We stayed at the Heritage Lodge and Spa for 5 days in late September early October as a family with 2 children aged 11 and 14 and thorougly enjoyed every moment of it! It was a perfectly positioned right in the middle of the Daintree in which we could explore to the north and the south which we did. My husband sighted a Boyd's Bearded Dragon on the walking trail behind the lodge early one morning - not the mention the River perch and the Turtles as a highlight for our daughter - who loved throwing bread down the them each morning after breakfast. All the staff we found wonderful - Ida, Vicki, Jancy-Lee and the lady that cleaned our room everyday - even tucking our daughter teddy bear in to the covers.
The breakfast was included in our accomodation, we stayed in the family cabin which is basic in the fact that there is a queen bed and two single in the same room and a seperate bathroom - which is all you need if you are out all day experiencing the wonders and magic of the Daintree. We did dine at the restaurant twice, the meals we found the meals to be delicious and filling. We live on a main road in Sydney so it was lovely to wake up the birds in the rainforest every morning rather than the traffic.
Highly recommend a dip in the creek, it was cool but refreshing at the same time. The kids swam in the pool which they thoroughly enjoyed. Absolutely loved the fact that there was no TV or mobile phone reception as it made us relax and reconnect as a family. We have as a family highly recommended the Heritage Lodge and Spa to anyone that we have spoke to about our wonderful family holiday.
Hopefully, we will be able to make it back up to the Daintree in the future.
