Beautiful rainforest retreat. The log cabins are all surrounded by rainforest you hardly know that you are there with other people until you go for breakfast! Would highly recommend staying here. Margaret was a fantastic anc caring host. We will be back!

This hotel was value for money considering the location. Gil was very friendly and accommodating. If you don’t expect too much of the zoo you won’t be disappointed. I wouldn’t recommend entering if it wasn’t half the normal rate. Crocs were cool.

Peaceful getaway

Would definitely recommend staying here, as we will be again when we return. Was a unique experience for us - beautiful cabins in the middle of the rainforest yet still comfortable and inviting, with plenty to do nearby. The food served was also amazing, as was the hospitality and service

Peaceful and relaxing

Pros: Small, secluded and the convenience of a bar and restaurant
Designed for privacy and relaxation, the cabins are surrounded by rainforest and well away from each other. Perfect for a quiet getaway.

Daintree Wilderness July 2016

We stayed 5 nights. It was a unique and wonderful experience of living "in" the rainforest. The Lodge was very comfortable with everything we needed and the staff was friendly and did all they could to make our Daintree experience very memorable. Limited internet, but hey, you can't even use smoke signals in the rainforest. Would definitely recommend.

Perfect hideaway

Pros: Great set up, comfortable bedding, delicious dinners. Breakfast was fantastic. Appreciated commitment to being eco friendly too.
Location: Closely situated to beaches, boardwalks, waterholes, other restaurants, lookout and ferry. Recommend taking time to explore Daintree and a night walk.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Daintree Wilderness Lodge. Perfect way to enjoy quality time together after our wedding. Loved the layout, tranquility, room set up and friendly and attentive staff. Look forward to our next visit!
