We spent 4 weeks in Australia, traveling all over staying 2-5 nights in each place. This was the “worst” place we stayed. Why? The front desk staff was unreliable. It started with a very long wait at check in, though there was just one person ahead of us and two staff members behind the counter. The property is beautiful. The... More

A luxury lodge in a spectacular setting. Well worth the cost, stay for a minimum of 3 nights and enjoy the walks, swim in the billabong or try kayaking, take a yoga class and relax and enjoy the Daintree Rainforest. Service is exceptional from the friendly and attentive staff. The food is excellent with a well thought out menu and... More

It was an awesome experience. Beautiful hotel, nice people, very clean rooms and good food. We were very pleased by our tour that was arranged by the hotel. It was an extraordinary day and our tourguide was so knowledgeable person. The only thing that we did not like is that there was no internet in the room.

We had lunch here so this is not a rating on staying a night but going off the professional and friendly service we had I don't think you would have any issues. Great dining with the most comfortable dinner seats I have sat in. The place is stunning and you can sit in the beauty and have a nice meal... More

Silky Oakes has a stunning aspect in the rainforest, and can be used as a base for some great trips within the jungle or for days out with varying levels of adventure. The quality of the food is really high and we really enjoyed our dinner overlooking the river and the rainforest. Breakfast is also of similar high quality. And... More

This is a unique resort, I have traveled the world & have never seen anything like it. It has beautiful 5 star Eco cabins set in the Daintree forest. It's amazing to have 5 star accommodation with such beautiful natural surroundings. From the river front room we had, to the restaurant that is elevated & looks out into the beautiful... More

What a relaxing hotel to stay in. Our riverside room overlooked the Mossman River with everything you could wish for. The restaurant had views to die for with excellent breakfast and dinner. The staff are exceptional and go out of their way to make your stay exceptional and one we will always remember. If you are looking for a luxurious... More

My mom and a friend of ours stayed here in May. We had an incredible time. The rooms were incredible with amazing views. I spent quite a bit of time on my outside hammock just swinging and listening to the sounds of the rainforest. We took an amazing walk with Chris into the Danetree. It was an all day excursion...

We have just returned from a beautiful 4 days up at Silky Oaks Lodge - the lodge is absolutely beautiful. It was the small touches that made all the difference and which justifies the cost (in our minds): a welcome card, bottle of Chandon and chocolates to congratulate us on our wedding anniversary on arrival. The girl behind the bar... More

This is a fantastic location, however three nights was more than enough. First of all there was absolutely no atmosphere as the hotel was almost empty. This made eating in the restaurant quite a lonely experience. The food on the first night was great and we had kangaroo which was fantastic. The second evening was quite forgettable. They have an...
