That place was stunning. The setting is amazing; it's green, peaceful and tranquil with the river bubbling in the background; the staff and service was impeccable; the quality of the food and drink was impressive. We'll be back.

Silky Oaks Lodge was spectacular. The location on the Mossman River was amazing and the walks through the rainforest incredible. The Lodge is a fabulous place for a relaxing and special holiday.

Thank you for your feedback :-)

5 out of 5
Amazing 5 star experience from check in right up until check out! We were greeted with a welcome drink upon arrival while the porter took our luggage to the room. Once we finished our cocktail we were taken to our room and shown where everything was. All staff in the hotel were super attentive. The restaurant is amazing. high quality food with a menu that changes slightly every night, so that there are new options if you stay and eat in the on-site restaurant for multiple nights. The Yoga class in the morning near the river is a must! Gardens are well maintained and the rooms are super clean and we also had nightly turn down service. Tealight candles await you every night. The rooms have a beautiful scent as well. It is a 25min drive into the heart of Port Douglas but given the quality of food and atmosphere we found that we didn't want to leave the hotel. The Mossman river is peaceful and there were not many mosquitos around the resort which is great! A truly relaxing experience where every guest is treated like royalty! Do not hesitate to stay at this hotel!
