Fodor's Review

Cocooned in national parkland, this Advanced Ecotourism–certified hotel has luxe tree houses and suites clustered around an expansive open-sided lodge, day spa, and lagoon pool. All accommodations have tropically inspired furnishings in rosewood and oak, mini-bars, aromatherapy-oil burners, and balconies. Upgraded tree houses and suites come with polished timber floors, large hot tubs, rain-forest showers, and bigger balconies with hammocks and daybeds. The Lodge's open-sided Tree House bar and restaurant serves gourmet breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Full breakfasts and a raft of activities (river snorkeling, bicycles, tennis, and, in season, guided walks and morning yoga) are included in the price. The tour desk can arrange excursions by horseback, helicopter, or hot-air balloon, as well as cruises, Aboriginal-guided rain-forest walks, and adventure activities.
