The perfect romantic getaway in the rainforest

Our romantic hideaway resort is nestled amongst 250 acres of pristine rainforest within the beautiful Northern Rivers of NSW, just 50 minutes from the Gold Coast airport.

The 13 luxurious villas and lodges are individually positioned throughout the private estate, carefully hidden amongst the contours, offering incredible rainforest and mountain views, and providing the utmost in privacy and seclusion.

Each spacious villa provides the perfect setting for a romantic escape, equipped with cosy lounges and log fireplaces, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, comfy bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms and large couples’ spa baths. All accommodation has fitted kitchens, with outdoor Weber BBQs, and both internal and external dining areas. Our expansive Luxury Mountain View Lodges offer large decks with private plunge pools.

The retreat hosts 8km of picturesque rainforest hiking trails, home to many rare and endangered plants and animal species, including 400 types of flora. Secluded rock pools and hammocks are nestled along our creek where you can while away the day listening to the songs, twitters and calls from a myriad variety of our 150 species of resident birds.

Allow our spa therapists to pamper you with a deep tissue massage, then retire to your own secluded spot for a peaceful picnic and chilled glass of wine.
