We had an amazing spa experience followed by a brief but wonderful stay at the hotel. The whole experience was first rate, particularly the very personalised service. Thank you to all of the team at Spicers Tamarind!

There are lots of beautiful places to visit and if it was just geography or food or architecture, Spicer's Tamarind Resort would rate up there. The element that puts it into the stratosphere as a getaway is the people who run and work in the resort. From the kick-off they were just sensational with nothing too much trouble. You would...

I visited Tamarind Retreat for a executive team retreat in December. It was perfect for a true corporate retreat. Amazing setting. They set the conference room up for us lounge style. Our meals were fabulous; some in the restaurant while others were brought unobtrusively into the room. We enjoyed some drinks around an outdoor fire pit in the evening. The...

The property itself is great, with all the items that a thoughtful host provides for guests. Heated towel rails, comfortable bed, ... The down pillow that I had was too high for my liking and the other pillows were no better. I would have liked a pillow menu so I could have had one that suited my neck better. The...

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...
