A wonderfully relaxing experience, with wonderful food that just took the whole experience up another level. We will recommend your resort to friends and family. We have even paid for our hard working son and daughter in law to have gourmet experience!

Well worth it. Very friendly staff. We stayed in a Forest view Villa which was very peaceful and private. Wood Fireplace was a nice touch at night time. Restaurant is a excellent treat. The Duck was to die for. Will stay again.

Every couple must try a Spicers retreat at some time. The Tamarind was a very quiet and relaxing location, with excellent service. The centerpiece was the Tamarind Restaurant which excelled in every way - exciting menus, great food and wonderful service. Will definitely stay at a Spicers resort again.

We loved our recent stay at the Tamarind Retreat. The grounds were lovely, the staff were friendly and helpful, the food was sensational. We couldn't have been happier! As a couple keen to escape crowds, the Maleny location was perfect. We'll definitely be back.

A truly relaxing and enjoyable experience is provided with great service and wonderful food. From the lovely breakfasts to the amazing dinners and the fantastic picnic and BBQ hampers, the food is sensational. The rainforest and waterfalls make for a back-to-nature experience. The cabins are well setup and luxurious - everything is truly amazing.
