spicers tamarind retreat

Posted Sep 17, 2011 on Hotels.com
I wanted to step out of my life for a few days and go somewhere that I didn't have to answer phones or speak to anyone. This place was like going to heaven. I went to bed at night listening to the nearby waterfall and revelled in the tranquil setting. The staff were so friendly and helpful, the lodgings were absolutely amazing (loved the hot tub on my balcony) and I never felt awkward being on my own. The Thai restaurant was worthy of the highest rating and as I sat in the sun eating breakfast in the Thai inspired surrounds, I had to pinch myself. Oh,....I forgot the beautiful spa attached to the retreat. Had two beautiful massages!!!. This was one of the best holidays I have ever had and I can't wait to go back!

Perfect place to do nothing and relax!

Posted Mar 29, 2011
Such a quiet, private retreat, perfect when all you want to do is get away from reality and do absolutely nothing!! Only 6 "pavillions" (each room is its own little building), everyone is there to relax so you know you won't be annoyed by any noisy guests. Each pavillion has its own private hot-tub - not a modern plastic one, but a beautiful wooden one, which results in the water having this beautiful teak aroma! Inside the pavillion, if it is cold you have your own real fireplace, a huge dual shower bathroom, a TV/DVD in both the lounge room and bedroom. The grounds are beautifully manicured, and only a 100m walk down the hill is a beautiful little river with a [very little but still relaxing] waterfall, that you can sit by or play in the water [if you don't mind the temperature!! The Tamarind restaurant was nothing short of AMAZING. I can honestly say it is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to! The flavours were amazing - the only bad thing about it is the meal sizes were a bit too big, so we couldn't fit in dessert!! Prices were very reasonable too for an a la carte restaurant. The location is a couple of km's from Maleny, so you can also drive in to town and go for a lazy walk up the main street to look at the shops or go to one of the many cafes.
