We spent our 1st wedding anniversary at Spicer's Tamarind courtesy of a wedding gift we had been unable to use earlier. Spicer's were very kind and generous in allowing us to extend the period of our voucher on more than one occasion. The cabins are fairly secluded, not quite as much as some other places we have been, but enough.... More

Just spent two nights at Spicers Tamarind - couldn't ask for anything more - it was impeccable. Great food, professional attentive staff, beautiful surroundings and total luxury - would certainly recommend to anyone - especially families with teenage children - they had a ball !!!

Instant relaxation in a tranquil, serene location. Parts of dinner were excellent but one meal was perfectly cooked but a little bland...still above ordinary though. This resort should be the benchmark though for staffing a resort. Others take notice and learn.

Put some spice back into your life at this delightful retreat. First class service, venue, food and wine have enticed me to enjoy a second stay here, and both times I have been extremely impressed. I would definitely stay here or at another Spicers retreat again.

Stayed for three nights with the wife (plus two other couples in their own villas). The weather was perfect - blue skies, hot days, cool nights - which definitely helped as it allowed us to explore the grounds and enjoy the five minute walk to breakfast/dinner (which would have felt very different in the rain!). Our one bedroom villa (actually... More

Very nice and spacious cabins with a little courtyard and your own spa, all this in a beautiful and tranquil setting with waterfall and sweeping lawns. Very friendly staff, excellent Asian inspired cuisine in their restaurant and a fantastic hot/cold breakfast (choose one hot dish from a menu the night before) that is brought to your cottage in the morning...

My friend and I went here for a two night stay. We stayed in a two bedroom villa as I also had my 8 week old baby with me. The villas are lovely, beds very comfortable and so quiet at night. Dinner in the restaurant was beautiful (save that one of the chefs put chilli oil all over a salad... More

Beautifully set in the idyllic Maleny countryside. Rooms are perfectly appointed with everything you could want. Food is amazing, the breakfast was especially good. Very expensive but we felt it was worth it. A perfect, private spot for a romantic getaway.
