Magical environment- beautifully laid out and relaxing - perfect for a weekend stay with a loved one. Popped next door to St bernards for lunch and went to the markets on Sunday. Fireplace was wonderful and cozy with a huge spa for two.

Perfect getaway for couples. Amazingly located on the mountain. Right next door to the St Bernard Hotel. Beautiful views of the valley from the Lovers View. Rooms are definition of luxury. Feel like a queen sleeping in the massive four poster bed. Relaxing day spa. All the staff at the retreat are all so lovely and make you feel very...

We loved our stay at The Escarpment. So relaxed, away from people and noise in our rainforest oasis. The massive bath looking out into the rainforest, sipping champagne was lush. We will be back for another weekend away.

We went to the Escarpment Day Spa as part of a girls weekend up to Mt Tambourine, although we stayed elsewhere as they were booked out. We had the Time Out treatment and it was well worth the money. Exactly the right balance of remedial and relaxing for the massage. Hot stones while my feet were attended to. A head...

The whole experience of the Escarpment was pure bliss. It really is a retreat away from the everyday busyness. Everything was taken care of for us. I have never experienced such a beautiful massage & facial before. Hot towels, gentle music, magic healing hands.

We spent 3 nights at the Escarpment Retreat and were very happy with the resort, perfect for couples wanting privacy in a beautiful place. The rooms were large and very well maintained, you can build your own fire in your room which my husband loved. The meals to the room were really nice, we also had the massage package which...

This is a very comfortable inn on a gorgeous site, surrounded by beautiful grounds. We are taking a mandarins road trip up to Cairns, and rather than stay in a typical Gold Coast 4-5 star beach hotel, we tried this inn. It was a great decision. This is indeed more of a B&B than a 5 star hotel (think Ten...

Thank you for deciding to take a detoir/detour. We are very pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and your visit to our beautiful mountain. All roads may lead to Rome as they say but some are far more enjoyable than others. We were very happy to be part of your journey. Your enjoyment is our reward.

We had a wonderful stay at the Escarpment Retreat. The suite was very spacious, and we really enjoyed the sitting area, the massive bathroom with the great view from the bath tub.
