My wife and I had a spur of the moment thing and decided to get away from the kids for a weekend. We looked and found this place and were lucky enough to get a room for one night. This place is an oasis in the rainforest. Everything people have said is right - it's amazing. Every luxury is there, but don't kid yourself - this is a rainforest retreat, not a luxury hotel in town, be prepared for wildlife encounters. We even had an adventurous kookaburra that did a break and enter through a fly screen - that just added to the charm, and I believe they are not usually that friendly! The room and heated plunge pool was awesome. Be prepared and bring food and drinks and you can easily spend 4-5 days of resting, bush walking and escape kids, jobs, whatever. Like many others we wished our stay had been longer. Be aware that if you plan walking on the trails at the moment that they are still suffering from damage from the cyclone early this year and good walking gear is recommended (we were fortunately well prepared). Also, don't expect the walks to be gentle strolls - they are great testing walks. The owners are great and incredibly helpful. We wil be back!
