We stayed at the Heritage Lodge & Spa in October 2011. On arrival, I was a little disappointed as I was expecting a more 'up market' resort style place. However, i soon realised there was far more to the place than I had initially thought. Whilst it isn't a resort style, it is comfortable, homely, secluded and very in keeping with the rainforest surrounding.
It's set in the middle of the rainforest and has it's own swimming hole (croc free!) and walks - all of which are beautiful. The accommodation is lovely, very clean and comfortable - colonial style rooms, again, not resort style, but very nice - I slept beautifully! The restaurant is out door set in the middle of the rainforest - absolutely perfect. Great food, very good chef. Only downside, was a very poor wine selectin - the second night we took our own wine which Vicki (the owner) was more than happy to allow us to do. Vicki also said she would get some better wine! Vicki and all her staff were lovely - very helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
The Heritage isn't in walking distance to other restaurants (you need a car) but that's not really a problem, the food was so good we were very happy to eat there both nights.
We would definitely recommend it and stay there again ourselves.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Step back in time and experience the magic of the ‘Heritage Lodge & Spa’ in the Daintree. Just two hours North of Cairns, this is the only place in the world where two world heritage listed National Parks join. This section of the Daintree rainforest, is where the world's most ancient rainforest meets the reef. Wake to the call of birds in one of our rainforest cabins and enjoy the clear pure air of the Daintree. All 20 cabins in our boutique lodge are set within serenity of the rainforest and are perfect for bird, butterfly or musky rat kangaroo spotting. Take a swim with jungle perch and turtles in untouched crystal clear Cooper Creek, which winds through the lodge en-route from the mountains to the sea. As soon as you set foot into the lodge you are made to feel at home. From the smells of fresh bread drifting from the kitchen to the warm welcome from the attentive local staff. Our international chef will tantalise your tastebuds with Mediterranean style quality food using the finest of local ingredients. Dine with the bandicoots for dinner and enjoy breakfast and lunch overlooking the magical Cooper Creek. Let our staff share their local knowledge of the area and assist you to maximise your time in this magnificent destination.
