compare all our accommodation

Our Luxury Rainforest Lodge, named Cedar Lodge, integrates striking contemporary design and a liberating spaciousness. Including the deck, the 175-square-metre floor space of this open plan design is the most expansive of all our accommodation styles. And yet the Lodge’s massive floor-to-ceiling windows offer a surprisingly intimate and lush rainforest aspect. Nestled in the valley of Crystal Creek, the views are dominated by ancient trees and nearby mountaintops. Outlining the high horizon to the north is the majestic ridge of Mount Springbrook. Amazingly open yet extremely private, this Lodge is over 300 metres from the nearest bungalow.

The huge private deck has a private infinity plunge pool, electrically heated to 34 degrees during the day, whatever the season. A cosy, romantic double-sided fireplace warms both the bedroom and the generous lounge area. Reverse-cycle air conditioning keeps you comfortable all year round. In the bathroom, floor-to-ceiling windows integrate the stunning beauty of the rainforest with the indulgence of a luxurious oval-shaped double spa. Limited-edition prints by Joan Miro and eye-catching interior design touches lift the ambience of this lodge. The generous kitchen features a host of premium-quality appliances.

For all this comfort, Cedar Lodge retains a superb level of sustainability, with discreet energy-efficiency technology. In addition to standard insulation in walls and ceiling, the Lodge also employs innovations such as ‘Comfort Plus’ glass in its expansive windows. With insulating properties far superior to standard glass, the Lodge successfully keeps the heat in during winter and excludes it in summer.

This Luxury Rainforest Lodge has everything that makes all our bungalows comfortable and romantic, plus much more. It accommodates one couple only.

Testimonials from guests at Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat
5 stars on TripAdvisor
Fabulously romantic
7 May 2017We stayed 3 nights in the Cedar lodge, celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. The isolation and privacy was amazing, making us feel like we were the only people in the forest. The staff were fantastic, with an immediate response to a concern about the pool, whilst also being considerate about not intruding on our privacy. The lodge was very well equipped, with everything required for a luxurious stay. We would love to return one day to celebrate another special occasion.
