The Daintree Rainforest Retreat is a small family owned motel. It sits nestled in the forest surrounded by towering trees and lush gardens. While we do not have a restaurant we do offer a covered BBQ area with its own sitting area and a fully equipped and comfortable communal kitchen together with 2 further sitting/dining areas. The Cow Bay Hotel is a 2 minute walk and while it is very close, it can be neither seen nor heard from the motel. Our rooms are cooled by ceiling fans and guests can further escape the tropical heat with a dip in our palm fringed swimming pool. We look forward to seeing you.

Stayed 3 days recently, room was super comfortable and clean, with microwave, kettle, fridge, etc. We utilised the bbq facilities in the garden gazebo. The lovely host, Em gave us helpful tips and map of Daintree. We really loved the feel of this small motel/retreat. Of course, due to Covid the area was very quiet, and sadly some businesses were closed, but what a beautiful part of Australia.

Enjoyed 5 nights here, comfortable and clean and great hosts, perfect location for exploring this beautiful part of the world. Nice pool and very relaxing place to stay would definitely recommend staying here, The Cow Bay Hotel across the road serves good meals or bbq facilities at the retreat are good.

Very quiet, a good place to relax. The rooms were very clean, the owners most helpful and we appreciated the peace and quiet. The pool was a great bonus as the ocean and creeks can’t be swum in at this time of the year.

We had a wonderful time at the Daintree Rainforest retreat which offers a rainforest experience at a very fair price. The retreat is in a great location for easy access throughout the Daintree park. The retreat has recently been taken over by new owners and our hosts were lovely welcoming people who offered us the opportunity to become travelers and not just tourists. Thank you for the great travel memories and we wish the new owners much success

reasonably priced, great location, clean, well-presented rooms. The rooms appear to be individually furnished. Manager and other staff are very friendly and go out of their way to please. Far enough off the road to escape traffic noise. Grounds and amenities are great, from the pool to the barbeque area.
