Stayed there recently wanting to try their 2 hat restaurant - accommodation great everything you could possibly need with absolute privacy thrown in!!! Highly recommended. The restaurant well that is another story! Supposedly 2 hats for their Thai restaurant but the banquet meal we had was at best mediocre. Lacking any of the typical Thai taste of sweet, sour and...

My husband and I were child free for 9 days due to our girls being away on school camps. So we decided to take some time out for ourselves. Spicers Tamarind Retreat was the perfect choice. No traffic and not noise other than the birds. We stayed 3 nights in total one night in the room with the bath which... More

We stayed in a forest view villa and it was beautiful. Nice fireplace and plenty of firewood. Beautiful bathroom with a bifold doors onto a private courtyard. It was totally refreshing and relaxing. We would love to visit again soon...

It's rare that you find a place that simply does everything well. We were greeted by the lovely Emma and Ashleigh who made us feel more than welcome. Our room was everything we expected, with north facing balcony featuring a day bed where we spent our afternoon reading in the winter sun. Our room was tastefully furnished with a king... More

We recently stayed 2 nights at Spicers Tamarind Maleny. The cabin was private and modern, the wood fire and outdoor tub fantastic on the cold evenings. Food, day spa and service all awesome. Thank you!

The staff at Spa Anise were warm, friendly and personable. We were allowed to take our time after the massages (in a twin room) and... More

Set in the lush Maleny Hills, Spicers Tamarind exceeded our expectations for a relaxing weekend away with old friends. The villas are quite new, modern and inviting and yet so private. The restaurant was exceptional and staff were fantastic.

I stayed for two nights in June 2014 with my elderly aunt (aged in her early 70s). We had a two bedroom villa which was just perfect - luxurious but unpretentious. The bathroom was superb - one of the nicest hotel bathrooms I have ever seen, and the bath itself was deep and long and very comfortable. We had dinner... More
