What are the best hammocks in 2023?

We think Tropilex hammocks from Hammock Heaven are easily the best, but how about a quick look at some others from around the web.

There are some interesting styles here. You will notice that other traditional style hammocks are much more expensive than ours. That is for the simple reason that we have cut out the middleman (or 2). We design and import our own hammocks direct from hammock manufacturers in Colombia, Brazil, El Salvador and India.

Feeling stressed, need some time out or just want to bask in the sun’s rays? Hammocks are a fun way to lounge outdoors, while gently swinging yourself to sleep.

First developed in the jungles of South America where they were used for sleeping above the wet ground, hammocks have come on leaps and bounds in the style stakes since then. Made from fabric, netting or rope, they were designed to be tied between two trees, but these days many come with their own stands – and, if not, the stands are easily available to buy separately. 

Singular options are great if it’s just for you, but there are also double and family designs available, too – plus ones with cushions, canopies and all manner of shapes and sizes. Swinging chairs, tents and even bed styles are all the rage and are growing in popularity as dreamy napping nooks for indoors as much as out. Then there are the portable options, which are ideal for taking away with you – and they’re not limited to tropical destinations, either! If you’re off camping then choose a model that’s light to carry and just as easy to pack away as it is to put up.

Hammocks with spreaders are a modern invention, designed to spread the weight load more evenly and in turn, making it easier to get in and out of the hammock. If you like to feel quite cocooned, you’ll want to go for an inline option (also called jungle or tropical hammocks), which are one of the most stable and comfortable, and allow you to sleep like a pea in a pod, surrounded by the hammock’s sides. 

Still undecided? We’ve pounded the pavement to find you a selection of good-looking favourites to help you kick back and swing your worries away. Here’s our pick of designs that hang way above the rest.


Comfort' Black Double Hammock

Free spirits will adore this comfortable black hammock, You lie more comfortably with more suspension cords!

The hammock spreads more easily through the use of additional suspension cords. The Tropilex hammocks, therefore, have additional cords so that you lie as comfortably as possible. This typical Colombian style of production is popularly called "Cadejo". The advantage is that the cords are not sewn onto the hammock. It also leaves less chance of snapping.

Wood & Black Edition' Rose XXL Hammock with Stand

Isn’t it great when someone designs a product and thinks of all the handy little touches that just make it so EASY to use – and then puts it at a beautifully affordable price? That’s what we thought when we saw Tropilex Black Edition Rose and stand combo, which is available in other colours as well as this Black Edition Gold. The wood of this stand has undergone a dipping bath. Because of this, it is stripped of unevenness. It is best to pickle it or put it in oil, but it is not necessary. If you do not do this, the stand will slowly turn grey. Compare it to a picnic table. This amazing wooden stand is made from FSC®-certified wood. The wood comes from fair forestry in Scandinavia

The 'Arc' is also easy to adjust with the chains supplied. This means that many hammocks can be hung in it.

'Rope' Black XXL Hammock

When you want a hammock for summer

The many openings of a knotted hammock offer plenty of ventilation. That feels much cooler than a woven hammock. The perforated cloth of the 'Rope' hammock is not knotted but woven. The fabric, therefore, feels fine, even on bare skin.

The 'Rope' is especially strong. Firstly, because the hammock is woven with thick cords instead of hundreds of thin threads. In addition, Tropilex does not use 1 rope, but 2 ropes to weave the cloth. That offers 40% more sturdiness than comparable hammocks!

Hang from a tree or buy a tripod stand separately, it’s suitable for one person at a time – but we wouldn’t want to share this outdoor hideaway anyway.
