Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat was an amazing find, truly a needle in a haystack. We were needing to book a relaxing retreat at the last minute and were expecting to find only substandard accommodation in the lead up to Christmas & New Year. However this place is truly a gem and excellent value for money. Each bungalow has all the... More

My husband and I chose to stay at Crystal Creek for our 10th wedding anniversary - and we were not disappointed! We booked into a luxury lodge, the Numinbah. This lodge was PERFECT. Numinbah Lodge is the highest of all lodges and offered absolute privacy. The view from the room was stunning. We loved how the scenery felt like part... More

We needed to get away from the extreme bustle of life for a while. We chose this place because it look far enough away from civilization but close enough if needed. This place is a hidden gem. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the rainforest view lodges. We looked out over the tree tops down the valley.... More

Our stay here was spectacular. The creekside cabin has an awesome bedroom surrounded by rainforest. Having a spa in the enormous bathroom at night looking through the skylight was spectacular, as was sitting on the balcony over looking the creek. We didn't try there meals which looked nice, because we only support organic produce so we brought our own food.... More

We stayed here this week for 3 nights in a gorgeous glass terrace cabin. Completely surrounded by the rainforest. No prying eyes! Fantastic spa in the ensuite, outdoor shower which was heaven after our bushwalk. We opted for the chillout package which included all our breakfasts, dinners and 1 picnic lunch. The meals were great. Homestyle meals delivered to our... More

This is my second review for Crystal Creek, and I hate doing them: it's hard enough to book in as is. But honestly, this is probably the best accommodation in Australia. We stayed for a full week this time, and I was curious to see if that would be too long. Nope. We did a lot of walking in the... More

This is an absolutely stunning location. You are surrounded in completely uninterrupted rainforest, natural creeks and wildlife. We spent 3 nights here for our honeymoon with the food packages. The food was delicious, and the staff managed to slip in and out to drop off meals without us noticing. We only seen 1 person on check out even with our... More

We had a lovely babymoon(trip before the baby arrives) here in October 2015. Very relaxing location and our cottage was fabulously luxurious. We loved the infinity pool, and the open fire. Its in a rainforest so we should have been prepared for a bit more rain than we were. The retreat is well within the reaches of easy day trips... More
