2nd holiday. Stayed for 5 days. From Jane's welcome to the hit fresh bread in the morning, to the delicious jam, to the beautiful soaps and salts fir the spa, to the view and fire.... Well, couldn't ask for a more rejuvenating escape. PS- ask for the in-room massage-SO good.

We spent a very cold 'winter escape' weekend warned by the wonderful fire in this very private and secluded cabin. The layout of the cabin is wonderful but the furniture could do with updating. This is a shame really. However the bed was fabulous, the fire fab, the water and the spa hot and the peace so rewarding. It is... More

Good afternoon Anita, Thank you for the, mostly, positive review. The furniture has recently all been recovered and new cushions. Those big couches that gold coast style homes have would not suit the Balinese style pavilions we offer. Our guests are usually happy to replenish firewood, if needed, as it is part of the experience but the amount provided is... More

We have one word to describe Lyola.... PERFECT.. We cant believe we never found this Hidden Gem earlier. There are many places to stay around the Maleny area but not like Lyola. We stayed 3 nights in Hide. The views were spectacular from every window. The website is correct very comfortable bed and you wake to the magical sound of... More

We stayed in hide. This hideaway was the most beautiful tranquil cottage set within the bush in the Maleny hinterland. Stunning cottage beautiful bed and wonderful spa bath.

We stayed here for just one night just before we face the family Christmas chaos. It was a perfect retreat. We stayed in the 'Hide' pavilion. Everything we needed was thoughtfully supplied and extra touches like the tea leaves, ground coffee, champagne, home made jam and the freshly delivered hot bread in the morning make this place extra special. We... More

My husband and I have stayed in the Hide pavilion twice now and both times were incredible. I recommend Lyola to anyone looking for a romantic escape. Laying in bed looking out the window all that can be seen is a silhouetted canopy of trees with a million stars over head. It is truly magical. Things to love about Lyola... More

Everything about this lovely place is all about relaxing. From having the fireplace lit before we arrived to the beautiful warm freshly cooked bread being hand delivered to your door each morning.

Perfect for the couple looking for some peace and quiet, the space to "be yourselves" and not be bugged by your phone or email (No Optus) Walked down to the swimming hole and rock hopped up the river looking for another more private pool for a swim and were rewarded with a beautiful spot.

Lovely people. Great accommodation. Awesome location. What else could you ask for. Perfect getaway from the kids and the rest off the world. Close enough to Maleny but seems like you are in the middle of nowhere.Views are simply to die for. Can't wait to go back.

As I've written previously about the wonders of Lyola, I'll keep it simple. My wife and I were married there and have returned, for our anniversary, every year since. We've just arrived home today after our latest stint and are already booked for next year. In a nutshell, this place rocks! We always stay in Seek, the higher-positioned of the... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
On the outskirts of Maleny yet hidden away from the village hustle and bustle is Lyola Pavilions in the Forest. Nestled amidst rainforest and enjoying spectacular views, Lyola offers guests a chance to escape, de-stress and unwind by taking in the soothing sounds of mother nature... Two secluded pavilions, fondly referred to as Hide and Seek, designed by award winning GOMANGO Architects offer you every creature comfort. From your own indulgent hideaway, sit back listening to water tumbling over mossy bolders within the depths of the rainforest while watching magnificent sunsets across the valley below. Pamper yourself by taking an aromatherapy spa before curling up in front of the fire to watch a classic movie or listen to your favourite relaxing CD. Stroll down to the rainforest with a good book and recline on comfortable chairs set on a wooden platform overlooking the stream below. Spoil yourself soon at Lyola, it's where the little things count... ... more   less
