My partner and I only spent one night here, but it was definitely what we wanted during the middle of our busy holiday. We found the villa to be as described - spacious (yet cosy), clean and private. I requested villa 6 during the booking after reading other reviews on Trip Advisor, but during the booking I was asked 'does...

We needed a break from the hustle and bustle of our busy working life. Two days at The Escarpment was plenty of time to get back our mojo and return to our hectic lifestyle. Service was impeccable, every request dealt with efficiently and in a friendly attentive manner. Breakfast was wonderful and flavoursome. We are seasoned travellers and would put...

"Award winning" and "Luxury" are definitely not words I would associate with our stay at Escarpment. Its the little things that make a place luxurious. Customer service for one. Whilst the lady behind the counter was kind of nice, it was only to the bare minumum and could quite easily be seen as kind of rude. No effort, nothing extra,...

Beautiful, secluded and quiet, this is an ideal couples getaway set in the rainforest on the edge of a breathtaking escarpment with views to the Gold Coast. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed with four poster bed, comfortable lounge area, private balcony and luxury bathroom with spa bath. We couldn't believe the sound of the rainforest at night, alive...

We stayed in one of the chalet villas. It was very private and the staff don’t intrude at all, which was exactly what we were after. The décor was very nice, and doesn’t feel like a hotel – rather, your own log cabin. Great to have a fire place all ready for us to light. There is a kitchenette, so...

So happy to hear that you really really enjoyed your romantic villa. They are designed for folk to get away from the world and find their own little private paradise. Self catering is always a balance for us between giving guests a chance to escape from the norm, ie we now provide in-house two course dining that is delivered in...

The villas a tucked away in amongst the beautiful gardens. The villas are large, clean, beautifully decorated and had everything you could need in them for a romantic getaway. The breakfast in the morning was perfect, not too much not to little and very delicious. I would recommend the Escarpment to anyone who was looking to get away for a...

The rooms are beautiful and secluded. A fire place with a large comfy bed and a large private spa makes it very relaxing. At anytime there can only be 6 couples staying so there is very little crowd to contend with. A great breakfast to start each day helped.

Quite a nice place to stay, felt it lacked a bit of warmth and the grounds and structures were looking tired and in need of some freshening up, maintenance and basic TLC. The water ways etc were not looking the most attractive but probably due more to the lack of rain fall I suppose. The breakfast was lovely, but we...
