Fodor's Review

Cocooned in national parkland, this Advanced Ecotourism–certified hotel ha 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. Pricier 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 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 activites.
