“Fantastic location for an intimate wedding”
Reviewed 25 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

My husband and I stayed at Jade Ridge four nights and held our wedding at the house. 25 guests attended the wedding, and we all fit very comfortably. The ceremony was held on the grass with beautiful green plants as our backdrop, then we went upstairs for a sit down reception in the open air dining area.

The hosts were lovely. They ensured that we had everything we could need, including organising a skip which was very helpful in cleaning up after the wedding. They showed us how the music system works, how to turn on the pool lights, etc.

Jade Ridge is the perfect location for a wedding. We had plenty of space on the lawn to set up an aisle with four rows of chairs, and space at the front for an arch, the celebrant, bride and groom and signing table. It was no problem to easily fit four trestle tables upstairs to hold the reception, and we could have fit many more tables just by shifting some furniture.

The bar was fantastic! It is completely separate from the kitchen and has its own room, which like everything at Jade Ridge, can be opened up to make a giant open plan living area. There were three fridges under the bar, as well as a wine fridge. We did not run out of space to keep the alcohol cold, and guests enjoyed sitting at the bar.

The kitchen is well equipped. We hired party hire equipment such as plates, cutlery, serving dishes and glasses, however there are plenty of those things already at Jade Ridge. The fridge and freezer unit in the kitchen is very large too. The appliances were high end and in good working order. The coffee machine was a life saver.

We used the pool every day that we were there. It is very relaxing and perfect for escaping from the tropical heat.

The spa bath was also really lovely. You can open the windows right up, and relax among the nature and outdoors. The jets were really powerful and it smelled nice.

The rooms were perfect. We had eight people staying at the house, but it was never crowded. The master bedroom has a very substantial walk in wardrobe, and ensuite with a giant two person shower and double basin. The beds were comfortable.

The views across the cane fields were so beautiful, especially at sunrise.

We had a magical time at Jade Ridge, and I cannot recommend it enough.

“An Exceptional Discrete Gem in the Tropics”
Reviewed 7 August 2015 for a stay in June 2015

My partner and I value greatly privacy and quality. Both of these are assured at Jade Ridge. Our host prepared the venue as we instructed and this allowed us both to enjoy the week in a relaxed and stress free state.
The ambiance was delightful. Awakening each morning with the sun streaming across the Coral Sea was the tonic needed to release the tension of the busyness of the past few months.
Attention to detail in both decor and taste has a high benchmark at Jade Ridge . If one appreciates quality then this is the place.
For a premium experience we both felt the price was in line with the service/product.
I am certain that we will make Jade Ridge a feature in our 'Escape from Sydney' Winter plans for the future.
BTW.... having a 2012 Rohrlach shiraz whilst watch the lights of Port Douglas
take hold at dusk is a superb way to end a relaxing day in the tropics.
Seriously consider this option when heading north.

“Amazing View of Cane fields and Ocean! Must see”
Reviewed 26 June 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Amazing view of the cane fields and the ocean from a distance a must see!
Also, possibly the friendliest service and walk through of the house for our wedding destination, thanks you made us feel right at home.

“Awesome Place”
Reviewed 24 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

This place is fantastic. We had such a relaxing time and will be back for sure. The view is amazing overlooking canefields and the ocean. Close to Port Douglas and the Daintree which makes day trips very easy. The property itself is well kept and has all the facilities/luxuries you'd get in a big hotel. Tess (the owner) was great to deal with and gave us plenty of ideas on what to do. I recommend this olace highly.
