We give this place a ten out of ten! Amazing food, we had degustation, totally recommend it, the service was fantastic, and the cocktails delicious, although we only visited for dinner, we are definitely returning in the cooler months to stay, the whole place looks just beautiful.

We stayed in 2 bedroom villa, wonderful, everything you could need. Heavenly bed. Would have preferred a movie channel (premium or world movies). The breakfast was excellent but we were disappointed that simple pancakes could not be provided for the 7-year old in our party. This should be possible given the cost per night.

Having been over 10 years since we were last at The Tamarind (pre-Spicers), and having very fond memories, we were looking forward to 3 nights back again. Once again, it was fabulous with everything so well done. The accomodation, the food, the spa were all tremendous but what truly makes a place is the staff. Spicers know how to do...

Spicers Maleny was the best couple of days away that I have ever experienced and I will defiantly return soon. It is such a relaxing atmosphere you feel very welcome and the rooms are completely private. Very well designed for privacy for a romantic escape. The service was excellent and the food was awesome. I cant wait to return!!!

There are lots of beautiful places to visit and if it was just geography or food or architecture, Spicer's Tamarind Resort would rate up there. The element that puts it into the stratosphere as a getaway is the people who run and work in the resort. From the kick-off they were just sensational with nothing too much trouble. You would...

I visited Tamarind Retreat for a executive team retreat in December. It was perfect for a true corporate retreat. Amazing setting. They set the conference room up for us lounge style. Our meals were fabulous; some in the restaurant while others were brought unobtrusively into the room. We enjoyed some drinks around an outdoor fire pit in the evening. The...

The property itself is great, with all the items that a thoughtful host provides for guests. Heated towel rails, comfortable bed, ... The down pillow that I had was too high for my liking and the other pillows were no better. I would have liked a pillow menu so I could have had one that suited my neck better. The...
