The "Retreat" is in the suburbs. Nothing more than a house with a few extra pillows. My partner and I stayed for two nights, it was terrible. After the introduction and the nice blanket was put away in the cupboard (we were told it was too expensive and we might break it) we were told we could "make love" now.... More

Hi. Your review is a hoax you have not stayed here. Provide your name show your true identity for the coward that you are. We do not speak with our guests in such manner, maybe you are a competitor or just a compulsive liar who wishes to bring attention to yourself. Best wishes. More

Egyptian Dream Retreat is our favourite guesthouse to stay at when we go away to the hinterland for some well needed rest and relaxation. It only took us about 5 minutes to walk from our room to the cafes and shops on the main street. Dalila went to great lengths to make us feel welcome and had left some beautiful... More

This lady has fully opened up my energy channels. Set me on my path. I truly believe she has the magic, or whatever you call this. I was always skeptic about this stuff... Stumbled upon her by chance, looking for a massage. Ended up releasing some amazing 'energy channels' in me. I thank Dalila every day. All in all, great... More

On arrival greeted by Dalila who was courteous and very welcoming. Walking into Isis penthouse it was like walking into another world ' stunning '. Delicious chocolates, flowers, pure mountain air, scenic views, very relaxing. Massages,facials and readings highly recommend. We are definitely returning back.

Having spent over $500 on two nights stay I would not recommend. Having been told the room wasn't ready at 2pm, to then seeing the "sub-penthouse" is on the lower level of someone's house. You can hear the dog barking most of the time, people walking around above you from 4am, there is two chairs seated close to the car... More

Hi. Reviewer. Your review is far from the truth. You are upset because you were asked not to smoke indoors, to stop loud noises, music night & day, not to have unregistered guests visit, stop flooding spa & shower areas. Your behaviour here was intolerable maybe you should have gone to a cheap motel. This is a most relaxing, elegant... More

Dalila is a special running a very special accommodation. Egyptian Dream is just that - a place where a particular couple spent a magic couple of nights and days. Maleny is a beautiful town and a perfect setting for Dalila's Retreat. I experienced first hand one of her magical massages. She is the perfect hostess, ensuring she is on hand... More

Dalila is a truly kind and generous spirit who made our romantic weekend away just lovely! The personal touches such as chocolates and strawberries were divine! We weren't sure what a Mediterranean breakfast involved, so were provided with vouchers to a local cafe on our first morning before deciding to try it on our second - and it was lovely!!... More
