We stayed two nights in Satinash-Glass Terrace, secluded and luxurious. Magical views over the tree tops and up to the escarpment. Spent hours sitting on the deck just soaking it all in. King Bedroom was to die for....walls of glass put you at one with nature, perched above the forest floor. Ensuite had heated floor tiles...very nice. Big two person... More

My wife and I visited for 6 nights for our first wedding anniversary (3 nights in Pandorea - Glass terrace, 3 nights in Cedar Lodge - Luxury Lodge). Location is world class, beautiful rainforest. Service is just fantastic, everyone is friendly and helpful. The rooms are amazing, both comfortable and private, but still feel easily accessible. There are lots of... More

Really don't know where to start - this place was beautiful and intoxicating. We were lucky enough to be able to spend six wonderful nights here, three of those in 'Pandorea' and three in Cedar Lodge. Both lodges were simply stunning, just gorgeous. But it was Pandorea that stole our hearts, it was intimate and cosy with plenty of modern... More

We stayed in one of the one bedroom cabins and it was beautiful. Amazing location, wonderfully presented. Cabin was modern and clean, very nice decor. Lovely fire set up when we arrived with logs for two nights. Amazing spa bath with surrounding views of the rainforest you feel totally secluded. We also ordered food for the evening and breakfast. This... More

I had the absolute pleasure of staying at CCRR in the cedar lodge and I was incredibly impressed with everything that the retreat had to offer! The room was sensational at the atmosphere was beautiful, secluded and warm. The food was delivered fresh everyday and was delicious! The spa was huge and the view of the forest was amazing. We...

Sometimes, these ‘retreats’ leave you both ‘cold’ and light of pocket. Second rate ‘luxury’ items and poor maintenance is revealed only once you’ve forked out a small fortune to ‘rejuvenate your senses’ (or some such claim). Fortunately, Crystal Creek remains at the forefront of ‘chill out’ accommodation, with a knowing nod to the decadent, but also a clear understanding of... More

We have just returned from a 3 day break at the retreat and we loved every minute. This break was for our first wedding anniversary and birthday, so the peace and quiet was welcomed. From the moment we arrived our needs were catered for. Our luggage was drove to our cabin which was toasty warm as soon as we walked... More

There are no negatives at this wonderful retreat. The cabins are amazing with all the usual perks but the little extras like the outdoor hot shower in the rainforest and the glass walls in the bedroom that overlook the rainforest and mountains make this place worth the money you pay for it. We were lucky to have beautiful clear weather... More

My partner and I stayed in the Springbrook Mountain Lodge in June. It was really lovely, heated floor in the bathroom and heated towel racks (which was great for winter). The place was extremely clean and well kept.. The walking tracks are really pretty, however there is heaps of leeches up there! So make sure you put some spray on... More

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here for our last anniversary and it was absolutely amazing. We were treated to yummy breakfast hampers and a dinner with wine that was awesome. Room is first class and is completely stunning, double sided fireplace and candles everywhere. The heated plunge pool with deck was outstanding. Amenties were great (huge... More
