“Rain Forest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We stayed at the Silky Oaks Lodge for three nights. The rooms and main lodge were on a hill overlooking the Mossman river. It was very beautiful and fit in with all the trees and flora. The food was excellent and we enjoyed sitting in the private library for dinner.

This is luxury. This is boutique luxury. Very pricey but worth it for a few nights. Food was excellent. Treated as if you were a guest in someone's house. It is off the beaten path but I have never been to a place quite like this. Wish it had fallen midway during our 30 days AUS/NZ trip so that I could just luxuriate and relax. Just a note, you will do some uphill and downhill walking on the premises. We did not take advantage of the kayaks or water activities due to other planned activities off site.

Room Tip: Every treetop suite is beautiful. You will do some walking so be prepared

I fell in love with this hotel. It had a definite WOW factor. I would have no hesitation at returning here if ever the opportunity arises. It poured down with rain one evening but that added to the pleasure and aura of the place. Full of character and charisma. The building and decor fully fits in with the environment and enhances it.
I had a meal in the restaurant. Again, very good, no disappointment and excellent relaxed service. I felt completely comfortable on my own as I did in the bar chatting to the French Barman. The rooms which are like tree houses are awesome. Very nicely decorated again fully in keeping with the terrain.

Silky Oaks lodge was towards the end of a fabulous trip in NZ and Australia as a second honeymoon planned for us by DesigNZ on Travel. We wanted diversity in our trip and as part of that were keen to see the rainforests of North Queensland, so our stay at Silky Oaks was pefect being amongst the trees in our own perfectly formed tree house, Staff were freindly and helful in helping us get the best of our stay, we ate in on a couple of nights and the meals were very good, walks in the rainforest were a highlight and we enjoyed the nearby Mossman Gorge and learning from our Aboriginal guide.

Wow...from the moment we arrived at Silky Oaks to the moment we left, we loved our stay here!

We arrived to a champagne cocktail in the bar that overlooks the Mossman River which is an incredible setting with great views and lots of wildlife to enjoy.

Our room was such luxury with a comfortable bed, lovely big bathroom and private balcony with our own hammock. It was such a nice touch that scented candles were lit around the lodge every night as part of the turn down service.

The food was amazing although the evening menu was quite limited however this was fine for us as we only stayed for 2 nights. The a-la-carte breakfast was amazing with lots of choice and unlimited fruit, coffees, cereals etc to go with it!

One of the loveliest memories for me was doing yoga each morning overlooking the river...such a great way to start the day and unwind! We also went on one of the self-guided walks which was great (make sure you pack some trainers!) There are also some guided walks and activities, however, it rained very heavily whilst we were on our stay so these were not available!

Finally, the staff were great and extremely friendly and helpful!

We would highly recommend this luxury rainforest retreat!!
