“On Special offer - excellent experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Normal price is quiet steep, but on special its fantastic value. We had 2 nights in our own Spa Cabin, tucked away in the Rainforest. Very private feeling in the actual cabins, they are not exposed to each other.
Breakfast included (which is amazing). Nice area,typical Daintree flair. Staff was helpful and friendly. The Restaurant food is AWESOME, try the crocodile! We ordered a Lunch Picnic Basket to take away with us. This thing was LOADED with great food, salmon, prawns, cheese,salami,crackers, fruit and so on, all FRESH! Very Delicious, and fair price, highly recommend it! Only letdown was the second night I could not order the crocodile because it was not on the Wednesday Menu - which is odd, but nothing they could do. So we had steak - which was mind blowing. Overall very happy, would do it again.

We have stayed here twice and definately have intentions to stay again. If relaxation in a beautiful spot is what your looking for this is it!! The service and staff were great! The spa and it's fantastic treatments are superb. The lady that did our treatments (both times) makes you feel extremely at ease and comfortable. The natural products used at the spa are devine, there is even free use of some of these products in the rooms. The spa on the raised balconies are great!! All the rain forest units are very secluded you almost feel like your all on your own. From the room you can hear the beautifully calming sounds of the nearby waterfall. I have NEVER relaxed so much in my life! I love that there was no T.V to interrupt the natural sounds and beauty. This is a real couples destination. The restaurant was great, good service and the meals superb. They really didnt give us a reason to want to leave the location. We had a spa treatment then instead of going anywhere for lunch, the staff packed us a delightful picnic hamper, which we could have taken anywhere, but decided to sit on our balcony overlooking the rain forest and creek below. I can't wait for my next visit.

My wife and I have just returned from three nights at Daintree Eco Lodge & Spa.

The resort is small and tucked away off the main road into a section of the rainforest. You could be a million miles from anywhere.

We arrived early afternoon and enjoyed a light lunch in the restaurant before being shown to our room. We stayed in a Rainforest Bayan, which is better appointed and more secluded than a Lagoon Bayan (and well worth the extra money). The room was very nicely appointed, with amazing views into the rainforest and stream below, a spa bath on the balcony, and very comfy king bed. The balcony is screened so bugs are kept on the outside. A small criticism would be that the bathroom, whilst functional, was not up to the quality of the rest of the room and could have done with a refresh.

The restaurant is casual and the food exceptional. Our thanks to Sharon, who looked after us at dinner - friendly, attentive, utterly professional.

Staff were outstanding. Always helpful and friendly - Sara particularly, on the front desk, was great. Everyone made us feel very welcome. My wife also had a great massage at the spa.

This is a truly beautiful part of the world. Peaceful and relaxing. We visited at the end of the rainy season, and while it did rain from time-to-time, this did little to spoil our experience. We would love to come back.

Room Tip: Spend the extra money on a Rainforest Bayan.

Perhaps I'm a bit harsh in giving a 3-star for this accommodation, because the location is good, the food was even better, and the staff were mostly friendly and helpful. But the property itself seems to be in need of some facelift...I felt like I came there a few years too late. The reception area/lounge/TV room looked rather spartan. The small pool was not that inviting (more like a big bathtub). And the short walking track to a small waterfall needs some clearing up (the waterfall itself is beautiful, and you can get your spa treatment there). At the beginning of the track there's also a sign pointing to a "swimming hole" but when I asked the staff, it was not recommended to swim there. So please remove/change the sign.

But the most disappointing was my room, which was probably the least private room on the property as it was on the lower level instead of being propped up high for the "treehouse" experience I was looking for. Some aspects of the room were also ill-designed. The AC unit was right beside the bed, so when it's on it's blowing cold air right at you, which could make you sick. The shower only had a small soap holder, whereas they provided the toiletries in big squeeze bottles so you have to place them on the floor. A shelf would be better. The shower head was also old and could not generate strong water pressure. The fridge door in my room was moldy, and although a kettle was provided, there was no tea/coffee bags.

This is a relatively small property and it's great for a more intimate experience (compared to, for example, Silky Oaks Lodge in Mossman), as many reviewers have testified. But in its current state, I'd rather spend $100 more and stay at Silky Oaks.

Fabulous location well and truly away from the rat race. The food at the restaurant is outstanding. Congratulations to the chef. Definitely 5 star food. Very reasonably priced and good sized portions. Beautifully presented too. The tree houses are wonderful. We arrived and opened our door to find tea candles already alight and gently welcoming us. It rained heavily all night and we found ourselves listening to the rain and the jungle birds etc. What an absolute treat. Staff are very helpful. Well priced. Definitely would recommend.

We have just stayed here 3nights. Raining every day. But so much to do here or as little as you like. My husband and I stayed here for our 8th anniversary. The food is to die for, the accommodation with spa on balcony (room 8). Luke and Sara superb food service, too happy to help and so down to earth. Jacye-Leigh massage therapist - gave superb 2hr massage. We tossed up between this place, the Wilderness Lodge and Silky Oaks. So glad we cane here. Ideal and easy location to cape trib, daintree, mossman gorge, port douglas and feels like you are in the middle of a rainforest with the running creek and waterfall.

We got married last December in this most magical place!!!
We still can’t believe how amazing everything was and how beautiful and easy Jody, Sharon or better the whole team made it for us. Everything was down to the detail if location, flowers, decoration, music, food, snacks, make up artist or the amazing spa to correct my last minute mishap with nails and wait tan lines ;-). I cant thank you all enough and I still get goose bumps thinking back to our Day.
We got so lucky that the 6 of us had the whole lodge to ourselves and that the rain didn't start till after dinner which just made it more magical… and that we picked your place!!!

Again it was amazing, delicious, and so romantic, soooo special and we can’t wait to be back for one of our anniversaries!!!

Good luck to all of you and may the Daintree Lodge stay the way it is tranquil, loving and green and may the new owners be a breath of fresh air just supporting the amazing stuff that is already in place!!!!

Thank you is not enough to all of you!!!!

Room Tip: we loved the rooms all the way in the back of the property!!!
