Very nice cottages in Mossman Gorge.

Posted 26-Dec-2015
Pros: The ambience and the environs.
Cons: Attention to detail in the room. Beds need attention.
Location: The location is a stone's throw to Port Douglas, the Daintree, Mossman Gorge and the Great Barrier Reef
This is a lodge with a main building then with each room being a separate cottage situated around the property. We stayed in a "river" cottage which positioned us with a view of the Mossman river. Our rate included full breakfast from a buffet or a menu. The buffet was excellent! We had dinner on 1 evening and we were quite disappointed. The staff was a bit surly and selection was minimal. The dining room is open air and there were no bugs to speak of. There is wi-fi in the main building, which is free but slow. The rooms were nicely furnished. Floors were beautiful silky oak, the bathroom was clean and enticing. The cottage had a balcony with chairs and a hammock. The room had sliding glass doors with sliding screens. There is a beautiful swimming pool on property built into a grove of plants and trees. Our arrival was heavenly............we were walked to our cottage where new age music was playing on a Bose Wave, candles were lit in the room and on the balcony and the A/C was on. There was a list of things to do plus the lodge would take you several places if you had no car. There is a spa on premises however we did not check it out. The only con was the walking from the cottage to the main lodge, although a golf cart could have been called. It was extremely up and down on the path and a physically challenged individual would have a difficult time on the paths.

森の中でのゆったりとした空間

Posted 09-Dec-2015
なかなか落ち着いていて自然の中でゆったりとした普段は味わえない時間は過ごせると思います。散策とか沢登りとか軽いアウトドアもできて、来るなら早い時間に訪問するのがいいと思います。周りには何にもないので夕飯はここのレストランで食べることになると思いますが味はいいです。 その他は当然虫は多いですが部屋には出ませんでした。12月で一泊5万以上とまあまあな金額は出しているのでそれなりによい気分は味わえます。

Amazing anniversary at Silky Oaks Lodge

Posted 15-Nov-2015
Pros: The views, the balcony and hammock, the pool, and the billabong beach/river.
Cons: Perhaps more variety with the breakfast and free Wi-Fi.
Location: Private location away from it all. You can stay by the pool, swim in the river, or take a beautiful walk up to the Daintree.
My husband and I spent 2 nights at Silky Oaks Lodge and it exceeded our expectations. The hotel grounds were amazing with stunning views. Each morning we woke up to the beautiful sounds of the rainforest. I particularly loved swinging on the balcony in the hammock with those views. The pool was beautiful and the billabong private beach was just amazing. So fresh! We had a long swim there and also went for a short canoe ride around the river.

2度目の訪問

申し分ないホテルでした。 モスマン渓谷散策を制覇しきれていないので また訪れたいと思います。お料理がオーストラリアにしては少な目で物足りない感じがしました。

A holiday in the forest

Posted 18-Sep-2015 on Hotels
Unique, mystical and captivating is this resort. It is being at an exclusive luxury camp. The cabins are with polished floors, jacuzzi tubs and balconies with comfy hammocks. The ambience of being in the world of wild life throughout the night is thrilling. Rachel is a special gift to Silky Oaks Lodge, helping me plan exciting trips
