This was our second stay at Crystal Creek and again we were not disappointed! On our first stay we chose one of the Mountain View Luxury Lodges, which we loved. This time around we chose to try the Rainforest Luxury Lodge, or Cedar Lodge. This Lodge was nestled into the rainforest and was amazingly private. On arrival we were met...

Keep in mind this is a rain forrest retreat not a 5 star hotel. Theres no concierge or bell boys. Its in a rainforest so theres some bugs. My wife and I stayed 2 nights in the Booyung Rain Forest Canopy Bungalow and were extremely impressed. Check in was a breeze and the male who checked us in explained everything...

We stayed in the Springbook, Mountain View lodge for 2 nights. The view was magnificent and the silence divine. The lodge was beautifully appointed. The DVD collection one of the best and the walks surrounding the property unique and beautiful. We would self cater next time as you had to cook your own breakfast and the dinners were reasonably basic....

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is Perfect in every way. Just Arrive and Relax in the privacy of your Bungalow. Wake up to spectacular views and the sounds of the rainforest. Take an outdoor shower, wander to the rock pools for a refreshing dip and relax in the hammocks suspended above the falls. Enjoy beautiful rainforest walks throughout the day and...

We were given a 3 night Chill Out Package by a lovely couple whose wedding we had in our garden. A beautiful peaceful place staying in Pandorea. This morning I did the Lookout Hike and returned by the Boundary Circuit. A good workout before breakfast. Our meal last night was delicious.

My partner took me away for a surprise weekend for my birthday and he couldn't have picked a more perfect place. I'm constantly on the go with work and training and this was the perfect distraction. We love doing some sort of fitness so the rainforest walks were nice. We picked the hardest one to do which was the lookout...

My husband & I returned to Crystal Creek on the 26th March to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary as we stayed here for our Honeymoon. We didn't stay in the same cabin as last time (Creekside Spa) we thought we would stay in the Tamarind Bungalow - AMAZING I am so glad that we returned, you can't fault this...

This was a truly beautiful, romantic accommodation! We were lucky enough to get a complimentary upgrade to a mountain lodge complete with a bottle of Moet and rose petals decorating the lodge. The accommodation is truly luxurious and private, and as a nature lover, I loved essentially living in a 'glass cube' in the rainforest. Views were stunning and the...

My boyfriend and I booked online for a romantic Valentine's Day weekend and we were beyond impressed with both the accomodation and the amazing staff at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat! From checking in to checking out, everything was a breeze! They had instructions on how to use everything in the lodges and a map for the walks which we found...

I'm not in the habit of writing negative reviews - but even the pickiest of travellers would struggle to find fault here! The location is stunning, our cabin with the floor to ceiling glass around the bath was something to behold. Being able to drink chilled champagne while sitting in a hot bath surrounded by the sights and sounds of...
