A bit disappointing
Nature feel, quiet, not too far from Cairns
We have been this resort approx 3-4 years ago, and we were there for 2 Xmas. We really like it and have enjoy ourselves and all was good and comfortable. However, this time we were disappointed as the resort is a bit run down and the beautiful pool was not that clean. We have 2 rooms there and they both are not very clean, as one of the top bed have spider web around both corners. The fan and couple of the lights are not working at all. It just not the same as before!

This is a wild looking hotel with friendly staffs.
Big flat! Big Big & Clean clean & friendly and free, with DVD provided
Actually named Kuranda Rainforest Resort. Please amend the database. Otherwise, tourist keep on finding the wrong place. And the TV is a bit small

Too quiet for me
Room was large, friendly staff, quiet surroundings
It was really cold at night. The room is very roomy but not really that great. Heater was lacking. Some ants crawling around as it is located on the mountain. Overall, I dont recommend it for holiday staying. Though it may be good for those who wants a quiet retreat

Different but not high standard
Different, lovely jungle pools, Indonesian food
This place has potential to be beautiful but needs a lot of tlc, we liked the room it was not the cleanest room I've stayed in, a lot of fixtures are run down. We drove my low car to our room and scratched it on the way out as the "road" is only for small suvs ad its tight and very run down. We tried the spa but the hot water is not fantastic and as it was winter we didn't stay in the spa too long. It was nice for something different but not nice if ur particular about cleanliness (like cobwebs and mouldy furniture).
