We stayed here for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon, and it was fantastic. The staff is very friendly and attentive, and the setting is just lovely. The room is huge and has everything you need. I especially loved the spa and the huge windows that open on to the rainforest. Although it takes some getting used to, not... More

We stayed at Pethers as we were attending a wedding in Mt Tambourine and it was definitely a good choice. The room is huge and has uninterrupted views of the rainforest from the balcony off the living room, however compared to the views from other venues in this area, its not really the sort of vista you could happily stare...

We recently stayed at Pethers Rainforest Retreat to celebrate our 1st anniversary, with service from the time I booked I knew this would be a place to remember. I chose the romantic upgrade and don't think the staff couldn't be any more accommodating. Our room was setup well before our arrival with roses scattered on the bed, candles throughout the... More

Everything was done with an attitude of and to a standard of excellence. The location, accomodation, and privacy all combine to make this a place you cannot afford not to stay at least once in your lifetime. It is somewhere we will now prioritize to visit every year. Truly an experience, not just a place to stay.

Pampered is not a strong enough feeling for this wonderful property. We recently stayed for 3 nights and loved the secluded, luxurious feel of our very own slice of heaven. Even the thunder storm and hail added to the warmth and ambiance of this retreat. I loved the floor cushions and rug and even the gas log fire (no mess... More

This Tree House was stunning and romantic! It was even better than what i looks in the pictures. The staff were very warm and freindly and provided superb service. The surronds were amazing sub tropical rainforest. I would not hestitate to book at Pethers as we cannot wait to return.

From the beginning the staff were very accommodating and helpful. The facilities were exceptional and the environment just what we were looking for as a peaceful rainforest retreat. We will definitely be returning. Thank you.

Pethers is a private retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there. From the introduction at reception to the dinner at the on-site restaurant, all was very professional & I would recommend to anyone looking for a private getaway in mount tamborine.

We weren't intending to stay here - I had my heart set on another property for our 11th anniversary, but found the staff there unhelpful, so decided to try Pethers instead. I'm so pleased that we did! Every year we stay somewhere special for our anniversary, and this was one of our favourites. It is a bit tricky to find,... More

Very peacefully relaxing environment, great to unwind and recharge. If you lead a very busy lifestyle and need to relax and recharge your batteries then this is the place to go!!!! Very secluded, very discrete staff, you feel like you are the only people around. Would recommend highly.
