We stayed here on a 'Spice up your life" package and had such a wonderful and relaxing time. The one thing that struck us though, was the service - we couldn't fault it. We had a slight issue with our breakfast on the first morning, but the manager came and spoke with us about our concerns very promptly and when we went for our Day Spa appointment, we found that there was an extra half hour included for each of us at no extra cost - we didn't ask and certainly didn't expect this ... so it was a nice touch.
Here's a quick summary:
Property - beautiful and secluded, very relaxing and you don't see many of the other guests.
Room - great ... shower is beautiful with two shower heads; hot tub is perfect for relaxing; bed extremely comfortable. My only, only suggestion with the room is that it really needs two couches for relaxing rather than one.
Restaurant - dinner was absolutely beautiful. We had the degustation menu and thoroughly enjoyed it - the staff were lovely and knowledgeable.
Day Spa - spectacular. My massage quite possibly was one of the best I have ever had.
With all the places to stay in the Maleny/Montville area, I would highly recommend Spicers Tamarind.
