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.
