We stayed here overnight on the last day of our mini-break to the Sunny Coast, and it was the highlight of our trip. We stayed in a falls villa with the hot tub - worth every penny. So romantic sitting at the open fire place with some local wine, and a cheese platter made up for us at the Maleny Dairy. Although it doesn't appear fprivate, once you're in the villa or onthe deck at the hot tub, you do feel like you're a world away.
The restaurant for both dinner and breakfast was gorgeous - intimate and warming. We had the thai banquet for dinner, and everything from the coconut soup to start through to the red curry duck was absolutely stunning. It would be close to one of the best meals we've ever experienced. The staff were faultless in their service and this really added to our luxury dining.
It is a little pricey, but if you get the dinner/breakfast package then the food alone makes the whole experience worth it. We absolutely loved this retreat, and I'd recommend to anyone wanting to spoil themselves or their partner, for a luxury weekend in the mountians.
