You approach Silky Oaks Lodge from a very quiet side road with the last few hundred yards a private road ending at the car park on the very edge of a steamy tropical rainforest. As we checked in immediately perceived a sense of calmness and tranquility. Was it the disposition of the gentleman on the desk or maybe the staff... More

We arrived on Christmas Day at Silky Oaks Lodge (my partner's 40th birthday, the travel agent had informed the hotel so they could provide a cake etc but apart from the receptionist no one mentioned it!) and we were shown to the bar area, it was about 17:00, we were given a drink and some hotel information to read before...

An amazing experience at Silky Oaks. Can you imagine laying in the hammock with your wife listening to ranforest creatures, while it rains? Absolute relaxing! We almost missed dinner! Dinner was a real treat. Another highlight! A great variety to choose from. Haut cuisine! They use local produce which the chef crafts into something very special. It was very attentive... More

This is by far the nicest place we stayed during our trip to Australia. It is breathtaking, the lodges are stunning and the little touches in every room make it a truly memorable stay. The food is divine, the staff are lovely, the location is incredible and if you're very lucky you'll get to see it on both a rainy... More

We stayed for 3 nights (10 year wedding anniversary) in a 'river treehouse'. The room was clean and tidy with a view of the river. The sound of the river running was beautiful - the room, although air-conditioned, had screens so we could leave the doors open and listen. Situated in the rainforest, it did indeed shower rain for 10-15... More

Am writing this without a stay but having had a wonderful lunch and walk around the property. Had stayed at Port Douglas many times and was a bit over the superficiality of the Sheraton etc. There was no personal interest in us as guests so we spent the next day driving and at properties for our next stay. Loved the... More

People come to Cairns and Port Douglas for the experience of The Great Barrier Reef. If you have time, try to add another totally different dimension...the Daintree Rainforest. If you can stay at the SILK OAKS LODGE while doing so, all the better. Yes, it's upmarket, but you will feel it worthwhile in your separate cabin with hammock swinging over... More

The rooms were beautiful and spacious, especially nice bathrooms. Food was great and the tropical setting was very relaxing. The pool area was beautifully landscaped, and the view while dining superb.

This was just amazing. The staff here were all so helpful and made it so special. We had the most amazing room (room 25) and it was a shame the resort was so nice as I could have quite happily spent all my time in the room or in the hammock! The food here is SENSATIONAL. The chef was amazing... More

We stayed three nights at Silky Oaks Lodge as part of our travels around Australia and absolutely loved our stay! We stayed in the last river front tree house and had a wonderful view overlooking the river (which was raging due to the recent rain). We enjoyed relaxing on our porch and swinging in the Hammock. At night we kept... More
