We spent a couple of nights here over Easter. We stayed in one of the Villa's which were clean, modern and spacious with views over the treetops. The meals in the bar were fantastic and the natural surrounds unbeatable.

I'll keep this pretty short and sweet, as there isn't much else that needs to be said that you can't find in other reviews: Pros - Staying in a 2 bedroom Villa gave us amazing privacy! The spa on the deck was an amazing addition. The sun sets right over the valley that you've got a view of. Big folding...

The villa we had was an excellent and lovely place, with everything you could ever want to have; however, we had no opportunity to use it to the max as there was just nothing to buy in the on-site shop. Other than a few packets of barbeque food, there was little salad, or bread or other stuff that you'd have...

Wow! Just blown away by the beauty of this place! Our two bedroom villa was superb, beautifully appointed and maintained. The infinity pool was a special treat too! We only managed a couple of short walks, they were well worth the effort, spectacular scenery.

I had the mountain view rooms, great view, very clean and comfortable rooms. Food was great, though I feel a little over priced. Staff are very friendly, and wonderful service. Beautiful surrounds and great activities. Good facilities, pool, sauna though the hot tub could be a little hotter !

It looks like you really made the most out of your stay at O'Reilly's. Yes the road is a little windy, though it does add to the experience. I guess you can't have a retreat in the city. Thanks for your review and hope to see you again soon.

Cairns, Australia

Hello O'Reilly's Rainforest Retreat team,

My best friend is getting married mid May 2017 and I was hoping to plan her girls getaway the week before her and her partner tie the knot. We were hoping to enjoy a relaxing weekend of day trekking, nature watching and catching up over wine before the big day. I was looking into accomodation around the Lamington National Park region and your retreat looks very elegant with views that are simply breathtaking! I would love to find out more about the requirements and limitations of a weekend stay, and also ask more about the local activities you would recommend nearby.

Firstly, we would have around 15 people interested in coming. What accomodation could you recommend for us so we stay together as much as possible (self-catered villas perhaps). As we are quite an outdoorsy bunch, we would each have the capacity to roll out our own personal swags to cater for those not utilising the bedrooms. So my first question would be what would be your limitations for maximum number of guests. The length of stay we would like to be there for is 3 nights, potentially around Saturday 6th, Sunday 7th and Monday 8th of May, however we would be flexible for two days before or after if those dates are unavailable.

Secondly, we would love to do as many outdoor activities as possible, so I was hoping to get an idea of local guides/companies you could recommend for trekking and nature watching that is in close proximity to the house, and any other interesting things you think would be good for our group size. Thank you so very much for your time and consideration, I would welcome a personal message with a reply sent here or via email if possible. I look forward to hearing back from you.

Kind regards,

Samantha Barnett
