It was a great stay at a luxury treehouse. A very good value for the money. Our best stay in a tropical rainforest. Although it was very humid and steamy too. Just like we expected! The hotel was very comfortable, easy to get around. And our room was spectacular. The river below was a good day hike to the swimming... More

Silky Oaks Lodge is a luxury accommodation in Daintree Rainforest National Park. We stayed in a treehouse within the lodge and the room was spacious with a balcony (and hammock). We woke up in the morning to the sounds of birds in the tree tops which we looked out upon. The lodge has a spacious restaurant, library as well as... More

A fabulous out of the way resort in the rain forest of norther Queensland. The accommodation is individual tree house cottages with spacious rooms, balconies either overlooking the river or gardens and very well appointed bathrooms. Service from the staff is exceptional and the food is well presented. It is obvious the owners take great pride in the property, highly... More

The staff at this resort is phenomenal! As soon as I arrived, they made transportation arrangements for me to get medical care and also to pick up my prescriptions all the way in Port Douglas. They really went above and beyond! Not only is the staff great, but the resort itself was picturesque and relaxing. We stayed 2 nights, and... More

We spent 3 nights here in a deluxe Treehouse. The room was comfortable, private, clean and had a really, really comfortable bed. Lovely little touches at turndown with chocolates, biscuits etc. Swimming in the billabong was incredible as was snorkelling in the Mossman, walking along the trails, Fig Tree Falls and the onsite pool. We had massages when we were... More

My wife and I had a wonderful time at the Silky Oaks Lodge. It was romantic and tranquil.. Our room was large and clean, with a hammock on the balcony. The air conditioned room was a welcome respite from the humid air. We went swimming and Kayaking in the river(no crocs!), and went on a nature walk with a naturalist(all... More

The rooms are big and roomy, with a hammock on the balcony. Everything is beautiful about this place. It's luxury in the middle of the rain forest. I took a yoga class one morning in a beautiful area next to a roaring river while we heard the birds chirping and a soft rain was falling. The owner Pat used to... More

The staff were very polite and there was always something to do. The area was nice and clean and well kept despite it being in the rainforest. The... More

We could have spent days and days at Silky Oaks Lodge...it was probably the most expensive place we stayed but in the end it was fantastic value as all the activities were free. We took advantage of everything - a guided walk with a knowledgeable naturalist, washing in the laundry, kayaking on the river, yoga classes and lounging around in... More

Prepare to be pampered in a captivating natural environment in the rain forest. The lodge, the bungalows, the food, and the service were all first rate. Truly every interaction with a staff member was strikingly positive. My wife and I were on holiday in Australia celebrating our anniversary and experiencing Silky Oaks for a couple days provided an appropriately romantic... More
