We stayed here one night in a family room. Unfortunately our beds were very uncomfortable, our child's bed squeaked loudly every time he moved. Ours was hard and lumpy, but we were only staying one night, if we were staying longer we would have asked for another room. However the whole experience was still lovely. Set in the beautiful rainforest,... More

While on an Outback Spirit Tour to the Top End recently, we stayed in The Heritage, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was the room, and food produced excellent, but all the staff were friendly and helpful, and all had wonderful smiles on their faces as they assisted everyone. Of particular note was Anthony, one of the very friendly waiters.... More

Vicki and the staff were terrific. Wonderful hospitality and food with clean, comfortable accommodations. Beautiful location with much to see and do in the region. The lodge is well away from the beaten path so you get a real feel of the rainforest. We'll be back! 5 stars*****

This was our first trip to the Daintree and we did not know what to expect. The Lodge was great. The room was comfortable, and right near the swimming hole. Which is awesome. We walked the grounds looking at the various animals; getting some nice pictures. Vicky was awesome, making calls to various tour operators letting them know where we... More

We spent 5 nights in a family cabin at the lodge. Cabins are not fancy, but are clean and comfortable. Cabins are "duplexes" but we had no neighbors of the human sort. There was a fair amount of animal activity at night, and the occasional mango dropped on the roof by the small marsupials that frequent the garden. The gardens... More

Arriving at Heritage, we were smug in our choice of accommodation. The cabins are right in the rainforest, which is exactly what we wanted and had been dreaming about for our first trip to the Daintree. The cabins are simple (I hate spa baths!) well appointed and clean. I loved that we could lay on our bed in the late... More

Loved our one night stay at Heritage Lodge & Spa; beautifully tranquil and fabulous meal at the restaurant over looking the creek. The sights and sounds of the forest were all around and it was an amazing experience. Staff were very friendly and helpful and service was excellent. Thank you Vicky for such a lovely stay

I recently stayed at the Heritage Lodge with my husband and two kids. The lodge is tucked away deep in the forest in a beautiful spot next to a stunning little creek with a natural swimming hole. For us, staying at the Heritage really gave us an authentic rainforest experience. There was plenty of wildlife to see including the resident... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Step back in time and experience the magic of the ‘Heritage Lodge & Spa’ in the Daintree. Just two hours North of Cairns, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks join. This section of the Daintree rainforest, is where the world's most ancient rainforest meets the reef. Wake to the call of birds in one of our rainforest cabins and enjoy the clear pure air of the Daintree. All 20 cabins in our boutique lodge are set within serenity of the rainforest and are perfect for bird, butterfly or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Take a swim with jungle perch and turtles in untouched crystal clear Cooper Creek, which winds through the lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea. As soon as you set foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home. From the smells of fresh bread drifting from the kitchen to the warm welcome from the attentive local staff. Our international chef will tantalise your tastebuds with Mediterranean style quality food using the finest of local ingredients. Dine with the bandicoots for dinner and enjoy breakfast and lunch overlooking the magical Cooper Creek. Let our staff share their local knowledge of the area and assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination. Or simply sit back, relax and enjoy a massage in our day spa, whilst enjoying the sounds of the rainforest. We would love to host your family here at Heritage Lodge & Spa in the Daintree. Family areas; swimming pool and rainforest walks; a fantastic children’s menu and vast array of wildlife to enjoy, the Heritage in the Daintree is just one big playground. The private setting of our rainforest cabins, is the ideal place for couples to unwind and enjoy a glass of wine or a rejuvenating cup of Daintree tea. Private swimming holes and rainforest walks, are just part of the experience, and our day spa is the perfect way to enjoy a romantic weekend.The Heritage Lodge & Spa, offers five star service in a magical and rejuvenating environment. Staying at Heritage is more then just a holiday, it is an experience! ... more   less
