With its magnificent bamboo structure, this eco-house is ideal for a honeymoon or double couples’ getaway. It can sleep up to four guests, with a double bed in both of its bedrooms. The two bedrooms also have their own en suite bathrooms, ensuring even more privacy. Then there’s the large living room, with ample seating space and fantastic views of the forest canopy.

Though this Airbnb may seem remote, loads of local restaurants are a short walk away – which is helpful, as the villa itself only has a simple kitchen with a fridge and stovetop. Other amenities include a small private swimming pool, a communal kitchen and restaurant, Wi-Fi, and air conditioning. The property even provides natural insect repellent in case of any mosquitos or other bugs.
