Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The drive inland from Brisbane to get here is jaw droppingly good! It takes in the Glass house mountain range and other vast landscapes giving you some great photo opportunities. The hill to get to the resort is the steepest I had ever experienced, the car almost couldn't make it!! The resort itself is very peaceful, surrounded by rainforest with a stream running through the back, there are some great walks that you can do. Our accommodation was spacious, homely and very clean and modern. We had a lovely hot tub and we're made to feel welcome with a hamper of locally produced food. The guests also bring fresh croissants every morning and leave them on the veranda which is a lovely treat! The local town of Montville is worth exploring and has some great little eateries, lots of choice for gluten free etc. We spent 3 nights here and it was the highlight of our trip, the staff were there to make sure that we had everything that we needed. Top tip: leave some crumbs on the veranda and watch the local bird life we saw some lovely parakeets and it made our mornings very pleasurable. Highly recommend.

Great location, perfect if you want a relaxing holiday. Rooms have everything you need, loved feeding the birds, and the little rainforest walk located on property.Worth a trip! Montville and Maleny township is great for local gifts and locals are friendly.

Our fourth trip back. Absolutely love the place. It's beautiful and relaxing. A great break away from the stresses of daily life. The cabin is modern and very comfortable. Spa, log fire, breakfast hamper and daily warm fresh croissants make it a wonderful stay.

We absolutely loved the location. Close to a lot of tourist attractions and walking tracks.Fantastic room with great customer service,excellent food and roaring fire. Had great in-house massages too. HIghly recommend it.

Had a really nice stay in the log cabins albeit we would have liked to stay longer to experience it in more depth, very clean and well appointed cabins would stay again if we are in the area in the future.

Absolutely loved my time here. Felt very nurtured and cared for in this beautiful cabin and rainforest. Looked after with my gluten and dairy free, nothing a bother. I will be back!! Thank you Every morning my warm cake, luved it

We read all of the reviews before we got here and were worried we might be disappointed. No way were we disappointed it was clean, well equipped, the breakfast hamper was perfect not too much but we could have asked for more if necessary. The hosts were lovely but at the same time left you alone. The croissants were the best. And I don't really like croissants but mmmmmmm they were so good. I generally say I don't do the same trip twice. This might be an exception to my rule.

Wasn't sure exactly what to expect, the pictures don't do this place justice. The cabins are amazing, private, clean, and overall it's a beautiful place to just sit and enjoy the scenery. I will definitely be returning.

This was the first night my wife and I had spent away from the kids in years and Narrows is the perfect place. Immaculately presented. We loved everything - the chocolates and port on arrival. The colourful birds, rainforest walk, hammock, spa, fire - and - amazing bed! We planned to go to a beautiful local restaurant, but couldn't pull ourselves away, so we ordered a wonderful home cooked meal to the villa.

Didn't want to leave was absolutely the best break away, the serenity & service outstanding, The rooms were beautiful, breakfast was devine & visit from the puppy every morning made it even nicer.. Would recomend to anyone.
