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

We booked 2 villas side by side with friends for a long weekend. While the property was quiet and peaceful it shouldn't be called a retreat. There were no facilities to prepare a meal - or even a snack due to limited utensils - e.g. no sharp knife or chopping board.1 villa did have a microwave (though no suitable cooking/warming... More

The villas are beautiful. Beds are luxurious and there is lots of space. My husband and I really needed a peaceful break. We have spent 4 days here and will leave completely restored tomorrow. We had massages at the day spa which were really good. We used the Gold Class Cinema which was fun but the movie selection is quite... More

Hi there, thank you for your review. We have at least a couple of hundred DVDs on the shelf plus latest releases (Dallas Buyers Club, Tracks etc). The newest ones are very popular and get borrowed quickly which is perhaps why you mentioned that the selection is limited. As for internet, the mountain (and many rural areas of Australia) is...
