5 out of 5
The accommodation provided at Egyptian Dream Retreat was excellent and very comfortable. It is only a five minute walk to the centre of Maleny, which has a wide range of cafes, restaurants and bars. The owner of the establishment was very attentive to your needs and requests, but at the same was very unobstrusive. The services provided at Egyptian Dream Resort, such as massages and various forms of therapies, were excellent.

A beautiful setting, inside & out!

My partner and I had a lovely stay! The views, the attention to detail in the rooms, the decor, the food, the hospitality made for a special experience in this quiet location nestled in the hills over Maleny. A memorable stop over! 😊

Looks great online, disappointing

Owner seemed lovely at first but the place was not ready on arrival due to her mistake, she asked us to come back in 2 hours but had done nothing. She then offered for us to rest and shower in another room that had been cleaned until ours was ready. Their was pubic hairs still in the shower in the "clean" room. We were appalled but too embarrassed to say anything. She lives there and her dog is clearly allowed in the rooms as there was dog hair everywhere. When checking out she took photos on her iPhone of our credit cards then accused us of "fear based thinking" when we asked her to delete them. Even though we witnessed her misplace her phone on two occasions. She likes to stay and chat so not much privacy. She then took our bank details as she had promised us a $30 refund. It's been three months, no refund. She spoke badly of previous guests (no doubt she will do the same about us although we were extremely polite the entire time). Her most expensive room was beneath us and when we walked lightly from bed to bathroom the downstairs couple complained. Basically this is a 3 bedroom house decorated nicely but filthy. She blamed her "cleaners" though it's obvious she's the only one ever to clean the place, and she doesn't. Expensive, no view. This barely rates as a bed and breakfast definitely not a hotel. No sound proofing, her dog barks from the next room too. Go to somewhere on Mountain View Rd and you will get picturesque views at less than HALF the price.

Guests upon arrival appeared to be the perfect couple and exceptionally nice, asked best advice where to purchase a house in Maleny to set up business similar to what we do and advised us that they were on a spiritual path, lady ensuring we knew that she was a high level spiritual teacher. However upon entering her accommodation she started hallucinating, seeing coakroach poo in kettle and eggs under kettle, I was summoned to personally check kettle & nothing there except water, she demanded several washes with chemicals, she went right through whole studio checking for plagues of creatures & dirt that were not there. Truly a most horribe nightmarish experience entire time they were here with them playing extremely loud music whole night & day, furniture being shifted around, verbal abuse with other guests who complained. Offending guests were requested nicely to observe our policies or leave, they chose to leave by sneaking out & leaving key on door which is against our policies, our high quality exotic antique furniture from overseas was left slightly damaged. We felt compelled to offer our nice guests 2 complimentary nights and an Egyptian Spa treatment, both guests were truly traumatised & so were the staff. We are still unsure whether they were sent here by a competitor or releasing negative energies or they were high on illicit substances. Best Wishes & we hope you realise that your behaviour was very disrespectful to everyone concerned & that we are a place of total relaxation. Our page & information on our website explains clearly what we offer.

Old fashioned hospitality B&B 5 min walk into town

Luxurious Egyptian themed room, we felt very pampered and enjoyed relaxing massages from Dalila our host and massage therapist. Great views, very comfortable bed and a quick stroll into town. Only place we stayed that the host welcomed us with old fashioned hospitality. We arrived very late at night but Dalila welcomed us and had us settled in no time. The organic breakfast was perfectly to our taste and Dalila went to a huge effort to make sure we had everything we needed. We have booked to come again shortly for another stay.

Not good

Pros: Good view
Cons: A lot
Location: Maleny is good
Steep driveway then lots of steps. Intrusive owner of house. Early in the conversation my wife said she needed to lie down and rest but the owner proceed to talk for half an hour. Room converted bedroom with bathroom. Hard bed. To Strongly scented. Hot water took ages to come through. Yellow postit telling us what to do. Owner almost would not allow my wife into room because she had shoes on. My wife explained they were orthodics and she could not walk with out them. The owner then explained in Japan we would not be allowed in the house with shoes on. My wife pointed out we were not in Japan.

Dear guest. We would have preferred if you had advised us of your severe health issues prior to arrival so we could have recommended other accommodation. You failed to follow any of our policies whilst here and left our accommodation room wide open, unlocked & did not check out with us upon leaving our property which contravenes our Insurance and security policies. Best wishes

It should be advised as a B&B

Although well presented and themed, the accommodation was more of a residential B&B than a retreat as it was advertised on the website. The massage services were conducted in a separate room to the ‘suite’ and, while quite enjoyable and relaxing, they ran longer than described, delaying possible plans to explore the local town. And any chance of dinner - only 1 Food place open at 8:30pm - She tried her best to deliver- just not what we thought - by advisment - she was a very lovely lady

Hi. Thank you for your review. We are sorry you did not receive what you expected but we have advertised exactly what we are, a fully registered business Retreat & B&B, we provide massages but also many other forms of treatments, we do have a large well equipped far infra red sauna & spas areas. We are not commercial and provide unique treatments & relaxation for individual needs & couples. We informed you that your massage & healing time would take longer as you presented much more than was expected & this was okay with you, it is is my professional duty not to end the treatment until healing is completed & safe for you to return back to your life. You informed us you would be dining in your room not outside restaurant. Maybe you should have booked at another local retreat stayed in a cabin & paid double the price & no views. Cheers.

Hi. Thank you for your nice review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay & that this place is querky & lovely & Dalila did all for you. Sorry to know your internet was not great but it does depend on which provider & which side of room you are, ours is perfect. We have continuous solar & gas hot water so we are unsure why your 2nd shower was cold. We hope to see you again & thank you for being lovely and respectful. Cheers
