First stop on a 5 week trip to east coast Australia - and what an experience . A truly amazing location . Rooms in need of updating but clean and comfortable , staff made us feel welcome and cared for. Food delicious but a little pricey. We had a spa package that included an very informative guided walk and a marvellously relaxing spa treatment .We had an abundance of wildlife literally on our doorstep and had a fantastic time. Would thoroughly recommend to recharge the batteries after a long trip !!

We took a scenic drive up to the Daintree Rainforest and were looking for a quite place to have lunch when we came across the beautiful Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa on our way into the Daintree Village. What a wonderful experience, from the time we entered the most serene setting overlooking a tropical fern rimmed pond, finding it the perfect spot to chill.

Our host welcomed us and made some suggestions which proved to be amazing with an erray of bush berries and condiments complimenting our already delicious meal. A well chosen wine "sealed the deal".
Although we were not staying there, whilst sitting and admiring the surrounds including the treetop cottages, I vow, I will return to stay longer in the not too distant future.
To top it off, it was very reasonably priced. Loved it!

For all the hype and high priced rooms, the hotel itself is disappointing. Like other reviewers mentioned, there was an obvious need for repairs and everything besides the lacking room itself was an extra (and extravagant) fee. While the food was delicious it was awfully expensive. The spa was already fully booked - primarily as I was lead to believe by non-guests. All the amenities that were appealing were not available or easily accessible. Worth a drive for the a meal, but save your pennies on a stay. Stayed September 2010.

We stayed at the Daintree Ecolodge from Sept 23rd - Sept 25th and had a wonderful time. The property itself is gorgeous--nestled right in the middle of the Daintree Rainforest. Since this was our honeymoon, we decided to splurge on some spa treatments at the cute spa on the property and it was excellent. My husband and I both got the Walbul Walbul treatments which consisted of a body treatment and hour long massage.

The staff are phenomenal--very sweet, personable and attentive. We ate pretty much all of our meals at the Julaymba restaurant which was very good.

Yes the property is pretty expensive and the rooms could use a bit of a makeover, but the beds were very comfortable and the outdoor patio was nice and large. We highly recommend this location for anyone looking for a unique place to stay while in Queensland!

My mom and I spent two nights here in September 2013. While we thoroughly enjoyed the rain forest, the accommodations themselves were hardly worth the high prices for this lodge. The bathrooms are extremely outdated and by no means luxurious and all the furnishings in the room are fairly old and rustic. While I thought this experience would be sort of like "glamping" (glamorous camping), it was nothing of the sort. I would highly recommend going to many of the nearby lodges which likely have much cheaper prices for a similar type accommodation.

The pros:
-Rain forest setting was beautiful
-Breakfast was large and delicious
-Pond at reception / restaurant was lovely to watch the wildlife (turtles, frogs, snakes, etc.)

The cons:
-Very cold, unwelcoming bathroom
-Outdated room furnishings
-Dirty floors in the room
-Pool is very cold and under a roof which isn't very appealing to actually swim in (saw no one swimming while we were there)
-Extremely high prices of rooms for the quality

Room Tip: Some rooms have more privacy than others, even when reserving a spa suite. Request more privacy if...

Overpriced everything. Beware of the special restrictions on the restaurant and massages, you're entitled to more than you're offered. We were told on checkin that the restaurant was almost booked and there was nowhere else to eat in the area. Restaurant had average food. Small portions and 35+ mains. After exploring the next day we found other restaurants that were great.

Room Tip: Choose a different one.
