Truly amazing spot
6 October 2016Spent two nights in a Luxury Mountain View Lodge celebrating our anniversary and we were both blown away by our room and the amazing view – we felt like we were on some tropical remote island high up in the trees. The solar heated pool was perfect for the warm weather we had – the amenities provided in the room were just what we needed to enjoy cooking lunch and dinner and then the last night we got the beef massaman meal provided which was really nice. Staff were lovely on arrival and left you to it throughout your stay giving you plenty o…
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.
15 July 2019ccrr had been on our radar for many many years. i can very happily say it lived up to all expectations and surpassed them. this is the place you come to when you want to get away from it all and enjoy some privacy. if your batteries needs recharging, this is the place to be. if you need a digital detox, you’ve come to the right place. if it’s romance you’re after, look no further. an easy thirty minute drive inland from murwillumbah delivers you to this pristine little slice of paradise, surrounded by national park. from memory there’s on…
So private and magical
21 November 2017Thank you Crystal Creek for an amazing honeymoon. It was so private and magical it felt like we were the only ones here. The food was amazing and so much of it. We couldn’t have asked for a more romantic and relaxing honeymoon. We will be back.
This place is amazing
14 March 2017My husband and I stayed for 2 nights and it definitely wasn’t long enough. We stayed in the Cedar lodge which took our breath away, the furnishings were lovely, the pool was awesome and there was heaps of food from the hampers so we never went hungry. The view from the rooms overlooking the rainforest was superb. We definitely will be coming back but maybe for a bit longer.
Private and relaxing get-away
12 August 2018We stayed in a glass terrace bungalow and it was lovely. Very clean and simple, yet comfortable and luxurious. Beautiful bathroom with heated floor and great view from the spa bath to the outdoor shower area. We played scrabble on the deck, listening to the whip birds and watching the bush turkeys scramble about below. The dinners delivered were really good, especially the Massaman Curry. Breakfasts yummy too and we used the Nespresso machine each day. Lots of good videos. We did the rainforest walk, too – steep but enjoyable.
7 April 2016My partner took me away for a surprise weekend for my birthday and he couldn’t have picked a more perfect place. I’m constantly on the go with work and training and this was the perfect distraction. We love doing some sort of fitness so the rainforest walks were nice. We picked the hardest one to do which was the lookout walk and took 1hr 40mins there and back but the view was worth it! We had a couples massage, picnic provided and all meals provided. They deliver the food the day before so we got to cook it all up on either the BBQ or in…
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 honeymoon was perfect
20 March 2017Such a beautiful quiet blissful place. The food was amazing, the staff were lovely and the views are to die for. Our honeymoon was perfect.
We have relaxed and unwound
24 September 2015Thank you for a beautiful place to come and spend our 20th wedding anniversary. We have relaxed and unwound. The food and walks were amazing. The accommodation is fantastic. Perfect thank you.
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.
Simply Brilliant Luxury
15 June 2017Stayed here for Wedding Anniversary long weekend getaway. My husband booked Lamington Lodge overlooking rainforest mountain. Everything was superb! Accommodation outstanding, spacious, comfortable & beautifully designed. All meals divine, fireplace ready, dinner ready in fridge as organised. Rainforest breathtaking, interior & exterior lighting perfect as well as loads of candles. Totally Private top shelf No Work luxury getaway. Would return & recommend in a heartbeat.
Creek side cabin
1 November 2019We have just returned from two amazing nights at CCRR which we thoroughly enjoyed. The high level of cleanliness and luxury they are able to maintain in the middle of the rainforest is impressive. We ordered dinner for both nights, the lamb and beef bourguignon. They were hearty, nutritious, and generous servings – we regretted bringing lunch with us because the dinners could have stretched to cover both meals. I loved the privacy, luxury, and surroundings. Hoping to go back one day! Would recommend to other nature lovers looking for indulge…
Very sad to be leaving today
1 October 2019There are honestly no words for how amazing & just stunning everything is here! 😍 We stayed in one of the Mountain View Lodges for 3 nights as part of our Honeymoon & wow, just wow. From the rose petals when we walked in to the beautiful views & absolutely everything in between! The food was delicious, we had the bacon & eggs basket as well as a chicken & beef hamper which were all super easy to cook & super yummy. The stunning views from the spa bath & pool are just beyond incredible, the candles everywhere & complimentary wine was beautiful, …
A weekend of serenity!
15 April 2019A beautiful weekend retreat in the rainforest where you can escape the hustle and bustle of life and just kick back listening to the sound of the creek. Beautifully prepared food brought to your cabin where you can enjoy by candle light and then kicking back in front of the log fire and enjoy the peace and quiet.
