The service at the Escarpment was second to none, everything is thought of and guests are well looked after. The rooms are absolutely first class, offering the peace and privacy couples seek. The unbelievable part is the package prices, it's worth so much more, such value for money. Look no further than the Escarpment for your romantic getaway, we have... More

We had a wonderful 2nd honeymoon and were treated like royalty by the staff. Everything from the location and the villas to the food and staff were 10 out of 10. Very intimate retreat.

When Dave and I started dating, he surprised me with a night away at the Escarpment. We had champagne in the spa, curled up infront of the fire, then snuggled up in the huge four-poster bed. The next morning we had a beautiful breakfast prepared for us, then went walking in the gorgeous gardens. The whole stay was very romantic... More

I have never written reviews before but thought this place is absolutely worth mentioning. My boyfriend took me here for my birthday and we had the most amazing time. The villa is so lovely and romantic and we just loved the spa and fire. The breakfasts were delicious and the attention we got from the manager/chef was spot on. It... More

I will pass on your review to Carolynne, who prepared your delicious breakfasts, which is... More

We had the weekend packagae which included dinner for one night and a massage. The dinner was at a restaurant a few kilometres away and the food was so lovely that we went... More

After a long spa bath a well cooked dinner was delivered to our door. we highly recommend this place for a retreat and... More

I recently stayed at The Escarpment for two nights and found it a relaxing experience. My villa was surrounded by lush greenery, while the interior was extremely spacious. One can open the door to the patio for a lovely view of the environment, but watch out for the native wildlife such as lizards and scrub turkeys - I was content... More

Open bottle of champagne in fridge left by the housekeeper. The roof leaked onto the couch. Only one towel each and we had to wait until 3pm the next day for a dry one. The spa had not been flushed through with the proper cleaning products and was full of other peoples scum. The lizards kept setting off the sensor... More

Yes water can sometimes come into any building when the rain is hard enough. This is especially the case in a rainforest surrounded by rainforest trees. It would not be in anyone's interest to have a roofing expert repair a roof and no it is not possible to have someone repair a roof when it is raining. Housekeepers spend on... More
