Total privacy combined with friendly welcome and staff made for a restful stay. Walks to the Falls and around the property and boardwalk, private deck spa and massage, plus fine dining all highly recommended. Amazing menu choice for dinner and breakfast. Will definitely return to this very special place. Go there.

Tamarind Retreat is very aptly named. Drawing inspiration from the tropical Asian tree, the setting and restaurant reflect the ambience and cuisine of the exotic. And Retreat, it most definitely is. We stayed three nights and loved every minute. Arriving early afternoon on a very warm December day, we headed straight to the pool. After a refreshing dip, we enjoyed...

I booked into a number of spa treatments. I was greeted with a rehydrating beverage and welcomed warmly by Kitty. The venue is beautiful, calm and felt very much like a retreat. Sarah did my facial, pedicure and manicure and it was fantastic. Afterwards she made me a herbal tea and offered me a recliner to rest in for as...

Had a lovely stay at the Spicers Tamarind Resort on their Foodie Getaway. Where do I start - the Villa (#3) was very comfortable, quiet, relaxing, facing the green canopy of the surrounding bush, the staff there are fantastic, very friendly, helpful and seem to help you relax - now the best part the restaurant - we had a 5...

Whenever we have the opportunity for an extravagant weekend away we love to come here. The ground, staff and food are amazing. We were fortunate enough to spend this trip with a large group of friends and family to celebrate my birthday. The food was spectacular and the staff were more than accommodating for such a large group. Having lived...

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...

We had an amazing spa experience followed by a brief but wonderful stay at the hotel. The whole experience was first rate, particularly the very personalised service. Thank you to all of the team at Spicers Tamarind!

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...
