Spend a Night as a Jungle Castaway in Dominica

The Bamboo Treehouse is not the only place to sleep at the Rosalie Forest Eco-Lodge on the Caribbean island-country of Dominica. Guests can also choose to stay in a self contained cottage or in one of several cabins. There’s a secluded area where campers can pitch a tent. The lodge can arrange a local home stay too.

But of all those accommodations options the Bamboo Treehouse is the coolest.

Imagine where you’d sleep if you were stranded in a deserted section of jungle and then built yourself a shelter without any tools and with limited architectural knowledge. The Bamboo Treehouse is only slightly less primitive than that.

Yes, there’s a composting toilet nearby and sporadic electricity generated by a wind turbine above jungle canopy. But the basic wooden plank floors, bamboo walls and simple queen-sized bed covered by a mosquito net is very basic. Certainly it is a lot more austere than the $70 per night price tag would suggest.

But then what you are paying for at the Rosalie is not the construction quality of the treehouse. What you are really paying for is the seclusion.

Simply to getting to the Rosalie Forest Eco-Lodge reception center entails a rough car ride through the jungle. From there, the Bamboo Treehouse is a 15 minute hike through the virgin rain forest.

Once/if you find your way to the Bamboo Treehouse you’ll see no other signs of human life—you can’t hear any other guests or see any buildings. It is you (and perhaps your travel companion) in the middle of a flower-laden jungle, surrounded by birds and wildlife. Hang out on your little veranda or explore amongst the wonderful lakes, rivers and waterfalls that dot the Rosalie’s property.

As readers have probably worked out for themselves, a visit to the Rosalie Forest Eco-Lodge requires a sense of adventure. And booking yourself into a nice beach resort after your stay here is recommended. But any post-treehouse beach resort stay will likely fade from your memory in time. A night at the secluded Bamboo Treehouse—now that’s unforgettable.
