A Treemendous Place

A new use for bottles and cake pedestals.

Somebody’s been doing drugs. Lots and lots of drugs. The psychedelic kind. That’s the easiest way to explain Treetanic, an Alice-in-Wonderland kind of place found in Utila, one of the outer islands of Honduras.

Treetanic has almost an acre of land filled with art forms covered with hundreds of recycled bottles, bottle caps, mosaics and glass stones. It’s dazzling. Narrow paths wind through pillars of arching cement covered with recycled champagne bottles. A free-standing ornament with four spines holds wind chimes that tinkle and sparkle in the wind. A grotto whose ceiling and walls are plastered with coral lead to four cabins where guests surely dream in technicolor.

Sweet dreams inside.

By evening Treetanic serves cocktails and other libations at its treetop bar. By night its neighboring restaurant, Jade Seahorse, serves mostly vegetarian dishes. It’s too early for dinner so Happy Times and Eclipse move on and leave this wonderful, whimsical place behind.

Art or altar? Or both?
