Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 August 2011

This retreat is totally luxurious and defines privacy, romance and seclusion. Went there on our wedding anniversary - a hidden gem at the end of a peaceful valley on 250 acreas of private rainforest. The property borders 3 National Parks with world heritage listing and if you want to hang out with 400 year old trees - in peace and quiet, then I recommend laying on the hammocks down at the private creek. We stayed in Springbrook Lodge - its only been open 3 weeks - expensive but its there best lodge and this was an occasion to celebrate. We had candlelit gourmet dinner (delivered quietly to our room at 2.00pm - only need to re-heat), bathrobes that define luxury, slippers and a lemon myrtle spa bath.... the sound system was incredible and the floor to ceiling windows allowed nature to come to us. Waking up in the morning to the glorious view of the Springbrook rainforest clad escarpment is one of the most powerful nature experiences of my life. You will never, ever forget the view. At night, spotlights define nature, just so you don't forget its there. Go to Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat and fall in love all over again.

Room Tip: Springbrook Lodge is my favourite

My partner (now fiance, after our stay!) took me to the Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat as a surprise for my birthday! Turns out he also had another surprise in mind, as he also proposed to me when we were there! We stayed in Cedar Lodge, the "private residence" on site, which is about 300 square metres of paradise! Luxury furnishings, including underfloor heated tiles in the enormous bathroom (massive walk-in shower and double spa bath), massive king bed and HD TV to add to the unique setting amongst the rainforest trees, with the only sounds coming from the private plunge pool and the singing birds. For the 'proposal, we had the "romantic package" including 100 candles, champagne, flowers, chocolates, the works. For a break away from it all, this cannot be beaten. The staff did everything they could to make our stay the most perfect, memorable one for us both.

Loved it, loved it, loved it.

Our villa was very private with beautiful canopy views over surrounding rainforest. Felt like we were sleeping in the most luxurious tent in the bush. It was very comfortable and had every thing we needed.

Parts of the room were quite old (bathroom and kitchen), but this didnt detract from our stay. Will be back, same time next year for my birthday (and probably the year after that too!).

We stayed just before the floods, which made crossing the several creeks to get there a little too exciting in our small 1 series BMW. But I guess it added to the adventure.

If you like the retreat style, then this place ticks the box.

We had a lovely two night stay at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat. Staying in a Rainforest canopy bungalow which was spacious and well kept. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils and there was a very high spec gas BBQ on the terrace.

Being totally surrounded by the sights and sounds of the rainforest was a fantastic experience.

The onsite rainforest tracks were a bit overgrown with the rock pools being fairly small but it had been dry for weeks before our arrival so this was probably just bad luck.

There are some fantastic nearby trails with stunning views.
