We arrived and greeted by a lovely lady (sorry cant remember your name) very enthusiastic, gave us info on the local area, confirmed our dinner reservation and showed us to our retreat. It was beautiful, very cosy, absolutely huge and the chocs and champagne... More

The rooms are amazing, have lots of glass and an incredible rainforest view . They offer privacy are extremely spacious, have a great spa bath, gas fire, lounge and small dining table. We went in winter and unfortunately the gas fire wasn't enough to heat the room , so it was freezing overnight. We ate in the restaurant for dinner... More

I stayed with my partner mid week, and when we arrived we forgot about everything it was so relaxing and tranquil. The room was clean, and spacious and the chocolates and champagne were a lovely gesture. The tea and coffee were also lovely good to see it wasn't any cheap stuff for the amount you pay to stay, and the... More

Thank you for taking the time to write your review on Pethers. Excellent to hear that you enjoyed your stay, we are so fortunate to be located so close to the city, yet the Retreat feels worlds away. I apologise for you experience with the Ants. Unfortunately we have not had rain for a while and the Ants seek out... More

This place is absolutely incredible!!! On arrival the staff are very friendly and helpful and walk you to your door. There are only 10 small houses available and each are secluded in their own spectacular space of the rainforest. Very quiet and tranquil! The rooms themselves are the perfect romantic getaway complete with gas fireplace, wide balcony for breakfast with... More

The "Tree Houses" at Pethers are very comfortable and the atmosphere is very relaxing. We enjoyed the peace and quiet. We purchased a midweek package that included 2, 1/2 hour massages and dinner for two in the restaurant. The massage was fabulous and we learned that the same masseur has been at Pethers for aprox 15 years. As for the... More

Pethers Rainforest Retreat could not have been more perfect for a romantic getaway - including candles, a fireplace and a giant spa bath all with the stunning back drop of Tamborine Mountain Rainforest.

We stayed here for a relaxing getaway and that's exactly what we got! The setting is so peaceful and tranquil that you start to relax almost as soon as you arrive. We checked in late and the lovely lady I booked with had left the key and details exactly where she said she would. The treehouse itself was gorgeous! Beautiful... More

Having stayed at this retreat several times over the last 6 years I would say that the property has gone down hill a bit from past visits. Although the room was quite clean there seemed to be mould in grained into the glass of the shower screen which looked most unattractive. The breakfast basket is not particularly inviting just some... More

Thank you for your feedback. In regards to the property going downhill. We have just recently had a refurbishment of the rooms and also have employed a Full Time Maintenance manager and horticulturalist so surprised to here that you feel it has gone downhill.

Spent a night here while hunting wedding venues. But accommodation wise, this place is great. Really nice staff, nice layout of what they call the treehouses and peaceful rainforest surrounds. The only downside for me was they didn't offer hot breakfasts, but that's ok as there are plenty of cafes and restaurants within a 5 minute drive. Would definitely recommend.

We chose to stay here after our wedding in Mt Tamborine for 2 night and we are so glad that we did. The rooms are huge and very romantic with cushions by the fireplace, tea light candles by the spa, and of course the magnificent rainforest view. We won't forget our stay, and will be coming back!
