ALL our guests are couples or single people

Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat has been designed as a luxury romantic getaway. As such, our accommodation is designed for couples only. Each bungalow has only one king-sized bed and amenities for just two people.

  • This means that additional guests, including children, cannot be accommodated under any circumstances.
  • Pets are potentially harmful to the local flora and fauna and as such are also not permitted.
  • Guests arriving with children or pets will be refused check-in and will forfeit monies paid.
