From the moment that we arrived our welcome was amazing. Welcomed with champagne and chocolates. The rooms were breathtaking What you see on the website is most definitely what you get. Dinner to our room was excellent. Breakfast was cooked to perfection. We both had massages and came away feeling very relaxed and wanting a good sleep. I loved the... More

The Massage and Therapists were lovely but after a two hour treatment most people are feeling a little light headed and drowsy. I stumbled out of the treatment room and was shown the door. Literally every other massage I have ever had was followed by the offer of a glass or water, some tea and a seat to rest in... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our honeymoon and we definitely saved the best until last! The rooms were spacious and relaxing, we loved the rainforest being right there, and the walks around the grounds with all the lookout spots that were provided. The housekeeping was wonderful, and even on days when we... More

To start off with the place had a strong romantic vibe to it and the place, rooms and views were amazing and beautiful! However there were a few downputs. •The toilet had poo skids when we arrived and opened it from the sealed paper cover so the cleaner obviously saw that and still sealed it •No hot water for ONE...

Nice but just not our thing in the end. Many will think otherwise. The manager was great and the accommodation was of a high standard but we found our apartment was just too dark. Breakfast was a treat and the grounds were nice also. All in all not bad but it did seem alot of money for what we got.

Beautiful, wonderful, awesome! The Escarpment Retreat is a real gem on the mountain. We stayed in Villa 2 for 5 nights as part of our honeymoon. The 4 poster king sized bed is amazing, the balcony overlooking rock pools beautiful, and with daily servicing of the room there is nothing to do. My wife had a wonderful massage at the... More

Anywhere I am given champagne and chocolates on arrival is going to rate highly with me! This was our second visit, with our first being 9 years ago. It was just as we remembered. Bedroom and bathroom are beautiful. Gardens and water features add to the serenity. Breakfast was delicious. Kitchenette facilities offered more than most. We found it handy... More

Overall this was a very nice place to stay. There is lots to do on Mount Tamborine, even if you avoid the very busy "Gallery Walk". For us, here are the best things: nice and quiet, close to the Sunday markets, beautifully clean and presented cozy chalets, nice cooked breakfast included, beautifully kept gardens, an amazing view from the escarpment...
