What an amazing place to spend my birthday weekend! Spicers always know how to make you feel very special! The restaurant was sensational- I'll definitely be back! The Villas were very tranquil in their rainforest setting.

Food is amazing, service to match - in a really peaceful and pitcheresque location. No stunning views but very pretty and just calming. Lots of wildlife too. Asian inspired modern Australian with a massive twist.

My husband and I spent a night at Spicers Tamarind and wish we'd been able to make it two! The welcoming was amazing and our rainforest villa was quiet and peaceful....just what we needed to chill out and relax. Plenty of room to have our own space for reading and napping and a lovely balcony to enjoy a picnic lunch...

It all started with a pleasant drive to the understated and naturally beautiful property. Check in was seamless and soon we were off to he Spa for our 90...

Our visit to Spicers Tamarind Retreat was one of relaxation and romance. We went for our 30th Wedding anniversary and just loved the peacefulness of the surroundings. The restaurant there was outstanding.The staff were so friendly and made us feel very welcome and at home. We had a beautiful few days and would recommend it highly. We will return.

This Spicer's did not disappoint. Just outstanding food and overall ambience. The signature duck dish is the best I've ever had - simply exquisite. Ditto the entree of deboned quail. This chef really deserves his hats - he is very very talented. Pool area could do with an upgrade - it's not that appealing but our room was lovely -...

Gorgeous location, beautiful accomodation, and sensational food. We stayed on one of the two night packages that includes a degustation dinner at Tamarind and Long Apron and it was wonderful. We stayed in one of the rainforest villas, which was beautifully appointed and very comfortable. I can't think of anything I would change.

My partner and I recently stayed at Spicer's Tamarind in a falls villa. This amazing property oozes relaxation and luxury with hints of south east asia influences. Our room was warm and inviting and the cedar hot tub on the deck was definitively a high light. Added with the chocolate coated strawberries, red roses, champagne and a luxury goodie pamper...
