This was by far one of the most enjoyable getaways I have had. The staff were always happy and willing to help and stop for a chat. The villas were incredible, very well kept and clean. The area was stunningly landscaped and going for a walk around the grounds revealed fruit trees, waterfalls and wildlife. I will definitely be going... More

We recently experienced a birthday celebration weekend at the Escarpment Retreat after deciding on the location from previous reviews and would like to confirm both the property and service are definitely deserved of the high rating. On arrival we were met with a complimentary champagne and felt very welcome by all staff throughout our stay. We found the best thing... More

This little getaway was our babymoon before our new arrival joins us in a couple of months and we couldn't have chosen a better location. The villa was beautifully decorated with lots of wood and had a lovely warm feeling. The log fire was a great... More

Such a peaceful location and romantic room setting. It was a perfect place to reconnect with my partner and have some alone time together. The breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly.

We stayed in villa three with an amazing bathroom (wonderful spa bath), beautiful and delightfully comfy four poster bed, fireplace, and little balcony with a frog pond complete with waterfalls. The champagne and chocolate on arrival were delicious as was breakfast. The walk down lovers lane and the view is not to be missed. I would be back here in... More

Great setting atop the beautiful Mt Tamborine. Within walking distance to some excellent wineries and restaurants. The accommodation sets the scene for a romantic getaway or just a chance to unwind. Lovely staff!

We recently moved to the Gold Coast and decided to celebrate my wife's birthday at Mount Tamborine. We had no idea about suitable lodgings and surfed the web hoping to find a good place to stay . Well, I can now say that sometimes pictures do tell the truth because staying at the Escarpment Retreat is truly a beautiful experience... More
