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.

We very much needed some relaxation time and we were definitely in the right place. From a much needed massage and spa treatment to fabulous food and service. Thank you Tamarind. You made our anniversary

Everything was excellent about Tamarind. Due to lack of our own organisation could not get into the Spa but it did look lovely. Food not quite what expected but it is personal taste, just not to my personal taste. Beautifully cooked and presented though.

A real treat - even if just for one night. The cabins are beautifully appointed and very private, the degustation is a superb dinning experience. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a romantic escape

Our first experience with a Spicers Resort, and was one of the best stays we've had, for relaxation, food, service. Excellent setting and location. Looking forward to trying another Spicers Resort went the opportunity arises.

Thank you again for making our weekend escape so special. A year ago we married at Tamarind and this weekend we celebrated our first wedding anniversary. The food, spa and accommodation were heavenly - we felt like the only people staying there. The outdoor pool is really relaxing as was our outdoor jaccuzzi. We really didn't want to leave....

Allison and Stuart, Always a pleasure to welcome back guests, especially those that have a special bond with the property such as yourselves, having married here. I apologise I was not there to welcome you personally, although I am sure the team looked after you. We look forward to helping you celebrate many more anniversaries and maybe a little escape...

I stayed at Spicers Tamarind Retreat with two girlfriends, for a girls trip, and we all wished we could have stayed longer. I cannot wait to go back! Driving from Brisbane in regular traffic only takes around 45-60 minutes. Once you arrive, you can't help but feel relaxed and welcomed. The staff are so genuine and lovely, they take excellent...

Was given a gift certificate for the night inc dinner and breakfast. If I was paying myself, the price would have pulled me up but, in saying that, the quality was very high making for a very enjoyable overnight stay. There was occasional sewerage smell from the septic systems at the restaurant and in some areas of the gardens which... More

Such a nice place to stay. I only wish i could have been there longer. The room was amazing! Heated floors and towel rails and the bath was seriously impressive. It would be an amazing place to visit over a long weekend in winter especially.
