The property itself was stunning. Beautiful streams, trees and hideaway cabins made you feel like you were in another world. Loved the views and sounds of the rainforest as we slept. Great food and a nice comfy bed at night. All in all great weekend away. Only disappointing thing was that the fireplace wasn’t operating.

Stayed in Villa 4 at The Escarpment

The stay was only meant to be for 2 nights over the weekend but we asked for an extra night stay. Hospitality service was excellent and quality of stay was fantastic. The only thing was that the room was naturally to dark and not enough natural sunlight so needed to use lights to brighten the room most of the time. Other then that our stay was fabulous! I would definitely recommend this retreat to family and friends :D

Beautiful resort bad on-call masseuse

Pros: Complimentary hot breakfast - This is a wonderful idea! The gardens and craftsmanship of nature Friendly reception Spa bath with a beautiful view
Cons: Unfortunately I had to knock two whole stars off because the massage was horrible. I paid $110 for my poor body to be beaten and thumped.
Location: The location is up high in the mountains and the view is stunning We highly recommend the local authentic wood fire Italian pizza Winery & Caves
The beautiful green scenery and vine walk through to reach our front door was beautifully crafted. As I opened the door there was a beautiful lavender type scent that smelt divine. The room was stunning and very happy to see some yummy chocolates and wine on ice greet us with a cheese platter in the fridge. I am a huge cheese and wine enthusiast and these were delicious. The sounds of the birds, frogs and other creatures of nature were hypnotic and wonderful to listen to at night time. The log fire was wonderful to sit by and warm my feet and the position of the air conditioner was at just the right angle for when it was a little hotter. Our expectations of the actual resort itself exceeded our expectations. I deeply apologise however I needed to knock two whole stars off my stay because the massage I had was terrible. $110 is a lot of money to pay to be beaten and thumped in agony. It was not enjoyable. I told the woman three times during my massage she was hurting me. My poor head copped a beating she was so rough. The next day I was so sore that I couldn't enjoy my stay as I had to lay in bed and recover. I could barely move. I even had bruising on my feet! I was so upset at this experience I cried. She asked me how I enjoyed my massage and admittedly I said "Ok thank you" but it was because she asked me right in front of her next client and I felt obliged in such a position. This experience really upset me. My husband had a different masseuse and loved his massage.

Wonderful retreat

Beautiful location surrounded by trees with great views. Friendly helpful staff, the room has everything you could anticipate you would need. Great local community and shops. Make a reservation at three little pigs for dinner - best dining experience I have ever had. The only downside is the cabins are very close together and the balconys look into each other and into the opposite cabins room so we had to keep the blinds closed. The cabins share a wall and you can here everything, however with respectful neighbours this isn't a huge problem. if the cabins were better separated this would be perfect.
