The elegant solar-powered treehouses at this impeccably-run boutique retreat invite relaxation and romance. All come with king-size, Balinese-style beds swathed in white mosquito-netting, under-floor lighting, fridges, and sea-breezy balconies overlooking the Coral Sea or rain forest. There are no TVs or karaoke nights here; just a cacophony of birdcalls and several quiet walking trails, rain-forest waterholes, and unspoiled beaches to explore. Mingle with fellow guests
around the infinity-edge pool (with pool bar) and at low-key evening drinks around the Lodge's Python Bar, crafted from osewood mahogany. Breakfasts include fresh fruit, cereal, organic yoghurt, and fresh-baked pastries with home-made jams, but after that you're on your own foodwise (bringing a vehicle, or at least provisions, is a must). Your host can arrange tours, reef trips and restaurant bookings.
