We stayed here for three nights and cannot say enough about this place. We were away for a short break without the kids and a bit of a spoil and booked this place on the strength of previous reviews on this sight and from a recoomendation from friend who had stayed previouisly. The rooms are incredible, huge and well appointed.... More

The Escarpment. I stayed at The Escarpment - Alpine Terrace Mt Tamborine QLD. First off, let me start by saying that my first impressions were great, the place was clean, the staff was very accommodating and professional. The hotel incorporates nature atmosphere into everything, the furniture, the environment and the whole concept of the building. It encompasses every part of... More

Independent kingdom in the peaceful mountain, Rainforest paradise on earth. Whole complex is surrounded by trees and natural vegetation and wildlife. This visit is a short break/getaway holiday for me and my girlfriend to relax due to the heavy workload I’ve got recently. (5-7 Dec 2014) I was staying in villa 4, the room was comfortable and clean, ultra-high roof... More

We stayed here on the recommendation of the accommodation that we were originally booked into which had to close for the weekend. In hindsight, we wish we had done a bit more of our own investigations before booking. While there was nothing wrong with our accommodation, it was nothing to rave about. Clearly from the reviews, lots of people have... More

The Escarpment is certainly a special place for myself and my Husband. Most relaxing atmosphere, indulgent, tranquil and rejuvenating. I will return and continue to return for my anniversary with my Husband in 2015.

Absolutely one of the best places I have stayed. We stayed in the Edge House which was beautiful, decadent and relaxing. The views from the balcony are amazing and sitting in front of the fire place of a night was very cozy. Will definitely go again.

A wonderfully relaxing experience, I highly recommend the Day spa and massage by Sandy. Beautiful spacious villas and luxurious in room spa bath for two. If you need to unwind this is definitely the place to go.

After a tough year with IVF treatment my fiancé and I headed to Escarpment for our 6 year anniversary. We hadn't had a holiday in at least 3 years and the whole experience was lovely. From the daily plumping of pillows and extra candles for romance to the resupplying of firewood, sublime breakfast, relaxing massages and beautiful views. We will... More

A very special exquisite place where heaven and earth met over the three days we were there. A pleasurable, peaceful and tranquil place where the rainforest sounds brought about total relaxation. The magic of the villa plus the superfluous enjoyment of a massage made the romantic interlude for dinner on the first night amazing. The addition to the holiday package... More
