Wonderful stay

Posted 04-Feb-2017
Our stay at Silky Oaks was absolutely amazing. Our only complaint was that it was too short, wish we had more time to enjoy the rainforest and relax at our river house.

Gorgeous Rainforest Settling

Posted 29-Nov-2016 on Hotels
A stay in the rain forest in a beautiful tree house is a unique experience. It is also a great jumping off point for Cape Tribulation, snorkeling on the Reef, and doing a Dream time walk with a local 1st Nations guide in the Mossman Gorge. Silky Oaks caters to your every need.

Not just a hotel, a complete experience.

Posted 27-Nov-2016 on Wotif
Pros: The seclusion, the surrounding environment, the staff and the overall experience in the treehouse.
Cons: Wouldn't change a thing.
Location: Hidden deep in the forest under the canopy, water holes and river, swimming, canoeing, walking trails, short drive into Port Douglas
Within the first 2 minutes of arriving we knew we walked into something very unique and special, the staff were exceptional and very friendly, walking into our treehouse for the first time was an experience, the ambience created via candles, scent diffusers and music really set the scene, the furnishings are simply stunning as is the deck and hammock high up overlooking the river, which really put the icing on the cake. 30 minutes in and we are swimming in a stunning natural rock pool with not a single other person to be seen. The restaurant served up some amazing food and restaurant staff were very friendly, a kind of genuine friendly you rarely see in other hotels. An early morning canoe in the river the following morning, and again, not another person in sight, followed by a very laid back breakfast. Unfortunately we were only there for the one night so barely scratched the surface of what Silky Oaks has to offer, but my partner and I were already planning our return well before we had even checked out.

Fantastic place to stay. Great service.

Posted 01-Oct-2016 on Lastminute
Pros: Service, food, location.
Cons: A greater range of red wine, while the selection was very good there needs to be a larger price range.
Location: Great location for getting away from it all and catching up on a good book, close to Daintree, Mossman and port Douglas.
Wonderful food. I took my wife her her birthday and due to food allergies the chief prepared special deserts for her every night, can't thank the staff for making our stay so fantastic.

Daintree Living at its best!

Posted 02-Sep-2016
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing, great place!
Location: 20 minutes to Port Douglas, drive yourself 20minutes to Bruce Belchers Croc tours, Barramundi fishing nearby, swimming in the river - fantastic.
You might pay a premium to stay here but let me tell you - its worth it! Immediately greeted with welcome cocktail by Neil the amazing hotel manager. A riverside resort, literally on-top of the Mossman River in the famous gorge! You wont need to pay other tour operators for tours either as you have access to 4 hours worth of jungle walking on private property. You can also swim in private billabongs on the river! Great clear freshwater swimming! The food is 5 star, the service is 5 star, the rooms are 5 star - we loved our stay. We were treated to an upgrade which was amazing (thank you!). If you are going to stay i suggest the riverfront tree houses as they have the sound of running water and are much more light. I would definitely return without hesitation. Also, if you are doing a crocodile tour - i suggest Bruce Belcher's tours - small family operator but by far the most successful as shown by our full boat and at least 8 crocodile sightings in 1 hour. Many other tour operators on the river skipped straight past what our driver could spot.

今まで泊まった中で最高のリゾート

Posted 07-Aug-2016 on Hotels
周辺には熱帯雨林しかありません。ですが、それがプライベート感を演出しており、ボーズのシステムでBGMとして流れるヒーリング音楽とオーストラリアで作られているpeppermint groveのルームフレグランスと相まって幻想的な雰囲気を生み出しています。ベランダにはハンモックがあり、そこで読書して過ごしました。川に置いてあるカヌーでも自由に遊べますし、テニスコートもあって受付にあるラケットとボールを借りてテニスもできます。植物に囲まれた中に温水プールもあり、そこで泳ぐこともできます。tree houseに泊まりましたが、十分満足出来ます。river houseはもっと良いかもしれません。深夜にチェックインしましたが、駐車場まで出迎えてくれ、チェックアウトも朝5時と早かったですが、5時前に部屋を訪ねてくれ荷物を車まで運んでくれ、朝食のお弁当も持たせてくれました。本当に非の付け所のない素晴らしいリゾートです。

Wonderful rainforest getaway

Posted 15-Jul-2016
Pros: The staff were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were well appointed and easy to use. The food at the restaurant was delicious.
Location: Fantastic location, easy access to great walking trails and beaches. We used the push bikes to ride to Mossman Gorge which was easy and enjoyable.
We had four lovely nights at Silky Oaks. The lodge provided excellent facilities and service. It was a perfect, relaxing getaway in a private setting. Perfect for couples wanting to escape crowds.
