Thanks so much for the feedback and we hope you enjoyed your stay in paradise! We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed to find there was no fridge in the room. We are an off grid resort supplying our own power and doing what we can to provide our services in an environmentally friendly way. This means we must be aware of our energy usage and the appliances we supply in the rooms, as well as a whole host of other things. We do state the available in room and onsite facilities, such as communal kitchen and fridges, in our description so we are sorry to have disappointed in that regards. Thanks again for choosing to stay with us on your adventure! Team Safari Lodge

Fantastic, relaxed and surrounded by nature. Clean and calm with sufficient shared facilities. There’s great food nearby too - Whet Restaurant & bar in particular. Great staff, amazing snorkeling and ridiculous nature everywhere.

Only had fan for cooling was ok for time of year, only three showers in bathroom facilities provided at least in womens bathrooms probably not enough given customers from the snorkelling tour invited to use them afterwards. Was a clean and neat facility however staff friendly and helpful great service

Pros: Comfortable, wonderful spot in the Daintree, and great prices!
Cons: Not much can be improved - if you're after campsite accommodation without having to bring camping gear, this is a great option!
Cabins are small but comfortable and right in the heart of the Daintree - a wonderful spot to explore north Queensland!
