If peace, nature, comfort and easy access are your requirements then Sweetwater Lodge is the answer. The beautifully designed and decorated cabins are just the beginning with their outdoor modern kitchen with open views, polished floors and indoor/outdoor shower and spa. Walk to the swimming hole or into the rainforest. A few minutes drive to Mount Molloy or Julatten then... More

We stayed for a couple of nights in August 2014. The cabins are beautiful and very cleverly designed. The owners (Wendy and Glenn) are great and very hands-off unless you need something. Inside, Glenn has done much of the fit-out, which is beautifully and cleverly done. The result is the cabins are very comfortable for a few nights stay, and... More

I fully agree with everything that has been written here previously about Sweetwater Lodge. It is a heaven of peace and quiet, ideal to recover from lingering jet lag... and from the hustle and bustle of Cairns. The owners Wendy and Glenn are both very welcoming and discreet: you'll be left alone unless you request help or information. A few... More

If you want to relax, really relax, be comfortable and wake up and go to sleep with nature and without mobile phone coverage to annoy you, sweetwater lodge is the bees knees. beautifully designed lodges, birds, animals, the sound of running water from the creek lulling you to sleep and gently waking you up. a wonderful dream

We spent 7 nights at Sweetwater Lodge and it was exactly what we dreamt of or even more. Sweetwater was a very well placed and well equipped quiet retreat with beautiful surroundings. Our cottage was superbly designed it was both practical and attractive. We felt far away from busy city life or crowded holiday resorts. On the other hand everything... More

We spent 3 nights here at Sweetwater Lodge after a week in Port Douglas. It ticked all the boxes: lovely welcome from Wendy, with helpful info; superb setting with stunning scenery; the cabins are a great mix of rustic charm and modern design; a sense of seclusion surrounded by nature; attractive walking trails; swimming in the creek, and we loved...

Beautiful, thoughtfully designed accommodation, with true indoor/outdoor flow! The two cottages are quite private and the owners take every effort to make guests comfortable and to find and recommend places and activities of specific individual interest. We, for instance, are bird watchers, and Wendy arranged a great birding guide and also offered good advice for the rest of our N... More

WOW. the lodges are fully equiped and modern but feel like they belong in this beautiful natural haven. We booked for two nights and had to stay for 3 we couldn't tear ourselves away. We saw the platypus on sunset down at the swimming hole and the water dragon frightened the living daylights out us when it took off to... More

My partner and I spent three wonderful days at this beautifully appointed retreat. The location in Julatten is fabulous for those wishing to get away from beach crowds or heat. During our stay the air was clear and the temperature was just magic. Our lodge (one of two) was cleverly designed and the appointments showed that no expense had been... More

Away from the heat of the coast, just half an hours drive into the mountains from Port Douglas you will find Sweetwater Lodge, where you can relax in the cool of the rainforest air. I spent a wonderful few days at this stylish retreat in one of the architect designed Lodges, with its handmade wooden fitted interior, and pure cotton... More
