Incredible and Idyllic
Incredible Lodge. We loved it. We stayed in the River Treehouse and it was great. The river was low b/c it hasn’t rain much. The service was outstanding. We stayed 4 nights and ate in the hotel everyday for breakfast and every evening for dinner. The food was very good. We went on a hike on the property and it was well worth it. We walked down to the river and waded in. We were extremely happy with staying in the Rainforest as opposed to Port Douglas and were glad we chose Silky Oaks. It exceeded our expectations.
