This is not a resort, apart from cleaning, you look after yourself. You can order wonderful, generous, BBQ baskets for dinner & breakfast. Believe me, there was plenty for dinner and lunch the next day and 1 breakfast basket did us two mornings. Our cabin was elevated, secluded, private and fully self-contained,We had lovely private rain forest views from our balcony and from full length windows in the bedroom and Spa bathroom, very romantic with candles at lit at night.
You could immerse yourself in the forest with only the birds and wildlife for company.
The room was great, we really had a lovely restful time. If you want to watch a movie there is a big selection at the resort and a giant flat screen TV in the room.
Take a walk through the creek and around the property, its a good fairly hard walk so a walking pole is a good idea. There are leeches YUK!! Wear long socks ,high boots & spray with RID.
I did bring a few leechy companions home as I wore walking sandals, as I thought that was sensible as it was a walk crossing creeks, big mistake.
Apart from these unwanted friends its a lovely restful place, if someone isn't screaming about leeches between there toes!!
Definitely go for a walk at night, the glowworms, phosphorescent fungus and the magnificent stars are really worth the short walk down to the creek, at the resort.
We loved our romantic sojourn at the retreat and will definitely return.
