Highly recommend for those looking to rejuvenate with the sound of kookaburras, rain on a tin roof and private villas. The service was exceptional from booking to departure. We were immediately at home with music playing in the room, cedar hot tub ready to use and fireplace ready to light. The detail of natural body products and herbal tea selection... More

This was our second visit and it was just as good as the first. Highly recommend the villas with the hot tubs, the views and sounds of the waterfall is so relaxing. Staff are excellent and very accommodating. Had the Banquet and the 5 Course Degustation, both were incredible. Will be back.

My wife and I attended my sisters weeding reception at this venue, with many of the guests choosing to stay the night. WOW. Our 1 bedroom, kin size bed was extremely comfortable with views over the bus and manicured lawns. No to forget the exhilarating hot tub spa on our private balcony, again overlooking the bush. Ooo La La

We loved our stay at Spicers Tamarind! The service is fantastic, all the staff are extremely helpful, knowledgeable and go out of their way to accommodate guests. The food is divine, we did the degustation and it was fantastic. The Falls Villa are fantastic, Villa 3 was very private!

Spicers Tamarind Retreat is just so quiet and peaceful. We can enjoy our privacy amongst a lush green garden with abundant birdlife. The walks are enjoyable and the ever present sound of Gardner's Falls is nature's music. Staff are plentiful and quietly efficient as the grounds and buildings are well maintained.

The Tamarind resort is one of the best I have ever stayed at. The staff are excellent and personal. They will always address you by name and this is a wonderful touch I have never seen at any other hotel. The food was exquisite and matching with wines was a delight.

What an absolute relaxing, comfortable and value for money stay. The villa was private, clean with a fabulous outlook. The coffee machine in the room was welcomed and the cedar hot tub was a great way to end the day. The restaurant food and service also of an excellent standard. We will be back.
