Romantic Rainforest Getaway”
Our stay at Pethers Rainforest Retreat was wonderful. The staff at check-in were friendly. Great quality furnishings, comfortable bed and pillows. The surrounding rainforest was so peaceful & the gardens amazing. Dinner on Friday night in the lodge was delicious with great atmosphere. Loved the privacy and morning breakfast basket.
Thank you for your kind review Beverly. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Nice for Christmas”
We really enjoyed our stay at Pethers, our room was gorgeous and so secluded, the rainforest you see out the windows completely private so no other guests can see in. Free chocolate and sparkling wine on arrival, robes provided, and a nice fireplace (it did actually get cold enough to use it!) The breakfast basket was delivered every morning and had a few different items that were really nice and just enough for us. Not normally the kind of money I would spend on a hotel but you do get a lot for what you pay in my opinion. Only thing is no wifi in the rooms but there is free wifi at reception and they kindly provided us with a dongle (which worked well) but we had to top it up. Would definitely go back.
Delighted you enjoyed your stay and look forward to welcoming you back for another Christmas or other special occasion. You'll be pleased to know we're looking at setting up wifi in the treehouses. It's technically difficult because of all the large eucalyptus trees blocking the wifi waves, but we'll find a solution.
My husband and I unfortunately only had the chance to stay at Pethers for just 1 night. The driveway into Pethers feels like you're driving into another world but be aware it is very narrow and 2 cars can not pass by each other. Check in was a very smooth, easy process and we were escorted to our tree house, #1. Although it is in close proximity to the main lodge it still felt private, you can slightly see into the neighbouring tree house but that didn't concern us. The interior was exactly as the pictures on the internet depict and it is b beautifully furnished, the lounge is quite comfy also. My husband loved the spa and spent some time just laying in it admiring the view. The bed was comfortable and we both slept quite well. There are no curtains or shutters on the big glass windows and doors so we were woken early but we're both early risers anyway. The quality of our meals in the restaurant was fantastic, it was a bit of a shame that the servings are very small though, bread and 3 courses didn't even tough the sides of our stomachs. Be aware the polished floors of the main lodge are slippery so ladies if wearing heels walk gently. All in all we loved our stay and would happily return.
Thank you for your lovely review Nadine. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Absolutely stunning stay”
I think this is the best room i have ever stayed in. Beautiful secluded tree house on mt tamborine. The room is huge and the furniture and decorations were beautiful. Absolutely stunning bed and massive spa. Big deck out the front and woke up with a beautiful view of the rainforest. Most magical experience and i highly recommend it for couples looking for a romantic weekend away.
Thank you for your lovely review Flora. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Pethers is In a beautiful location. We only stayed one night - however the staff were friendly when we booked in and showed us to our room. The accommodation is beautiful and it was nice to get away from reality for the night to such a beautiful location. I would definitely stay at Pethers again.
Dear Tarnya, Thank you for your lovely feedback! I hope we can welcome you back to Pethers again sometime soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager

Thank you for your wonderful feedback Sam and we hope to welcome you to Pethers Rainforest Retreat again soon. Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
We stayed 2 nights and it was amazing. The room was beautiful, the rainforest is gorgeous. Breakfast was at 8.30 and dropped at the door. Juice, granola and toast or eggs or croissants. The spa was awesome. Wifi doesn't work in the rooms and reception on phones is almost non existent, but that really doesn't matter with this incredible place. Theres a toaster, kettle and mini fridge. All round perfect.
Thanks so much for your positive feedback and encouragement. You'll be pleased to hear we're looking at getting wifi in the treehouses to supplement the wifi in the Main Lodge. It's a bit tricky setting up wifi as all the treehouses are in the rainforest. Anyway, hope to have it in place by your next visit!
Large cabin in the mountain rainforest”
we stayed at pethers for 2 nights over the queens jubilee long weekend. it's not that easy to find so i recommend using an up-to-date gps. the retreat is nice and secluded but it's still quite close (about 5-10min drive) to gallery walk, which is mt tamborine's main hub. there's plenty to do there in terms of cafes, art galleries, souvenier stores and bush walks. the spa is huge, as is the shower/bathroom (separate). we were given chocolates and sparkeling wine on arrival and a breakfast hamper each day. i think the breakfast hamper would have benefited from more savoury items as it was nearly all sweet. there are no cooking appliances and the fridge is very small. the tv is also tiny but there was a nice, electric fireplace (bit noisy when the fan was on though). overall, it was a comfortable stay but some elements of the cabin were definitely outdated.
Thank you for your lovely review Cora. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Romantic brilliance ”
Our stay was wonderful. We would recommend this 5 star treehouse to anyone. We will definitely be returning to relax & enjoy the facilities of the retreat. Privacy & romance at it's best. Easy & fast check in & check out. We highly recommend this retreat to all couples or solo travellers who need a break away.
Thank you for your lovely review Amanda! We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Really enjoyed our stay at Pethers. The room was clean and very well decorated. Throughly enjoyed our breakfast basket on the deck. Loved looking out at nature from all windows and hearing the whipbirds in the morning.
Thank you Vanessa, it was so lovely to read your review! I am so pleased you found our rooms clean and pleasing and enjoyed your breakfast on the deck as well. I hope we can welcome you here again soon. Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Private, secluded resort”
We stayed only for a night. Price is a little high, but if you are someone that is looking for a relaxing getaway, you can consider this hotel. Near to town area, gallary walk, but need a car to get around. This seems to be the best "luxury" hotel in Mount Tamborine area. As we were there quite late, (around 5pm), our keys were placed in an envelope & "taped" to the reception door. Was not expecting that & a notification prior to that would have been great esp since I had left a note during the booking, with my husband's mobile number. Room is big & clean. TV flickers at certain timing & the light above dinning table as well. Otherwise, nice decor. Big spa for us to relax with complimentary wine & chocolate. Carpet on the sofa area is a little dirty thou & do not recommend lying there on it as I got a rash from it after wards. Balcony outlook the rainforest & it's a really nice view & cooling in the morning. Breakfast is served to your doorstep in a cute picnic basket. Overall, a nice place to stay in, nice oriental furnitures. My husband & I enjoyed our stay here although we got "scratched marks" on our arms & legs which we really could not explain what happened.
Thank you for your review Chan. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager

Secluded, romantic getaway in the rainforest”
Beautiful location with seperated villas secluded in a lush rainforest landscape. Open plan bungalow with dramatic floor to ceiling glass doors opening to a large private balcony. Gas fireplace and spa-bath with window view into the forest. Large (king size) comfy bed and couches. Supplied linen could be improved, but everything else about our stay was luxurious & we’ll be back for a 3rd time I’m sure. Great for a romantic getaway & a truly relaxing escape for two.
Thank you for your feedback Maxine and we hope to welcome you to Pethers Rainforest Retreat again soon. Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager

Thank you for your lovely review Sophie. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Superb stay and exceptional customer service.”
This was a truly faultless stay. The setting is beautiful, the rooms well appointed and the restaurant and bar were incredible. But the standout is the staff; we'd just arrived at the airport when we received a call to say I'd left my kindle behind and what address would I like it sent to (at no additional charge). We can't wait to return.
great romantic spot”
We had a wonderful stay here and enjoyed the bath and the massages. The food was very small servings but was really yummy. We really enjoyed our time for the night we were here. The dvd player died and the fridge squeezed all night till I turned it off, but the amazing location, staff and service far outweighed this. We will stay again.
Thank you for your lovely review Raven. We look forward to welcoming you here again soon! Warm regards, Shona Philps General Manager
Great couple retreat”
Really enjoyed the wonderful getaway I had with my husband here. The room is fantastic, completely lives up to the pictures. It is very peaceful and isolated from others. Breakfast basket was top quality. Massage in room also amazing. A place we will return to in future
