I had the absolute pleasure of staying at CCRR in the cedar lodge and I was incredibly impressed with everything that the retreat had to offer! The room was sensational at the atmosphere was beautiful, secluded and warm. The food was delivered fresh everyday and was delicious! The spa was huge and the view of the forest was amazing. We...

Sometimes, these ‘retreats’ leave you both ‘cold’ and light of pocket. Second rate ‘luxury’ items and poor maintenance is revealed only once you’ve forked out a small fortune to ‘rejuvenate your senses’ (or some such claim). Fortunately, Crystal Creek remains at the forefront of ‘chill out’ accommodation, with a knowing nod to the decadent, but also a clear understanding of...

We have just returned from a 3 day break at the retreat and we loved every minute. This break was for our first wedding anniversary and birthday, so the peace and quiet was welcomed. From the moment we arrived our needs were catered for. Our luggage was drove to our cabin which was toasty warm as soon as we walked...

There are no negatives at this wonderful retreat. The cabins are amazing with all the usual perks but the little extras like the outdoor hot shower in the rainforest and the glass walls in the bedroom that overlook the rainforest and mountains make this place worth the money you pay for it. We were lucky to have beautiful clear weather...

My partner and I stayed in the Springbrook Mountain Lodge in June. It was really lovely, heated floor in the bathroom and heated towel racks (which was great for winter). The place was extremely clean and well kept.. The walking tracks are really pretty, however there is heaps of leeches up there! So make sure you put some spray on...

My husband and I spent a couple of nights here for our last anniversary and it was absolutely amazing. We were treated to yummy breakfast hampers and a dinner with wine that was awesome. Room is first class and is completely stunning, double sided fireplace and candles everywhere. The heated plunge pool with deck was outstanding. Amenties were great (huge...

My wife and I spent a weekend in June 2015 staying in the Springbrook view Mountain lodge at CCRR. Whilst you pay a premium price for the experience, we were thrilled with our stay. We have 2 young children and it was the first time in a while that we had time away for just the 2 of us. We...

We stayed here for our honeymoon in the spa creekside cabin. Beautiful setting surrounded by rainforest. Meals were delicious and very filling so worth it. Staff were helpful and very friendly. Next time we plan to stay in the mountain lodge

We stayed for three nights in a spa side cabin, the cabin was really nice and an excellent spa. We ordered the delicious dinners, a picnic hamper and breakfast one morning. Whilst the food was good, I didn't feel the price was justified especially when you had to make the bacon and eggs yourself for nearly $40! However, the hammocks...

We went to Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat for our honeymoon. This place is seriously incredible. We stayed in the Creekside spa cabin for 5 nights, we could not have asked for anything more, well worth every penny. This is the perfect location if you are looking for peace & quiet. We recommend it to all our friends. We will definitely...
