The Perfect TIME OUT!!! My partner and I desperately needed some very precious time out and for years I have always yearned to get to the Daintree. On arrival at Silky Oaks Lodge we were so warmly greeted by the staff, I knew then we chose the right place. It is a gem of hidden mystery right on the river... More

We stayed at Silky Oaks for 3 days at the end of May. I can't say enough good things about this place. Our room overlooking the Mossman river was amazing- everything was to perfection and it seemed no detail was too small for them to consider. The music, the scents, the hammock, the beautiful wood floors and tasteful décor, not... More

Coming off a 30 hour travel day, we were greeted by a private driver from Silky Oaks, who was SO accomodating, he pulled over to let us see hang gliders, took us to a pharmacy, and made sure we had everything we needed at arrival. Our room was amazing, with a can't-beat-it view, and the property is phenomenal. We got... More

WOW, the whole week seems like a dream now, however I must say our stay at Silky Oaks lodge was just perfect and a very romantic location for a honeymoon. We were greeted upon arrival by a very friendly staff member who got us welcome drinks and explained the lodge and all activities available after which we were escorted to... More

Two wonderful nights at the Silky Oaks Lodge was not long enough. Located in a tranquil setting, you cannot help but relax and leave all your worries behind! The Staff were so helpful and friendly. The lodge area with restaurant is perfect. Quiet areas to read, use your computer, just enjoy a drink, tea or coffee. It rained the entire... More

We booked Silky Oaks for 5 nights for our 'baby moon' and honestly couldn't have been more impressed. The location of the lodge is in beautiful surroundings, right on the river and within the trees. Can’t have been more beautiful. Even though there was quite a bit of rain, it was such a beautiful place to stay, the rain made... More

I'm not sure that there were ANY negative points to our stay at this absolutely beautiful lodge in a magnificent setting, with immaculate service at every turn, helpful guides, excellent food (OK, there's our one issue -- the restaurant menu, which changes every night, didn't have any chocolate desserts one of the nights we ate there!). This is a one-of-a-kind... More

We arrived at Silky Oaks due to the fact that Hurricane Ita damaged our previous reservation. We were absolutely delighted that we had made this change. This is an absolutely stunning hotel - located in the middle of Daintree Forest and overlooking Mossman River. Each individual cabana (bedroom and bathroom) is beautifully located, luxuriously appointed with a wonderful deck (complete... More
