We took the 2 night all inclusive package at Narrows and enjoyed our experience. It is located in a nice quiet region of Montville amongst the forest with a creek flowing through the back. Check in was a breeze and we had our own dedicated parking. The lodge was well setup with all amenities imaginable including a comprehensive breakfast hamper with fresh croissants each morning, wine, cheese platter, selection of teas and coffees, juice and snacks. The cabin had its own full size spa bath and a log fire. Dinner on Day 1 was a three course meal at a nearby restaurant Altitude which included pickup and drop off. The food and ambience were great. We started Day 2 with a quick hike of Lake Baroon lookout which is very close to Narrows followed by a relaxing 60min massage in our cabin which was part of our package. Dinner on day 2 was in house with a lamb curry cooked to perfection by Ali (one of the owners) and it was served in the cabin along with various accompanying sides and desserts. Overall we had a real good time with everything well thought out by Ali and Xochi and all amenities imaginable provided for. Would highly recommend Narrows.

Dear Satyaki B, Wow, we are blown away by your lovely words about your stay at Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat on our Lovestruck package that includes breakfast, dinners, and a 60minute couples massage. The walk up to Baroon lookout is such a lovely way to explore the Kondalilla National Park from the doorstep of Narrows Escape. This is a lovely 40min - 60min walk. We also highly recommend the 12km hike from Kondallilla falls back to Baroon Pocket Dam and we are always happy to drop guests at the Kondalilla end so they can hike back to Narrows Escape. You'll have to try that one next time! And you did it in style, as there is no better way than to finish off a morning hike than with an afternoon massage. Ali's Lamb Curry is amazing, it's an authentic recipe from his hometown in Jaisalmer, India. We are so grateful and can't thank you enough for highly recommending Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat to others. Best wishes, Ali and Xochi

My new husband and I booked the Lovestruck package (2nights) for the first leg of our honeymoon. Being able to sit out by the trees, listen and watch the birds and enjoy delicious food and drink in an intimate treehouse setting was perfect. The food was great and felt spoilt with the fresh croissants in the morning. Interactions with Ali & Xochi (though minimal) showed us their care and attention to provide a relaxing and enjoyable retreat. Absolutely lovely people! We haven't felt so relaxed (what with the in-house massages) in a very long time and would easily come back again - but next time, we need to make it a longer stay!

Dear isabeloL5018BE, Thank you so much, you have no idea the joy it brought to us to read your lovely words about your stay at Narrows Escape. We are so happy that you enjoyed the Lovestruck package and all its inclusions. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience with others. Yes please come back!! Next time you might like to try our Hinterland Highlights package, its an extra night and has extra little luxuries, including 90minute side by side massages and two fine dining experiences! We hope the relaxed feeling stays with you for a while and you know where to come when you need to properly unwind from the chaos of a busy modern life. Best wishes, Ali and Xochi

My husband and I enjoyed the Honeymoon Heaven package at Narrows Escape and the name perfectly described our experience. The cabin was clean, private and stocked with so much delicious food. The in-house dinners were DELICIOUS especially Ali's Lamb Curry! Every meal provided to us was huge (we couldn't finish it) and scrumptious. The Wagtail cabin is set up to allow for total privacy even though you are being delivered almost every meal. The massages and picnic included in our package were so thoughtfully put together that it makes the experience even more enjoyable. Ali and Xochi are so welcoming and friendly, making you instantly feel at home. The little touches like the bird seed to feed the local wildlife, a cheese board on arrival, transfers to the local restaurants and fresh pastries delivered every morning top the whole experience off. We cannot recommend staying here enough!

Dear DahniDallas, It was such a pleasure to host you both for your Honeymoon!! We are over the moon that your stay was 'perfection'! We are so happy that you enjoyed all the package inclusions like the picnic and dinners. Yes, Ali's Lamb Curry is the best thing on the menu! It is a great authentic Rajasthani curry and it is definitely becoming the most popular dish amongst our guests. You are such a lovely couple and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together! We hope to see you back at Narrows Escape for some special occasions or anniversaries. Best wishes, Xochi

We got the love struck package and stayed in butcherbird villa. Ali and Xochi showed what amazing hosts they were with wonderful hospitality, experiences and amenities. For a lover of natural Qld this was the ultimate get away from busy life. Food was delicious at the villa and at the Montville Bar and Grill. Can’t wait to come back again!W

Dear jakkil2016, We love that you had the 'perfect anniversary'. Narrows Escape Rainforest Retreat is certainly an amazing spot for QLD nature lovers, as the villas are just tucked into some beautiful rainforest and the sound of the birdlife is extraordinary. We have just launched a 4-day hike (5-night stay) of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland Great Walk - you should have a look as it is an incredibly beautiful part of the world and the guide is so knowledgeable about all the local flora and fauna. That combined with amazing dining experiences in the Hinterland and 5 nights at Narrows Escape makes an incredible experience! We would love to welcome you back! Best wishes, Ali and Xochi
