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

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

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).
