at all.
Once the check in procedures were done, we hopped onto a buggy with our personal butler and soon reached a nondescript opening to a pathway. There was just a small little sign pointing to the lofts and if I were walking along that road, I would not even have known the hidden treasure along that path. We were told that it was part of the hotel's marketing strategy (or the lack of) not to publicize excessively on the Tree Top Lofts since there were only 2 lofts available and they wanted the lofts to remain exclusive. I hadn't quite expected a "tree house" to have a lift so imagine my surprise when I saw a lift.
That was the other loft viewed from our outdoor platform. We enquired if there were anyone staying and the butler answered that he was not supposed to reveal. We guess the answer was a "yes" since kh opted for the higher storey but we got the lower one.
Welcome to Angsana Loft!
The main door opened to a spacious living room. That's Kh noodling around with his iPad and watching cable channels.
To the immediate right of the main door was the "bar counter".
A passageway linked the living room to the bedroom.
To the right of the passageway was where we placed our bags. Isn't that quite a bit for just a 2D1N stay? It is always a hassle to prepare for water activity... sets of clothes... sets of shoes...
It was the first time using this Coach sling bag and I love it to bits. My usual sling bag is more ruggard looking and so I'm glad I got this at a huge discount for occasions when I need a slightly dressier sling bag to complement my outfit.
To the left of the passageway was the wardrobe.
Panning right from the previous photo was the humongous bathroom-- my favourite place of the whole loft!
I adore the elegant feel on one side...
...blending in unison with the woody rustic feel on the other side.
A personal dislike was the lack of power points in the bathroom and that there were no other mirrors in the whole loft except the ones in the bathroom.
A mirror selfie shot with kh photobombing.
Though I wouldn't get one for my own home, I love canopy beds.
I love the canopy so much that by nightfall, I realized I did not have a shot of me with the bed that I insisted kh took one for me.
There was a simple but sleek area for work.
Such a unique lampstand.
We could never quite escape from modernity and technology even in such a rustic place.
Being atop a tree with the buzzing and screeching of crickets, we felt like we were immersed into nature. As much as possible, the Tree Top Lofts is a sustainable project as evidence from how the lofts are built around nature and accommodating it.
Exploring the platform that surrounded the loft, we realized that we were not too far off from modernity. We could see another hotel just opposite, hear the screams from the patrons at the Adventure Cove...
... and even espied cable cars above us...
... as we waved to the people up there wondering if they could see us.
I would usually finish those fruits which are easy to eat but this time round, we only touched the grapes.
I did not like the slippers provided. They made slappy noises. I prefer a pair of snug bedroom slippers but I guess these were made for walking on the outdoor platforms too.
This outfit is available from my shop Fleurfaerie.
Since this is a wedding anniversary staycation, how could kh and I not have a proper photo together right? These were taken using the Wondercam app on my iPhone without any manual editing. While they look great on the small iPhone screen, I cringe when they are this big. Urgh... it looks super edited when enlarged.
Perhaps an anigify of fun shots taken using my camera's multiple shots mode makes a better couple shot. We did the poses spontaneously but I tried very hard to see what kh was doing from the corner of my eye and mimicked.
Part 2 would be about our amazing dinner at Forest 森. My mouth is watering right now as I recall the delicious food.
