We needed to get away from the extreme bustle of life for a while. We chose this place because it look far enough away from civilization but close enough if needed. This place is a hidden gem. We were lucky enough to stay in one of the rainforest view lodges. We looked out over the tree tops down the valley....

Our stay here was spectacular. The creekside cabin has an awesome bedroom surrounded by rainforest. Having a spa in the enormous bathroom at night looking through the skylight was spectacular, as was sitting on the balcony over looking the creek. We didn't try there meals which looked nice, because we only support organic produce so we brought our own food....

We stayed here this week for 3 nights in a gorgeous glass terrace cabin. Completely surrounded by the rainforest. No prying eyes! Fantastic spa in the ensuite, outdoor shower which was heaven after our bushwalk. We opted for the chillout package which included all our breakfasts, dinners and 1 picnic lunch. The meals were great. Homestyle meals delivered to our...

This is my second review for Crystal Creek, and I hate doing them: it's hard enough to book in as is. But honestly, this is probably the best accommodation in Australia. We stayed for a full week this time, and I was curious to see if that would be too long. Nope. We did a lot of walking in the...

This is an absolutely stunning location. You are surrounded in completely uninterrupted rainforest, natural creeks and wildlife. We spent 3 nights here for our honeymoon with the food packages. The food was delicious, and the staff managed to slip in and out to drop off meals without us noticing. We only seen 1 person on check out even with our...

We had a lovely babymoon(trip before the baby arrives) here in October 2015. Very relaxing location and our cottage was fabulously luxurious. We loved the infinity pool, and the open fire. Its in a rainforest so we should have been prepared for a bit more rain than we were. The retreat is well within the reaches of easy day trips...

What a setting for such an unbelievable week spent at this great resort. Close enough to the Gold Coast or Byron Bay for a trip with world class features in your own private bungalow to enjoy the rainforest from your own private pool or outdoor dining area. Could not have asked for a better place to spend our time away.

We stayed two nights in Satinash-Glass Terrace, secluded and luxurious. Magical views over the tree tops and up to the escarpment. Spent hours sitting on the deck just soaking it all in. King Bedroom was to die for....walls of glass put you at one with nature, perched above the forest floor. Ensuite had heated floor tiles...very nice. Big two person...
