Pethers was an incredible retreat hidden away in a beautiful spot in the rainforest in North Tamborine. We were so impressed by the huge romantic room and wonderful staff that treated us so well. The restaurant onsite was also incredible and we likened it to the quality of fine dining restaurants in Brisbane. We would highly recommend this property for...

I recently performed a Wedding Ceremony here - the staff were fantastic. The wedding was set to be outside in one of the gardens, but unfortunately the weather turned - but it was no problem for the staff - they set up the fire in the restaurant and the wedding was performed on the balcony - just perfect.

Wonderful staff, wonderful location, nothing too much trouble. We stayed for a long weekend and left so refreshed and relaxed. The layout of the treehouses are amazing - so private and quiet. I would recommend this retreat to any couple who would like to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and just chill and relax.

I could hardly believe the size, location and layout of the beautifully designed "treehouse" that awaited us at the end of the path through the forest. Such a tranquil setting! The huge glass wall, spa bath, balcony and furniture all made for a luxurious break for my partner and I. Highly recommended.

Romantic escape set in wonderful rainforest setting. Incredible birdlife and extremely comfortable villas providing all luxuries. Make sure you are there when restaurant is open as food is exceptional. Staff friendly and efficient. Breakfast delivered to your room and enjoyable.Entry road challenging if you have a low car and speed bumps OTT.

I had been to Pethers before and loved it! However, return visit for 2 nights was not as expected. Arrived at 6pm to an envelope with my name scrawled on it sitting on front desk with keys, letter and map to the cabin inside. Found our way to the cabin (beautiful just as remembered), however the cheese platter was not...

Pethers R, General Manager at Pethers Rainforest Retreat, responded to this review

Thank you for taking the time to review Pethers. Standard check-in time is from 2pm, with our reception staffed until 5pm every evening. Standard practice is to contact late arrivals, which we did without success, and provide an arrival letter, keys and directions to the tree house. Due to the boutique nature of our business, it is not viable to...

We had our wedding at Pethers a few days ago. There is something magical about the whole place. From the friendly staff , beautiful cabins to the great food. This is THE place to go. Some our guests even saw wallabies on their deck whilst they were having breakfast. We are very glad that we chose this place and will...

A very nice spacious room with a view in the jungle. The restaurant in this hotel is also good a shame that the service in the restaurant was not to the standard for this kind of hotel. But OK perhaps that they where short in employees during our stay.
