My husband and I were very lucky to stay in Numinbah Lodge (Mountain Veiw Lodge) for three nights. It was definitely paradise in the rainforest!
The resort is in a true, virgin rainforest location and extremely private. If your looking for a resort out of the way, Crystal Creek is perfect. I've stayed in a few properties that state they are private but you can see other houses in the distance or they are located on small acreage - howerver Crystal Creek is truly remote!
The lodge was open plan and when I walked in, it took my breath away! One side of the lodge is floor to ceiling windows looking out to the valley and the rainforest, the furnishings are homely and inviting and I loved that there were tea lights everywhere. It was quite romantic.
In addition, there was a good size kitchen, large deck, BBQ and the plunge pool!!
The resort offers meals (a set menu, brought to your lodge) but we cooked our own dinners as it is a little bit too far to drive into town for dinner. Plus sitting on the deck looking out was just amazing - the view is just stunning.
The pool is solar heated and Large enough to have a good swim around in. There was nothing better than resting of the wet edge looking out to the rainforest and watching the birds and the very friendly goanna.
We walked down to Crystal Creek - if you have seen the photos of the hammocks over the stream - then its exactly the same in real life!
The creekside cabins are along the stream and looking from the outside seemed very quait and private.
We had a massage booked through the resort. The massue came to the lodge and gave a very relaxing massage. We also did a bush walk and checked out the Games room which had stacks of DVds and plenty of information.
We will be back one day and we woulD highly recommend!
