High ceilings, comfy bed, comfy sofa. We stayed in Villa 4 right at the end. Place was quiet and peaceful - perfect for a getaway from the bustling city. It has a natural fireplace, something I do not get to 'play' with normally. Breakfast was awesome.

This was one of the dream hotel I wanted to go since last year. It's a bit pricy, but since I am a member on booking.com, I got 10% off. Loved the high ceiling in the villa and we purposely went in in August hope we can enjoy the fire place, which we did! Staff is very friendly and they...

Hi Rebecca S, We really appreciate the time you've taken to share your experience and we are especially flattered to learn that you included us in your dream hotel list. P.s. Thank you for mentioning the tick, as it would benefit other travelers to take note of this known fact and to be aware of them when out bush walking.

It was the second time my boyfriend and I visited this retreat and it was clear why we chose to come back again! The villas are just beautiful, they are cleaned daily while you are out and they are just the right size. Totally enjoyed having fires each night while it rained outside and hearing it on the tin roof...

We didn't stay here, but drove up for the day for a massage and champagne lunch. The massages were fantastic!! Yes, the 'day spa' isn't really a day spa - but the quality of the masseuses makes up for that! Oh, they really got into our knots!! We then ventured out to 'the edge' and had a wonderful champagne lunch....

I really enjoyed my escape at The Escarpment this past weekend. It was a lovely retreat to relax and enjoy some downtime for a few days. The villa was very comfortable although a little dark but this was expected with the winter sun set lower in the sky. The food was delicious, staff very polite and helpful and the location...

Lovely large room but shared wall with next door villa does create noise issues . Privacy not 100% guaranteed either as guests are encouraged to tour the gardens so anyone might pop by your window at any time. This means shutters and blinds tend to remain closed which does make for a very dark room. Wood burner fire is cute,...

The Massage and Therapists were lovely but after a two hour treatment most people are feeling a little light headed and drowsy. I stumbled out of the treatment room and was shown the door.

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our honeymoon and we definitely saved the best until last! The rooms were spacious and relaxing, we loved the rainforest being right there, and the walks around the grounds with all the lookout spots that were provided. The housekeeping was wonderful, and even on days when we...
