This retreat was absolutely lovely. We spent three nights here during our honeymoon and we were so relaxed and happy in our newlywed bliss! What made it so special was that we had so much room to spread out and yet we had 100% privacy. The house and surrounds are so clean and well kept and it was just such... More

A stunningly beautiful getaway! We, my partner and I, had the most wonderful five day interlude at Misty Mountain retreat you could ever imagine. What a delightful spot. The natural beauty of Australian rainforest combined with creative luxury accommodation at its finest. The champagne when we arrived was a nice touch. We can’t wait to get back to our little... More

Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat was our first stop. The 4 nights spent there were amazing. To escape the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and to spend it in a tropical rainforest was nothing short of ultimate peacefulness. Spending the days wandering the creek and gardens was truly beautiful. Even in rainy weather, it was still warm and the... More

Misty Mountain Rainforest Retreat. The first thing that hits you is the peace, how we loved the peace, you’re encircled by what seems like impenetrable walls of plant life, dwarfed by giant palms and flora of every description. You become aware of the river stumbling and giggling through the rocks on its journey to who knows where. Drive down into... More

I'll start with the only bad thing about Misty Mountains. You just feel very very sad knowing that you have to leave this place. We couldn't pick more gorgeous, romantic, special, private and unique place for our wedding and honeymoon. It was the best vacation ever. The most relaxing and inspiring. Total privacy, breathtaking nature. You just become part of... More

The best holiday my partner and I have ever had - the scenery is breathtaking. The perfect location for a quiet getaway, honeymoon, romantic retreat, or just to rejuvenate the soul surrounded by nature at its finest. We spent 3 nights at Misty Mountains, and I really wished we had stayed longer. We will definitely be coming back. No matter... More

My new husband and I could not have chosen a better location for our small and intimate wedding last September 2013! From the moment you enter this stunning tropical rainforest retreat I had a feeling of true serenity and a feeling that I was so luck to experience such a beautiful surreal place. The wonderful service provided to us from... More

amazing :-) beautiful and peaceful in the most amazing rainforest location. A perfect location for a wedding/honeymoon if you are the kind of person who doesn't like to follow the crowds and walk in everybody else's footsteps. Hosts were helpful and welcoming, providing everything we needed. We especially liked how well equipped the whole bungalow was, making our stay that... More

We just had a beautiful week at Misty Mountains. Stunning weather and absolute privacy made for a relaxing stay. Our private dinner from a chef from Ochre was impressive and delicious. Sharon kindly sourced high quality produce for us for our stay, and she understood how high quality food was a must. We will definitely return.

We enjoyed Misty Mountains, in particular relaxing, using the outdoor fire by the rainforest stream and also zooming around in the golf buggy! It is also quite special to be left, just the two of us, in an environment such as this. Although the owners are close-by if needed (as it was we didn't so didn't see or hear from... More
