Relaxing and a beautiful stay”
Great atmosphere and relaxing environment. Lovely people. Downside the hike/trek from carpark to retreat was a fair distance and challenging walk recommended for fit and adventurous individuals but car lifts are available. Overall very happy and would visit again.
Retreat into nature”
Sanctuary is an amazing place. The basic cabins allow you to feel at one with nature, whilst still being comfortable. The main building is beautiful and provides alternate areas to relax and enjoy the view. The menu is delicious and changes daily. There are kitchen facilities if you take your own food. The bushwalk to the car park is good to walk off any excess! We saw cassowary chicks right next to the main building - magic.
Bit of a trek to get to the reception ~ 700m bush walk. Could ring and get collected from car park. Food there was EXCELLENT. happy we booked a cabin with walls. Is 11km from mission beach - learnt that when we got there. Overall - happy with the retreat
Beautiful, secluded location. Super friendly staff. Main building has amazing views and gorgeous construction. Restaurant is good and reasonably priced, and there is a community kitchen if you want to bring your own food. The huts are as pictured, basic, but nice. The grounds are lovely, and the yoga studio is nice. It's a really sweet place to stay.
Good, will do it again someday
Excellent night in the rainforest”
Excellent night in the rainforest. Maybe pack some bug spray as a backup for mosquitoes. Very peaceful and tranquil. The staff are very friendly and accommodating with all your needs. Would definitely recommend
Great location/ service/ accomadtion”
Awesome... wish I had longer
cool experience for nature lovers”
We were lucky enough to see a cassowary on the designated hotel walking routes!! We had the alfresco hut with a cold water shower and a toilet directly outside our room on our little veranda. Our room was basically a huge Miskito net as walls around the bed. It was a very interesting experience, especially since you could hear all the jungle sounds at night and also the soothing sounds of the ocean near by. Remember to bring a torch, Miskito spray and extra batteries for your mobile since there are no electric sockets in the hut. Although plugs and Wi-Fi is available in the main building
The cabins with glass shower wall are fabulous, excellent view of the valley and the ocean. Bit of a trek up the hill, you need to be sure footed and have some fitness.
