These eco-luxury accommodations welcome socially responsible travelers in Tropical North Queensland.
Located within Australia’s verdant Daintree Rainforest National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Silky Oaks Lodge provides an earth-friendly yet highly stylish escape. Sitting on the banks of the Mossman River, the lodge-style hotel makes the most of its natural scenery with accommodations and dining venues that open out onto views of the water and trees. Green living and sustainable practices are a high priority, with efforts including organic bathroom amenities, electric buggies for on-site transportation and a comprehensive recycling program.
The distinctively designed guest accommodations have a delightful tree house feel and come with marble en-suite bathrooms, appealing timber details and private terraces and hammocks overlooking the river and rainforest. Guests enjoy complimentary access to mountain bikes, canoes, yoga classes, fitness facilities and other recreational pursuits. A daily gourmet breakfast is part of the package, and for lunch and dinner, the open-air Treehouse Restaurant highlights local produce, seafood and Australian wines. Against a lush, garden backdrop, the Healing Waters Spa taps into native rainforest resources to nurture mind, body and spirit with a sense of sacred ceremony.
