Singapore is all set to welcome its first ever wildly unconventional resort that allows guests to relax in the lap of nature in its seed-pod-shaped treehouses. A sneak peak of the same was unveiled by Mandai Park Holdings showing what the much-awaited Mandai eco-resort would look like.

The resort boasts a "biophilic" design that integrates the resort's infrastructure with the natural surroundings.

The standard family rooms in the resort will offers breathtaking views into the rainforest while the 24 elevated seed-pod shaped treehouses will allow guests to live amongst trees surrounding the retreat.

In total the resort, which spreads across 4.6-hectare site, will have 338 rooms including hotel rooms, treehouses, and elevated cabins.

According to MPH's statement, the design concept has been thought with an aim to be "sympathetic" to the existing vegetation, tree lines, and natural topography.

In order to allow passage of wildlife, sections of the resort will be elevated several meters above the ground.

The resort will be "super low energy", sustainable, and environmentally-friendly. The rooms will feature natural ventilation, solar panels and mixed-mode air conditioning, while chilled water will be used instead of traditional air conditioning compressor units to cool the treehouses.

The resort will also encourage the guests to cut down on energy and water consumption and will thereby allow them to play a part in the conservation efforts as well.

There will be several specially curated activities at Mandai's wildlife parks and nature-themed indoor attractions like guided nature walks, behind-the-scenes programs, and hands-on experiences.

The resort, aimed to offer unprecedented yet sensitive access to nature, is set to open in 2023.
