Stayed for a night at the Pethers earlier this week and the tree house interior is huge and spacious. The view from the room outwards to the balcony and forest is simply breathtaking and amazing during the day. As night falls, we had to switch on the fireplace to warm up the sizeable room. The bathroom is separated from the... More

Fantasic relaxing getaway tuck away in mount tamborine. Very quiet, peaceful, secluded just what was needed for a few days to unwind and relax. The cheese platter and champagne on arrival is always a welcome bonus and the breakfast basket was great. The Room is amazing spacious and the views of the rainforest from the spa bath where so amzing... More

We spent two nights at Pethers a week into our 2015 Australia trip. The calm and tranquility were a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of Singapore and Brisbane. Pethers is located in North Tamborine, a quaint little town with little shops, cafes and an Irish pub, "Clancy's". Found about 500m down a lane off Main Street it is... More

We felt it was a lovely place to stay. Although it was over priced for what it was. For the price I would have expected the bathroom to be better with only a single basin in a tight corner with bad lighting also no heater in the bathroom. Breakfast was nice but had to chase it up and collected it... More

Such a great place! Staff are relaxed and friendly, room was absolutely beautiful in every way - loved the furniture. Breakfast basket was excellent - could not be faulted. Everything is so private! Can't wait to return when the restaurant is open.

We only had one night but the feeling of retreat was instant as the huge glass doors and windows framed a beautiful rain forest scene. Friendly service and a wonderful dinner in the restaurant to compliment our wine & chocolate on arrival plus the brekkie basket was all we needed. We will definitely be back for a longer stay, thanks... More

Pethers Rainforest Retreat is tucked away in lush rainforest at the end of a long, private road just past the picturesque village of North Tamborine. Our large suite was beautifully furnished, clean, bright and spacious and had every modern luxury we could possibly want for a two-night stay including a fabulous spa bath with a stunning view to the rainforest...

Having lived on the Gold Coast for many years, I am shocked we were unaware of this venue. It should not be a secret as you are missing an experience you see in movies. Each cabin stands alone for privacy and tranquillity with only the wildlife to see and hear. Breakfast basket is all you need after one of the... More

The retreat was wonderful. The tree houses were spacious, with all your needs catered for. Great big spa bath, fire place, bottle sparkling wine. Comfortable big bed and loads of wild life. Dinner in the restaurant was very nice, however breakfast was really good. A basket full of goodies, started with cereal, then the BEST yoghurt I have ever had,... More
