What a lovely find in the Sunshine Coast hinterland. Everything is thought of and more. Enjoyable relaxing and very special. Ali, Xochi and their family do everything to ensure a great stay. Our package included a massage, dinner in and a restaurant night out. Lots of other thoughtful extras like home made cookies, bubbles, breakfast basket and fresh croissants. Smart tv for a cosy night in beside the fire. Or magazines and a hot chocolate. Perfect for a special weekend away.

Lovely cabins set in the rainforest. Very private and relaxing with log fire, well equipped kitchen, smart TV, bluetooth/USB music system, and DVD. The owner was very welcoming and everything you could possibly need was there for you. When we arrived there were long stemmed roses in a vase, music playing, a wonderful breakfast basket, port, chocolates, candles and more. Our private deck had a hammock, table and chairs and BBQ. We have had a home cooked meal delivered to our room one night as we did not want to leave our cabin which was delicious. Fresh hot croissants were delivered every morning. The double spa bath faced a big window overlooking bush. Devine! We will be back.

This place has recently recently been voted the number 1 most romantic hotel in the world on TripAdvisor, so we had some pretty high expectations and we weren't disappointed at all! The retreat is a boutique hotel, with only 6 adults-only pavillions on-site run by husband and wife team Ali & Xochi. Both Ali & Xochi were in the reception area when we arrived and warmly welcomed us to their little slice of paradise. After a seamless check-in, Ali showed us up to our Pavillion and told us everything we needed to know to enjoy a great stay. Even though I had seen several pictures of the rooms online, it was still better than I had imagined it would be. The hotel provided us with a delicious breakfast hamper, including fresh eggs from their chickens and yoghurt from Maleny Dairies. They also deliver freshly baked croissants to you each morning. They were so delicious! Ali & Xochi have thought of every little detail you need to enjoy a romantic and luxurious weekend away, so if you have a special occasion coming up and are looking for a great place to stay, then I can't recommend this place any more highly to you. It got pretty chilly but between the air conditioning, the fireplace and our matching Oodies, we managed to stay toasty warm. Honestly, do yourself a favour and stay here when you are visiting this region - you won't be disappointed!

This is the perfect place for pure relaxation! Recovering from recent surgery, the experience was just what I needed! The privacy and tranquility make it hard not to enjoy. The sound of the running creek along with the beautiful birds and wildlife create the perfect relaxing environment. You can even hand feed a King Parrot that comes to visit! The log fire place is also great for this time of year. The owners were wonderful, helpful and very accommodating, no detail was missed. I would definitely stay again.

Had an absolutely magical weekend staying in one of their cabins. The location is so relaxing and peaceful with a lovely little walking track. It is run by a husband and wife team that make sure everything you could want for your weekend is available, including daily fresh baked croissants! Absolute gem of a place to stay and we will definitely be back.
