      More about Ferntree Rainforest Lodge

      More about Ferntree Rainforest Lodge

      This environmentally friendly eco-resort sits right in the heart of a lush coastal rainforest. Ferntree Rainforest Lodge is only a short walk from the Cape Tribulation Beach and its famous mangrove boardwalks. The cape is named by Captain Cook in 1770 as the trouble he ran into before grounding his ship on a nearby reef. Today Cape Tribulation is a perfect destination for a holiday. There are plenty of activities for everyone such as bushwalking, horse riding, kayaking, snorkeling, or fishing. Ferntree Rainforest Lodge offers the best setting as its low-pitched buildings are designed with a focus on preserving the natural beauty of the area. The magnificent gardens are designed to attract rainforest creatures. The rooms are elegant and decorated with a unique rainforest theme that is fun and produces a general feeling of tranquility.

      Ferntree lodge is soooo beautiful. Quaint little cabins in the Rainforest. Privacy. Relaxed atmosphere. All the amenities you need. Very clean and well kept. Beautiful pools. Free breakfast included. A walk from the beach and local eats. If you are looking for your own little cabin that is a step up from a Hostel but still has the social atmosphere, pick Ferntree.

      Beautiful rainforest get away!”

      Our stay was beautiful. We have been travelling around the world for the last 3 years and this place would be in our top 5 of places we have stayed. The location was great in the rainforest; lodge size was great and bed was amazing!! The pool was complete serinity and just what we needed. The only negative for us was the food at the restaurant... One of us is veggie and the only option was a curry which was bland and watery. The other wanted steak which they had run out of and because we don't eat fish chicken was the other option. We felt it was very limited and could be improved. But overall it was beautiful here!

      Great place to stay in Cap Trib. ”

      We found this place to be a delightful place to have a break from the business of life. We were upgraded to loft unit (never used the loft) the bed was very comfortable, bathroom spacious and nice porch to sit and relax. We saw the smaller units we had booked, further up the hill and they were smaller cabins but looked comfortable so don't know what the inside looked like. Lots to walks and wonderful quiet beach. Safari looked more like a back packer place but was nice and clean too. So we would book Ferntree again.

      We stayed in the garden loft room - two adults and a 6 year old child. I was nervous about the stairs to the 6 year old's room when I booked but he was fine and loved his room up in the trees. I was very happy with the space we had, the facilities and being so close to nature. There were Cape Trib board walks and restaurants close by. We ate at the hotel restaurant each night. I'd definitely recommend the accommodation to others.

The room and resort were lovely, great to be in the rainforest among all the plants and animals. Pro tip - get up early if you want to see/hear any of the wildlife really makes it worthwhile.

Thank you for your feedback about the WIFI and indeed it is a good to have a digital detox. In Cape Tribulation there aren't many accommodations which offer WIFI at all and so we offer what we can so guests who would like to stay connected can :) Thank you again for your stay! Take Care!

      Nice idea needs luck of paint and a decent clean”

      Pool is great, love the lodge but lots of cobwebs inside, smelt awfully damp and needed a decent clean. First room decking was rotten and dangerous so we asked to be moved, which we were. Lots of bats which was great to see and hear and nice rainforest atmosphere. Need covers over breakfast food/drink. Shame no remote for dvd player in communal area. Location pretty good, walking distance to shop,restaurant etc. Staff very friendly, site just a little bit run down

      Beautiful Location: Cruddy Facilities”

      The owner said he only took over Ferntree over a year ago and that it had been ‘run down’, which was a slight understatement. After giving me no less than 3 different sets of keys to the dorm I’d paid for (arriving in the rain at nightfall), the only way to access the room was due to the kindness of one of the 4 women *giving* me her key, saying she could use her friend’s. Perhaps that’s why it was advertised as a ‘4 bed dorm’ rather than the 5 it turned out to be: they chucked in a 5th bed and didn’t bother to get a new key cut! Additionally, reception promised a kettle in the room. After insisting this finally happened , but why provide false info in the first place? He also tried to charge me twice for the same night! There were no screens on windows or doors; no cooking facilities: guests forced to use their pricey restaurant; no cleaning. BUT due no doubt to weather (perpetual rain) my dorm-mates cleared out and I was left with an entire (if dirty) room to myself at dorm prices!

      Ok but shutting down and misleading discounts”

      Nice location, clean comfortable rooms

      Firstly, we booked into Ferntree as the advertisement on Agoda claimed the rooms were in 'Ferntree Resort' and were reduced from $. Turns out we weren't getting a deal at all. The rooms were part of 'Ferntree Hostel' and the standard price was $98. When we questioned the lady at reception about this she said it was the fault of the agent. Also, we discovered on arrival that the resort/hostel was closing at the end of the month and that the restaurant was closed. We also discovered that there were no longer any daily activities for guests. Dramas aside, the rooms were pleasant and in a nice location. The gardens were also quite pretty. Also, besides our initial disagreement with the staff they were friendly and helpful. If Ferntree were not shutting down it would still be a reasonable place to stay, if a little overpriced.

      Great location for rainforest retreat but the rooms lacked certain facilities and weren’t very comfy. Bed was very hard and we had bed bugs. Understandable we’re in the jungle but having the bedding changed daily would help eliminate this. We were there 2 nights and weren’t offered fresh linen, towels etc.

      Fabulous setting ideal location for exploring Cape Trib and surrounding area .”

      Has the potential to be a fabulous place to stay, unfortunately is in need of some much needed maintenance of the lodges and other public areas, although the lodges themselves are clean etc on the inside, the outsides need some much needed reverbishment. Pool area needs to be cleared more regularly and some new loungers etc need to be added. Staff were pleasant and helpful and the restaurant and bar is adequate. Would stay there again in the future if all the above was or is rectified but with other places to stay in and around the area I would certainly look at those first. Stay there for 3 days .
