Misty Mountains Tropical Rainforest Retreat
Reviewed October 3, 2011

Only one couple is booked into Misty Mountains Rainforest Retreat at a time which means you get the whole place to yourself. It's a lovers paradise. You have your own swimming lagoon, meditation/massage cabana suspended over the stream, acres and acres of rainforest, a bar and entertainment room with uninterrupted views of the rainforest.

We didn't mean to come to Misty Mountains, in fact it was by chance that we even found the place, but I have to say that we couldn't be happier to have had the opportunity to stay and explore the vast beauty of this hidden gem.

It ticked a lot of boxes for us - secluded, private, couples only, environmentally conscious, self catering, relaxing, adventurous, tropical...the list could go on. Of the 4 days we stayed we didn't even see the entire property, and we did tonnes of walking and bike riding. We also did plenty of relaxing - thats the beauty of this place it's as much or as little as you want it to be. You set the agenda at your pace.

We picked a great time, apparently "winter" in cairns offers the chance for sunny days (tick) and cosy nights by an open fire (tick) where we enjoyed many a home cooked meal and bottle of wine.

The hosts were a huge help - organising a beautiful champagne breakfast and hot air balloon ride in the Atherton Tablelands (a great birthday present from my partner) and pointing out many great picnic nooks, swimming holes and giving us plenty of practical advice on the local area and must-do activities (Etty Bay is a must, as is sampling the local produce of the tablelands).

The only negative was that we didn't book long enough and that unfortunately, I don't think the website really does this place justice, it's truly like no other holiday we have ever had - a perfect balance and great escape - we will definitely go back.
