Expensive. But worth the money. Truly magnificent. Hardly saw another soul for entire stay; even though place was full. So very quite and relaxing. Enjoyed some wonderful food and wine. Relaxed in spa a LOT. Managed a few rainforest walks. Perfect stay. Watch out for leeches in the river!

We stayed for five nights in a Creekside Bungalow (Quandong). This is a truly rare place where the reality exceeds the expectation. One of the most beautiful and peaceful places we have been. The accommodation was wonderful (though we did sneak a peak at the Mountain Lodge and will book there next time - it looked amazing) the atmosphere of... More

As a frequent traveller, I find myself questioning more and more how some hotels have achieved their supposed 5* status, and often find myself disappointed with staff or amenities. Crystal creek was the perfect antidote! From the moment we arrived, to when we left (kicking and screaming!) our stay here was fabulous. The peace and serenity of the resort is... More

My husband and I decided to stay here for some R&R on the first 3 nights of our honeymoon, before we left for a month in Europe. We absolutely loved the idea of being in a 5 star accommodation but without having to see anyone or go anywhere after the hustle and bustle of our wedding. The location is gorgeous,... More

This is a property of seldom seen quality located in wonderful surroundings. The lodge is an open space which means the toilet is cannot be locked up. Minor problem and our only point of critic. Swimmingpool is exactly the right temperature to float for hours no matter the weather outside.The walks trough the forests are clealy marked and not too... More

We were doubtful the previous reviews would be accurate but they absolutely were! This is an amazing place. Not only a perfect locale for honeymooners ( trust me Venice or Paris are not worth the arm & leg they cost to travel to and are far more appreciated later in life) but for any couple who enjoy spending time together....

We just spent 3 nights over Christmas in Numinbah Lodge it was perfect, if you really want to getaway from it all. We self-catered which suited us and there was all we needed to do this. The lodge is beautifully appointed, great plunge pool, the most wonderful views of the valley and rain- forest. We went for a great walk... More

Got surprised by my husband for our 1 year wedding anniversary and my goodness did he get it right! The PERFECT place for romance, unwinding and just reconnecting! Everything was beyond expectation and I so wish we will one day go back to this special place!

Stayed for 3 nights with my partner as a surprise for our anniversary!! We stayed in the Kamala cabin and had such an amazing time! It is soooo private and you feel as though you are the only ones there in the middle of the rainforest. Waking up each morning (in the most comfiest bed I have slept in) hearing... More

This is one of the best upmarket rainforest retreat locations I have been to. Service, food and all else was superb. Massively relaxing, felt totally re-energised after an all-too-short stay. Ideal for couples seeking quality time. The walk up the back to the look-out is well worth it (if you are fit enough) but the natural ambience around the grounds... More
