My partner and I spent three wonderful days at this beautifully appointed retreat. The location in Julatten is fabulous for those wishing to get away from beach crowds or heat.

During our stay the air was clear and the temperature was just magic. Our lodge (one of two) was cleverly designed and the appointments showed that no expense had been spared. The alfresco kitchen provided the best cooking experience imaginable, with the rainforest as our backdrop. The spa was great, and I will leave you to discover the shower for yourself,,,,, let's just say 'spacious'. The bed was in my top five comfortable beds I have ever slept in. Until sleeping on clouds becomes possible, go to Sweetwater. I can still smell the wonderful aroma of the Australian timber of the fine crafted cupboards, tables and furniture.

We wanted to be by ourselves, and we were given complete privacy. On those occasions during our strolls that we came across our hosts Glenn, Wendy and the boys, we found them to be warm and friendly.

I could go on and on, but I'm just so sad that I am not back there right now!

Away from the heat of the coast, just half an hours drive into the mountains from Port Douglas you will find Sweetwater Lodge, where you can relax in the cool of the rainforest air. I spent a wonderful few days at this stylish retreat in one of the architect designed Lodges, with its handmade wooden fitted interior, and pure cotton bedlinen, this is luxury, peace and tranquillity all rolled into one. There is plenty to explore, the tropical scenery and flowers are beautiful. Self catering with an open air kitchen dosent come better than this, or you may choose to be catered for. Your hosts Glenn and Wendy are professionals in the hospitality business, they can arrange to cater for your individual needs, with notice. Anything from a wedding to dinner for 2. Yes this venue also has a large creekside patio and Platypus hut, where a larger party can take place. This is an experience not to be missed. Mrs H.

Welcomed by our hosts on arrival, who were very helpful and left us to enjoy the surroundings. View of the bush from the lounge room was awesome and had fun exploring the river the next day with the kids. Ventured out over the week to see the Daintree, Cape Tribulation and Mossman Gorge. Even though it was humid at those locations you noticed the difference when returning to the mild climate of Jullatten.

Sweetwater Lodge is a delighful venue set in the tropical far north of Australia. The contemporary and very stylish individual lodges are surrounded by the beautiful Australian bushland with expansive views of mountain ranges.
The hosts, Glenn and Wendy have established beautiful tropical rainforest gardens that abound with birds. This is a wonderful place to escape from one's work life for a while, to enjoy silence and solitude. The experience is luxury in the bush and from a bushwalker's perspective, it is perfect. I shall certainly return.

Sweetwater Lodge is truly special. We've stayed there twice now, it's an ideal weekend getaway for a memorable occasion, even better to stay longer and really absorb the tranquility, ambience and magnificent scenery of this unique place. The distinctive cabins are stylish and comfortable, yet quirky and attractively designed to be very much in keeping with the natural environment. The setting is a bird-watcher's delight and an artist's dream, very inspiring and extremely private.

Hosts Glenn and Wendy are highly sensitive to your needs, if peace and solitude are what you're after, look no further. If you feel like company you may be invited for home made wood fired pizzas, Wendy is a seriously good cook.

Sweetwater feels like a world away from everything, definitely a refreshing and soothing experience for the soul and spirit. We'll be back!
