The sunken spa, privacy - all very romantic. Tucked away from everything. Cosy and quaint. Not cheap. Possibly basic breaky supplies, better toilet paper and a coffee maker could be included. Enjoyed staying there very much. Only 10-15 min to restaurant precinct.

A lovely hidden spot. A place to relax and feel the quiet. Massage and other luxuries are available too. Chateau was comfortable. Home away from home. Highly recommended for those who want to have a couple of days away from the hussle and bussle.

Hello jpayn44 thank you for reviewing us, your words have helped me immensely with the way our accounting system displays amounts. I hope I am able to clear the $59 charge up as it was not a cleaning charge but the amount for your two meals, fruit plate and pretzels which you ordered. The package you booked for $844 included...

Friendly, honest and kind service. When we had an issue with the spa bath they were more then happy to help and move us to another cabin. And offered extra services to compensate. Quiet and secluded area. Really good value for money when we added the hearty breakfast option. Room was a little dusty but didn't taint the experience. Bed... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A private Mountain hideaway amongst 16 acres in the Heart of Australia's Nature Coast. Just 10 minutes behind golden beaches of the Sunshine Coast, offering superb mountain chalets. Amytis Gardens provides the ultimate getaway. Cooking classes for the foodies, and a Day Spa to restore your bodies energies - nurturing massages, face and body spa therapies are a must. Chef prepared meals are available for those of you who wish to escape the kitchen, and breakfast baskets available. Four Chalets, well appointed with sunken spa bath and crackling fire place offer a complete escape sanctuary. Each elevated chalet is decorated in a French Provincial theme, with the Australian treetops your view from the indulgent sunken spa bath. Polished timber floors sweep throughout to reach exquisite Argentine hand painted glass window features. A panel of white shutters separate lounge from bedroom giving you that holiday feeling. Not to mention the radiating warmth of your wood fireplace keeping you toasty on winter days. Equipped for comfort with kitchenette & dishwasher facilities, you have the freedom to make a snack or your own personal banquet if you desire. Relax with a book on your private balcony or take a leisurely swim in our ozone treated swimming pool - float away looking up to clear blue skies and cool native Eucalypts. You can even keep in touch with the office ...if you must. The chalets are air-conditioned and have screened wooden louvers to catch the cool of the summer breeze. Native birds surround your Chalet (including a few cheeky kookaburras...), and local wild-life are frequent visitors to our natural coastal region. Escape back to nature with simple luxuries within reach at Amytis Gardens. ... more   less
