Was very much looking forward to a 2 hatted dining experience. Was sadly disappointed. Chose Asian Banquet and only the soup was ok. The larb tasteless, calamari curry ordinary, desserts made me gag. For a price tag of $265 for two it did not leave a pleasant taste. New chef from Pope Joan in Melbourne needs to overhaul the food.... More

Thank you for your recent feedback regarding your dining experience at The Tamarind. I am disappointed that you did not enjoy the Thai banquet menu that you selected and I am surprised by your response as it is considered a favorite among lovers of curries and traditional Thai dishes. Perhaps the degustation menu would have been more to your liking... More

This is a beautiful and peaceful property and we had a lovely weekend away from real life. The rooms were very clean, luxurious and private. The on-site restaurant served excellent food and the service was faultless. We would definitely recommend this retreat to others.

We had a really lovely relaxing stay at Spicers Tamarind at Maleny. Definitely recommend it for a weekend getaway. Room, spa and service were excellent ...and the dinner and breakfast were both superb. Combine with a rainforest walk at Mary Cairncross. Beautiful!

The service was great and even one of the staff members remembered our coffee order from last time, very impressive... You can go here for breakfast, morning tea, lunch and dinner. A lovely scenic view overlooking the lawn and... More

A great place to get away from it all and enjoy a bit of luxury amidst the serenity of a bush / rainforest setting. The cabin we had was fantastic and plenty of room even with 2 young kids. Relax by the pool was a great way to unwind as well!
