We came to Escarpment Retreat for our Australia day weekend break. We stayed at Edge house with my kid and friends. It was the perfect place to take in the beauty and serenity of the Mountain. The property is perfectly located with majestic and breathtaking views over the top of cliff. Just about every window in the lovely home had... More

I was very disappointed with our stay at Escarpment. I booked this "retreat" for our 12th Anniversary based on all the rave reviews on trip advisor. I don't feel it is value for money at all. The room (Villa 1) smelt dusty and damp. It was quite dark and musty during the day and not a place I felt like... More

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.
