Great stay!
We had a great stay at Daintree Wilderness Lodge! Service was excellent. Breakfast was small (fruit consisted of microscopiccally cut slices of strawberry and melon). On the other hand, dinner was great and not too expensive. The room is great: located in the middle of the jungle. Do not expect a luxurious room however: Based on the room, the hotel would have to be rared a 3 star hotel. Considering the location I think this hotel is value for money.

Amazing Rainforest Retreat
My husband and I stayed for two nights in this amazing rainforest retreat--tree houses nestled within the lush rainforest. The room was very clean and bathrooms updated. You can see the rainforest through the skylight running the length of the cabin, amazing! Staff were wonderful: welcoming, pleasant, and helpful providing a map of the area and suggestions for local attractions to meet our holiday goals. The hike on the property is worth a go--we saw several beautiful birds, lizards, and plants. The resort location is well marked from the main road and parking is available. Breakfast was included and delicious--three options including a hot selection. Dinner is available at the resort. You must request your selection and meal time in the afternoon. We suggest eating in the resort because it was delicious, ample, lovely view, and there are very few options between the river fairy and Cape Tribulation where the sealed road ends. For us, one of the best features of the area was its remote location and lack of tourist amenities: few people at the beach, just a few restaurants, couple of convenience stores, and the gas station closes by early evening. Certainly, there are options for hiking, rainforest boardwalk walks, kayaking, Great Barrier Reef snorkeling and the Daintree Discovery Center is worth a look--we saw wild Cassowary there and near there, drive carefully. The Daintree Creamery offers delicious ice cream made from local exotic fruits--yummy.

A Quiet Night Away
We decided that since we have just moved back to Sunny Cairns that we wanted to have a night away to enjoy what we have at out back door. We were lucky that that weekend we had the whole resort to ourselves it was great, the place is so quiet and you are right smack in the middle of the rainforest. To get to and from your rooms you walk along a wooden walk way - this is elevated off the ground, while walking on the walkway you are guaranteed to see the resident cassowary's walking along the ground below you, that in itself is an experience. There are 7 Lodge Cottages and they are all spread out across the resort so privacy is what you get, I do recommend to ask for cottages in the high numbers 4,5,6,7 as the first two cottages are set at the front of the property. The rooms a lovely, spacious and very cool. The ceiling has a clear panel that runs across the length of the room, its great to look up from you bed and see the rainforest above you. The shower was impressive too as it was tall and had great pressure and was hot. Breakfast was great, everything made fresh to order. Overall we enjoyed our stay and defiantly will be back. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

The Lodge is an eco-friendly and small hotel perfect for a peaceful stay in the rainforest. The rooms are very comfortable and private. The lodge's raised walkways over the forest floor allowed us to get very close to a cassowary in its habitat on our last morning - fantastic experience. The food is of high quality; both breakfasts and the evening meals were delicious. Bernie and Ben were enthusiastic, knowledgeable and very helpful when asked about tours, places to go, etc. Highly recommended for anyone who is looking for a quiet stay in truly beautiful surroundings.
