We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of eight nights at Silky Oaks. Our treehouse cabin was private and tranquil, within a beautiful rainforest setting. The bed was very comfortable and the housekeeping team did an amazing job keeping our room immaculate. Yes, as other reviewers have mentioned, there are some issues with mould and mustiness in cupboards in the tropics, which... More

Silky Oaks combines the beautiful sights and sounds of the rainforest with magnificent food and faultless service. From yoga, to bushwalking and swimming in the river, or just relaxing in the hammock, it is a spectacular place to unwind for a few days. The Treehouse restaurant did not disappoint with an interesting menu featuring quality local produce.

We stopped into Silky Oaks for dinner on our way back from the daintree. Unfortunately we were disappointed. We were greeted by a friendly girl who passed us onto a floor manager (didn't get his name). We asked for a table for two, he looked us up and down and said that he was fully booked. This was a strange... More

My family and friends stayed at Silky Oaks for three nights and it was just wonderful. The lodge is set in the middle of the beautiful rainforest, on the Mossman river. An absolute unique location. The lodge is an eco resort but has everything that a five star resort needs. A good swimming pool, a luxurious spa and an award... More

We had the most amazing stay. The staff were better than fabulous,... And got to know each of the clients personally. Adapting the service to suit each of us. I honestly could not say I have had a better experience. Loved every minute of it. I know the local wild life and a tiff at 4am but that is part... More

Family spent 4 nights here. The lush tropical location along the river is beautiful. Staff was very nice. Rooms were large and nicely appointed especially considering the difficulties maintaining anything in a rainforest. Pool was picturesque. And the place had free (albeit do-it-yourself washer and dryers...very handy). Considering the environment, the place is clean and relatively bug/animal free...impressive. So here's... More

We really enjoyed our 3 day stay ay Silky Oaks, it was actually too short as there were still so many more things to see and do! The location is overwhelming beautiful and the way the lodge blends into its environment is very well done. The very comfortable and spacious rooms have all amenities one would want - and when...

When asked what could be improved, we couldn't think of a thing. This delightful lodge in the middle of a world heritage rain forest is a special treat. Accommodations are excellent, food is outstanding and the international staff unfailingly friendly and helpful. Nice swimming pool, good hikes, interesting outings provide lots of options if you want more stimulation.

We were recommended Silky Oaks so decided to have a look. We weren't expecting a such a beautiful place. A very nice nice lunch in the most beautiful setting. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. Well worth the interesting drive.
