Heaven on earth! Luxurious rainforest experience
Posted 09-Feb-2016 on Hotels
The first word that comes to mind is "heaven". We were greeted with welcome drinks while our room was being prepared (they make sure your room has soft music playing, lit candles, welcome chocolate). Everyone was so helpful. It was hard to adjust to not having TV or wifi in the room, but that's what this place is about - disconnecting! We were able to go to the DVD room and watch movies when we wanted to, which was a huge plus! The resort has a library, board games, small gym, and a gorgeous pool. Silky Oaks gives you the total rainforest experience. We went hiking from the lodge (they give you hiking trail maps) and had a great time exploring the scenery. We saw a kangaroo on the property and we so enjoyed watching the wild turkeys walk around! Our bungalow was an absolute dream - the hammock on our balcony, the bathtub with the rainforest right outside the window - I can't express how beautiful this place is. I love this place and will be dreaming of coming back here.
