Went to Silky Oaks Lodge in May and loved every minute of our long weekend break. We are now sold on staying at luxury lodges when ever we are away for a short break. The staff at the lodge were amazing. Marta who manages the restaurant is to be commended on her personal service . She was extremely in turned... More

We (family with two teenagers) stayed in the Lodge Suite (King bed + 2 singles in one open room). The room was beautiful and felt secluded with a rainforest view off the back deck. It was, however, a little cramped for four grown people. Internet was only available in the main lodge. Pool was small and cold, but beautiful and... More

Silky Oaks is just incredible - from check in through to check out *almost* everything is perfect. The room was unlike anything we'd ever stayed in before - nestled amongst the tree tops and looking over the Mossman river, if you ever want to feel far away from your 9-5 office job, this is the place to go. One less... More

Absolutely beautiful place to stay. The staff are friendly, professional and helpful. The food looks and taste wonderful. The grounds and walks are so natural. A special thank you to James, Marta & Chris for making our stay fun and relaxing.

This is so beautiful. Wonderful food and excellent service. Sitting there with our beautiful food and wine while looking out onto the Daintree with the river flowing right there. Gorgeous place. They pick you up from your accommodation and take you home. Service Impeccable.

My new husband and I visited Silky Oaks a few days after our wedding in Port Douglas, as a last minute decision to go on a 'mini-moon', to recover from a week of festivities, over-indulgence and emotions. Silky Oaks was perfect for our needs- we just wanted somewhere that felt luxurious enough to feel like a honeymoon but completely relaxing.... More

Now the good, bad, and real ugly about Silky Oaks. The good, and it was very good, was that Silky Oaks was beautiful. The rooms were first class and the common areas very nice. Quiet and secluded within the rain forest. Now the bad.The first bad was the front desk. When we checked in we asked if she had information... More

Two European waitresses.Marta and Julia were sweet. But, their hidden gem was Chris O'Dowd an incredible botanist who provides daily walks around the lodge and incredible day trips to Cape Tribulation, We loved... More

My wife and I spent 3 days and nights and found the accomodations, a cottage in the rainforest overlooking the Mossman river, was really wonderful. All wood, the sound of the river, lots of birds and wildlife. The dining experience was exceptional, casual yet very elegant. The staff is exceptional and a pleasure. Although it's a bit more expensive, the... More
