I was at Spicers for a retreat. Couldn't have gone to a better place for this. Everything was amazing. Everybody was so friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. The grounds are gorgeous. So relaxing and rejuvenating.

We have been here many times and just keep gravitating back. Fantastic location for a conference, romantic get away or peaceful time out. The location is short 1 hour drive from Brisbane and 10 minutes drive from Malaney and sits in a very pretty peaceful part of the world. Accomodation is magnificent and food and services are 5 star. Just...

From the moment you enter the property you know you are going to experience something special. We arrived at night but the ambiance was there, walking to our room we were greated with music playing in the room and the temperature just right. Waking up in that surrounding is exquisite - the grounds are so well maintained, couldn't wait to...

Just another amazing Spicers retreat that never let you down. Gorgeous villa with hot tub and grounds to wander and relax in. The meals and spa were 10/10. Loved every moment of it! I want to try every retreat now.

This was our third visit with another set...

Not usually ones for spas and pampering, in January my son and his wife treated us parents over from the UK to a surprise 3-night villa stay at this heavenly retreat set in lush rainforest. One of the best accommodation that we’ve ever stayed at and certainly the villa’s bed was the best that I’ve ever slept in. Highly recommend...

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.
