Peters is the most wonderfull place in the middle of the rainforest, but not too far from everything to have nice food, great cheese, champagne ect. The houses are very nice and cosy, clean and private - we felt like we had the whole forest to ourselves. The staff was super friendly and helpfull. We loved it so much that... More

Wow! This place is amazing. Way beyond expectations. These treehouses are set in the forest so you get the whole tranquil experience. The lodge with its large open fire is a nice place to relax with a nice glass of red. The host, Hope, was very friendly(as was all staff) giving us vast knowledge of the Mounts activities and people.... More

We stayed at Pethers for one night for our first wedding anniversary. It was beautiful! The treehouses are exactly like the pictures and the rainforest is so relaxing. In our treehouse the lights from the restaurant lit up the trees so we could still enjoy the view at night as well. We saw a bandicoot! It was the perfect relaxing... More

We booked at Pethers quite late. As always, we were anxious about our choice as we were travelling to celebrate our 20th Wedding Anniversary and also needed to relax and unwind from our hectic work schedule. We were not disappointed. It was everything we wished for. Thank you.

Waking up "in" the rain forest is a once in a lifetime experience! Facilities were excellent and as advertised. Our room had all the amenities - comfy bed, spa, gas heater, deck - everything you would expect of a 5-star resort. Treat yourself to this one!

Everything is as it says or looks on the web site.The service and quality of food and beverage is great.The background is like nothing else in this region. I had a great time I can't wait to be able to head back up there.

My wife & I always choose Pethers Rainforest Retreat for special occasion getaways. If you want peace, solitude, a warn fireplace to curl up beside this is the place to go to. This was our fourth visit with many more planned and we have tried a lot of places at Mount Tamborine. This rates amongst the best

Relaxing and Quiet. Shame the common area with fire not open/operating the evening we were there as it would have been nice to chill out there for a little while, however, the virtual fireplace (runs on gas) in the room looked great although my better half was still cold. Could do with reverse cycle air conditioning as we felt guilty... More

We love staying at Pethers, and when we were deciding on our honeymoon, we didn't consider anywhere else. The privacy and quiet of the luxury treehouses are perfect. The staff are also incredibly friendly, knowledgeable and caring. We will continue to visit again and again.

Took my wife to Pethers for her birthday in (7,8,9) June 2014... The level of comfort, warmth, and calmness of the retreat resort was amazing. It was very special and you felt like you were in all alone in the rainforest. The silence only interupted by the fauna. The food at the restaurant was fantastic. Service by the staff was... More
