We wanted a luxury rainforest experience, and we were thrilled. Our room was very private, and had everything one could want to define luxury - fine bed linens and towels; the total bath experience; the hammock on our porch; a sofa for reading; wine, fruit, and cheese; soft music playing when we arrived in the room, fragrant candle burning. . . .
We stayed in one of the Deluxe Treehouses at the far end of the property, and it is a hike to get too and fro; not so far as much as up and down - good exercise! At breakfast (included in our room rate) we had lots of fresh fruits, excellent omelets, all we could ask for - even a server who rode Harleys with her spouse, so mine had a good time taking with her. We spotted a Ulysses butterfly, and lots of parrots.
The walk through their property gave us a good introduction to plants we saw later; it and may other activities are free to guests (mountain bikes, yoga, kayaks, DVDs, etc.). The hotel is handy to PD, GBR, and Daintree, so easy drives to what we wanted to see.
The flowers in the lobby and dining room were so spectacular that we couldn't believe they were real. We only dipped our toes into the pool, but it is a beautiful setting. Our only regret is that we didn't book in for a week or more!

Beautiful hotel very close to the beach and main street for shopping, bars and restaurants. It was the bit of luxury I needed after 4 weeks of travelling. Lovely to swim in a freshwater pool after a lot of accidental gulps of salt water from the ocean!
