Very romantic! Gary was extremely sweet and helpful upon check in! The Escarpment has everything you need for a nice romantic getaway. We stayed in Villa 5. Very roomy villa with high ceilings, fireplace and relaxing hot tub. I know some of the other reviews mention privacy but the way the villas are situated, I really don't think anyone can...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Breakfast is between 8:30am-9:30am. This usually suits early and late risers. For health and safety reasons, we have an obligation to keep our foods fresh and so cannot keep our buffet (which consists of highly perishable foods such as dairy) open more than an hour. Our guests' health and safety is our...

A beautiful romantic setting amongst the bush. Rooms are large, comfy and cosy. Great big comfy bed and a fireplace and spa bath. Gardens around windows could provide a bit more privacy, however it was obvious that there was landscaping in progress. Our villa (2) would have been even lovelier with the water feature running. Enjoyed a massage with foot...

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review. We try very hard to make every guests' stay a pleasant one and was concerned that you felt your treatment was rushed. Please do give us a call as we would like to find out what happened. We have since spoken to our therapists and reiterated your statement...

We visited the escarpment retreat for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a beautiful relaxing time. The staff were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. The room was exactly what we were after, a cabin with a fireplace which made it very cosy. The room was getting a little old and had a bit of a musty smell...

Beautiful place to stay. It's very quiet and relaxing with amazing views and the rooms are very cozy. I will highly recommend staying at the escarpment retreat but remember to take some warm cloths as it can be cold being in a rainforest environment.

A great place to switch off (we did literally - no phones or screens for 3 days). The morning we couldn't make breakfast Gary rustled us up a morning snack the night before - my husband was impressed. After my spa treatment I emerged totally chilled out and the therapist had Googled how best we should travel to Sea World....

Had a wonderful weekend stay at The Escarpment Retreat. The villa was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. The spa bath was fantastic and the lovely four poster bed was heavenly. It was the perfect place to sit back and relax in the tranquil grounds. The food was absolutely beautiful and the breakfasts were to die for. I would definitely recommend...

Stayed here for our wedding anniversary, upon check in whilst my husband of 23 years was looking for a place to park the car the receptionist took at least 2 phone calls if not 3, so I didn't have her undivided attention.

Thank you for taking the time to review our property. Our retreat is situated in a mountain known for its heritage rainforest. While beautiful, we wage a constant battle with driving animals out of our villas, a fact which you unfortunately found out. Our villas are fumigated twice a year. Our breakfasts are definitely NOT microwaved. The free range eggs...
