Weekends For Two
Truly magical rainforest retreat
by Kate Atherton
It’s a rare opportunity to find a luxury rainforest retreat offering the three special ingredients that make a truly magical getaway.
Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat offers true privacy, with the stunning individual luxury bungalows strategically placed to ensure total seclusion. Combine that with a superb location and the fact that the retreat only caters for up to seven couples all seeking to escape, and you simply can’t go wrong.
There are three styles of unique architect-designed bungalows to choose from, all located within the dense canopy, ensuring privacy and providing natural exposure to the forest while guests can remain cosy and relaxed indoors.
The bungalow’s natural timbers exude warmth, with the open plan design providing spacious living areas inside and out.
Floor to ceiling glass windows in all bathrooms allow you to take in the natural environment, while still enjoying total privacy, and a generous double spa bath enables you to dissolve the stresses of life.
Take in the sparkling stars at night or enjoy the gorgeous warm days and experience the fresh mountain air and revitalize while exploring the exquisite rainforest surrounds. Immerse yourself in the natural environment, with more than eight kilometres of pristine private walking tracks through the retreat’s 250 acre property.
The retreat is surrounded on three sides by World Heritage-listed national park; visitors can walk as far as they like or not leave the comfort of the retreat’s bungalows at all.
The bungalows all feature king sized beds, plush doonas, heaters, flat screen television and DVD as well as a full sound system with universal IPOD docking stations.
The kitchens are fully equipped for self catering or perhaps indulge in the retreat’s range of gourmet dinners and dinner hampers, freshly prepared and delivered to your bungalow for an intimate candlelit dinner.
Crystal Creek Rainforest Retreat is located just 45 minutes from Gold Coast Airport or 55 minutes from Byron Bay.
