Natalie Gruzlewski, host of 'Getaway' and 'Farmer Wants a Wife'Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is definitely a favourite getaway of mine to immerse myself in pure luxury in the middle of the rainforest. Nestled at the base of the spectacular Springbrook Mountain National Park, CCRR is a unique luxury experience like no other. From lush tropical rainforest and tranquil waterfalls that surround your private Luxury Mountain View Lodge to the incredible attention to detail and first class service by hosts Mark and Bronny, a weekend at CCRR is not to be missed.

My wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary and couldn't have selected a better location. Nestled at the base of the Springbrook range and embedded within the rainforest it was a wonderful place to recharge our batteries.

We stayed in one of the Creek Side Spa Cabin (Quandong). This bungalow very private, well appointed and had enormous windows in the bedroom and bathroom, bringing the rainforest inside, to you.

Whilst I am sure the food is excellent, we decided to self-cater, the kitchen had everything we needed to make this easy.

Our hosts were very helpful and welcoming.

I would thoroughly recommend a stay at Crystal Creek to anyone.

Room Tip: Any room would be good

Peace and quiet is exactly what you get here, we had Pavlos limousine take us from Brisbane airport to here, he was great, definitely recommend getting a limo, makes the whole trip so much easier.

We stayed at the Springbrook Mountain View Lodge, which was truly amazing.

The room has all the comforts you would expect from a 5 star resort. We could hear the creeks running from the front veranda which had a way of putting you to sleep in the afternoons.

Definitely recommend this place if you want a relaxing, private time away.

Just recommend bringing your own food as the meals are ok although the hampers were great.

We absolutely loved our stay here. Stunning scenery and very friendly staff. We drove down from Coolangatta Airport and the Retreat was very easy to find. We loved sitting out on the deck, listening to the sounds of nature. Would highly recommend a massage if you're thinking of having one. Divine!

Expensive. But worth the money. Truly magnificent. Hardly saw another soul for entire stay; even though place was full. So very quite and relaxing. Enjoyed some wonderful food and wine. Relaxed in spa a LOT. Managed a few rainforest walks. Perfect stay. Watch out for leeches in the river!

Room Tip: All rooms are good rooms. You cannot choose a bad one.

We stayed for five nights in a Creekside Bungalow (Quandong). This is a truly rare place where the reality exceeds the expectation. One of the most beautiful and peaceful places we have been. The accommodation was wonderful (though we did sneak a peak at the Mountain Lodge and will book there next time - it looked amazing) the atmosphere of total seclusion and privacy was great. The bath and bedroom being almost all glass was a wonderful relaxing and open experience. We self catered which was fine, the cabin had everything we needed. We did the walks, and they are a good challenge. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Wifi was marginal, but we didn't go there to stuff about on the internet.

As a frequent traveller, I find myself questioning more and more how some hotels have achieved their supposed 5* status, and often find myself disappointed with staff or amenities. Crystal Creek was the perfect antidote! From the moment we arrived, to when we left (kicking and screaming!) our stay here was fabulous. The peace and serenity of the resort is unrivalled, I can't remember the last time I felt so relaxed. The cabins are beautiful and so unusual, very spacious and well kept. The floor to ceiling windows truly make the 'jungle' experience (while still feeling safe inside!). We found everything we needed was readily available - a well equipped kitchen, BBQ, patio loungers, jacuzzi bath... We really couldn't ask for much more. As it was my birthday my partner had secretly arranged that while we were out on one of the resorts forest walks the room would be filled with candles and rose petals, which was a wonderful surprise to come back to! The whole cabin filled with tiny tea lights and a bottle of champagne was awaiting us. I loved that you are able to keep the engraved champagne flutes to remember the wonderful stay. You really don't need to leave the resort during your stay - from rainforest walks, to hammocks above the creek and a very well stocked DVD library! All in all it was the perfect stay and I would highly recommend for any special occasion.

We loved our stay here, loved sleeping to the sound of waterfalls. The food here is fabulous- definitely wouldn't go hungry. There are so many luxuries, too many to name. Such a great place to be off the grid for our honeymoon. Thank you for creating such a beautiful place.

This place is so beautiful, thank you for a lovely few days. We especially liked the hike to the look out, the food and relaxing in the hammocks at the creek.

How sad to have to leave this amazing place! What a perfect holiday. Dipped in the swimming holes (rain and shine) and tracked to the lookout. Loved it!!
