With the stresses of modern life washed away, your mind and body are gently transported to a more peaceful place. Feeling more connected – more alive – you retreat to your spacious private villa, where the luxuries are exquisitely elevated. The east meets west aesthetic, lush rainforest and nearby waterfall remind you of an Asian escape, and the smells and spices of the Thai influenced cuisine complete the picture of tranquillity.
Nestled in the cool, leafy mountain climes of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland, Spicers Tamarind Retreat is a welcome sanctuary of relaxation and reinvigoration. A soothing Asian ambiance permeates throughout the stunning grounds, beautiful rooms and main guest house, whilst an imaginative restaurant forms the centrepiece of this magnificent retreat.
Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by the cool garden ponds, trickling fountains, wooden boardwalks and drooping palms that encircle the guest lounge pavilion and dining areas.

The secluded 22 rooms spread across 14 private villas are your own personal oasis: here you’ll be immersed in endless luxuries that provide the perfect antidote to busy lives. Throughout you’ll find luxury linens, deep garden view bathtubs, sun drenched day beds and open fireplaces, whilst in the two person Falls Villas, you’ll also discover Japanese style cedar hot tubs.
