“4 night stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2012

My husband and I agree that the 4 nights we spent here were among the most relaxing times of our lives! Our room was perfectly appointed (comfortable bed, lush towels and a fabulous double spa, among other things), with sublime views. The breakfasts cooked by Ken were simply delicious and we found him and the other staff to be most obliging. We enjoyed being accompanied on walks down to the creek by the dogs - Benji and Cassie. The accomodation is in an ideal location for those who want some peace and quiet, yet enjoy short pictureque drives (approx 10 mins) to local cafes and book shops. We can't recommend this place enough. Thanks Ken and Dawn! T and C

We escaped up to the mountains for our 'anniversary night' to celebrate 7 wonderful years together. The incredible room was private, spacious and divine with a vast selection of movies and CD's to peruse. Our fabulous hostess, Dawn, knew all the delicious restaurants close by and also mentioned that the Montville Bar and Grill would send a complimentary bus to pick us up and deliver us back! Done. We had time to go for a leisurely walk down to the Obi Obi creek and escorted by the 'happy body guards' (their 2 lovely dogs). My partner (he is European!) had a refreshing swim in the gorgeous, scenic, waterhole. We then had time for a warm bubbly spa, some champagne and at 7.30, the mini bus arrived outside, as organised. We were whisked away for a night of fun, amazing music, excellent meals and even some 'dancing on the deck'. Next morning, we had a fabulous home cooked feast, but then sadly, retreated back down the hill to our frantic life of work (nurses at the Nambour Hospital), our family of teenagers, and dull, usual routines.
An amazing experience that was refreshing, bonding, fun, enjoyable, we were so incredibly well looked after, and we shall return.

What an relaxing and enjoyable stay. Had 3 nights in the Candi Dasa unit and what a stress free holiday it was. Fantastic views of tropical country surrounds overlooking Lake Baroon with a short walk to Obi Obi creek. So peaceful watching and listening to the magpies and other bird life through the day and the sounds of the frogs and crickets at night. Just lovely to sit on the verandah of our unit taking in the sights and sounds whilst sampling a nice red with Maleny cheese and biscuits. Beautiful appointed private unit with the spa, kingsize bed and double shower etc. Would be a hit with honeymooners. Highly recommended with fantastic and friendly hosts to boot. Superb breakfast of fresh fruit topped with the greatest yoghurt (locally produced) we have tasted. Situated in close proximity to Montville and Maleny and other tourist sites in the Blackall Ranges.

Room Tip: Best view and privacy in the Candi Dasa unit.

My friend and I rented one of the villas in advance of a wedding. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the new villas with a wonderful deck overlooking the paddocks and Lake Baroon. The facilities of the room were superb - great spa and an impressive entertainment system. The breakfast was delicious and the hospitality received by Ken and Daphne was incredibly warm. I would have no hesitation in recommending this accommodation to anyone.

I recently stayed 2 nights in Ken's brand new villa at Maleny Tropical Retreat with 2 very dear girlfriends. We had planned the weekend for quite a while to take some quality girlfriend time together. Ken's down to earth hospitality combined with the beautiful Balinese influence of the newly built villa set the tone for a lovely weekend. The villa had a generous double spa; 3D plasma TV; cows in the fields below; awesome views; lovely double shower; comfy beds and a great wrap around deck that was a perfect venue for early morning yoga :-) We topped off a great time with a post brekky walk down to Obi Obi Creek for a dip and then enjoyed the ling trek back up with our friendly 4 legged escorts! Whether you are looking for a romantic getaway or a fun girls time away such as ours, this retreat will be a treat! Thanks Ken and Daph for your warm hospitality..I will be back! Mary J.

My wife and I enjoyed the country hospitality of the hosts...The rooms were clean and comfortable. We enjoyed waking up in the morning to the views and the birds calling not to mention the sound of the river below, which was great for a swim on a hot day.

Two friends and I planned this girls getaway weekend long ago not realising that we would be the first ones to stay at the new Tanah Lot villa at Maleny Tropical Retreat. We were very surprised at how stunning it is and the quality of the hospitality that Ken and Daph showed to us. While the double spa and queen size bed and day bed are really designed for couples, it provided excellent facilities for us girls who have been friends for 26 years! We enjoyed the Eumundi markets, Noosa and Montville / Maleny areas but found the villa such a relaxing home base. We loved the gourmet cooked breakfasts!! We loved the early morning yoga in our PJ's on the deck overlooking the cows!! What a way to start the day.... We also had a great swim at the swimming hole and walk around the property. I had not seen a 3D TV before and thought that amazing! Great selection of movies and music too. We absolutely loved it all and cannot wait to return with our husbands now!! Thanks so much for looking after us so well!! Kris
