My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed. Spicers Tamarind goes the extra mile, and it's the finishing touches that make it so great. From the plush carpet (the softest I have ever felt), luxury bedding and the private cedar hot tub, this place just keeps on giving. The food is scrumptious and innovative,... More

Stayed kinda on business and had 2 bed villa. Very nice with amazing bathtub and 'rain shower' Food was excellent. In particular the 2 course breakfast. I had the halloumi frittata and it was devine. The museli is made onsite and wonderful. Seasonal changes in the menu and tastes amazing

Just spent 3 days here for a business conference and cannot fault the Spicers experience and their great staff. Rooms and grounds very well presented and maintained. The Asian themed dining is definitely worth a return visit. Must congratulate the team member who took coffee orders for a table of 13 without notes and got it right each morning.

We stayed at Spicers for 2 nights in April in a 2 bedroom villa. I have to say it is very luxurious and the soft furnishings are devine. I can't wait to come back for our anniversary.

We stayed at the Retreat overnight and it just happened to be on a day of heavy rain and wind gusts. There was no cover from the car park to reception. Could sit in the car and hope that the rain would ease of run through the heavy rain. Checking in was smooth - thank you, Rebecca. We went straight... More

This recent stay was in fact for business however this time I got to stay in one of the one bedroom villas (having previously stayed in a 2 bedroom one). To say that the villa's are absoslute luxury would be an understatement. From the hot tub, fire place and general amenities, the villas are a treat to stay in. The... More
