If you are looking for a nice relaxing, romantic, rejuvenating place to stay, then look no further than this place! After returning to Escarpment for the 4th time in about as many years, I was pleased to see nothing has changed. Such a great location, great hospitality and the perfect getaway with a special partner. We were spoilt with a...

An amazing pamper-filled weekend in a luxurious, well appointed villa with a view to die for! The villa had an awesome double spa bath, a great comfortable four-poster draped bed & of course the romantic fireplace. We needed nothing more! The hot cooked breakfasts were delicious, the staff were friendly, helpful & efficient. Definitely a recommended getaway destination!

wo what a truly memorable relaxing stay. Rooms are beautiful. Winter time recommended as there is the log fire & spa in the room. Beautiful location with alot of privacy with your own villa, quite relaxing place with lots to explore in Mt Tambourine.

Do yourself a favour, go here. This great secluded three bedroom lowset house sits on the edge on Mt Tamborine. If is privacy your after this is for you, the property sits at the end of a short drive past the villas, well away from everyone else. Hosts Gary and Caroline were welcoming and keen to assist with anything we...

From the friendly check in to the stunning Vila our over night getaway started perfectly. After a relaxing night including a spa and drinks on our private deck I didn't think this time away could get better but it did when we slept in for a 8.30am sensational breakfast followed by a lovely walk ending with a swing while taking...

Very romantic! Gary was extremely sweet and helpful upon check in! The Escarpment has everything you need for a nice romantic getaway. We stayed in Villa 5. Very roomy villa with high ceilings, fireplace and relaxing hot tub. I know some of the other reviews mention privacy but the way the villas are situated, I really don't think anyone can...

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Breakfast is between 8:30am-9:30am. This usually suits early and late risers. For health and safety reasons, we have an obligation to keep our foods fresh and so cannot keep our buffet (which consists of highly perishable foods such as dairy) open more than an hour. Our guests' health and safety is our...

A beautiful romantic setting amongst the bush. Rooms are large, comfy and cosy. Great big comfy bed and a fireplace and spa bath. Gardens around windows could provide a bit more privacy, however it was obvious that there was landscaping in progress. Our villa (2) would have been even lovelier with the water feature running. Enjoyed a massage with foot...

We visited the escarpment retreat for our 5th wedding anniversary and had a beautiful relaxing time. The staff were very accommodating and made us feel very welcome. The room was exactly what we were after, a cabin with a fireplace which made it very cosy. The room was getting a little old and had a bit of a musty smell...

Beautiful place to stay. It's very quiet and relaxing with amazing views and the rooms are very cozy. I will highly recommend staying at the escarpment retreat but remember to take some warm cloths as it can be cold being in a rainforest environment.

A great place to switch off (we did literally - no phones or screens for 3 days). The morning we couldn't make breakfast Gary rustled us up a morning snack the night before - my husband was impressed. After my spa treatment I emerged totally chilled out and the therapist had Googled how best we should travel to Sea World....
