I had lunch with a friend a few weeks ago. We arrived at 12 when there were only 3 other tables. We waited to be seated (there was only one waiter) but then got a lovely table with a great view. We then had to wait for menus, a good five minutes then wait for water (I had to get... More

The first thing you will notice about Silky Oaks Lodge is that you are not in Kansas anymore. You are in the midst of a genuine rainforest, living in a separate bungalow. The room accommodations are comfortable, and the hammock on the back porch is an added touch. The air conditioning was effective, and the good sized bathroom had a... More

Silky Oaks Lodge was fantastic from the reservation process through to our last day. Let's break it down Sharada was always very good answering all our questions and requests. She made the reservation process nice and smooth. At our arrival and during our stay she was always there to help. In general all staff were helpful and friendly. The lodge... More

My husband and I stayed here for five nights for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. We had one of the furthest treehouses, and although we were at first a bit worried about the walk to the main lodge, we soon relished the secluded feeling and walk to help with digestion after such delicious breakfasts. The rooms were well equipped... More

We loved the accommodations and staff, both excellent. The dining was good, but not great. Definitely a great stop if visiting the GBR. We had our 11 and 15 year olds with who loved the river but could tell that most visitors are without kids.

It is a fantasy, other-worldly experience to be standing on a treehouse balcony during a gentle thundershower in the rainforest of Queensland. Then go back inside to the air conditioned treehouse, with the eucalyptus oil candles, and the indigenous musical background. Take a dip amid the gentle shower, in a pool surrounded by the rainforest. Later, grab an umbrella and... More

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
