Stunning rainforest valley views from our five lodges: Byron, Lamington, Numinbah, Springbrook and Tamborine
- Spacious, architect-designed open plan with premium appliances

Higher in the Retreat, each Luxury Mountain View Lodge presents a breathtaking aspect to the surrounding landscape, magically combining lofty mountain ridges on high with tropical valleys of genuine old-growth rainforest and stoic trees that have stood for centuries. The beginning and close of each day are imbued with the epic, aeons-old mystery of an ancient forest setting.
Including the deck, the floor space of the architect-designed open plan is over 150 square metres. A cosy, romantic double-sided fireplace screens the bedroom from the generous living area, with a big clear skylight (with block-out blind) above the bed for stargazing. Reverse-cycle air conditioning keeps you comfortable all year round. A walk-in wardrobe provides generous space for suitcases and the like. In the bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows integrate the stunning beauty of the rainforest with the indulgence of the luxury double solid marble bath or freestanding spa bath. Recycled French oak floorboards add a glamorous patina throughout.
The private decks on these Lodges incorporate a stainless-steel roasting barbecue and plunge pools with wet edges on three sides. When the sun is shining the solar-heated pool will be warm for all but the four coldest months of the year. In winter, when our environmental responsibility takes precedence, you can indulge in the cosy warmth of the double-sided fire inside.
The modern energy efficiency technology in the Lodges makes your stay extremely comfortable while being environmentally conscious. In addition to the thoroughly insulated walls and ceiling, the superior insulation properties of the floor-to-ceiling ‘Comfort Plus’ glass very effectively keep the heat in during winter and out in summer.
Our five Luxury Mountain View Lodges, Numinbah, Springbrook, Byron, Tamborine and Lamington, have everything that makes all our bungalows comfortable and luxurious, plus much more.
Each lodge accommodates one couple only.
NOTE: We regret that we cannot book Luxury Mountain View Lodges individually, as the allocation of the Lodges is adjusted to suit the flow of bookings. As each Luxury Lodge has its own placement within the Retreat it will also have its own subtle differences, but each Lodge provides an absolutely premium and truly unforgettable rainforest getaway experience.

We had the most perfect mini moon
4 October 2018Numinbah Lodge is a slice of heaven on earth. Food and service was divine and accommodation was incomparable. Will be telling everybody we know about this haven.
Thank you for an amazing stay
17 December 2016There could be no better place to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The Numinbah Lodge at the top of the retreat was outstanding. We loved the pool, the chorus of the cicadas and frogs, the lush rainforest, the birdlife and the privacy. The service by the staff was also outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful time.
Nothing short of INCREDIBLE!
19 May 2017An absolutely stunning place of serenity, privacy, beauty and relaxation. We came here on our honeymoon and had the honeymoon package. We also received an upgrade, to the mountain view lodges and the property were absolutely stunning. The rooms cosy and relaxing with warmth, fireplaces, spa, comfy beds and lounge. The dvd library range, board games, orchard and walking tracks meant a great balance between doing things and sitting back and enjoying the views. The food too is delicious and generous and the staff were friendly.
Best surprise ever!
24 April 2016Absolutely out of this world. Surprise trip and best surprise ever! Amazing Lodge, amazing food, amazing tracks. Perfect.
Amazing Couples Getaway
22 October 2018If you are looking for an amazing getaway, Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is simply the best. Great place to relax & reconnect. We both just loved our entire stay. Meal baskets are very nice and easy to prepare at your own time. Private and secluded Villas that look out through wall to ceiling glass. Private infinity swimming pool, and outdoor deck. BBQ for cooking outdoors. Internet and phone reception can be limited, which I think was an advantage to hang out and focus on each other.
Perfect Romantic Getaway
16 August 2018We stayed just 2 nights in the Lamington Mountain View Lodge last week. Exactly what we needed, a relaxing romantic getaway in a beautiful location. The lodge was very modern, clean and well appointed. All the staff we interacted with with friendly and never imposing. The dinner and breakfast we had were also fantastic. We live on the Gold Coast, and hope to visit again.
Our hearts are full
31 July 2018What a magical, peaceful and serene retreat. Perfect for celebrating our 6th year in love and life together. Thank you Crystal Creek Retreat for creating such a place. Our heads are clear, our hearts are full and our minds have been free to wonder in awe.
A beautiful stay
18 August 2018We had a beautiful stay here for our part two honeymoon. The staff are amazing and so much attention to detail has been made. The lodge is beautifully appointed with a peaceful lookout. Will be back.
Love every bit of it
30 December 2017The Mountain View Lodge is absolutely spectacular. We love every bit of it, particularly the pool and the expansive views from the spa bath and the king size bed. It was a very relaxing stay, we will be back in winter. Thanks!
Peace and serenity to die for
13 June 2018To all who had an involvement in our stay: Thank you one and all! The accommodation was superb, the food and manner in which it was presented was new to us and suited us to a tee. The quality was excellent! The accommodation is beautiful, the vista is breathtaking. The peace and serenity to die for. We shall sing your praises to the highest.
It did not disappoint
23 March 2017We celebrated our five year wedding anniversary here and it did not disappoint. Our lodge was amazing and our time here has been everything your website says it will be. We look forward to visiting again in the future.
Believe me it's sensational
15 December 2017I’m still here in my Mountain View Lodge and believe me it’s sensational. I wish we had booked 6 days instead of 3. Everything is as promised. I no longer feel 66 years old, maybe 10 years younger … although the fabulous bathroom’s mirror tells a different story. Suggestions … Don’t forget your iPod.
We never want to leave
26 September 2016Crystal Creek has by far been the most beautiful getaway. The Mountain View Lodge was incredible. I would advise everyone to come here. Not to mention my best friend asked me to marry him on the beautiful rainforest walk. We never want to leave.
We can't fault it
10 October 2018Crystal Creek was such a beautiful stay, for 3 nights was absolutely perfect. So generous with the food, it is definitely more then enough!! Recommendation to Pavlos, for airport transfers was amazing, he was so helpful from the flight to the retreat allowing us to stop on the way. Perfect stay !! We can’t fault it (Maybe some tomato sauce ;))
10 out of 10!
8 October 2016A perfect way to unwind and celebrate our 10 year anniversary. P.S. We will be back for another stay.
