Last year my wife and I celebrated our twentieth wedding anniversary and wished to return to the spot where we honeymooned. So we looked on line and booked a BnB at Maleny and imagined cottages set in the grounds of a spot looking from the mountain range. In reality it was a large high-set home that was divided in to...

We have never advertised cottages, we are classy exotic Egyptian Theme en-suites & Sub-Penthouse located on a quiet mountain side with hill side Maleny views in the Village of Maleny clearly described on our website. We provide locally sourced certified organic dairy milk & alternatives & fresh healthy Mediterranean... More

I have stayed at a number of establishments around the world but none have been as exquisite @ Dalila's home/retreat. The room designs, the snacks the amazing breakfasts / flowers / bath salts were all superb & the hospitality fantastic! Thank you for a great 2 nights stay & I will be back :) Hayley

I recently stayed at this property alone. I had booked the room as a romantic get away for my boyfriend and I, but we ended up splitting up before hand. I am so glad I went alone as he would not have appreciated the beauty and serenity of the property. I read a number of different reviews before staying at... More

A quiet retreat with the best massage I have ever experienced. Loved the décor and the owners approach to guests. The breakfast was wonderful. I needed a little retreat like this that was so close to many other services, events and foods that I wanted to taste. I would return to Malaney and to the Egyptian Dream Retreat in a... More

I will highlight both the good and bad aspects of this accommodation. Firstly it is very falsely marketed on the webpage, and EXTREMELY overpriced. At almost $300 per night for the Isis Moon Sub Penthouse, we expected so much more than a self-contained granny flat underneath somebody's home in a suburban street. 'Absolutely your dream retreat' is absolutely not the... More

A gaping chasm lies between Delila's concept of her 'retreat' and reality for her guest. The Ra room is a small, chilly, room, (with ensuite) so over-furnished with mirrors and 'exotic' bric-a-brac that there is little space available for guests' possessions. Guests are not allowed to wear shoes, or to put a suitcase on the bed. Access involves an exposed... More
